Whooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuwwww. The wolves are back and again with power. You can call it over the top if you like, you can call it too much of what's good for you, but I like it! Everything is there: the choirs, the bombast, the heroic songs, the religious flirts, the werewolf gimmick and the pompous church organs. All served on a bed of contagious metal riffs packed in Maiden influenced power metal songs. In the ninth song even Running Wild enters my mind.

Romanian opera singer Attila Dorn has again put himself in the spotlight with his grandiose vocal capacities and with the heroic and classic choirs the bombast is complete. With the combination of Latin lyrical parts and church organs/choirs you experience a spiritual feeling. If they are going to play this in a church, I will certainly be sitting in front every God damn Sunday! This is a natural follow up to the 2009 album 'Bible of the Beast', but you can't expect anything else from a band like Powerwolf. Even if you hate this style, I am almost sure that you will have a good time after listening to this album and that it will grab you by the balls. Before you now it, you are partying around, drinking your beers and wondering why your head is banging and your legs are swinging. Contagious, this album is contagious!

The wolves are back and if you are wondering what that sound is somewhere in the north of the Netherlands, it is me howling along with Powerwolf to the full-moon at midnight, searching for fresh blood. Whooooouuuuuwww!
