After their critically acclaimed #1 charting album in Germany Preachers Of The Night garnered the band many new fans and critical acclaim worldwide, Powerwolf are back with their new masterpiece Blessed & Possessed. The density of anthems on their sixth epic is nearly unchristianly – firing hit after hit. The mystic and bombastic title track “Blessed & Possessed” enthralls the listener from the beginning and leads to a top-flight direction, by presenting metal hymns with emotiveness and pure magic. Powerwolf are bursting with imagination, and have cultivated their well proven trademarks, delivering first class power metal (“Dead Until Dark“), the finest in speed metal (“Christ & Combat“), great hard rock trips (“Sacramental Sister“) and even orchestral madness (“Let There Be Night“). If all of that wasn’t enough for you, the limited first run contains a special bonus CD Metallium Nostrum with eight marvelous cover versions of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, and Judas Priest classics!
