Powerwolf are a power metal band who mix the pompous with the profane and bring in some seriously heavy riffage and sweet, sweet melody into the mix as well. On Best of the Blessed, fans are treated to not only the standard best of setlist, but also several newly re-recorded versions of classics and an entire CD dedicated to showing off how good Powerwolf are live.
New versions of “We Drink Your Blood,” “Werewolves of Armenia,” “Saturday Satan,” “Kiss of the Cobra King,” and that festival classic “Resurrection By Erection,” show off the polish and steel that Powerwolf have become known for, whilst also bringing a little bit of a new taste to them in 2020.
The second and third CDs which contains the live setlist, sees Powerwolf embrace their inner demons and simply explode into greatness through 18 songs of pure perfection. Songs such as opener “Fire and Forgive,” and “Armata Strigoi,” are particular highlights. Whilst songs such as “Army of the Night,” and “Let There Be Night,” show just how well Powerwolf know their audience, they are perfect finishers.
This gem of an album comes out on 3rd July via Napalm Records, be sure to get it!
