2015 Powerwolf interview with Matthew Greywolf
After their critically acclaimed number one charting album Preachers of the Night, Powerwolf are back with their the new masterpiece, Blessed & Possessed. The density of hits and anthems on their sixth epic record is nearly un-Christianly – 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, they have cultivated their well-proven trademarks to deliver first class power metal, “Dead Until Dark“, the finest speed metal, “Christ & Combat“, great hard rock trips, “Sacramental Sister“, and even orchestral madness, “Let There Be Night“. If all of that isn’t enough for you, the limited first run contains a special bonus CD Metallium Nostrum with 10 marvelous cover versions of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest! This is metal at the absolute top!
Powerwolf was formed in 2003 by guitarists and brothers Charles and Matthew Greywolf. The band was rounded out by vocalist Attila Dorn and keyboardist Falk Maria Schlegel. In 2011, drummer Roel van Helden took over stick duties.
Gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated album, Metalholic had a chat with Matthew Greywolf. He discusses Blessed & Possessed, songwriting, historical concepts, musical direction, upcoming tour, power metal scene and much more.
