Outstanding German Power Metal

From one of Germany’s 21st century Power Metal contenders; Powerwolf, comes a new live album/cinematic event titled The Monumental Mass. This completely over the top streaming even was captured live, and is now available in multiple formats including a 96 page earbook, 48 page mediabook, deluxe box, vinyl box and even cassette tapes. The band makes a great performance, lead by Attila Dorn (ex-Dragon’s Tongue) on vocals, Charles Greywolf (ex-Flowing Tears) on the bass, Matthew Greywolf (ex-Red Aim) playing guitar, Falk Maria Schlegel Keyboards (ex-The Experience) on keyboards and Roel van Helden (Zero Hour, ex-Delphian) on the drums.

Excellent Live Album

This review only covers the audio portion of the release, and therefore doesn’t paint the full picture. That said, with watching the video and listening to the album it’s pretty easy to get a good idea of the whole package. The concert includes fan favorites “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” “Beast Of Gévaudan,” and top radio hit of their last studio album, “Dancing With The Dead”. The stage sets are pretty incredible and the performances are great.

Final Notes

This live performance is top notch from start to finish. The sound production is amazing, and the band is killing it on stage. With 22 tracks of solid Power Metal, you can’t go wrong adding it to your collection, and with all of the formats, you’re sure to find a way to make it yours.
