    I recently stumbled across this band completely by accident, and I'm really glad I did. Pretty unusual (to me at least, as I've never heard of anything similar) in that they combine the sound of power metal and operatic style vocals with lyrical themes/imagery more commonly found in black metal, as well as Romanian werewolf legends. I'm hoping to get their albums next week, so if anyone here is familiar with them then feel free to share your thoughts. And if anyone knows of any other bands similar to this one, recommendations would be greatly appreciated :)

    I've heard of these guys before Pixel...kind of remind of Iced Earth when it comes to their subject material.

    (I added some pictures to your OP for you.;))

    This is a band I can definitely get into. I love the vocals. I gave Dead Boys Don't Cry. Cool thread, Pixel.

    Cheers both, glad you liked it :) I was intrigued by this, I really didn't think something like this could work. I love the vocals too, I think this guy's voice is amazing :)

    No probs Lou :grinthumb

    I now have a copy of Blood Of The Saints and Bible Of The Beast, so I'll share my thoughts on those once I've listened to them.

    Re: Powerwolf

    You should give the two albums I mentioned in my previous post a try DKW, I love them both.

    They have also done operatic/orchestral versions of a couple of the songs I uploaded, in such a way that you'd never guess in a million years they were actually power metal if you were unfamiliar with the band. I don't really listen to operatic music, but these versions are brilliantly done and work really well. It's too late to be looking for them now, but I'll see if I can find one or two in the morning to upload.
