Powerwolf is a German power metal/metal band, formed by the brothers Charles and Matthew Greywolf, the band spent a lot of time doing nothing until they met up with a Romanian vocalist called Attila Dorn. Attila Dorn came from a classical background, when he met up with the Greywolf brothers he expressed an interest in metal and followed them back to Germany which is when Powerwolf took off.POWERWOLF GENRES
The band released their first album in April 2005, entitled Return in Bloodred.
Powerwolf were influenced by 1980's metal acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Accept, Venom and Mercyful Fate.
They are signed to Metal Blade Records whom expressed an interest when they heard a German group was working with a Romanian classical singer to create a metal group.
The line up is as follows:
Attila Dorn - Vocals
Matthew Greywolf – Guitar
Charles Greywolf – Bass Guitar
Falk Maria Schlegel – Organ
Stéfane Funèbre – Drums
They are currently writing a followup album to Return in Bloodred which is due to be released sometime in 2006/7. The new album will be out on 7th May and it's called Lupus Dei. The band furthers the combination of classic heavy metal bands and adds a unique touch to the music. Imagine King Diamond's atmosphere and keyboards combined with Dio's catchiness and you're about halfway there.
