Staff review by
"I've put on the last album by mistake." These were my initial thoughts when I started listening to Blessed & Possessed; that is just how similar the opening track, "Blessed & Possessed," is to "Amen & Attack" from the previous album, Preachers Of The Night. Unfortunately this feeling of déjà vu continued throughout the rest of the album.

I imagine this will be like there three previous albums: I'll love it, get obsessed and listen to it nonstop for a couple month, then get bored of it and rarely put it on.

Don't think any of their albums have been interesting so far. Haven't listened to this one yet, but I'm inclined to, since those cover songs seem very appealing. TBH those are killer choices as covers.

Armata Strigoi is an awesome anthem. I wish the rest of the album gave me the same feeling...but it doesn't. Still a good release, these guys are good at what they do; like a dark gothic version of Sabaton. Would be enjoyable live.

Not much originality in this album but still many addictive songs and I anticipate a fantastic show when I see them live in a few days.

Noone mentioned Let there be Night as the most original and greatest song of this album? I'm totally fan of it ...

CD1: Originality is 10, great indeed great seems like band is in church sing about bible as, songs are bible stories, and then simply ppl turns into metalhead and maybe werewolf? Nice funny bibble story whit dark touch , great indeed, its same tempo, basically all songs like one and I don't see bad songs here at all ...

CD2: Cover well some worked well some don't, and I know all those songs, have been playing those, radio and its litte boring ....even new interoperation can work just fine for some time. ''dead is heartbeat away'' you need be born in Belfast to know what it means, that song cant be covered, because original is way to strong and powerful.

Very strong release. Second CD is poor indeed, but new songs are nice.

Now can I analyze after hearing all albums
Charles Darwin was right evolution did existed
In morning blasphemer, in midday Satanist , later in eve protestant, in night true believer
I like it maybe less blasphemous album , but most power, less heavy .... old ones was betterm but still strong band and unique, what some lyrical and musical way . Professional band
