Lonewolf: The Fourth and Final Horseman
Lonewolf - The Fourth and Final Horseman Album Review

Lonewolf: The Fourth and Final Horseman

Heavy/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

There seems to be a theme here. Call Lonewolf's latest The Fourth and Final Horseman, Army of the Damned part deux. It's more of their same traditional melodic heavy power metal and songs of war and death. If you're not up to speed on your Biblical references, the fourth horseman of the apocalypse is death.

Lonewolf: big fists.

As I often do, having experienced the band before, I returned to the review of the previous album. To my surprise, or not, the very words I was prepared to write for The Fourth and Final Horseman were already written for Army of the Damned, especially the references to Joakim Broden and Sabaton. Crap. What do I say now? I already said that this is more of the same.

So probably the best thing to say is that Lonewolf is consistent, if not merely predictable. It's basic and classic European power metal, with no illusions of being anything different and perfect for outdoor festival headbanging and hair windmilling. It could be better than the previous album, but I'll let that determination lie with their fans. Best tracks: Another Star Means Another Death, Destiny, and the title track. Recommended for traditional metal headbangers, and I'm one of them (without the hair to windmill anymore).
