For a band with this name, the music on the disc is much more middle of the pack then you would expect. A very cheesy Euro metal fest is what you are in for from start to finish. If you are looking for originality or something that is going to make you stand up and take notice then you had better look elsewhere. These guys bring a very listenable power metal display to the table but it is totally a rehash of so many others out there. Sabaton, Helloween, a little Grave Digger, etc... Lonewolf is not bad at what they do but there is just too many out there doing the same thing and they also do it much better.
The main draw back to this band is their lead singer Jens Borner. His growly, gruff delivery grates on you in short order. Musically and lyrically you can put up with the ample amount of cheese factor but Jens vocals really bring this one down.
There is plenty of fist pumping cuts on this album, in fact that is about all you get! From the opening "Lonewolf" to the thunderous "Crawling To Hell" and the dreadful "Hellbent For Metal" the band does manage to give the headbangers reason to keep going. The only problem is that it will go in one ear and out the other while not being retained anywhere in between.
Even though I cannot say that this disc is really bad, it just has nothing to offer other than every cliché you have ever heard in the realm of power metal. Their last four albums were relatively the same though so I cannot see why anyone would expect anything different.
