Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)
So here we have Lonewolf's sixth long-player, The Fourth and Final Horseman. Just like its predecessor, Army of the Damned, The Fourth and Final Horseman is crunchy European Power Metal from start to finish. This time around the band leans even more heavily on the formula laid down by Grave Digger and, quite frankly, themselves. There is almost nothing separating this album from the one before it and I was actually three songs deep into Army of the Damned, at one point, before I realized I was listening to the wrong album. If you dig melodic, crunchy riffs, a tasty solo here and there and gruff yet clean vocals, The Fourth and Final Horseman is going to suit you fine. If you are looking for innovation, look elsewhere, because it isn't here. There are plenty of clichés to go around, like songs about Vikings ("Dragonriders") or war ("Time for War"), but at least Lonewolf continue to play with a lot of energy.
The Fourth and Final Horseman is fun but ultimately, generic. Nonetheless, fans of Grave Digger, OZ and Lonewolf's previous albums should find it worth a listen.
