German power metal legends Powerwolf have announced Best Of The Blessed, a 'greatest hits' package featuring some of the band's best known songs. It's due for release on Napalm Records on June 5.

Best Of The Blessed will feature many Powerwolf classics, some in their original form and some re-recorded. Amongst the new versions are We Drink Your Blood, Werewolves Of Armenia, Sanctified With Dynamite and the live classic Resurrection By Erection. Full tracklist below.

The collection will also include The Live Sacrament, a live album recorded during the band's Wolfsnächte tour of 2018, while the 4LP box and 3CD 'Earbook' versions will feature The Live Bonus Sacrament, an EP featuring four more live tracks. Best Of The Blessed is available to pre-order now.

"If you want to start a band, don’t look for musicians, look for friends," keyboardist Falk Maria Schlegel told Hammer last year. "Our friendship would have existed even without the band, the success and everything around it. God knows, we’re not the best musicians, but that's not what makes the character of a band. 

"You need a tangible team spirit, magic, not technical perfection. Every time I enter the tour bus it feels like I'm going on an excursion with my best friends - that's how it should be."
