heavy metal n. 1. heavy guns. 2. metal of high density. 3 (often attrib.) colloq. A type of highly amplified harsh-sounding rock music with a strong beat and frequent theatrical performance. 4. Manowar.
Manowar probably say it best themselves - death to false metal, forever fighting the world. No band has stayed truer to the cause of heavy metal in the past 20 years than Manowar. Bowing to no trend, this band has peddled straightforward metal in the face of opposition from all sides. No compromise, no bulls**t, just metal. For some reason, this attitude has seen Manowar become the object of derision and mirth among many a so-called metal fan.
Y'see, Manowar have this homoerotic thing going on. They dress like rejected extras from a Village People video. A lot of people can't seem to see past the codpieces, rippling muscles and the dodgy leather pants. It's a shame, because behind the codpieces you will find... heavy metal, of the highest order! (If you thought anything else, you have a dirty mind.)
Second best is not good enough for Joey De Maio, self-styled macho man, bass virtuoso and visionary driving force behind Manowar. Here you will find only the best in production values, the best available musicians, and some of the best sounding metal you will ever hear. The definition on this album is crystal clear. It is one of those recordings where you feel the urge to keep turning the volume louder and louder because it sounds so damn good. And anyway, it's Manowar, so "turn it up louder 'til we all get fried"!
Vocalist Eric Adams has a dramatic, theatrical voice, able to hit those oh so metal falsetto screams with ease. The drum sound here is absolutely booming. Even the drum kit is called the Drums of Death. "It is the ultimate drum system in the universe.

First, this recording is about 38 minutes long (same as the lp version) with no extra tracks.
Second, the sound on the cd is as great as the lp version.
Third. My cd contains the lyrics which were on the lp, but is missing the band member names and the dedications, including the one to Orsen Wells (thus the last Manowar recording Mr. Wells did narration on).
This recording features the same fine songwriting and performance found on Battle Hymns, Hail to England.
Some past reviews have stated that Manowar sold out on this recording.
There are no love ballads on this recording or pop tunes with added distortion to make it sound like a metal recording.
If 'selling out' means concentrating on writing great powerful majestic songs, instead of concentrating on trying to make some Wagnerian concept epic recording, thus sometimes resulting in some of the material being nothing more that filler in order to tie things together, then I wish more heavy metal bands would 'sell out' like this.
If quality, not quantity alone is judged, it is one of Manowar's best, it gets a 9/10 for a Manowar recording

Manowar is as cheesey as it gets, but you have to love this album. It is so fun to listen to while chuggin' brews. Carry on and Defender are the standout tracks.

1986. What a year it was. Ronald Reagan and his corrupt cronies, the Challenger disaster, Back to the Future, and so on. But also some controversy from the metal scene. Whether it be the commercialization of metal, or pure boredom, bands were opting for a "slicker sound" and more digital "futuristic" production techniques. This produced some guilty pleasures such as Judas Priest's Turbo, but also some masterpieces such as Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time and Queensryche's Rage for Order. So where does this album fit in? Well, this is the first time Manowar had recorded digitally, and this is especially noticeable on the drums. The drums have that "80's hard rock pop theme song for an action movie" sound to them, and this is one element that brings the album down as a whole. Also, the songs have a slightly more commercial feel, recalling Kiss' Creatures of the Night album in their structure. Is this bad? Well, yes and no. The songs are all decent to great, even such (tongue in cheek?) fillers like the almost jingoist "Violence and Bloodshed" (try screaming it really fast) and "Blow your Speakers". The best songs, are obviously "Carry On", "Defender" and "Black wind, Fire, and Steel". This is another gem of a Manowar album, BUT, they need to remaster it to bring the bass a bit higher and make it a bit less "80's" sounding. Its obvious they were going for a more commercial sound, but in hindsight, the music outlasts the intentions they may have had, and it is a bona fide Manowar classic.

Manowar's fifth album is a very good one. Full of good metal tracks. "Fighting the World", "Blow Your Speakers", "Holy War" are all very basic Manowar style: hard metal riffs.
"Carry on" is a good touching song, well they really like their fans. They are like brother and sisters for them. "Violence And Bloodshed" is a little bit more violent (surprisingly). The vocalist sounds very very angry. "Black Wind, Fire And Steel" is very fast track. "Defender" is a good peaceful track. It has good background vocals, the old man singing, it gives more power to the music.
