Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Just when you thought heavy metal had either died or mutated into dissonant alternative music, along comes Manowar to prove once again that straight-ahead guitar crunch, powerhouse drumming, and histrionic vocal yowls can be far more potent than the latest Nirvana clone band--and far more amusing. On Louder Than Hell, Manowar guard the heavy metal torch with unintentionally hilarious lines like, "The Gods made heavy metal and they saw that it was good/They said to play it louder than hell, we promised that we would." This never-say-die spirit, along with muscular, audacious riffs, razor-sharp hooks, and strong, simple songwriting keeps Manowar's flame burning, even when they resort to violin-laden power ballads like "Courage." --Jon Wiederhorn

Manowar is a band that has been influenced by Black Sabbath and other heavy metal artists. Manowar's Louder than hell is a metal masterpiece and is one of the few albums that prove that heavy metal is alive and well. Manowar is one of the best bands of all-time and it's a shame that their albums are often overlooked. This is one of the best metal albums from the 90s.

Manowar has always been a somewhat unusual heavy metal band, both for their constantly evolving, but always recognizable, musical style, and for the thematic content of their songs. Most of them, anyway: Manowar's best albums, like KINGS OF METAL, have felt like the sort of thing Vikings would listen to, were they still actively pillaging in the 20th century. Blood, valor and the beauty of single combat have often been strong components in Manowar's songs. LOUDER THAN HELL follows the same pattern to some degree, but with significant deviations that demonstrate that the band might be ready to move beyond odes to sword and axe.
The album opens with the hard-driving, defiant "Return of the Warlord." Like rappers who build self-aggrandizing rhymes into their lyrics, Manowar touts their credibility as old-school heavy metal devotees. The song has a classic vibe to it, complete with irresistible guitar licks and growling vocals. It's an excellent start to an almost-perfect CD, followed in quick succession by the howling, impassioned "Brothers of Metal, Pt.1" and "The Gods Made Heavy Metal." These three songs form a sort of mini-arc, as if to say: "We play heavy metal, we love it and you love it, so let's get it on!"
Manowar downshifts for "Courage," a solid power ballad that never descends, as many such songs do, into a sticky mess of syrupy nonsense. On an album with so many great, speaker-blowing rockers, it's surprising to find that one of the softer songs is actually the best track of the entire set. It's also remarkable that, thus far on LOUDER THAN HELL, Manowar hasn't pushed many of their usual, sword-swinging buttons.

Louder than Hell is really a proper title for this release. This is the loudest, hardest and most unrelenting release from these long-time metal gods. Manowar goes for the simple, brutally powerful beauty of power chords and lots of double kick drum thunder here, and to good effect. If you can sit still and not feel like kicking some ... with this disk on, perhaps they should take you out back and bury you. If there was ever a disk to get hyped up for weight lifting, this would be the one. Manowar shows us nothing new, other than a new shredder at the guitar post (the capable Karl Logan). Courage, the ballad/heroic ode of this disk, might seem a bit odd to some of you who've not been indoctrinated into the ways of Manowar, but you'll end up humming it in the car one day, mark my words. Not as powerful as "Triumph of Steel" (lacks the mighty Rhino's drumming), as classically Manowar as "Kings of Metal", or as wonderfully "True Metal" as "Hail to England", but a must-have for both fans and newcomers to the Manowar world.

If this album would have only had one song on it and that song would have been the last one (The Power) it would still rate as my second favorite Manowar album (nothing on Earth beats Kings of Metal)but with other incredible songs like Courage, Outlaw and King, it is oh so close to being as good. For those that get the Manowar concept I can't think of anything more awesome than the intensity of The Power. The song just oozes that very feeling with every chord, every beat, and every word Eric Adams roars into the microphone. I've had "new-bie" metalheads telling me Manowar was old and not heavy enough. Put this song on (or Outlaw for that matter) crank it to the max and that'll shut em up fast. Simply awe striking.
But that's just one song, the rest of the album is outstanding too !! In fact I can't really find anything I don't love on this album, even the two instrumantals are cool, although the second one is admittedly a little weaker than the first. Buy this album !! If you like Manowar, buy this album !! If you like Heavy Metal, buy this album !! If you have any sense whatsoever, buy this masterpiece now !!!
HAIL MANOWAR !!!!!!

The razor-sharp axework of the excellent guitarist Karl Logad and the sincerity of Manowar's themes don't save this CD. Eric Adams vocals and Joey DeMaio boring bass lines actually ruin this album, which should never be compared to the high flies of "Kings Of Metal" and "Fighting The World". If you want to explore Manowar, take the aforementioned albums instead of this one. What happened to Adams' voice? It sounds broken, finished... It's a shame listening him, as you won't identify this voice with the one that sang "Stand And Fight!". Drumming is also second-class rated -Well, I admit that Manowar had never had a extra-class drummer. The production is flat, and the sound is outdated and unexciting. I can't stand so much monotony! Why so many 5 stars? Go for something better and do yourself a favor: overall, this is a poor album, and I encourage you to avoid purchasing it. Two stars is by far a gift to this release!
