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.
