I have trouble deciding between this or Kings of Metal as my favorite of the second era of Manowar. I seperate the eras using their worst album, Fighting the World, as the middle album. This is their most diverse release yet, which was a title once held by Kings of Metal. Some tracks may offset metal purists but if you can have an open mind you may believe as I do that it's all just as perfect because it would almost seem Manowar can do no wrong(besides the song Blow Your Speakers).
The production on this is a bit better than most Manowar outings though not quite so bombastic as Triumph of Steel's. There are a few metal anthems, a few very heavy songs(in fact rivaling a good amount of their previous material) and a few "ballads" as some would call them. All in all it makes for a much more complete listening experience, like a story is being told to you using music instead of words and it truly is beautiful to hear. Now let's crack this down...
1. Call to Arms - What an excellent beginning, a song that is halfway in between being one of their heavier songs and one of their metal anthems.
2. The Fight for Freedom - This is great patriotic stuff, very uplifting and moving.
3. Nessun Dorma - One of my favorites off of this, a cover of an old famous opera, this is just absolutely beautiful in every way and proves once again that Eric Adams is the absolute greatest vocalist in all of heavy metal.
4. Valhalla - Not much to say about this, just a little 40 second interlude, interesting though.
5. Swords in the Wind - Definitly something you can sing along to, great song.

This CD is very uninteresting. I am a die-hard Manowar fan. I praise the Blood in Brazil DVD I picked up earlier this year as the best DVD concert I own. Hands down without a doubt it is a killer concert, but this CD just upsets me. After waiting 7 very long years for new material, since 1995's OK Louder than Hell (which their sound becomes very repoticious), this is a let down. The music and lyrics are soo predictable, you can actually know ahead of time what Eric Adams is going to sing even if you haven't heard the song before. There really are no big highlights on this album, except for Call to Arms and House of Death. That's it, and that aint enough for me. Instead pick up the classic remastered version of Battle Hymns, or their latest EP, Dawn of Battle, which contains Call to Arms and 2 very strong newly recorded songs. That is very good even though it is only 3 songs. Or better yet, pick up the Hell on Earth 2/Blood in Brazil DVD. The concert in Brazil is worth the price alone!!!

First of all, I'm into modern euro metal. Some of the bands I enjoy include Stratovarius, Spock's Beard, Arch Enemy, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, the Kovenant, Firewind, Summoning, and Tristania, to name a FEW. This is very atmoshperic - the keyboards are very apparent and extrememly well done. So far, what I'm saying is if you are into modern power metal like Falconer, Lost Horizon, or Firewind (Hammerfall to mention someone popular), you'll still love this.
Again, this is mostly very soft and slow, like Avantasia. If you're into modern euro metal, you just gotta be aware of Tobias's writting talent. On the other hand, "House of Death" is more brutal than a God Dethroned song.
The title track reminds me of a Thy Serpent song, "Only Dust Moves". This song is the song that tought me how beautiful death metal can be. Keyboards and symbols are used left and right in that song. In "Warriors of the World United", we see a slow paced song (Only Dust Moves is slow as molasses) that you cannot help but say is catchy. You will get so drawn into the beat of that song that all you'll want to do is hear more and more and more. The 3 songs after it are the 3 speed demons of the album. Also, track 3 is about 3:20 long and reminds me of the song in Italian (track 7) on Power of the Dragonflame. So if you're familiar with that, that is a prelude to what you'll hear on this CD. If you've heard the title track, most of the songs on the CD have the same beat, just not QUITE as good... still amazing, though.
Sometimes I still can't believe how much I love the majority of this CD, and the title track. Any fan of keyboard-oriented metal (notice the bands I mentioned earlier?) should have plenty of respect for this masterpiece.

Manowar have in the past received a lot of unfair criticism for stricking to their one style of music , their beliefs in music. I've in the past got a lot of stick for liking them I've purchased every release. Some I've loved (Into Glory Ride/Sign/Triumph), others I've liked. It therefore pains me to say this is the first CD by Manowar I've bought where I can say I don't like it and am unlikely having played it twice to ever play it through again!
Reasons Track 3 Nessun Dorma (need I say any more!) Track 4 Valhalla Track 6 An American Trilogy and other offenders. This is not traditional Manowar. Its certainly often not TRUE Metal as the band keep insisting they are unless you view anything played by Manowar as True Metal whatever style it really is! It's not what I want to listen to when I listen to Manowar.
I'm happy the band like it and are prepared to play ;; I love Manowar and I think this is a bold statement by them but I'm sorry I don't like it... my personal view.. if I buy a Manowar album I usually get what I expect this one I don't. So it's up to you. I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
