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

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.Read more ›
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 !!!!!!

If you are looking to spend your hard earned money on a great Rock CD "Louder than Hell" isn't it. Banal lyrics, awful amaturish musicianship, and tacky packaging. Read morePublished on June 7 2003 by Thor
