this is what that particular manowar album does to you; at the 0:59 seconds mark, the "intro" ends with the distortion still lingering and you're wiped off the ground with one of the most awesome battery sounds you'll ever hear! accompanied razor sharp riffing, this is an audial moment that you'll permanently remember. Eric adam's voice slices through the instruments loud, clear and demonically furious! i think his performance on "triumph..." is his best (studio) vocal performance with manowar. back to the music: the magnificently chilling keyboard laden interlude ends and Achilles vows to avenge his comrade's death (the bells' sound along with the keyboards' makes the passage perfect for an epic soundtrack). the scenery evoked by the music in here is so vivid! i always look out for music that actually makes one SEE as well as hear, which is strongly the case in here. now some people might not like the lengthy drum solo coming by now. i personally skip through it. it's just here to reinforce the concept of the gods forging Achilles' armor. As the solo abruptly ends, all hell breaks loose again with torrential double bass drumming, bass, guitars and mr adams' incredibly versatile vocals, going in a second from low growling bass to formidable high pitched screams.
now "every one of us has heard the call!!!" and one of the best manowar songs ( metal warriors) kicks in with its sublime rythms. a true, timeless heavy metal hymn. and please dont start arguing that their lyrics are 'cheesy' and their attitude 'sucks' etcetc....if you want pensive music you're at the wrong window, PAL.
"Ride the dragon" has its awesome intro where the guitars faithfully imitate a dragon's voice (sometimes, i admit i DO take manowar seriously!

I'm not entirely sure I dig this album... one or two tracks were good, particularly 'Master of the wind'.
Metal warriors and Cherokee are good too, but having 2 new members in the band will ultimately change their sound, and some will probably argue its not REAL Manowar as it is now 1/2 a new group.
The driving bass and screeching vocals are still intact, but the drums and Guitaring have certainly changed.
Only a 1/4 of the guitar solos are actually solos! ....the rest are weird noises churned out by an uncreative (in a sense) axeman... no pun intended. It is also very hard to distinguish if they have either recruited the world's most accurate and precise drummer or just used a drum machine for the studio.
Other than that, its a much Darker album.... it dives a little too deep into the black pool than I care for.
Manowar were always about gloom and doom, but the earlier albums had a more uplifting feel to it... (its hard to explain) it was just the chemistry between all 4 original members that gave them the 'feel' that is noticeably absent in this album, perhaps Manowar belong to the 80's more so than the 90's.

Manowar is looked upon as godly(the fans are hardcore, more than just about any group you can think of)or thought of as heavy metal's biggest joke. This was my first taste of Manowar back in the day, and I was a little confused about it at first. I wasn't sure if they were trying to be funny or not. Well, since I got more into them over the years I know that these guys are dead serious about what they're doing. They're music and image is extremely cornball, I would hope even the most hardcore fan could admit to seeing a bit of humor in it all. But to me, that's all a part of what makes Manowar Manowar. These guys are the epitome of male ma-cheese-mo; I mean, they're the total embodiment of tough guy-Conan-badass-motorcycle riding-sexist-violent maleness taken to it's most extreme. It makes you want to strip down to your undies and run about the house wielding an invisible sword while munching on a giant turkey leg. And that's just the way they portray themselves. But, for all of this braggadocio these guys really do know how to play, they're not all about image. Eric Adams has one helluva voice though it sounds like he's straining too hard on the high notes. When you listen to his raspy high pitched scream, you can just envision him with a blue face, veins bulging, on the verge of his head exploding. That's a singer. So, say what you want about them, but there's only one Manowar. If you're curious, it wouldn't hurt to give this album a spin. I would think most heavy metal fans will get something out of Manowar, even if it is only a good laugh. I think you'd have to be a real stiff to wholeheartedly say that you "hate" them, but there are certainly many out there who do. However, there isn't one group in existence that isn't hated by someone somewhere. So, give these guys a shot; For better or worse, you'll always remember them.

I have to admit that the thing that got me interested in Manowar was the unique look of their logo, since besides music, my first love has always been multimedia and design. The logo looked so cool that I thought I'd do a little research into the music itself. Being a child of the '80s, I have a sort of "G.I. Joe/Rambo" macho thing going, always have. I heard clips of "Metal Warriors" and "Ride The Dragon," my first tastes of Manowar, and I was instantly hooked! Needless to say, I ended up buying the CD. This is true, POWERFUL metal, nothing more, nothing less. From the opening, almost operatic chords of "Achilles: Agony and Ectasy in 8 Parts" to the slow, emotional ballad that is "Master of the Wind," there is hardly ever a place where this CD lets you down. I have to say that the night after the events of 9/11/01, I cranked up the speakers in my car to "Burning," and I felt like everything was going to be all right, "THE STRONG WILL SURVIVE!" VERY good CD; it has made me a lifelong fan of the Kings of Metal!
