This compilation unfortunately suffers from the same problem as 'The Hell of Steel', a 'Best of' released in 1994. Without the rights to include tracks from all of Manowar's albums, both these compilations are inevitably missing many of Manowar's greatest tracks. Hence, serving as poor anthologies to this fantastic band. The artwork that is used on the cover of Anthology might have been appropriate around 1984 when the photo was originally taken, but today it looks rather silly - similarly, without the official Manowar logo, the cover of this cd looks unprofessional. It must be said that this CD is still an enjoyable listen - after all, we're talking about the kings of metal. It contains many of their best tracks, including 'Manowar', 'Metal Daze', 'Battle Hymn', 'Sign of the Hammer', 'Blood of the Kings', 'Metal Warriors' and others. Tracks like 'Fast Taker' and 'Violence and Bloodshed' however are not representative of the epic greatness of Manowar so really should not have appeared on this compilation. What is most perplexing about this CD is the track order which makes no real sense at all. It does not flow as an album, with breathtaking epics randomly placed amongst seemingly pointless numbers and the occasional signature metal anthem. As stated, aside from a few weaker tracks it is not the material itself that is bad on this CD. It is the frustrating omission of other excellent Manowar tracks - there is nothing from Into Glory Ride or Hail to England for example - and the thoughtless track order that make this CD one to avoid. The only Manowar compilation really worth buying unless you are a collector, and the only one properly endorsed by the band themselves is 'The Kingdom of Steel', though it is relatively hard to get hold of. So, I'd recommend all ten of their studio albums instead, in the order they were released. It's definitely worth it! ;)

What can u say about this album that doesn't involve the words Kings of Metal? Absolutely fantastic, probably the most played album I own. Eric Adams has without a doubt, the best voice I've ever heard in any genre of rock or metal. If u don't believe me, then listen to Blow Your Speakers and prepare your ears for his range. However, thats not to ignore the other band members, especially Joey DeMaio, the best/most inventive bassist in metal?
The only gripe i have with this album is that it doesn't include Kings of Metal or Master of the Wind. Ah well, can't have everything....

This is a fine collection which showcases Manowar`s understanding of how to make great heavy metal records. It starts with their traditional concert opener "Manowar" and the pace never relents. There are plenty of fine moments. "Sign of the hammer", "Metal warriors" and my personal favourite "All men play on ten" are so good they should carry a headbanging health warning. The grandiose "Battle hymn" still sends shivers up the spine while the stupidly fast ending of "The Demon`s whip" always raises a smile and a clenched fist. If you are curious about Manowar then this is a great place to start, you won`t be disappointed (although you might have a sore neck).
