5.0 out of 5 stars This is Music! 13 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
It takes some time of listening when compared to Louder than Hell for example. But the more I listen to it, the more I love it. Including orchestration, symphonies and narrations, the album melds classical music with Manowar's signature sound, creating one hell of a beautiful atmosphere. This is Music! Eric's voice is, dare i say, clearer and more emotional than ever before (take Blood Brothers for instance).

Songs like King of Kings, Sleipnir, Loki and Sons of Odin... especially Sons of Odin (in my case) will get you punching the air! Other songs are gonna get a tear to you eye, others will give you goosebumps. This is an emotional album, this is not noise-pollution like most of the modern junk we get nowadays, believe me THIS IS MUSIC. Just shut your eyes, blast those speakers full on and see for yourself. As per usual, this is an album to be played at high volume, no posers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hail to Manwar!! 5 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Essential Manowar. A fantastic return to the form of yore. The packaging is unique and hints at whats to follow on disc. Manowar's lyrics, based on Norse mythology, are the icing on the musical cake. True Heavy Metal made even better by crisp, bright production and Manowar's obvious passion for the genre. Muscianship... flawless as usual. ESSENTIAL. Play very loud!! Hail the Kings of Metal. Await the arrival of the longships!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The second coming 10 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
After so many years of grief from the rock press, suddenly they have realised that Grunge was a flash in the pan, Nu-metal was as manufactured as the spice girls, and now Maiden and Priest are cool again. 'Battle metal' is having a resurgence also- 3 inches of blood, Dragon Force, Fintroll and others are all enjoying deserving success in this new wave of interest. But they are not 'the daddies'. They are not the best. They are not Manowar. Here come the old guard, the band that stuck to their artistic beliefs through the swirls and eddies of musical trends, maintained their vision when all around scoffed and scorned, and have returned to a public more receptive than any time in the last 20 years with an absolute belter of an album. The musicianship is guaranteed on manowar releases- incredible as always,and Adams voice is not cowed or weakened one jot by a long career of use and abuse. What makes this album so exciting is the energy and renewed purpose in the music. As with all Manowar albums, it is best listened to as a whole, rather than looking for standout tracks, and as a whole is easily up their with 'Hail to England' and 'Kings of Metal', and vastly superior to anything from 'Triumph of Steel' onwards.

The kings are back, wimps and posers leave the hall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
This album is heavy as Thunder! Anyone who gives this 3* or less will be left behind in battle. Manowars music is so powerful and as I sit here doing homework, I can only imagine somewhere else in the world someone is also listening to this album and feeling as I do and that is to carry on and never give up and to be brothers of metal even if we are from different countries. Hail!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year? 12 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a die hard Manowar fan, in fact, this was the first release of theirs I'd bought since 'The Triumph of Steel'. I was intrigued by tales of orchestras, narration and a concept. I'm starting to feel a bit daft for having not bought any Manowar for such a long time as this album is outstanding. It's best played in one sitting because the album flows beautifully. I saw one reviewer (for a different edition) bemoaning the lack of metal on this album, but really, the album is crammed full of powerful music and the kind of steamroller power metal that you expect from Manowar. There is definitely no compromise on the metal front. However, the real strength is in the continuity between the classical/orchestrated sections and the out-and-out metal songs: the transition from 'The ascension' to 'King of kings' has to be one of the finest moments of metal ever committed to CD. It's easy to laugh at Manowar and to write them off as a joke, but they have created some of the defining moments in rock music over the past 25 years or so. This is their crowning glory and against all of my expectations may well be my album of the year. (PS Personally I didn't think the DVD with this special edition was particularly great unless you want to invest in a `custom built Manowar guitar, built to the highest specifications, for you, the fans ... etc.', a longer documentary on the making of the album would have been better).
