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!
