Track by track analysis? Why thank you.
1 - Wheels Of Fire:
Simply one of the best introduction tracks ever made. Starts off with a sample of a vehicle roaring into action then it's straight into one of the fastest songs you'll ever hear. Hold onto your seat.
2 - Kings Of Metal:
Follows straight from the intro track with a monsterous groove to it. The music and the lyrics are spot on (if a bit self-indulgent) but generally high above the norm.
3 - Heart Of Steel
The first of the ballads on this album. This song in undescribable in the uplifting feeling it bestoys apon the listener. Like their other ballads such as Master Of The Wind and Courage, this song is truely awesome.
4 - Sting Of The Bumblebee
One of Joey DeMaio's well known bass solos. Lightning fast and it sets up the next track quite well.
5- The Crown And The Ring (Lament Of The Kings)
Not one of the normal Manowar tracks. Indeed, no guitar, bass or drums in sight. Just an orchestra, Eric Adams, an all-male choir and St. Paul's Cathederal. What do you get from this frankly scary mix? A great song. Uplifting like most Manowar tracks, also it'll have you chanting along with the choir in no time.
06 - Kingdom Come
My personal favourite on the album. Totally and utterly fantastic. It showcases Eric Adams superb vocals to the finest. At the tail end of the song, where Mr. Adams is doing those "howls" the power metal "undescribable feeling" just takes over. It's such a grand song, fills you with a sense of pride and spirit that no-one can diminish.
07 - Pleasure Slave
Originally included as a bonus track. Quite possibly the most sexist material written since the Bible.
I'd have given this zero stars if I could have.
Perhaps it's that I'm too wimpish to appreciate it all.
What a crock.
