4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Manowar Album... At Last!!! 5 Aug 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I have been listening to Manowar since "Fighting The World" (1987) and generally have enjoyed most of their music.

However, I have been simultaneously dissapointed by the fact that they seem to release 4 or 5 FANTASTIC songs per album interspersed by miscellaneous nonesense such as bass solo's, narrations and completely non-sensical classical interludes.
Having said that I highly recommend the Manowar back catalogue because 4 or 5 good Manowar songs is better than many albums I have bought by other artists.

What a pleasure it is to report that this is just 9 very good, solid metal songs (plus the slightly dodgy "Manowarriors") without the b****cks of previous albums.

In my honest opinion, Manowar would be outselling Metallica if they had only retained a grasp of reality over the last 25 years..... They really are musically superb!...

This is a fantastic album and I urge you to buy it. I may sound critical but it is only because I know how good Manowar are and that they may have wasted some oportunities over the course of their career.

Very heavy, very catchy metal. Joey Demaio is definately one of the greatest Bass guitarists ever and this album sees him taking as much af a lead in the music as the guitarist Karl Logan.

Overall, I'm very impressed by this album the only thing letting it down slightly is the lyrically cringeworthy "Manowarriors" (I'm sure it's a great sing-a-long at a concert but it just sounds silly on this otherwise great album.)

I hope you will enjoy this album as much as I have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album - but beware of false offers 10 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Much has been said about this new Manowar album and a lot of comparisons have been made. I am constantly surprised how people always expect something to be 'same as'. I admire and congratulate every artist who does not give in to the temptation to replicate their biggest success over and over again, just because it is the save bet.
There is 'fast food art' that you may like instantly but get bored after the first one or two times, and there is art that grows on you, that makes you think, re-watch, re-listen, re-read, and discover something new and great every time.

Equally surprising how intolerant people can be, even fans of a music genre that has always defined itself as the genre for the 'outcasts', for those that don't fit in. One would expect a bit more tolerance from those people.
Not everybody will like this album. Fine. No reason to bash it though, or to insult the band, or the fans who love the band and the album.

My recommendation would be: Be open minded, listen to the album a couple of times, and then decide whether you like it or not. I love it, and I know many others who love it too.

I like the fact that once again Manowar surprise. Each song has something else, and like I said, the more you listen to it the more facets you discover.
My favorites: Born in a grave, Touch the sky, Lord Of Steel, Black List.

At the time of this post (July 2012) the one thing that should be pointed out is that Manowar announced that the CD will be released into retail in September, and that until then the only way to get the physical CD of The Lord Of Steel will be as part of the Metal Hammer Steel Edition.
There are some sources that offer the CD (or the MH Edition maybe?) at outrageous prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Manowar album for a good few years. 26 Nov 2012
By Phil S
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are many things to like about this new Manowar record - the songs are powerful, direct and hard hitting. It's all so well written and performed and the production is clear and beefy. It's not so overblown as the last record (Gods of War) and it's far better than the one before (Warriors of the World). Certainly their strongest album for years. I won't pick out the best songs as it's best to listen to the album as a whole - you won't get bored as each song is fantastic.

Buy it and listen to metal the way it should be played - all hail Manowar!

Heard some very bad things about this album so took a deep breath before plunging in.

I am a huge fan of the Gods Of War type Manowar album , in fact it's still amongst my all time Fav album from start to finish so when I found they were going back to there roots so to speak, approached with caution.

I needn't have worried , this album is simply stunning , Joey's Bass really is to the fore here and has to be listened reasonably loud it's just one of those type of albums , admittedly it took a few repeated listens but I got there in the end , The Lord Of Steel which opens the album is a terrific opener and sure to be a concert Fav , the much maligned ManoWarriors isn't that bad musically , ok the lyrics are pure cheese but it's Manowar for Christ sakes we accept the odd Manowarrior type song.

The meat of the album comes with the next four tracks - Born In A Grave is simply superb , the slower Righteous Glory is a classic and then the most toe tapping song Manowar have ever done - Touch The Sky , it's huge and the only disappointment is the length at under 4 mins , Blacklist follows which could have come directly off Judas Priests Painkiller album it's that good , Expendables come next which is good but does feel slightly Manowar by numbers which is to say it's still 99% better than most of the dross out there , El Gringo is next up and WOW it really is that good , very very catchy and you can tell it's a soundtrack song , would look good on most bands CV and another concert fav.
