5.0 out of 5 stars Manowar solves the riddles and teaches us Wisdom 14 Nov 2006
By k wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hark! Open your ears, and listen. Is that the sound of distant thunder? No. That which approaches is more powerful than any storm. It is the coming of a great engine of war you hear, led by four kings: kings so mighty that their very steeds are made of steel. They are riding back out of Glory, whence they rode long ago.

Look! Open your eyes, and see. Lose the scales that obstruct your vision and look upon the world as for the first time, like the newborn babe.

Cast your gaze to the east. A new dawn is rising. And Manowar is the sun.

For is it not written in the Book of the Warriors, chapter 8, verses 18 and 20 : "We said we would return, and here we are again... we are the hammer of the gods." Again the words of the prophet have been fulfilled. Amen.

For indeed, they have returned. And this time, they have brought an army with them, and it is a new thing, and a thing by their enemies not expected: an orchestral and narrative sound integrated with the metal. No longer do the hammers of the gods make war upon the unbelievers alone (though never have those hammers been found insufficient, as surely unbelievers everywhere have learned). Now they are joined by the swords of the gods. And may the gods have mercy upon us all.

Yes, this is new, and yet, not new: for was it not Manowar who first wore this Crown and this Ring, and spoke this Warrior's Prayer, so long ago? Is it not known to all that every symphonic, epic, fantasy, viking and power metal band ever to exist owes its very life's blood to Manowar, for is not Manowar the very Fountain from which all these good things flow?

Here, then, are paradoxes to vex the philosophers: since Manowar metal is, by definition, perfect, how can it possibly be improved upon? Manowar, being archetypal, is eternal, and therefore changeless. And yet, it is written (in the Book of Hell, chapter 1, verse 26): "We are the undefeated, we're not living in the past."

And so, if Manowar starts to sound more like a modern symphonic fantasy metal band, can it truly be said that Manowar has changed? For how could Manowar, being Manowar, be influenced by anything other than Manowar?

Are we not the Immortals (so called in the Book of England, Chapter 5)? Is it not our wont to ask these things? For there are riddles here.

Can an omnipotent god make a rock so heavy that even an omnipotent god cannot move it? If two great weapons of that god, one a great hammer made of the heaviest metal, one a great silver sword made of Wagnerian orchestral music, are struck together, shall both of them be rent asunder - and shall the force of their rending liberate the universe? (And was it not prophesied in the Book of Triumph, chapter 6, verse 26: "they will know the power of my sword"?) Can the irresistible force that is Manowar be stopped by the immovable object called...Manowar? And lastly, this, though it may seem like sacrilege: is there something, somewhere, that could possibly transcend the power of even Manowar?

Now, at last, we have learned. With the Sons of Odin EP, Manowar has solved the riddle. The answer: Manowar. Manowar, and Manowar alone, can make music so powerful that it is more powerful than Manowar. Only through Manowar can a way be found to sound more like Manowar than even Manowar. And so now we know. Manowar has taught us Wisdom.

Released by almost any other band, this five-track EP would be the crown jewel of its career. The quality of either the singing or the songwriting alone would assure that, let alone the twain together on one disc. But for Manowar, this is only another bucketful of glory in the ocean that is their greatness.

For is it not written in the Book of Kings, Chapter 2, verse 23: "We are the kings of metal". And again, chapter 4, verse 16: "High and mighty, alone we are kings." Kings, yes, but more than this. For surely these be messengers from the very Gods of Metal, come from some high hall to bestow their blessings upon the valiant of our lesser sphere. (See The Book of the Hammer, chapter 5, verses 7-8; and The Book of Hell, chapter 3, verses 9-12).

What, then, shall the full-length album bring? Can this EP possibly be surpassed by even Manowar? If each Manowar song is infinitely great, would an album of ten infinitely great songs therefore be twice greater than an EP of only five? Would it be correct to say that ten infinities are larger than five? Is infinity always an absolute, or can it be relative?

These things are not for us to know. All shall be revealed in its own season. Time changes all things; Manowar alone is eternal. In the meanwhile:

Look to the east. A new dawn is rising. And Manowar is the sun.

Hail thou, and kill.

Amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manowar sons of odin 14 Nov 2006
By warhead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a teaser of whats to come on next album[already overdue],again manowar is manowar sounding like no one else but themselves,they are indulging in a lot more of what they pioneered,spoken narratives ,symphonies and male choires,making their epic sound even more epic then their into glory ride[my favorite all time cd],lots of mood and rich textures,not as heavy or raw as into glory ride,but definately more epic,without a doubt the shining star is Eric Adams[lungs of steel]i cannot fault anything he does on this e.p. brilliant,the music definately takes you away,as does a lot of their music,these songs are going to be rerecorded for upcoming cd,the ones we have now are the immortal version,hope they dont changeup to much on these songs in upcoming cd,also included is a well done live version of king of kings with spoken narrative from joey,dvd has cool stuff from fan convention[earthshaker festival]with all band members,and preview of upcoming earthshaker dvd,all in all a good package,manowar preaches to the choire-thats why we keep coming back.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Taste Of METAL 25 Nov 2006
By Stanley Runk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
LEATHER!! Everyone's favorite metal kings are here to give us a taste of what's to come on the new album. Trying to keep it as plain as I can, it's still in that Warriors Of The World style. Some folks hated that album, but as we know, all the hardcore fans will buy the new cd without question. Coz after all, Manowar are known for their devoted following. This e.p. gives us some cool, rockin' tunes we'd expect from Manowar with lyrics directly from the Manowar lyric generator, so we brothers everywhere can raise our hands into the air. METAL!! The only tracks that kinda bother me are the classical-ish ones. After hanging out with Rhapsody, Manowar have now adapted the whole classical music influence(another genre of music Manowar didn't invent, but will probably now claim to be the best at). They don't integrate it with their sound as much as Rhapsody, but from this e.p., I get the feeling it'll be a bigger part of this album than the last. It's just my personal taste, but I don't care much for this approach. Whether Manowar are actually using a real orchestra or not, it sounds kinda fake anyway. Sorta like Danzig's Black Aria or something. Okay, not THAT phony. Manowar also continue their obsession for dvds by including one in this package. It shows us the first Manowar fan convention and comes across like a mini Hell On Earth dvd. It's Manowar being Manowar, but it mostly shows the fans. SPIKES!! It is cool to see all the past members of the band, but ultimately it makes me wish I'm never stuck in a room full of hardcore Manowar fans for days. I guess I'd better leave the hallllll. Though it sounds like I'm making fun of the band(Which I kind of am, but I still love em), I'm looking forward to the new cd and I do feel it will be a very good album based on this e.p. AND CHAAAAIIIIIINS!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kings of Metal rock!!! 10 Jan 2007
By T. Murin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent sample of Manowar music. The Kings of metal deliver another fine album, but not a full album. This is the first time I've heard these songs. If you like Manowar music. Don't miss this! The DVD in this set is very good since I don't know when they will make it back to America for a live show!
