5.0 out of 5 stars Battle Metal's finest hour, 3 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Kings of Metal (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Manowar since the release of Into Glory Ride in 1983. They followed this with what some consider to be there best, Hail To England and then Sign Of The Hammer. I have reservations about both of those CD's and feel that the band were filling the time with some poor songs having written some classics. Fighting The World was a return to form but all have been surpassed by Kings Of Metal. It truly is incredible, and I'll even excuse them the rather lame spoken word Warriors Prayer which only fails because of the two characters they had perform the piece - Orson Welles it isn't. In Heart Of Steel and Kingdom Come they have two of the finest songs in my entire 2000 CD collection. If you're new to Manowar, you've picked up on the latest wave of Battle Metal bands then you'd do well to start here. Releases have been few and far between in the last 10 years and one suspects the creativity that lies within them has gone. Doesn't hide the fact that at least 4 of their CD's are true bona fide HM classics. Enjoy.
