LOUDER THAN HELL for me.

 

Think anyone will vote for either of the last two studio albums (WARRIORS OF THE FILLER and GODS OF SNORE)... nah, me neither. :lol:

I'm with Keef on this one "Louder than Hell" is their best album by far and is Metal perfection IMO.

 

Other good ones are "Into Glory Ride", "Battle Hymns", "Kings of Metal", "Hail to England" and "Sign of the Hammer".

The mighty 'Battle Hymns' for me.

 

Please don't shoot me, but I quite like 'Warriors Of The World' (Title track especially) and some of 'The Gods Of War' :anon:

 

:gone:

I liked most of "Warriors of the World" except for "American Trilogy"(which was sung very well but shouldn't be on a Manowar album) and there might be another tune on there that was pointless but I'm drawing a blank right now.

The "American Trilogy" was goofy. The Manowar dudes said it was their salute to Elvis (apparently Elvis used to perform that medley live), something about "The Kings of Metal showing respect to the King of Rock N Roll." I always wondered what Elvis would've thought if he heard that version.

 

"Hmmm, Priscilla, that was mighty nice'a them Manowar boys to cover mah song, they sure are nice young fellers, even though they really oughta cut their hair, uh-huh, uh-huh. Now fetch me a fried banana sandwich, woman!"

 

The other tune that seemed like a total filler on that album was "Nessum Dorma," the opera track. WTF was that?? I guess it should've been a warning of things to come.

Yeah that Opera track was a little strange and out of place, that was the song I was trying to remember.

Besides those two the cd was really good.

I only have one of theirs I think it's Triumph Of Steel, I couldn't even listen to the whole thing this band is NOT my cup of tea.

 

Ooh yea, that one's pretty lame. By the time you get through that 28 minute long, eight part (!!) epic about the life and death of Achilles, you feel like you've had a root canal.

Please throw me a bone and tell me the good ones, I really want to give these guys a another shot.

LOUDER THAN HELL and KINGS OF METAL would be my personal faves, but I got on the bandwagon late in the game with these guys. I'm really not terribly familiar with their first two or three albums but those are the ones most people tend to cite as their all time best.

Those two that Keef recommended and "Sign of the Hammer", "Hail to England" with the awesome Satanic 'Bridge of Death', and ''Into Glory Ride'', the debut ''Battle Hymns'', and ''Fighting the World'' is solid too. Their live albums "Hell on Stage" and "Hell on Wheels" are both very good live albums and are a good place to start since some of the old songs sound better live then they did on some of the old albums.

That is the problem with the earlier discs, the production mainly sucks for the most part - oh to hear some of those tunes recorded in the 21st century.

Backed!!! They should re-record about 15 old classics from the first 4 albums with the newer lineup.

Yea, and that's one of the only albums I don't have on CD yet.. Well that and Gods of War....

 

Sure the 28 minute epic opening track IS a bit tedious, sure.. But Metal Warriors is fucking GOOD!!!! :headbanger:

 

YOu can't go wrong with their debut album Battle Hymns.. Definitely something Every Metal fan should own..... :beerbang:

Hail to England.....then Battle Hymn.

 

Unfortunately the rallying cry (Hail to England) was shouted by some good willing U.S. chaps with sepia visions of a country that is now fucked by political correctness, liberal and socialist dogma dragging what values and pride we had through their misguided and outdated socialist ideals that the political class carry with them from their days as university students. The ideals they foister on all but themselves as they are content to live off the gravy train that is the English taxpayer (but shit they lived off the tax payer in University so why change???). Sending their children to private schools whilst pushing for comprehensive education for everyone else, telling us to tighten our belts in a time of recession whilst feathering their own nests with taxpayers money and paying for second homes with the same. Insisting crime is down when no-one...even the home secretary...feels safe on the street (unless the stupid bitch has minders looking after her). A Government insisting it needs a database that shows every phone call, eMail, text, search engine search that EVERY individual does in the UK in a bid to combat terrorism!!! Tthe best way to combat terrorism is ship the most likely suspects out (and we all know who they are!)!!!! End of the threat of terrorism on the mainland instantly...any more shit nuke their motherlands...let them drink their fuckin oil.

 

This country has GREAT things abound, just not the political classes!!!

Politicians are a cancer...cut them out....we need a new Oliver Cromwell!!!!!!!!

And if any government spies are monitoring this...FUCK YOU!!!!

The revolution starts next time Manowar tour :lol:

 

King Arthur ...if you really are asleep with your knights ready to come to aid us in Englands darkest hour....now is the time :headbanger::headbanger::headbanger:

 

P.S. Sorry just a bit pissed off at the moment.

Seriously, rant away, that was a very impressive bit of enraged spittle emission if you ask me!
