preview-review by Ayhan "Neotyrant" Sahin
Well I must admit that when I was a bit younger I was a deadly Manowar fan, but after seeing Joey De Maio in bath; rubbing a naked girl on the video, I accepted that the stupidness of this all leather and metal shit is enough for me. Got it?
From a long vacation, Manowar, the so called kings of metal!, returns with their ninth studio album entitled ‘Warriors of the World’. (What can it be?) A manowar album is an easy one to review because however speak of it ill the Manowar fans ignore you and they can be found on the way to the cd-market. So this means I can freely throw mud.
Well, after gaining time with two live album everbody was expecting a great album from them. At least better than the ‘Louder than Hell’… Have a look to our great album??!!
Our ‘Swords in the Wind’ ballad comes following him with an intro called ‘Valhalla’. Nothing to say. It’s a manowar ballad and deserves some attention.
‘Oh no is that a Joke’ was the first thing I said when I first heared the ‘An American Trilogy’. It’s not metal, it’s not a ballad either. What is that? As some of you guessed correctly, it’s an Elvis cover. Yeah that american guy with the fucking funny hair. If you like Elvis Presly it will be great to hear a song from him with Eric Edams’voice. But no I don’t like him. I didn’t like this song either. It’s ‘a must skipped’ song for me.. And also I can’t stand listening the ‘halleeeejuaaaaahaaaa’ part at the end of it.. Oghhhkkkk. I need to go bathroom.
‘The March’ an orchestral ballad like intro (well it’s an intro not a song for me) with female choirs etc… It reminded me a lot to ‘Rhapsody’ intros. Same damn church organ… Nothing new.
‘Warriors of the World United’… Interesting name isn’t it??!!. When you first hear it you catch the quick glimpse of legendic ‘spirit horse of the cherokee’ from ‘triumph of steel’. Although it has a good chorus, it’s nearly 6 minutes and it hasn’t more than ‘we are warriors… warriors of the world’. Ok we got it. You are the warriors of the world. Huh…
Aha.. this is a good heavy metal song with all it’s solos etc. I’m talking about the ‘Hand of Doom’. Definetely one of the best songs of the album. It’s full of energy and it’s a really manowar song. Good work on solos btw. To give you an opinion the last 3 songs, the following ‘House of Death’ and ‘Fight until we die’ are the ‘Louder than Hell’ songs of the album. They are fast and heavy. I have a feeling that, they are some older stuff that DeMaio has written. Or songs that written to express ‘we are not changed, we are still manowar idea’. Whatever the reason is they are good enough, for manowar standards .
As a result this album fills the lack of the guitar solos on ‘Louder than Hell’ with it’s some songs but can’t be a match for the other manowar discs. Honestly I was expecting a better album from them with all the time they got. I wasn’t expecting great, original lyrics or superb riffs of course, all I needed was a simple ‘Manowar style’ album. And this is not.
If you haven’t heard anything from our muscular friends before, try ‘Kings of Metal’ not this one. And if you are Manowar fan, I know you are on the way to buy it. Huh…
