Manowar - The Lord of Steel

Posted on Wednesday, January 30, 2013

This album has gone beyond the mantra of “Other Bands Play, Manowar KILLS!” As each epic production is released by these guys it just appears to get better and better. Eric Adams has one of the best vocal styles I’ve ever laid my ears on, and Joey DeMaio is, well, a diabolical force to be reckoned with. I have to admit, I wasn’t instantly hooked on this album as much as I was with Gods of War. I guess because I knew Gods was going to be rich in Norse mythology and storytelling of prolific proportions, so I was biased from the start. But, The Lord of Steel does not disappoint. I especially appreciate the transition from “Born in a Grave” to “Righteous Glory.” Pure epic Metal and a throwback to a well-orchestrated ballad that includes a touch of the Norse mythos in the lyrics. My only wish is that they performed more in the states. Watching them via YouTube has saddened me to no end. All of the great shows they produce are overseas, but at least we have the video to appreciate the pure power that is Manowar. Anyway, back to Lord of Steel. Yes, this album is very well produced and holds to the high standard of anything that Manowar puts their hands on. Yes, it’s full of grand lyrical illusion. And finally, it’s Metal, through and through, it’s Metal…’nuff said.

True metal it is, or no metal at all. Wimps and poseurs leave the hall!

That just needed to be said.
