After reading this comment's title you'll probably be thinking: "but I do want to listen to Manowar as loud as possible!". Sure, we all do. The expression "loudness war", however, refers to a trend in the music industry to master CD's with the volume too loud, often beyond the limits allowed by the technical specifications of the CD format. This process will almost always cause unwanted distortion and even "clipping" on various parts of the audio. In other words, parts of the audio are often irreparably damaged in the mastering process because they don't "fit" within the CD format's dynamic range limits.

I did a full audio analysis of this remastered "silver edition" of the album, and on the first track alone, "Blood Of My Enemies", there are at least 254 clipped (that is, cut off, LOST) samples on the left channel and 312 on the right channel. Please note that this is something completely different to listening to a correctly mastered CD as loud as you want - the sound will be intact in that case, and the loudness limit will be defined only by your audio equipment and your taste. On the other hand, an album that has been victimized by the "loudness war" will be missing parts of the sound even when played at a low volume.

It's a real shame that a band that's known for their perfeccionism when it comes to their music, and specially Joey DeMayo, allowed this absolutely classic album to be released this way. If you don't have "Hail To England" on CD, make sure you get the original release, which was mastered correctly.

For more information on the "loudness war", just Google the expression between quotes.

I know this CD by heart from the first accords of "Blood of my Enemies" till the laughter at "Bridge of Death". It is so classical, so powerful and brimming with the ancient lust for unseen lands, for truth and honesty, for pride and glory. I have many many CDs in my collection, including a wide range of styles (From Heavy Metal to Classic to Electronic Arts), but this one here is an absolute key to everything, one of the foundations Heavy Metal lies on. I wouldn't even compare it to any other bands of that age, because it's so supreme. But Metallica's "Ride the Lightning" for Heavy Metal or "In the Nightside Eclipse" by Emperor for Black Metal have had a similar impact and importance. I'd score this 10 stars if I could!

True, like "Into Glory Ride" and "Sign of the Hammer", the origional releases suffered from less-than-perfect production. Not that the sound was terrible, just muddy. The remasters sound a thousand times better. Now, when I first heard this album and it's opening tracks 'Blood of my Ememies' and 'Each Dawn I Die', I was sure that it was recorded at the same time as the previous one. Or at least fast on the heels of it. But, alas, I was wrong. Although sounding similar, it is a bit of a faster paced album than "Glory" as is clearly evidenced by 'Kill With Power'. 'Hail to England' is the first song to pay tribute to their fans overseas after being mostly ignored in America. 'Army of Immortals' is another, yet more direct, ode to the loyal fans of Manowar who are truly like no other. The closing two tracks always blow me away. 'Black Arrows' continues the tradition started on "Battle Hymn" of a Joey DeMaio bass assault, proving once again why he should get far more recognition as a musician than he gets. This Piccolo Bass solo shows that a great bass player is a great guitarist first, then a bass player. This leads directly into 'Bridge of Death' that opens with an 8 string bass solo unlike anything I've ever heard before of since. An almost 9 minute opus about dealing with satan, there is not much I can say about it other that I must be listened to completely to know what it's really about.

Once again, Manowar made a record with lush musical abilty, story telling lyrics, and quite simply heavy metal in it's pure form.

By far my favorite Manowar album, Hail To England is pure driving tunes all the way. Turn it up, roll down the windows and sing along madly with this masterpeace. Every track on this album smokes like a full house of college kids in a coffee shop. The boys back up their "death to false metal" exclamations with true powerful metal. "Blood Of My Enemies" and "Each Dawn I Die" are incredible jump around like a madman tunes. "Kill With Power" and "Army Of Immortals" roll along brilliantly crushing anything weaker under it's wheels. Bludgeoning riffs, energetic, piercing vocals, "Hail To England" is a true adrenaline rush for metal junkies everywhere. So, what are you waiting for?

As I am not old enough to know, I can't say anything about the impact of this record in its time. But I can point out that it still rules. Everything about this is mindblowing. Eric Adams puts on one of his most inspired vocal performances, and that piccolo bass gives the album a great raw (or perhaps barbaric) sound. Nearly every song seems to have an original idea. Manowar never really topped this album, though they sometimes came close. Unfortunately, their next two albums don't have whole lot to recommend themselves.
