5.0 out of 5 stars The Blood of My Enemies June 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
My allies and I will only listen to true metal when preparing for battle. Although my foes are myriad, they cannot crush my spirit. And this album has substantially contributed to that spirit. I've got the biggest amps, and man they blast. I cannot understand why a person would by an album by any other band. Other bands play, Manowar kills.

4.0 out of 5 stars A joy-ride all the way through! April 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
While rumaging through the CD's at my local Used CD store, my eyes fell upon a used copy of Kings Of Metal. I quickly picked it up. The album just blew me awy. Sure Manowar my be a little oon the cheesy side with their ourtagous costumes and unique lyrics, but their music is fun and fast. It was a nice change from listening to all the nu-metal withieir their moaning aobut how bad their life is and how society [messed] them up. Manowar is totally different. Manowar seems to be happy their metal artisits and they love to show it with their music. Belive it or not,, Manowar can be seen as an uplifting Metal group. KINGS OF METAL is so much fun. The album can make you feel aggressive and as well as make you laugh. It's a joy ride all the way through. The instrumental Sting of the Bumblebee was a real treat. Soon after my experience with Kings of Metal. I went of and bought Warriors of the World and was equally blown away. So if your sick of all the nu-metal groups complaing about their so called "bad" lives, give Manowar a try, they just may surprise you! MANOWAR, THE KINGS OF METAL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courageous Music October 29, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I'd buy this CD for one song and feel I'd got my money's worth. The song: Heart of Steel. Last summer I was in Bosnia for 4 months. I listened to that song daily on my way there, while there, and on my way home. The song says "Build a fire a thousand miles away, to light my long way home." Now,I was 3 times that far away, and this song helped bring me home. I also highly recommend "Wheels of FIre", "Kings of Metal", and "Sting of the Bumblebee". Manowar isn't for everyone, but it is for adventurers and warriors. Take the risk. Stand and Fight.

5.0 out of 5 stars stand down, little man May 5, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No, no, no, little man. This one is not for you. You had best leave right now.
I know you, little man. You're little, and in your smallness you know only fear. When something BIG comes along, something epic, something heroic, something so monumental it can scarcely be believed, it doesn't even register on your little brain, little man. You're like an ant crawling on a side of a great pyramid. It's beyond your comprehension. Your little ears might hear the sounds of this album, little man, but they don't hear the music. You have never known the feeling of utter fearlessness, of living with a wide open heart, that it takes to hear the music. So this kind of power, majesty, and glory are beyond you. What you'll do is what all little men do when they encounter these things. You'll call it "cheesy" or "over the top" and cover up your fear and your lack of understanding with laughter. That will make you feel better, little man, but you're not fooling me. You're whistling past the graveyard. More than anything, this album reminds you of how small you are. That's why you hate it, little man.
Go back to the kinds of records other nonentities just like you listen to, little man. I don't know what they are. Nirvana or the Beatles or Bob Dylan or U2 or whatever other garbage it is the kinds of burnouts and dropouts who end up becoming record reviewers relate to these days. The names change as the years pass, but they're all the same.
Maybe, just maybe, you're getting tired of being a little man. Getting tired of letting other people tell you what kind of music you should listen to, what you should think, what you should feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars This One's Got It All... May 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a band who's gotten a bad rap by most metal fans throughout the world, everyone just seems to write them off as the "cheesiest metal band ever." Blender magazine (corporate junk) made them one of the top 50 worst acts of all time. Gimme a break! I was hesitant to buy this at first but i wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I am more then happy with my purchase.
The opening track "wheels of fire" could really be compared to the opening track on Metallica's "Kill em All" debut. It's about riding your bike at night and not caring, the rebellious attitude that goes hand in hand with heavy metal music, just in with the Metallica line "no life till leather..." A fantastic way to open an album, the song is catchy, memorable, and will have your fist in the air in no time. The second track is really kind of egocentric, basically about how Manowar kills every other band out there, a good song, another fisterupper, but the lyrics you just gotta appreciate for their again, rebellious attitude. The third track is a pretty good ballad, but I've heard better. Good acoustic work... yes, they use ACOUSTICS! Although the vocals really weren't made for acoustic ballads. Next there's a bass guitar solo that's so fast and energetic it's amazing on "sting of the bumblebee." A fast high note bass guitar really does sound like a bee!
After this there seems to be a break in the album's attitude, which is a really cool thing, the songs "Crown and the Ring" and "Kingdom Come" are fantasy oriented power metal tracks, one which mostly sticks to keyboards and clean vocals, slows down but has a very epic stand-atop-a-cliff-with-sword-in-hand feel to it, creative and highly melodic.
