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.

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!

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.

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.

Manowar are probably one of the most unfairly maligned bands I can think of. They're incredibly talented musically, and pretty much the only heavy metal band with a bassist who's not only good, but pretty much astounding (listen to the Rimsky-Korsakov cover, "Sting of the Bumblebee" for proof).

Why are they the butt of so many jokes? In case you don't know, their lyrics consist of what sound like Conan the Barbarian madlibs. Nearly every song seems to mention "steel", "warriors", "swords", and "real metal". Their music is sometimes so macho, it borders on homoerotic. They make Dio seem grounded and they lack the tongue-in-cheek self-awareness of Gwar or Kiss.

That aside, they're probably the most technically talented of the power metal bands to emerge from the 80s that had any songwriting abilities (vs. a Yngwie who's technically brilliant but can't write songs). Their songs are well structured, yet provide ample room for them to show off their skills. The singer really has a pretty astounding range. The guitarist is also excellent.

They're also extremely enjoyable fun to listen to. Their songs are fairly upbeat and promote largely prosocial messages (well, excluding the deeply misogynistic teenage wish-fulfillment fantasy "Pleasure Slave") unlike much "nu-metal" - which shifted from raiding Dungeons and Dragons for questionable subject matter to taking after serial killers, looking like glam singers with too much eyeliner, and whining about how tough life was.

This album is the best one of Manowar's that I've heard. The songs are all upbeat and ideally suited for workouts (it's in heavy rotation during mine right now).

"Hail and Kill" is a standout - as are several other tracks.
