I can't believe this bass sound.
Robson L. V. Marini
Manowar, your fans love you but this just didn't work the way you wanted it to.
Mike From Canada
At worst it's just a collection of bad boring songs.

Yeah, this album is going to get some bad reviews, and it mostly deserves it. It is not a BAD album, because we all know we've heard much worse--but by Manowar standards, this is probably their worst full-length LP, at least upon first impression. I'll get into some of the reasons why in a moment.

What is strange is that this comes off the heels of THUNDER IN THE SKY: which I thought was the best thing they've done since Triumph of Steel. Fantastic songs, great performances with real feeling, and some of the best production value I've heard in a metal album in a long, long time. The thing kicked ass, and that little EP is probably the antithesis to this in all the ways I mentioned.

I think there are a few main problems on this. First is that the album is simply boring. I listened to the first half of it and stopped because, aside from the great first track, everything was plodding, paint-by-numbers. The tracks weren't necessarily bad, they were just completely mediocre. Only at the very end does the album pick up, and then only a little. I had the same initial feeling for Warriors of the World, but the worst tracks there are on par with most of the better tracks here, and when that album kicked ass it really did so. This one is just uninspired and bland. It has been described as "simplistic, back-to-basics", perhaps in response to Gods of War, but not in a good way, it is simplistic and bland in a rather uninspired way, not unlike Metallica's St. Anger.

The second is the production quality. The songs are written boringly, but the album sounds boring too. I thought my EQ settings were wrong at first and spent a good ten minutes playing around with my system trying to fix the problem before I realized it was just the way the album is.

First a little backstory, I used to be one of the "die-hard fans" , been following this band for 30 yrs,still have Joey's bass pick that he personally handed to me back in 88' at a club in Bayshore NY after driving 4 hrs to see them. Triumph of Steel was the last really GOOD Manowar album, everything since has been somewhere between disappointing to fair at best, then after another ridiculous 6 yr wait here it is, and wow , I mean WOW! I was fully prepared for disappointment but not the outright slap in the face that this album is.
This is so bad it almost seems like a bad inside joke is being perpetrated on the fans, it seems like more of a spoof than anything put out by spoof bands such as Spinal Tap, Steel panther, or Tenacious D, I am being serious, any album by those bands seems almost "Shakespearean" compared to this.
First, let's address the 800lb gorilla in the room- the HORRENDOUS production, this is not only the worst production on a Manowar album but may go down in the annals of metal history as one of the worst productions ever, even the few good tracks on here, such as the title track, are rendered almost unlistenable by the horrendous annnoying bass buzz that sounds like a blown speaker and permeates every track on the album, why Joey seemed to think this would sound "cool" is beyond me.Then Joey made a big hoopla over the return of drummer Donny Hamzik, yet most tracks sound like programmed drums, and if they aren't programmed then they went out of thier way to make real drums sound like programmed drums. Guitar solos-:lousy, misplaced, and without cohesion.

I am a HUGE MANOWAR fan since 1982. I have a tattoo of MANOWAR on my right arm. I have seen the band live probably 12 times both in the US and in Europe, and have met them personally on occasion. It pains me to say it but this album is horrid. Yes, the production is poor but that is not the main problem. The songs themselves would not have made ANY of teh previous albums. (I liked Gods of War). This is the first MANOWAR album I have heard (and I have heard them ALL - many times) that lays totally flat, sounds bad, and does not have a single song that I find worthy. I would not expect many, or any, of these tracks to make it to a live show. I am still a fan of the band, I always will be, but I need to call it what it is; horrid.

...That's the best way to describe this new album, like one of the other reviewers said, this sounds like a spoof, like someone is trying to mock Manowar by taking all the things they been made fun of for in the past and exaggerating them X 10,...ultra simplistic riffs, ultra cheesy lyrics, egomaniacal bass mix, and production that sounds worse than their debut 30 yrs ago, using 30 yr old technology. There actually WAS a Manowar spoof band that came out a few years ago called "Nanowar" and if you disregard the purposefully ridiculous lyrics ( that aren't that far from Manowar's real lyrics)the actual song compositions are STILL stronger than what we are given here.
My first reaction to hearing this was a big WTF ? after the literal headache I got trying to listen to these songs over the "blown speaker/african killer bee" bass droning, the second emotion you get is embarrassment, you know the kind of embarrassment you would feel if you were watching as the wind blew the toupee off a 60 yr old man as he was trying to pick up a girl half his age,...yep that kind of embarrassment.
In one of the greatest examples of art imitating life, you have Joey's obnoxiously buzzing distorted bass mixed so high as to almost drown out all other members of the band, almost as a metaphor for his ego drowning out all input from any other bandmember.
