Product Description

Just when you thought heavy metal had either died or mutated into dissonant alternative music, along comes Manowar to prove once again that straight-ahead guitar crunch, powerhouse drumming, and histrionic vocal yowls can be far more potent than the latest Nirvana clone band--and far more amusing. On Louder Than Hell, Manowar guard the heavy metal torch with unintentionally hilarious lines like, "The Gods made heavy metal and they saw that it was good/They said to play it louder than hell, we promised that we would." This never-say-die spirit, along with muscular, audacious riffs, razor-sharp hooks, and strong, simple songwriting keeps Manowar's flame burning, even when they resort to violin-laden power ballads like "Courage." --Jon Wiederhorn

As an incarnated Manowar fan I was very exited about how this album would be before it was released. I have all the Manowar albums and I wasn't sure if they could manage to create another masterpiece as the previous releases. But they did! The Louder Than Hell album fits right in to the fine collection. It is an outstanding CD full of adventures and excellent performed metal music. The music style on this album is very alike the style the play on the Kings of Metal album and the Fighting the World album. Well, if you like Manowar or adventure metal in general this album is album will suit your CD drawer perfect...

Louder than Hell is really a proper title for this release. This is the loudest, hardest and most unrelenting release from these long-time metal gods. Manowar goes for the simple, brutally powerful beauty of power chords and lots of double kick drum thunder here, and to good effect. If you can sit still and not feel like kicking some ... with this disk on, perhaps they should take you out back and bury you. If there was ever a disk to get hyped up for weight lifting, this would be the one. Manowar shows us nothing new, other than a new shredder at the guitar post (the capable Karl Logan). Courage, the ballad/heroic ode of this disk, might seem a bit odd to some of you who've not been indoctrinated into the ways of Manowar, but you'll end up humming it in the car one day, mark my words. Not as powerful as "Triumph of Steel" (lacks the mighty Rhino's drumming), as classically Manowar as "Kings of Metal", or as wonderfully "True Metal" as "Hail to England", but a must-have for both fans and newcomers to the Manowar world.

This album is very good indeed (as are all manowars albums), This is their latest studio album.
The differnce between this album and the rest is that it is a bit heavier (But don't let that put you off if you don't like it heavy, it's still classic manowar) Also Manowar have a new guitar player who is really good, as good as ross the boss (No disrespect to ross by the way)
Songs like 'Outlaw','Brothers of Metal','The power' and 'The gods made heavy metal' make me so glad I bought this album. Some people I know don't like 'Courage' but if you take it as what it is, not a metal song but just a really well written song, you will enjoy it, eric's vocals are superb.
Buy this album, don't stop to ask questions just buy it!

Good album. My favorite track is the Gods made Heavy Metal. Besides that it all kind of blurs together. Manowar ' s earlier stuff was a lot better but still worth the pick up but you can also get that one Track and be good.

Loads of great material on this - 7 out of the 10 tracks do SHINE. Brothers of Metal, The Gods Made Heavy Metal, Courage, King, Outlaw, The Power, and Today is a Good Day To Die (a nice instrumental - soft and poignant in some parts, heavy and melodic in others - akin to parts of the funeral march off of Triumph of Steel - great song!) "Courage" is a very nicely done ballad with use of background choirs and piano/keys along with some wonderful singing by Eric Adams. Manowar over the years usually has done several tracks like this per album using keys, pianos, choirs, melotrons, and various background instruments including orchestra effects. Most times it comes off very cool, a few times no so much. This song here tho - it works, and the last half of the song is just outstanding, including lyrically.

Great follow-up to Triumph of Steel overall.

My only concerns with this is that:

1. New guitarist Karl Logan, who joined the band around 1995 after David Shankle left. Shankle was with Manowar going back to 1988-ish and the Kings of Metal tour, when he replaced Ross the Boss. Karl is a good guitar player, and I don't think the stylings were any better or worse per se than had Shankle played on the same songs on this album. Meaning, the guitar work would have sounded about the same. Logan solos are a bit more proficient on this album perhaps.

2. Eric Adams sings in a bit of a raspier, harsher, aggressive tone. Not a bad thing, but on previous Manowar albums his voice was more polished, clean, and powerful - showcasing solid arguments that even though some Manowar music has cheesy lyrics, the man was still one of metal's best singers. Granted I know he is also older by this release, so that may figure in also.

I am glad I got turned onto this old school heavy metal band. This is the 1st cd from them I own and dig the theatrics, riffs and cheezy lyrics. I like this one better than their 80s stuff, but I am not a hardcore fan...yet. The Gods made heavy metal and said that it was good - told us to play it louder than hell, promised that we would. Cool artwork and poster on the 1997 remaster.

1996’s Louder Than Hell album was the US Heavy Metal legends Manowar’s eight full-length opus, and served as a grand and defiant championing of Heavy Metal that was simultaneously both ahead of and behind its time. Manowar in steadfastly focusing on what could be argued as the “true” (the band certainly argue that themselves) aspects of the original Heavy Metal sound were throwing back to the early ‘80s heyday of Metal from which the band themselves came, something very uncool in the eyes of the Grunge and Alternative focused public at the time, and in so doing were setting up the future, predicting the soon to be popular Power Metal movement that had been brewing happily away for a decade but really exploded when bands like Hammerfall would break just a year or two later.

This album sees the return of drummer Scott Columbus, who was absent from the band’s superb previous album, 1992’s Triumph Of Steel, as well as seeing the introduction of new guitarist Karl Logan who’s muscular sound fit nicely into the band. It was self-produced by the band and released on Geffen. Just cast one eyeball at the album’s art and that should tell you whether or not you’ll love this album. Embarrassed by “cheesy” D&D bands? Think singing about being in a band is dated? Then step away! However…Think that close-up shot of ‘roided-out barbarian thumping an anvil is awesome? Then buy a copy without hesitation!

Musically, Louder Than Hell is another step down the road that the band have always been headed in. Manowar don’t make the same album over and over again, but they never make a head-scratching left turn either. This is the logical successor to Triumph Of Steel. You can see how Thrashy tracks like “Death Hector’s Reward” and “Ride The Dragon” from that record begat “Outlaw” on this record.
