Editorial Reviews

Manowar concerts are a rite of passage for all fans of true metal. Manowar s consistently awesome display of power, might and magic on stage remain peerless and unparalleled. It s the legend to which other metal bands aspire. But how could it possibly be captured and contained on compact disc? Yet, Manowar has achieved the seemingly impossible more on than one occasion: in 1997, with the landmark Hell On Wheels and then just two years later, in 1999, with Hell On Stage . Now, nearly a decade later, Manowar is about to achieve the impossible for a third time with Gods Of War Live .

There is no other band like Manowar, who recently performed in front of its largest audiences ever during the German leg of the Demons, Dragons and Warriors 2007 Tour, on which the recording for this double-disc set was captured. In addition to songs from both Warriors Of The World and a 35 minute encore of songs from Gods Of War, this more than two-hour collection of classics includes some rare gems.

Ah, as I approach my ten year annivesary of being into the "Kings of Metal", I figured I'd write a review of what is their latest release, "Gods of War Live" (wow what an original title).

Anyway, as any Loincloth enthusiast should know, this is Manowar's third live album, if you don't count live dvds of Manowar (six and counting).

Now, I understand each live album is supposed to have more and more songs that aren't played as much live anymore, and this is no exception.

As far as the album goes, it ranges from mediocre to great, and this album rating wise could fall in between the two "Hell" live albums, that is Hell on Wheels and Hell on Stage live.

One complaint I would have is the audience is slightly muffled. Not as muffled as on Hell on Wheels, but missing that audience interactive element in the mix that made Hell on Stage so great.

Also, Eric Adams flounders a bit on this recording. The first three songs feature him in mainly a lower register, and you can blame this on the rigors of touring, but he sounds tired on the first few songs.

The band really shines on most of the tracks though, especially the second half of the first disc (Mountains, The Oath, etc).

I am mixed on playing the songs in a different key. Yes they tune much lower than back then (I know some of the songs were tuned to D back then, and then now they tune THESE songs even lower now. The songs in E back then are tuned to D now), but I sometimes feel like it stunts how the music originally sounded. I suppose I'm a stickler about this, as I can make the same complaint about 90's live Priest and also any live Black Sabbath. Unlike Priest (Sabbath has always been all over the place tuning wise), Manowar are able to get away with this up to a point.

I bought this because I was curious and WOW what a fantastic sounding "live" recording this is. I was never really a fan of them but after one listen to this recording I plan on purchasing some of the older Manowar releases. I wonder why they never seem to play the states?
