I did a full audio analysis of this remastered "silver edition" of the album, and on the first track alone, "Blood Of My Enemies", there are at least 254 clipped (that is, cut off, LOST) samples on the left channel and 312 on the right channel. Please note that this is something completely different to listening to a correctly mastered CD as loud as you want - the sound will be intact in that case, and the loudness limit will be defined only by your audio equipment and your taste. On the other hand, an album that has been victimized by the "loudness war" will be missing parts of the sound even when played at a low volume.
It's a real shame that a band that's known for their perfeccionism when it comes to their music, and specially Joey DeMayo, allowed this absolutely classic album to be released this way. If you don't have "Hail To England" on CD, make sure you get the original release, which was mastered correctly.
For more information on the "loudness war", just Google the expression between quotes.
Once again, Manowar made a record with lush musical abilty, story telling lyrics, and quite simply heavy metal in it's pure form.

Picking your favourite MANOWAR album is a lot harder than picking your nose.
Today however it's Sign of the Hammer. Why? Because I've just listened to it!
Opening Track "Blood of my Enemies" sets the (death) tone for the album, HARD, HEAVY and FURIOUS and committed to destroying the lives of all those who follow FALSE METAL. Probably.
Hopefully "Each Dawn I Die" is what happens to all who follow FALSE METAL. Hopefully.
"Kill with Power" is what should happen to all those who follow FALSE METAL.
"Hail to England" should be the national anthem of Englandland and the WI.
"Army of Immortals" is what all us followers of TRUE METAL are.
"Black Arrows" should make all other bass players give up.
"Bridge of Death" is a slow burning MONOLITHIC MONSTER of a track, a KRAKKING good way to KLOSE the album. ALL HAIL!
So, if you like METAL - BUY IT!!!!
If you don't like METAL - BUY IT, you soon will!!!!!!
