Back in the day I had the 12" single of Thunder on the tundra and Hot flames and enjoyed thunder immeasurably it's still the strongest track on the album. The rest of which does not disappoint. I found the Norse mythos themed lyrics entertaining and like the recurring use of some throughout the disk. They could have put out a solid concept album if they'd had a mind to.
Much better over all than I hoped it would be. I really liked Pantera's vocals on steal your thunder, she has that husky Wendy O Williams kind of voice and wish she had done more lead vocals. In My reading I see where Jon Mikyl also learned to play guitar and perhaps it's a pity he did not play with his band, or possibly just as well . We will never know for sure. He did have some fully adequate to good musicians playing for him and there are some good hard rocking licks for your listening pleasure. Lyrically it's very satisfying it's a shame he didn't make it bigger in his day. I have found the videos difficult to watch, not being into the gimmicky muscle clown theatrics. But I have always preferred listening to music over most any band's videos or stage shenanigans.The additional tracks are great and make getting the deluxe edition of Unchained, unnecessary

Originally released in 1985, Only the Strong was the second full-length album from Canadian muscle-man turned cult heavy metal icon Thor, who made a name for himself as much for his on-stage feats of strength (bending iron bars and such) as for the band's Manowar-style metal.

Stage antics aside, Thor did manage to serve up some pretty solid traditional heavy metal. There are no real surprises here, just fast-paced, Maiden and Priest-inspired anthems about rocking, fighting and staying strong (presumably for metal). It's nothing terribly original, but this kind of early North American heavy metal has a lot of DIY charm and NWOBHM-inspired raw energy that's hard to resist. Closest comparisons are probably bands like Gotham City and Culprit, but yeah, it's impossible not to think of Manowar when you spin this one.

Obviously an album like Only the Strong isn't going to appeal to everyone, but if you collect cult `80s heavy metal and don't mind a little manly metal cheese, you really need to have at least one Thor album in your collection.

Edition Notes: Only the Strong has seen a couple of reissues in recent years. The one I have is on a Greek label and includes a pair of live bonus tracks. It sounds like it's been remastered, at least to some extent.

this was a great release back in 1985 ( wow 30 years already) anyway here in the new york area thor was getting a lot of hype at this time especially after the unchained ep and the fact that thor himself and pantera where living in nyc at this time, as i said in a previous review thor was kind of somewhat a regular at the old lamour east in elmhurst queens and i saw him there a few times in 1985 alone, also he came down to the club quite a bit to hang if he was not on tour, anyway this was a very good hm record for 1985 for those into this kind of image that was floating around the metal scene at this time especially MANOWAR who where huge at this time, anyway i always liked the mix on the LET THE BLOOD RUN RED UK 12 INCH but this lp version (the one on this disc) was almost as good, this record like all thor records as per 1985 had a rather raw sound, steve price sure shows off his talent here with the axe with some typical 80s solos and basically this album of them all came out well very mid 80s RAW sounding, though the band looked glammed out they where very heavy, they could have done just as well in t shirts and jeans but who am i to say, the thor gigs i saw in them days where in support of THIS record ONLY THE STRONG and thor sure had built up a big following here by the mid 80s, over all this is a very raw loud heavy sounding record and if you liked anything thor did before or after this i can 100% say you will love this album as it to this day is still about his best, also the bonus...Read more ›
