I love Manowar. They are just the embodiment of all that is fun about metal. They may not be the brightest bulbs in the bunch, but they know how to turn boneheaded retard metal into an art form. You just have to unhook your brain first.

They just seem like an overdone fantasy epic metal band. It's cringeworthy in my opinion.

I like epic or fantasy metal sometimes but Manowar just kill it for me.

I'm a classicist. So is my pappy. The first metal thing I ever heard was Black Sabbath's self titled track and I thought it was magic in my ears. Their whole two disc best of is immense and was my gateway.

I also loved Maiden and Priest, but Sabbath have been my favorite all along and I imagine that's why Stoner/Doom styled Metal is my favorite to listen to.

The end

Well, duh. You're not supposed to take it seriously. You're supposed to indulge your inner dork (fantasy and/or metal) and put a shit eating grin on your face. They just make me happy. Their obvious passion for metal just brings back that feeling of when I was fourteen and just discovering metal and everything was new and magical and I was just giddy about listening to new bands all the time. I love music even more these days, but I can't help but be a little jaded more often than not, and Manowar makes me feel like a kid again.

I grew up listening to the same stuff my dad listens to, so I liked Metal (more specifically Iron Maiden) from an early age. But apart from them, I think it was Manowar that introduced me to Metal. It was after I got into them that I decided to explore that world. I still listen to Manowar occasionally, and my favourite album is Gods of War.

Metallica. I didn't really listen to music at all until I was like twelve or thirteen, then I just started listening to the radio, and within a few months I'd become a hardcore Metallica fan. I went out and bought Master of Puppets and both Load and Reload (I was still a moron after all) at the same time. This led me to hear about something called the "Big Four" which introduced me to my second love, Megadeth, not to mention Slayer and Anthrax. After that I couldn't get enough thrash metal, and I've never looked back since.
Basically this down to a T. It scares me how similar this is to my story.

The only downside is that I listened to metallica so much that now I can't stand them.

I had gotten a Dragonforce album years ago, and one day I listened to it. Changed my life.

Luckily I do not have this problem. I still bust out my old Metallica records on occasion.

Don't take this the wrong way, but...I love you. There. I said it.

That better not happen to me! I'd curse the Metal Gods for that one.
