Pretty entertaining Metal. Not my favorite thing ever, but I'm not gonna be a bitch like Frownland and pretend that Manowar aren't fun.

7/10

What happened with Frown? Didn't he say he voted 1? I don't see any 1 votes.

By Into Glory Ride though, Manowar have their shtick well and truly together. On Battle Hymns, there's little real reference to swords, sorcery or kind of even sex, with a lot of mixed metaphors, and you look at the sleeve and wonder is this some sort of neo-Nazi band? But the cover of IGR leaves no room for doubt. Sure, it's cheesy as all hell, but that's Manowar for you. They're not meant to be taken seriously.

This album reeks of quality cheese though, and while I agree "Warlord" is almost more a song that belongs on the previous album, and "Hatred" is pretty OTT even for Manowar (and little more than an excuse for Ross to wank off on the guitar in a similar way to how Joey showed us how badass on the bass he is on "William's Tale") the epic power and depth of the rest of the songs more than make up for these slight low points, and lead into the third in their "golden age", if you will, period, with Hail to England waiting to unleash a powerful salvo in support of its dark brother here.

Perfect? No, but very damn close. God tier indeed.
That cover is the ultimate in metal garbage.

piggy backing this

i don't really have anything else to add to be honest, so instead let's reminisce over the dubtrack session that saw batty and i listen to nothing but hours on end of manowar.

one of my favorite heavy metal albums. It gallops triumphantly at an awesomely slowish to mid pace, the song structure is extraordinary and expansive, and the almost lo fi production is amazing.

I'd have no idea personally but Mercyful Fate have a sound that I feel could have drawn from this one heavily

The **** you talkin' bout?! You forgot? This is the next level of Into Glory Ride.



Like one of the other ten albums of metal or something.
