well I feel like that's a given. Mercyful Fate probably isn't a very widely used comparison but in my opinion it's unmistakable

Oh and I always forget that this is the most epic metal song ever.

You ever check out Wolf? They got a nice Mercyful Fate meets the NWOBHM thing going on.

This is absolutely the sickest of modern NWOBHM.

There are some poseur fans of false metal holding back the overall awesomeness of this album, and its chance of being admitted to Valhalla (ie rated a classic) by voting low. You know what to do: saddle up, brave warriors, and sally forth! Actually, let Sally Forth wait until the battle is done - there's work ahead. Glory to the brave!

It's not my fault Manowar aren't as awesome as their reputation. Wait, their reputation is that they're "awesome" - with an ironic wink. Kinda like Hammerfall, except I think Hammerfall can be quite good when they manage to stop being so horribly bland for a moment.

I'm not opposed to cheese in metal at all, but... this album isn't really doing much for me. It was fun to listen to as a sort of exploration of metal history that I haven't paid much attention to, but I don't think they're really very good musicians or song writers / composers if I gotta be perfectly honest...

I still haven't the slightest idea how anyone could think this

They have a pretty original sound here driven by some of the most complicated and pronounced bass work ever. The bass is supposed to take precedent over the guitar too.

did you even listen to this song

Ross Friedman (aka Ross Funicello, aka Ross the Boss, aka Ross "The Boss" Funicello) played guitar for The Dictators. Then went onto a second career as guitar/keyboard player for Manowar.

The Dictators - California Sun
One of the greatest cover songs of all time.

Ross The Boss played a white Gibson SG back then.
