Manowar – Warriors of the World – Brand New Vinyl

Finally. I have a lot of different music on vinyl, but no heavy metal. I’ve got some hard rock such as Deep Purple and Whitesnake, but no real, true heavy metal. Now I do. Manowar – Warriors of the Word.

Manowar - Warriors of the World LP

There are a lot of people who love heavy metal, but hate Manowar. They think of them as being cheesy, and cliche. Personally, I love Manowar. I think they rock hard, and hey, I love the fantasy subject matter. That helps.

Warriors of the World was released in 2002, and includes a tribute to the victims of September 11th, 2001. The song is called “The Fight For Freedom.” Also on the album is a tribute to Richard Wagner with “The March” and two covers, one is “An American Trilogy” by Elvis, and the other is one of my favorites, the aria from the opera Turandot, “Nessun Dorma” by Giacomo Puccini. If you think opera and heavy metal don’t mix, you haven’t heard this version.

Eric Adams is one of the most versatile singers I’ve heard, his pronunciations in German, Italian and Latin are great, yet he can scream like no one else.

For those of you who don’t know, Manowar is the loudest band in the world, according to Guiness Book of World Records. They reached an amazing 129.5 decibels in concert.

Here is an example of their true style with Call To Arms:

    I saw this album once at Princeton Record Exchange in NJ. I passed it up because I already had a hand full of stuff..Now I wish I didn’t. I have not seen this on vinyl since that day way back in 2002..A few months ago I bought Louder than Hell. That was $216.00 for a decent, copy. Not mint but in good used condtion.
