Overview

Like most latter-day Manowar outings, Warriors of the World is a mixed affair rife with all of the clichés that make Manowar either Gods or an amusing joke, depending on what side of the inner circle you reside on. No matter how big a fan of the band someone might be, it's hard to take the operatic "Nessun Dorma" and succeeding power ballad "Valhalla" seriously, as they sound like something Spinal Tap would have thought up when not worrying about amps that went to 11. In fact, too much of this disc relies on similar cheeseball balladry that, try as it might to be gallant and heroic, really comes off as self-parody. Fortunately, the disc has enough tracks that do reach higher decibels, including the last four and disc-opener "Call to Arms," that are more indicative of what made Manowar great, namely heavy riffs and heavier attitude that, even when embracing an ethos that many would be embarrassed about, still comes off sincere. Manowar mean it when they sing about the "House of Death" and how they will "Fight Until We Die," and that's why you should love them, warts and all.

Tired of left-wing scum choking the radio waves with rap and hip hop? Dissatisfied with popular ''alternative'' or ''new metal'' rock bands sporting Third World body piercings, stinking dred locks, and politically correct lyrics? Would you like to see Thor destroy Sumner Redstone's (aka Murray Rothstein's) diversity-loving MTV network? Yes? Well, then, by Odin's good eye, this album is for you! If you're ready to feel the sanguine steeds of your European ancestry pound through your veins, crank this album. I invite you to revel in this godly testosterone overload of Nietzschean will to power. If you enjoyed this review, you should visit The National Alliance website. Also visit Vanguard News Network (VNN). Hail to Odin! Hail to Manowar! Hail to Our People!

That´s for Manowar fans only. The rest should leave the hall. Feel the thunder of heavy metal. Honor your ancestry. Remember the days of honor and pride when men were Warriors, not faggots wearing poser clothes.

Manowar is still alive and well! These tracks are even faster and louder than before. If only the tracks Nessun Dorma and 'An American Trilogy' could be swept away, this would be perfect album. I wish Manowar carries on! Hail And Kill!
