Overview

Fighting the World

For four albums, Manowar blazed a self-appointed crusade for "True Metal," devoid of image or any commercial leanings, only to sign with a major label and sell out immediately. Practice what you preach, indeed. The songs on 1987's Fighting the World are actually a slight improvement over the band's previous offering Sign of the Hammer, but they are betrayed by the excessively clean production job herein. "Blow Your Speakers" and "Carry On" are blatant MTV contestants, and the big drumming of the title track sounds more like disco than metal. After getting the singles out of the way, the band carried on with business as usual (for the most part) for the album's second half. Particularly interesting is "Defender," another epic vehicle for an Orson Wells narration, the frenetic "Holy War," and the final Armageddon of "Black Wind, Fire and Steel."

All the tracks have same Manowar power but style is more rock'n'roll than metal. Still they are loyal for their fans and don't start doing any stupidities. "Fighting the World", "Blow Your Speakers" etc. tells that maybe they wanna sing about their music more than society. I trust if you like good metal you like this album too. True Metal rules!

A great classic example of 80's metal... If any of you enjoy music from Judast Priest, Kiss, Hammerfall, Mortification..etc. Then this is the best recomended ManowaR album for you or any other group for that matter.. This is only ManowaR album that holds that kind of style & intensity as mentioned above... Ones you get to track # 5 (Defender) your speakers will definetly blow up because that kind of music requires it's max sound... With this group you can definetly Fight The World......Hail & Kill
