The original post

Posted by Clintagram on 03.06.2006 at 00:23
As I sit here and listen to most likely the greatest band of all time I notice that there isn't a topic for them, so I decided to make one. Manowar are a band that you must love, and if you don't, you're gay. Haha, seriously though. They make some wicked music, though pompous, they deserve to be, I mean, they are the KINGS OF METAL. I do enjoy their upbeat attitude, killer riffing, and Eric Adams god like vocals. Very manly. I would call them Heavy Metal (or moreover, Traditional Metal) than anything, but they do have some Speed and Power Metal tendencies every now and then. Any fans?

And remember kids, while other bands play - Manowar kill.

Well, I didn't expect too much but that song doesn't sound bad imo. They only released 30 minutes of new material in the past 5 years and they're not under any contractual obligation (they have their own label) so I'm hoping the next album at least isn't as boring as Gods of War.

Gods Of War took five years to make and was also on their own label so don't get your hopes up

Don't underestimate this band. They still had an ample amount of potential inherited in them. I'll surely hit the stores and get a CD.

save yourself some potential money and listen to the record first by downloading/streaming.

Seriously, this has got to be one of the most boring and banal bands in the world. Seriously.

It's just that generic and stupid and stuff. Novelty wears off after a few songs only.

Wow, even some of the more hot-headed Manowar fans have to admit they are not exactly creative geniuses.

I'm pretty sure he was sarcastic though

Maybe they're so creative and diverse they're actually challenging themselves to sound as if they've never had more than a single idea in their career. They're post-ironic or something.

Well if it isn't Captain optimism


such a fucking antagonist all the time man, you and all the other narrow-minded MSers can critique Manwoar all you want, but please tell me which old school Heavy Metal band in the '80's were dealing with Viking/Odinist themes like they were?
Maybe by today's standard they don't seem unique because, a whole array of metal bands take on such themes.....
But what other band is like Manowar? Their sound is unqiuely them! Am I wrong? I've never heard anyone write "anthems" in the way that they do.
Also, what about the Gods Of War album? Does that album not stand out? Amon Amarth for instance are arguably the most-viking obsessed band in the world, but even they don't add the filmscore-esque elements like Manowar! I'd say that qualifies as diverse.

I don't quite understand what's wrong with me saying they're "creative". What's funny about that?

Oh, but because they wore loin cloths, are machismo and full of themselves at times......that's a good reason to count them out?

No, it's because they've been writing the same songs for almost as long as Marcel's been alive.

I am by all means a Manowar fan .. many of their songs have great energy .. but still to me it is bloody obvious that calling them creative has to be some sort of joke ... there is even a drinking game to the song "Warrior's of the world" where you pick a word and have to drink whenever it is mentioned .. something like:

steel, warrior, blood, die, death, sword, true, kill, power, ...

I still like Manowar but they are pretty repetative

A lyrical theme does not make a band creative. Also they dealt with viking themes only later (as far as I remember) and was restricted to a small amount of songs compared to their usual chest thumping, self-promoting and cringe-inducingly cheesy "metal" lyrics.

Even if that is true (I am not saying it is, more like jumping over this point), they released the same shit with basically no variation (aside from that godawful God of War).

It stands out because it is even more tear-inducingly boring than most of the things they did. Also how in the hell would that be unique or creative when symphonic power metal bands like Rhapsody did things like that wayy before and it sucked even then.

What is wrong with it is that it is just not true.

No that is just one more bonus reason to ridicule them.

I'm just gonna come out and say that Dawn of Battle is probably my favorite song (or the only one I like).
Their music is good for AMV's, though. Got a lot of good ones on YT.

Check this out. There apparently was a time when Manowar (and Joey Demayonaise) were actually cool guys and fun.
This is from a kids' tv show where they first performed Gloves Of Metal and then answered questions asked by the kids in the studio,
