In many ways, "Triumph Of Steel" is the closest thing to a consistent Manowar album. Everybody but the staunchest of fans will agree that the average Manowar album sports more than a couple killer tracks but is just the same riddled by fillers and silliness. However, on "Triumph Of Steel" Manowar manage to package every aspect of the latter category into the opening "Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts", allowing the listener to comfortably ignore it and enjoy the remaining seven tracks. This is actually quite a pity since the album's would-be center point does have some really catchy and punchy heavy metal to it and certainly some of the best lyrics bassist and chief songwriter Joey DeMaio has ever penned down. But the grating bass solo and the even worse drum solo alone (not that those are the songs only faults) suffice to tip the scales in favour of the skip button.

Manowar true metal they are the biggest posers around in the metal world even more so than the so-called glam metal bands from the Eighties. They even rip off their own fans ffs

The fact that you even buy into this whole "true metal" bs is lolworthy .

That this whole thing pretty much came from Gayowar is just one more reason to hate them.

This album is an uninspired turd. Sounds like they had completely run out of ideas for this one. The first track is an unnecessarily long snoozefest.

A masterpiece! That's what I though the first time I heard this album. Later, I got quite bred and haven't listened to the whole release for a long time. Definately not as good as their first 4 albums but very good compared to their later stuff.

Agree, maybe I would listen parts 6 and 8 again.

Surprisingly this is pretty good. The first song is mostly filler (except parts 6 & 8) and so are these overlong intros in some of the songs. "Metal Warriors", "Ride The Dragon", "The Power Of Thy Sword" and especially "Master Of The Wind" on the other hand make this one of the strongest Manowar albums IMO.

Heavy metal or no metal at all whimps and posers leave the hall

Never liked this one. The opening song could be decent if they shaved off 15 (!) minutes and the second part of the album feels plodding. Some of the songs has potential but apart from some strong riffs there's not much else to praise. The last song Master of the Wind is possibly the best one on the album, sounds like a follow up to Heart of Steel.
