MANOWAR are back after 6 years and have released another triumphant epic CD loaded with anthems that we will all be singing at each of their shows. Anthem number one will be "Call To Arms". Yeah, we all know that these lyrics may sound silly, such as fighting for Metal, but you know what? This is what we all live for. MANOWAR is here to lead us into the holy land. They have never bowed down to commercialism nor will they ever. They are here to say that it's alright to be brother or sister Metal worldwide. Music unites the world and they do just that. Raise your fists high and proud when you hear this at a concert or when you are listening to this at home. What is also cool about the opening track is the fact that it isn't a rip roaring Power Metal-track that that we are all used to on their previous CDs.
"The Fight For Freedom" should be America's new national anthem. After September 11th, this song will have special meaning to all American Metalheads. But the simple fact is that this isn't about America only, it's about everyone who wants to be free. While this track is laced with American images such as eagles flying, all countries want to be free. So, this is for everyone who wants to spread their wings.
MANOWAR also tackles the task of covering "Nessun Dorma" and singing it in Italian which was done by Puccini. Very classical and classy. The band goes on to add orchestra arrangements on "The March" in which they cover and pay home to the one and only Elvis. (Sorry, but that is "The American Trilogy" - Alex)
"Warriors Of The World" sums up why we are all here and the rest of the disc just takes off leaving the ground and leaving all the rest in the dust. The guys have really spent their time wisely by carefully creating another masterpiece that will satisfy all MANOWAR-fans and hopefully rake in new ones. The band truly cares about their product and only deliver the best for their fans.
