Holy crap, a Manowar thread.  Can this become a regular thing?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Leo1DTmspx4

I'm the master of the world I have no fear of man or beast 
Born inside the soul of the world
Riding hard breaking bone with steel and stone
Eternal might I was born to wield.

Let us drink to the battles we've lived and we've fought 
Celebrate the pain and havoc we have wrought 
Great heroes charge into the fight 
From the north to the south in the black of night

The clash of honor calls to stand when others fall 
Gods of war feel the power of my sword

... There was no part of The Triumph Of Steel that was anything but amazing.  Also, a 28 minute long song all about Achilles and the Trojan War?  Fark yeah.
 
2014-08-15 02:35:13 PM  
Funny how they always leave out the country songs about a man that needs killing.
 
2014-08-15 02:42:44 PM  
Maybe some fans of sporting events and/or opposing teams are unable to handle the immense power that emanates from anything related to Manowar. So they have to go with lesser levels of power that don't provide a completely unfair advantage.
 
2014-08-15 02:43:29 PM  
MANOWAR should do the soundtrack to the next Elder Scrolls game.

Seriously. Playing Skyrim without listening to them is worse than taking a dump in the CD tray of your console/PC and ramming it shut.

Anything below 60 bpm with intense vocal harmonies makes me bawl like a damn babby.

"We All Need Saving" by Jon McLaughlin, just forget about it, what with the tears and shiat.

What is a metal band whose members dress like leather power bottoms, Alex?

Just throwing out my favorite Manowar song. It's like HIghlander on steroids.

To address the research....I wonder if they found the same effect with a live, non-electric music. I'd think that in such a situation it would be the drums...the proverbial drums of war...and not the bass line. So are they measuring the bass or the amplification as a source of power?

Warriors of the World Live

Crown and the Ring Live (Orchestral/Choir version)'

When all the fans know all the lyrics to all the songs, it's awesome.   When it's Manowar--it's beyond awesome.

Did you see the version of the Conan movie someone re-edited to Manowar songs?

I've used music forever in this way. Do I have a race today? Am I gettin ready to hit the track? Oh I know what to play to get myself twitchy and ready for a fight...

Doesn't everybody do this?

Given that the music before the bridge in We will Rock you consists entirely of clapping and stomping, and that the hot parts of Get Ready for This have essentially the same beat as that clapping and stomping, you think right.

Dudezilla: If Manowar is so great, how come they don't have an umlaut in their name?


An umluat is an attempt to give your lame-assed band name balls.  MoW don't need that weak sauce.

I'm as big a metal fan as there is and Manowar just doesn't do it for me.  It is lacking something that I find pleasurable in other forms of metal, I'm not sure what but I just can't stand them.

Vulgar Display is almost perfect for me, a great balance between groove metal and brutal noise/screamo.   Cowboys was silly and Far Beyond was good but was teetering into noise nonsense.  Trendkill and Reinventing the Steel are bad.

Down's first album was majestic.

Yes, Van Canto is fun, goofy and metal all at once. Absolutely awesome stuff, great covers and they make great music for D&D Campaign background music.

And, yes, they're as serious about music as MANOWAR is, but maybe more so, because they are ze German.

I grew up with metal and always liked it.  Just haven't listened to it in a while.  I don't even know who MANOWAR is.  Its been a while.
