The fifth full-length studio album by legendary American Epic Heavy/Power Metal band.
This is Metal as it should be! Energetic, great riffs, the incarnation of a vocal-god in Eric Adams and of course a whole bunch of the best Metal songs that ever have seen the light of this planet!!
With "Carry On", "Defender" and "Black Wind, Fire And Steel" there are three immortal classics on this album, which truly deserve their place in the Olymp of Metal. Stomping rhythms, screeching guitars, the divine vocals of Eric Adams - you just have to love it!
This was the first Manowar album to feature artwork by long-time collaborator Ken Kelly, and also the first Heavy Metal album to be recorded and mixed entirely on digital equipment!!
"Defender" features the speech of Orson Welles. The album was released 2 years after Welles died. The recording of Welles' speech was re-used from the original 1983 recording of the song.
"Blow Your Speakers" was selected by VH1 as one of the 40 Most Awesomely Bad Metal Songs.
