God of Thunder! God of Rain!

Earthshaker who feels no pain!!

Yes you pussies, its time to discuss what is undoubtedly the greatest Manowar album and one of the greatest heavy metal albums ever written. Im talking about Sign of The Hammer of course. Guyana, Sign of The Hammer, Thor, All Men Play on Ten...even already were spoilt for choice! And enough bass noodling to rival Brocas Helm too. Discuss.

Guyanaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Sweet jesus what an album. Cant believe for a good 3 years all I heard of this band was 'Warriors of The World'. Glad I rectified that! Hail To England is a close second of course.

One of the best heavy metal albums crafted by man.

Mountains is a brilliant song, as is Animals despite it being entirely different with the rest of the album.

People always take the piss outta Manowar, but they wrote some classic ****ing heavy metal albums. Hail to England would be my preference.

Yeah fact. Plus most of the best heavy metal bands are in part ridiculous, its an inherent part of metal really.

ALL MEN PLAY ON TEN!

Stupidest concept for a song ever? Possibly.

That being said, it's the only Manowar album I have (on vinyl ) but it's damn good.

Gonna have to actually disagree, Into Glory Ride is easily their masterpiece IMHO. Truly a brilliant album, and anyone who thinks that this band's (80's material) is merely a 'joke' or a parody, is bad at listening to metal.

'Thank you for the kool-aid.....reverend Jim'


Only Manowar could make that sound great.

I've gone through all the albums deleting the bass solo tracks off my ipod, now i'm tempted to make a cut down version of 'Achilles...' removing the bass and drum solo sections to make a much better song.

Nah i've still got the beginning of Guyana on, its a vinyl rip i did of the album so Thunderpick and Guyana are stuck together as one track.

And Sting of the Bumblebee is still there for the novelty value, its better than most his other solo's anyway
