Teraz możecie się ze mnie śmiać, bo to kupiłem.
Lol. Sprzedaj póki świeże xd
A czemu piszesz, że DeMaio sikał ze śmiechu przy mikrofonie? Tych partii mówionych nie nagrywa też Adams?
BTW, znaleziona recka na metal-archives:
I love when bands take the epic direction and throw orchestral bits and concept albums into the mix. "Gods of War" is the first in a series of albums that will tell the tale of the Gods of War. This album focuses on Odin. This wouldn't be a good introduction to Manowar, so start with the other stuff first if you were thinking of introducing yourself to Manowar with this album. Thats a job for the first four, Louder Than Hell, or Kings of Metal.
If you dislike the orchestral aspects and/or spoken sections of bands such as Luca Turilli, Rhapsody, Symphony-X, and Nightwish among many others you most likely won't be a fan of this. Being a big fan of orchestra stuff, this is, overall, my favorite Manowar album.
Overture to the Hymn of the Immortal Warriors - Epic. I like it a lot, sounds like a film score. Triumphant yet foreboding. A nice way to kick off the album.
The Ascension - More orchestral epicness. Don't really understand why the buildup of the previous song would lead into this. Its suitable for the flow of the album storywise though. Once Eric Adams starts singing all is well. He sounds better than ever.
King of Kings - I've heard this one before, and was a big fan. Never heard it with The Ascension into, and it flows way better with it. This doesn't sound all that different from the original, but I'm not complaining; it's a great song. This solo is definitely crisper and has a better reverb. Also, the outro builds up far more epicly.
Army of the Dead Part 1 - Reminds me of "The Divine Wings of Tragedy" by Symphony-X, what with Eric Adams singing with a bunch of other vocalists. The ending falsetto is fucking epic.
Sleipnir - I'd prefer they cut down on all this spoken shit. :grumble: Its short and to the point though. This song is fucking excellent though. Reminds me of Fight Until We Die. The chorus is great.
"Carry we, who die in battle
Over land and sea
Across the rainbow bridge to Valhalla
Odins waiting for me!"
Very nice solo too, Karl Logan is one of my favorite guitarists because of his distinct and precise sound. And the repeating chorus is, as always, a nice little sing-a-long.
Loki God of Fire - Nice riffs! This is a nice heavy head-banger. The riffs seem different than what I've become accustomed to with Manowar, but its welcome. They need to variate their riffs more like this. Once again, another killer solo.
"God of Fire! BURNING HIGHER! God of Fire! Into the sky!"
Ripping outro guitar solo? Check. Very nice touch.
Blood Brothers - Clean Eric Adams singing. Majestic background music. I can dig on this. He really knows how to show off his range and power. This is exactly why he's my favorite metal vocalist. This reminds me of Swords in the Wind meets Hearts of Steel meets Fight for Freedom. I like the solo in this one too, melodic and simple. Fits the solemn mood.
Overture to Odin - All this orchestra makes me nostalgic for Manowar; it definitely carries their sounds and ideals quite well. It's done perfectly. I don't grow tired of any of it, it serves the album perfectly. They should've wrote the soundtrack for 300. I could definitely see this album used in a movie. Just imagine doing your taxes or homework to this music.
The Blood of Odin - Menacing tune. More talking, "Perched upon his shoulders are ravens," yadda yadda, magic sword, golden helmet, eight legged horse, yadda yadda.
The Sons of Odin - Another song I had heard before the album. This is the song that pumped me up for this album, hearing it made this wait a long one. One of their best songs...EVER. Even the spoken part is as epic as hell.
Glory Majesty Unity - Part 2 of The Warriors Prayer. Remember? "Tell me a story grandfather!" "Well, get me your storybook!" Now they fit it in with the story. Nice sound effects makes you visualize the Sons of Odin ripping apart entire armies by themselves.
Gods of War - This song mixes the best of what we've heard from the album; the film score bits, epic mid-paced brooding doom metal thats reminiscent of old-school Manowar, and Eric Adams godly vocals. I'm glad I waited to listen to this in the context of the album. A great song. Another kick-ass solo.
Army of the Dead Part 2 - This isn't that much different. Probably a little less satisfying than Part 1 because of its placement. Another great ending falsetto.
Odin - Nice little guitar harmony intro, sounds like the Funeral March section of Achilles back on "The Triumph of Steel." This is an epic mid-tempo number much like a lot of the prior songs. They even bring back Army of the Deads vocal harmonies backed by guitar. Nice touch. And they bring back that kick ass falsetto too.
Hymn of the Immortal Warriors - And so we've reached the last song of the album. Acoustic guitars and sweeping strings back Eric Adams clear, powerful vocals. A good ender, it picks up nicely. Eric Adams kicks it into the higher range of his voice at the perfect time, and shortly after the epic heaviness returns.
This album flows very well from one song to the next, telling an epic tale you can't not listen to in full. This isn't an album meant to be listened to in pieces, it's definitely a more enjoyable experience if you set aside an hour to listen to it in full followed by 20 minutes or so to reflect on its greatness.
