Guest review by

"Louder Than Hell" is the return of the band from the studio again, after 1992. In my opinion this is one of their best albums. It may have the same usual sound and the same lyrical themes, but it's actually a very good piece…

On the front cover, we see this "macho" guy, who's breaking his chains by hitting his hand on the anvil! It's an image of what you're going to be listening to; pure Heavy Metal! The innovation that caught my attention when I opened the album for the first time was that the cover picture is actually a part of a poster! This poster is the booklet of the album and it consists from the band's mascot in the front and the lyrics in the back. A very good idea, which many other bands copied later… I could easily stick this fine work of art on the wall, but then the album would be left "naked" since the booklet is essential…

Louder Than Hell is perhaps the first Manowar album that is not in some capacity amazing. On Battle Hymns, they decided that it was their mission in life to be Manowar - the loudest, manliest, most ridiculously pretentious heavy metal band in existence. They spent the next several albums casting about for the perfect way to achieve this; always highly successful, but still looking to go different places. On Kings Of Metal, they found the TRUE Manowar sound and produced some of their greatest works to date. Louder Than Hell was when they stopped trying.

  Courage is one of my favourite songs ever. The first three songs on the album are great too, but the rest of them are quite boring.

  Their last listenable release. Most songs are quite good, but I think the cheesy parts are more present than before.

Rating: 7 Pretty good IMO. To me "Return Of The Warlord", "King" and "Outlaw" are some of the Manowar classics
