MANOWAR Hail To England Imperial Edition MMXIX (Remixed/Remastered) CD
MANOWAR made it clear from the beginning that they were a unique offer in the world of heavy music. With Black Sabbath laying the foundation and Judas Priest building on it, it was MANOWAR who finally upgraded the genre and proudly set the ethos and sonic values of Heavy Fuck Metal as it should be: big, brave, bombastic and loud enough to explode your skull.
Undoubtedly, MANOWAR confirmed their 1982 debut - Battle Hymns - that they were in a class of their own, and gave the metal scene, with the all-pervasive -Into Glory Ride of 1983, another jolting dose of heavy metal perfection. Known for its raw production and harsh aggression, the album was widely hailed as a masterpiece. Significantly, the band's dissatisfaction with the somewhat hectic and compromised production of their second album made sure that the creation of their next album was handled with even greater care than before. We are talking about MANOWAR and of course the result was never in question.
-Hail To England- was published in February 1984, just over six months after its predecessor, and under tremendous expectation, not least because at that time MANOWAR was known worldwide as a self-proclaimed guardian of a whole genre. Luckily, the new album was more than ready to blow people's heads off again.
