Manowar: The Fight Game

Howard Johnson, Kerrang!, 25 June 1987

THOSE JOLLY nice chaps from Manowar gave me a credit on their spanking new Fighting The World album as one of 'the faithful', which is top hole indeed. But I have to confess that at some points along this rough-shod, craggy ride, my faith in the boyz with the Noo Yawk noize has occasionally faltered. It would have taken a man with a resolve of steel and no mere mortal such as myself not to have felt the odd tinge of doubt floating in there. After all, hadn't Manowar been with more labels in their comparatively short career than most bands see in a lifetime? Hadn't the four been virtually touring recluses, never seen on any of the major treks? Hadn't it been two years since the Sign Of The Hammer album was released?
