Sign of the Hammer
Released: Jan 1984
Label: Virgin Records
"All Men Play on 10" is the band's manifesto and arguably their most famous song, but "Thor (the Powerhead)" and "Guyana (Cult of the Damned)" are bona fide Manowar classics, and the whole album is an exhausting exercise in "not holding back," a phrase Joey DeMaio may actually put in the lyrics to every song. Although the dark years of hair-sprayed spandex-metal were not far off, it's interesting to note that even though Manowar's galloping fantasy metal would be out of step soon, years later their effect on modern extreme metal is obvious, while pop metal is often likened to a bad dream.
