MANOWAR SIGN OF THE HAMMER reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

AtomicCrimsonRush
I used to love thrashing this thing during the 80s and I memorised many of the songs simply because I played it to death. It really has some of the best Manowar tracks especially on side 2 the side that rarely left my turntable on the days of vinyl.

Regretfully most of my metal vinyl has gone but I still remember Sign of the Hammer "be my guide, the spell has been lifted" it is in my brain forever. Loved those manic riffs too. 'The Oath' and 'Thunderpick' have some resonance with my memory too but I will never forget 'Guyana (Cult of the Damned)' with its haunting lyrics; "I thank you for the cool aid Reverend Jim." I knew every riff especially as it builds to the big riff in the verses. I did not know at the time what it was about but have since learnt it was focussing on the Jim Jonestown Massacre. The lyrics have even more power with that knowledge. The intro to the song is kind of a Latin rhythm that works well, and the drum pounding is incredible, like a march to the gallows, or a march along the boardwalk to the vats of poison the cultists eventually took.

This is a strong Manowar and perhaps one of their last great releases, still powerful and riff heavy, with glorious vocals throughout, and then they moved into a more mainstream sound.
Warthur
It's a rare Manowar album that doesn't offer even a hint of oiled-up man-titty on the cover, but don't let Sign of the Hammer fool you - it isn't Manowar's NSBM album. Instead, it's a rip-roaring grab-bag of excellence from beginning to end, the Manowar crew proving that they can be every bit as epic and technically proficient (see for instance Guyana - Cult of the Damned) as those dudes in Iron Maiden. This is traditional heavy metal which will tickle the fancy of anyone who likes cheesy lyrical themes, but if you don't like glam metal or power metal, don't worry - this slice of 80s metal is traditional through and through, and loud as hell with it. It's a real eye-opener for me, that's for sure, and I won't be underestimating Manowar again after this.
