Genre: Heavy Metal
If you follow this blog to any extent whatsoever, you know that I'm a die-hard Manilla Road fan. Thus, I think it's time I post another one of their albums. While Gates of Fire is my overall favourite 'Road album, this one is generally considered to be their 'classic' release. It's no wonder, either - the songs are catchy, the riffs rule, the atmosphere is epic, and Mark "the Shark" Shelton's vocals make their first appearance in the unique style that he's known for on all their subsequent albums. As I always say, there's not much I can write that hasn't already been said about such a classic album. Just know that if you're a fan of awesome, unique, epic old-school heavy metal, this is required listening that is essential to your collection.
For fans of Omen, Cirith Ungol, and Ironsword.
