Used (cover/disc): NM/NM-.



The sixth full-length studio album by legendary American Epic Heavy/Power Metal band.
On their anthemic mission statement, "Kings Of Metal", Manowar once again proclaim their Metal superiority thusly: "Other bands play, Manowar kills"!
The twin sentiments of the band's Metal mastery and the majesty of medieval heroism in battle are doggedly repeated on their sixth full-length release. There aren't many surprises on the disc, with the possible exception of bassist Joey DeMaio's blinding 64th-note bass playing on a reworking of Russian classicist Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" entitled "Sting of the Bumblebee". Considered by some fans to be a classic of its own, the 1988 release might have a many ballads for Power Metal enthusiasts, brushing up on the genre's history. Besides their refreshingly totalistic loyalty to form, Manowar's most admirable trait is their prodigious Metal musicianship, but with so much slow, balladic material, "Kings of Metal" makes little use of the band's fundamental musical strengths.
The album was the last to feature guitarist and founding member Ross "The Boss" Friedman, who later went on to rejoin punk band The Dictators. Drummer Scott Columbus left the band after this album as well, but rejoined for 1996's “Louder Than Hell” and remained with the band until 2008.
“Kings Of Metal” is the most popular album in the history of the Manowar, which entered the list of "200 Best Rock Albums of All Time".
