TToS opens with a majestic twenty-eight minute Homeric epic (Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts) chronicling the fight between Hector and Achilles. It has a guitar solo, a piccolo bass solo, a drum solo and Eric Adams doing his warrior thing. It almost makes me wish I had a uterus, so that I could feel it shudder.
The remainder is split between aggressive and quiet but is always 100% Manowar.
It’s arguably the most adventurous album they ever made. It was also drummer Rhino’s only Manowar album; having it on his CV means he'll never be out of work.
Songs of Note: The Demon's Whip; Master of the Wind
