Are Helloween and/or manowar decent??

Recommended Posts

Well, who can tell me before I spend my recent loan payment on wasted music? I aint heard anything by either of them, but know they are german and helloween had a pumpkin man, Manowar were like dungeons and dragons stuff? Ha, that's when music was amazing. :band::devil::headbang:

Hahahaha, i have a friend in Germany who is a big manowar fan (that should tell you their quality) they are funny though in a loud kinda way. about a million germans go to all their gigs, not my thing, but they cant be all that bad.

Helloween are alright, but I'd recommend Gamma Ray (Kai Hansen's subsequent project) instea - Land Of The Free and No World Order are two awesome albums.

I am less keen on Manowar. I say you should check out Dragonforce instead - speed metal at it's finest. :D

i saw no to Manowar, FAR too cheesey - not heavy enough and speedy enough for me!! Kinda like Bon Jovi Metal lol...

Helloween are awesome (on Keeper of the Seven Keys PT.II anyway) <-- get that album NOW.

Gamma Ray are much better... real power metal there, No World Order is a great place to start but also as Scorge said you can'[t go Wrong with most of the stuff on Land of the Free.

Dragonforce, a league of their own. If you don't know these guys - get Sonic Firestorm, then Valley of the Damned and thank us.

If you do know them and missed them in Glasgow... tut tut tut!! It was awesome (tough luck Steveo HAHAHAHA)

Ok cool. I have been offered much info on what's apparently cool music. Will check out all these bands, I'm fairly into cheesey stuff, if maiden are chessy. Actually, what does chessy mean oin this context? Cliched? As in leather, mullets, 'satanic' lyrics, screaming vocals and crazy guitar solos?

Well kinda cheesey in the guitar riffs and synths and lyrics really! Keeper of the Seven Keys pt.II is the only album of there's I'd buy though...

Nah Part 1 is also good. Future World is a top notch song!

Rhapsody own them all. Symphony of Enchanted Lands owns. "FOR THE KING, FOR THE LAND, FOR THE MOUNTAINS!!!!"

oh, and also, The Reign of Terror!!! check out the song "Save Me" for MAD as fuck soloing and awesome riffage.

Manowar are nothing like Gwar.

GWAR fuckin destroy!

as for Battle Hymn, im sure I saw a knighting ceremony which was done with that as the soundtrack. am I thinking of the right song??

you have the knighting ceremony 'hymn' wrong, it was in fact the anthemic 'the crown and the ring(lament of the kings)'.we should have been arrested that night, or lynched.
