Those who find Manowar too much should never listen to them, it's like saying the movie Conan is OTT, that's the point...nothing comic about it at all...just to mainstream people maybe...as Dio once sang "If you dont like R'n'R its too late now"...personally this is the only record I was disappointed by, to me it's too little...last track is the only 100% one but again too little too late & I hated the singles from it, radiotracks. But Defender is a good track always. But the others are too much of verse/chorus ones.

This is 50% good compared to Into Glory Ride which is their masterpiece.
They did some better ones after this

Manowar is always true to metal the bands faking it to make it were not
and that goes for every hair band to extreme metal band, it's easy to hear who are real.

At the time this came out metal was my religion.
You can never fake Metal.

Totally agree with markgugs' previous comment. This is a brilliant album but the Back On Black release is such a bad quality, sourced from the CD...

Such an awesome album, if you're into the ManOwaR cheese style of metal. Too bad it's a Back On Black release so tinny high-end treble sourced from a CD is what you're getting here. Find an original pressing from 1987 instead.

Absolute classic Manowar album. Brilliant in its lyrical cheesyness, over the top to the point of it being comic, and so very very very metal (one might even say that it is more metal than metal)! For example, the great big boom crash ending of drum rolls and mad guitars on the last track, aptly titled "Black Wind, Fire And Steel", is actually longer than the song itself. This release is overkilled in its "metal" intensity, and is absolutely brilliant because of it.
There is an interesting side to this release for anyone who likes experimenting with strange genres. Manowar are well known perfectionist freaks and as such the accuracy and timing of music is near perfect. What this means is that "Fighting The World" has many tracks that are perfectly suited for mixing into electronic music. This is quite ironic when you considering how utterly obsessed Manowar are with preserving their "pure" self-image of metaldom. So try it out.
