Manowar: The Triumph of Steel (2xLP) (Translucent Red Vinyl – limited to 1500 copies)

$40.99

The Triumph of Steel is the seventh studio album by the American heavy metal band Manowar, released in 1992. It is the only Manowar album to feature guitarist David Shankle and drummer Kenny Earl “Rhino” Edwards. Cover art by Ken Kelly.

“Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts” is the longest (28 minutes and 38 seconds) and most complex Manowar song, and probably an anticipation of a concept album that was never accomplished. Because of its Homeric content, “Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts” has recently attracted the attention of a group of scholars at Bologna University in Italy.
