There's a lot of Manowar stuff that I don't take seriously, but come on...how can anyone argue with 'Metal Daze' or 'Dark Avenger' or 'Kill With Power' or 'Gloves Of Metal'??? Big, raw, ballsy, epic metal...can't go wrong. You either surrender to the whole ridiculous machismo vibe or you don't. I say go with it. Cynicism is so boring. For the most part, Manowar are pure entertainment...but they've made some kick arse records too. Check out 'Into Glory Ride' for starters. Brilliant album.
*edit* Sorry to hear about your penis, by the way.
