Couldn't' t tell you which of their releases is my favorite. I know the love affair ended after ...And Justice For All.
The debut albums could well be my favorite, because it came out of nowhere and shocked the world.There was nothing like it before it came out. Hints and glimpses from The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal of course, but nothing like Kill 'Em All.
Iron Maiden ~ Run To The Hills/Total Eclipse 7" 45rpm
1982 EMI -5263
Angel Witch ~ Self Titled Debut LP
1980 Bronze Records BRON 532
Motorhead ~ Motorhead/City Kids
Motorhead's first single, released in 1977. Reissued in 1979 on blue vinyl.
Big Beat Records NS 13 7" 45rpm
Only copy I've ever come across. Grabbed it when I saw it. Fortunately it's in mint/near mint condition.
All of the Manowar from Sign of the Hammer back is excellent stuff. I lost my enthusiasm for their material after this album. Wondering if I should revisit post SOTH material?
Merch slip is a nice little bonus!
Blessed Death - Kill Or Be Killed
1986 - Roadrunner - RR 9715
SOD : Stormtroopers of Death - Speak English or Die

(No offense intended considering the politically incorrect nature of this title/lyrics in today's society)
Looks like you've been in my record crates!
When I bought "Fighting The World" I could see the wheels beginning to fall off. With "Kings of Metal" I gave up and stopped buying Manowar. I REALLY need to revisit those two albums and see if I might like them better now. Love "Sign of the Hammer", especially the closing track, Guyana: Cult of the Damned. Starting a song with a dying, garbled voice speaking, "Thank you for the Kool-Aid, Reverend Jim" is about as cold and harsh as anything I've ever heard.
At this point, I'm really wishing I hadn't gotten it autographed. Buddy of mine got backstage and had all but Cliff Burton scrawl out sig's with a ball point pen. I'm thinking it probably detracts from the value of an album that could fetch $200- $300 on the market. Then again, it might add to the value. The only personalized sig was Hetfield's, you can see my name, "Frank" in large letters right under his pic. Lar's was funny, signed his name and added "Vodka Tour '84"...it was kind of prophetic that Cliff wasn't available to sign.
Based on some recent posts, I was kinda thinking the same thing.
Considering what your profile pic is, I suspect we share a few more records in other genres.
You've motivated me to listen to SOTH this weekend!!
Seem to be in a Metal mood tonight.

It kind of makes me sad that you felt the need to say that.
UK first press
This record always makes me think how awesome it must have been back in the days. Like "wow, that was great, now let's see if they can keep it up on Side 2"...
