Manowar - The Dawn of Battle (Single)

7/10

This CD-single contains "Call to Arms," one of the better songs off of "Warriors of the World," as well as two non-album tracks. The title track is a great thrashy number that's somewhat mitigated by a lame "symphonic" section in the middle that's not very good, while "I Believe" has some of those patriotic overtones that marred some of the songs of "Warriors," but it's not quite as pronounced. Both of the non-album tracks would've been fine on the album, and their inclusion would've bumped my rating up from a 5 to a 6; I'm not sure why they were relegated to B-sides.
