"Manowar! The name is known amung the heavy metal community as a beacon of true heavy metal. They are known as the band who just doesn't care about anything but their Music, Their Women, and their Harleys. Upon buying this video I must say that I was excited. (After all... this is Manowar we are talking about here) I've been a fan of them since the days i first heard the words Hail and Kill come from (Lead Singer) Eric's mouth. Needless to say the video kinda left me with a sour taste in my mouth. Here I was expecting this full live concert and it came off to me as they were more worried about having sex with women than they were about the music. Most of the live footage isn't really live.. it's just video from a show synched up with their Hell on Stage cd... There were some good points though... The end of the video showed about 4 (REALLY) live songs. and a great version of "Carry On" I don't know the lenth of this video but it has to break the 2 hour mark. I found that about an hour and a half into this video i found myself saying "Ok enough with the naked women (I can't believe i'm saying this) and let's hear some blazing heavy metal" This video is good.. and it's a must have for any Manowar fan.. but if you are not a fan of the band... and want a first impression of Manowar.... BUY A CD. Thanks for reading Hellion"
The Ultimate Manowar Experience

""Hell on Earth - Part I" is not just a concert or video compilation, it is so much more than that. This is a celebration, of Manowar, of the music and of the fans, three entities that are ONE, united in a single cause. In this video, we see Manowar joining together to spread their creed of power and might throughout the world. On-Stage, BackStage, on the Tour bus, in the hotel rooms and with the fans..its all here. Obviously, there are lots of tasty numbers of the Kings of Metal belting it out on stage but the essence of this tape is for the band to take their fans along with them on their sacred ride. It is extremely vital for any Manowar fan to acquire this tape as quickly as possible."
Long-awaited Home Video from the Kings of Metal

"For Fans of the controversial Heavy Metal band, this homevideo will be the ultimate Manowar experience. Much like other Manowar products, this video meets not only the rigorous quality standards (picture and sound) that the band itself endorses - it's also specifically made for the true fans of the band. While other bands often have little or no control regarding the content and sound of homevideos, Manowar was involved in the production process throughout - and it shows! The video features: Karl Logan joins Manowar, Scott Columbus returns to Manowar, Orchestra Recording Session, The Making of Return of the Warlord, Manowar's first tour of South America, New Years Eve in Cleveland Ohio 96/97, Midwinter Motorcycle Madness, The Entire Hell on Wheels Tour, Gods of Metal Milan Italy 97, Full Force 97 and lots more! Go out and get it!"

"In all honesty,this has to be the best metal/rock documentary video I've seen in sometime.Drummer Scott Columbus returns and new guitarist Karl Logan is showcased,PLENTY in this two-hour video diary.Plus,'Hell On...' held my full attention all the way through.Few music videos can do that.Plenty of extensive partying,bare [...],cursing and NO censor blocks.Now,that's what I call a REAL metal video.Gets really good in the second half.I cracked up at the snippet of a roadie dipping another roadie's hand in warm water while he was sleeping.Loved the 'on tour' clips of the band's insane gigs that took place in Germany,Brazil,Italy,Belgium,Hungary,Switzerland and Spain.Venues appear to be those five-to-seven thousand seaters.To bad Manowar isn't able to play arenas like that in the states.Apparently,these halls require extended ramps to make it possible for the band members to enter the stage on their motorcycles(Judas Priest,eat your heart out!).Their large outdoor festival in Austria has to be seen to be believed.Thoroughly enjoyed seeing live performances of the Manowar classics "Courage",the group's namesake "Manowar","The Power",the head-riveting "Kill With Power","Hail And Kill",plus the video for "Return Of The Warlord".A must-have for all Manowar fans,old or new.Manowar rules!!"
