The Triumph of Steel
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 and Ecstasy in Eight Parts" is the longest and most complex Manowar song, an anticipation of a concept album, never accomplished. Because of its Homeric content, "Achilles and Ecstasy in Eight Parts" has attracted the attention of a group of scholars at Bologna University in Italy. Mrs. Eleonora Cavallini, Professor in Classics, has written about this song: "Joey DeMaio’s lyrics imply a careful and scrupulous reading of the Iliad; the songwriter has focused his attention on the crucial fight between Hector and Achilles, has paraphrased some passages of the poem adapting them to the melodic structure with a certain fluency and reinterpreting them, but never altering or upsetting Homer’s storyline. The purpose of the lyrics is to evoke some characteristic Homeric sceneries: the raging storm of the battle, the barbaric, ferocious exultance of the winner, the grief and anguish of the warrior who feels death impending over him.
The whole action hinges upon Hector and Achilles, who are represented as specular characters, divided by an irreducible hatred and yet destined to share a similar destiny. Both are caught in the moment of the greatest exaltation, as they savagely rejoice for the blood of their killed enemies, but in the one of the extreme pain, when the daemon of war pounces on them. Furthermore, differently than in the irreverent and iconoclastic movie Troy, in "Achilles and Ecstasy in Eight Parts", the divine is a constant and ineluctable presence, determining human destinies with inscrutable and steely will, despite the generic reference to'the gods', the real master of human lives is Zeus, the only God to whom both Hector and Achilles address their prayers" All songs written by Joey DeMaio except where noted.
