Manilla Road has always been something of an enigma to me, particularly when it comes to their last 4 studio albums. Likewise, lyrically they’ve exhibited this sense of pagan historicism that is both passionate and intellectual, from stories of Atlantis to glorious endeavors by Vikings, Greeks and Romans alike. I’d go as far saying that Gates of Fire is (arguably) Manilla Road’s most epic album. For starters, the songs are longer than perhaps ever and very patiently paced, creating a genuinely epic atmosphere. You can find some of Sheldon’s longest solos here as well.

Gates of Fire", the band's 14th overall album (if I counted correctly), was originally released on CD by Battle Cry two years ago. High Roller Records is now proud to announce a very limited de-luxe vinyl issue of one of Manilla Road's best ever records. With artwork by Jowita Kaminska, "Gates of Fire" is a double album in gatefold sleeve including lyrics. The original Manilla Road folded back in 1990 after "The Courts of Chaos", only to return with a rather lacklustre comeback album in 2001 called "Atlantis rising". However, on their latest longplayer "Gates of Fire" Mark "The Shark" Shelton and his (new) boys truly show that they are back with a vengeance. The album was originally released on compact disc via Battle Cry on July 25th 2005.
