Post Virgin Steele vs Manowar
Seeing as how Manowar quite ably beat Accept at their best, I'd hope Virgin Steele might make for a stronger showdown. Manowar's early material crushes Virgin Steele with ease even though they are a lot closer than one thinks, many of Manowar's hard rock moments are quite analogous if not less cheesy than Virgin Steele. It took Virgin Steele a while to find their sound and this is long after Manowar had become redundant, but from the period of 93 to 2000 Virgin Steele recorded some of the best epic power metal I've ever heard. Who wins out in the end the magnificent compositions and musicianship of nineties Virgin Steele, or the heartfelt epics of Manowar in their prime?

Purely for their 80's work, Manowar.

They do indeed.

I'll be interested to see PK weigh in here.

VS for me, though I love both bands, because I think they have the greater consistency within and between albums. Not really interested in anything they did before Marriage, but from then onwards they've put out some really exceptional albums with strong themes and a lot of ambition. Classic Manowar have better individual songs, but VS pip it for the strength of their albums and consistency of their vision. Their present state is a lot better too.

David and Joey are very similar, actually - both strong-willed and clearly focussed with a strong vision of what the band is, but David uses his powers for good.
