Shadow Kingdom Records has reissued the sophomore album "Metal" from legendary Wichita, KS heavy metal behemoth Manilla Road. "Metal" is a transition period for the band, one that saw them getting away from their progressive rock roots and moving more towards heavy metal - hence the title "Metal." There are some pivotal songs here and the production is very similar to their debut, "Invasion."

The artwork for the reissue is what the originally had in mind for the album, but due to some issues they released a more plain cover instead - which is now included on the back of the booklet. The choice of preferred cover is then left to the fan. Below is the tracklisting and cover art of the 1982 opus.

1. Enter the Warrior
2. Defender
3. Queen of the Black Coast
4. Metal
5. Out of Control With Rock n Roll
6. Cage of Mirrors
7. Far Side of the Sun
