Latin Golden Hits. Film Music. Rossini: Overtures. Music from Great Shakespeare Films. Songs of Christmas, Vol. The World's Greatest Waltzes. Navidad Sinfonica. Both are quite solid, with the former being excellent and the latter merely good. The only song that really matches the tempo of Battle Cry is the title track, which is easily one of the best songs on the album, with the headbangable main riff and catchy chorus.
Overall, despite a bit of filler, the album is quite strong, and while not Omen's best, it can still hold its own with most other USPM albums. Highly recommended. Omen was one of those reliable bands who fleshed out the Metal Blade Records roster in the early to mid 80s. You could not go wrong with the band's first three albums, all positive uses of the Maiden influence, taking the lessons taught by that band and applying them to a heavier style with J.
Kimball's distinct, deep vocals. Until they released the questionable, somber though not bad hard rock record Escape to Nowhere, they were really on top of their game. Warning of Danger was their 2nd album, and a melodic juggernaught with a powerful bottom end, each track a thundering hymn with a soaring chorus. The title track is perhaps the most distinct, and a great choice to open the album. Kimball's vocals were really like no other, and the rhythm guitars flow into the explosive chorus, with some great drumming from Steve Wittig.
Other memorable cuts include "Don't Fear the Night", with its balladic intro, "Termination", which is the heaviest track on the album, and the rousing "Red Horizon". The remainder of the tracks are at the least consistent, there is nothing to scoff at.
The mix is even, in Maiden fashion you can hear the bass pummeling clearly and though Kimball stands out the most, the drums and guitars are fairly loud. The lyrics are average, nothing I'd want to quote. Overall, the album is the same quality as their debut Battle Cry, but I'd give that one a slight edge out of sheer nostalgia. If you don't know Omen, then you're really missing out, and you shouldn't call yourself a metalhead until you've heard their first two albums.

Other locations included Lake Forest Academy 's campus, which was used as the Thorn Mansion, the Northwestern Military and Naval Academy 's Geneva Lake campus, which was used for the military academy, with real Geneva Lake students portraying most of the academy cadets, and the Murphy Estate on Catfish Lake in Eagle River, Wisconsin for the skating scene, with local children playing the skaters.
The Field Museum of Natural History , depicting the Thorn Museum, was also used in several scenes throughout the film, including some of its final minutes. The film received mixed reviews. The site's consensus states: " Damien dishes out ghoulish scares and a biblical body count to generate some morbid fun, but this repetitious sequel lacks the sophistication of its predecessor. Vincent Canby of The New York Times wrote, "Perhaps my resistance has given out but 'Damien—Omen II,' though it's as foolish as the first film, is rather more fun to watch and sometimes very stylish-looking.
Also, the commotion the kid inspires this time is not particularly frightening. The result is an inferior copy rather than a narrative continuation. It's a hoot instead of a scream. Its deaths are frequent and exceedingly graphic, but you wait for them as for the acts on a variety bill. The connective tissue is frailer this time, and there is almost no accumulation of suspense. It was cheaper, therefore, to re-record in the UK than pay the orchestra double in the US.
The liner notes also explain that some of the soundtrack's pieces have been re-written slightly or even merged for the album re-recording. The audio quality of these UK-recorded album tracks also sounds noticeably more dynamic. Some sections of the film's soundtrack — the tapes of which were thought lost for many years — were discovered to have warped in storage and have noticeable and uncorrectable flaws.
The film soundtrack is listed from track 11 onwards. The film was released on videocassette during the s and s.
