GODS OF WAR
MANOWAR is a band that has set standards, broken records and won great accolades. During its storied career and elected by their worldwide fans as the "Kings Of Metal", the band has constantly redefined heavy metal by combining peerless musicianship and song writing with their undeniable commitment to true metal and their devoted fans. The band has always made the solemn pledge to create original music that is louder than hell and stronger than steel. The long standing lineup of vocalist Eric Adams, bassist Joey DeMaio, guitarist Karl Logan and drummer Scott Columbus is truly a force to be reckoned with in the studio and on stage alike and was instrumental in creating the genres of power metal and true metal.
As MANOWAR now prepares to unveil their tenth studio album, expectations from fans are high as ever and MANOWAR is happy to accept that challenge. The new album GODS OF WAR is MANOWAR’s first entry in a cycle of concept albums; each a tribute to a different war god. Opening with the booming pipe organ piece “Overture To The Hymn Of The Immortal Warriors”, an epic tone is set for an album beyond anything MANOWAR has done before. This album honors Odin - almighty father of the Norse gods - and details the history and exploits of this storied character. His power and wisdom were unmatched among the gods and he was paid tribute with human sacrifice on the battlefield, as heard on the song “The Sons Of Odin”, the stomping title track “Gods Of War” or the tale telling “The Blood Of Odin”.
GODS OF WAR will be an ongoing project that will test MANOWAR’S mettle and bring out the greatest of their musical attributes by utilizing both epic song structures and dramatic narratives. Much like within Ragnarok -the final battle at the end of the world - when MANOWAR is finished composing this epic saga, the earth will shake, the walls will crumble and only true fans of metal will remain standing, heads held high, with the triumphant glimmer of a battle well-fought in their eyes.
Again GODS OF WAR features brand new artwork by known fantasy artist Ken Kelly, grand and epic production beyond any boundaries and a mix done by one of the world’s most wanted engineers Ronald Prent.
In their career MANOWAR has released 9 studio albums, two live albums and 5 DVDs with sales over nine million records worldwide. The last studio album "Warriors Of The World" was a critically-acclaimed chart topper throughout the world, reaching gold status in Germany.
