Manowar - Details On New Album Revealed


Manowar has started to give away parts of the CD cover for the upcoming new album Gods Of War, which is set to be released on February 23, 2007 in Germany (February 26 for the rest of Europe and April 3 for the USA/Canada).

Next to this first taste of what the album cover will look like, the band also gives away a bit more info about the CD - concept, including 2 more song-titles. 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 epic piece "Overture To The Hymn Of The Immortal Warriors", the 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 is paid tribute with human sacrifice on the battlefield, as heard in the song "The Sons Of Odin", the stomping title track "Gods Of War" and the storytelling "The Blood Of Odin".

Manowar will continue with revealing the cover in their upcoming E-Card, so keep an eye on www.manowar.com to make sure you don't miss anything!

Besides the normal jewel-case version, "Gods of War" will also be released as a limited edition in an embossed metal slipcase containing a high grade mediabook bound in leather. Furthermore, this limited edition will feature a bonus DVD with unreleased material detailing the making of this album and some special behind-the-scenes footage. A double-vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve will also be available.

Hell yeah, good to see they're still fighting for true metal. Wimps and posers, leave the hall!

I read this while tired and for a second I thought it said "Nanowar" and got all exited but it's only Manowar and they don't play good sounds anymore. Or ever.

You guys are all just upset that all the big name power metal bands released poor albums in 06. Hammerfall, Rhapsody, Blind Guardian . . . face it. The hall's getting a little worn. It makes me sad, but then I listen to Kamelot and feel better.

The fact that manowar have so many people that speak and care about them, either like them or hate them, gives a lot of value to the band.They are undoubtedly the fathers of epic metal.Hail to thee
