  MANOWAR ANNOUNCE 'KINGS OF METAL 2014' RELEASE
29th July 2013

manowar kings of metal



Manowar have made the following announcement concerning the release of the 'Kings Of Metal 2014' album.

"Manowar's 'Kings Of Metal' album, a milestone in metal history, was first released on November 18th, 1988.

"Already a significant force with international success since their debut album 'Battle Hymns,' this release and the following 1989 'Kings Of Metal' world tour catapulted Manowar to a new sphere. Songs like 'Heart Of Steel,' 'Kings Of Metal,' 'Hail And Kill,' and 'Blood Of The Kings' became instant anthems and remain among the most demanded songs in concerts, celebrated not only by Manowar fans.

"In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Kings Of Metal, Manowar are currently in the studio, recording a brand new special version of the album: 'Kings Of Metal 2014.'

"The new rendition will honor the original as it’s inspiration, but with additional energy, fully utilizing the power of today’s technology and 25 years of experience, and it will contain new arrangements and changes that incorporate live performance elements added over the years. The album will feature additional bonus material and many other surprises.

"The new recording is only one component of the 'Kings Of Metal 2014' anniversary celebration. For this special occasion, Manowar will also open their vaults and reveal never-before-seen video footage, photos, behind-the-scene interviews and insight into the history of Manowar and the 'Kings Of Metal' era.

"For the new narration on 'The Warrior’s Prayer' the band will be joined by celebrated British actor Brian Blessed (Henry V, Macbeth). Mr Blessed is a renowned Shakespeare and character actor who has starred, among others, in Kenneth Brannagh's Henry V and Much Ado About Nothing, in King Lear and Oliver Stone's Alexander. Brian also has an affinity with Heavy Metal music. In June 2013 he received the Spirit of Hammer Award at Metal Hammer UK's Golden Gods Awards.

"The new recordings will also feature guitarist Karl Logan's and drummer Donnie Hamzik's contributions, who, after having played these classic hymns many times live, will now have the opportunity to add to their legacy by including their own signature sound and performance."

The release of 'Kings Of Metal 2014' is scheduled for the end of this year. 2014 will then see Manowar's anniversary tour, performing the full 'Kings Of Metal 2014' album along with other Metal hymns in a completely new stage production.





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.
