  MANOWAR PERFORM TITLE SONG FOR THE AFTER DARK ACTION FILM EL GRINGO
8th May 2012

manowar



Manowar and After Dark Films announced today that a track from the new, forthcoming Manowar album will be the theme song for the After Dark Action franchise film, El Gringo, an action Western starring Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2, The Bourne Ultimatum), Christian Slater and Yvette Yates (Without Men).

After Dark Action will showcase El Gringo and four other original, adrenaline-pumping films theatrically as a commercial film festival in US markets nationwide and on VOD (Video On Demand) on May 11. Directed by Eduardo Rodriguez (Stash House) and written by Jonathan W. Stokes, El Gringo is about The Man who crosses into Mexico with a satchel of $2,000,000 cash, a bloody past and a plan to live out his remaining days on a beach.

Instead, he gets stuck waiting for a bus in El Fronteras, a sleepy desert town that's so uninviting that – forget about the ocean – he can hardly find a glass of water. Then, word of his money spreads to the underworld.

Under sudden attack from corrupt cops, gangsters, and desperados, The Man must push back his retirement plans, lock and load and save sleepy El Fronteras through a dizzying display of spectacular gunfights.

El Gringo marks the first time Manowar have written a song specifically for a movie. The song depicts the struggle of a hero torn between his moral code and financial gain, and the challenge of being true to oneself and the real values in life - a recurring theme in Manowar's music.

The band recently posted the complete version of the song online and here it is.



"Everyone loves action movies! Our music, along with ass-kicking visuals and a great story, are a perfect match, not to mention a chance to actually see the music come alive on screen," said Manowar bassist and composer Joey DeMaio. "El Gringo has been a great experience, the team at After Dark Films has been a pleasure to work with, and we are ready for more!" he continued.

"We are thrilled to have Manowar as a creative collaborator on El Gringo," said Courtney Solomon, a producer on the film, as well as the company owner and CEO of After Dark Films. "The band really invested their talent and energy into the project and we can't wait to share their work with action audiences everywhere."

The new Manowar album featuring the song 'El Gringo' and many other songs in the vein of the band's hit record 'Warriors Of The World' and the classical Manowar hymns will celebrate its world premiere and digital pre-release in June 2012.

Manowar will be headlining several European festivals this summer, celebrating their new album and the 10th anniversary of one of their most popular records, 'Warriors Of The World'.

Upcoming Manowar headlining tour dates:

Sat, June 16, 2012 – Ost Fest – Bucharest, Romania
Thu, June 21, 2012 – Gods Of Metal – Milan, Italy
Fri, July 6, 2012 – Getaway Rock Festival – Gävle, Sweden
Mon, July 9, 2012 – Dortmunder Music Week Festival – Dortmund, Germany


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.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
