And that’s it.
Manowar’s new studio album, called The Lord Of Steel, will be released all over the world on October 19.
It’s very homo-erotic.
“Manowar have always dared to do things differently,” says the band’s Joey DeMaio. “You have to look at these two versions like a movie that comes out in alternate versions; a Director’s Cut or alternate endings or stories even told from different perspectives.
“For those of you who enjoyed the first taste of The Lord Of Steel, meaning the Metal Hammer version, I can tell you that the forthcoming Lord Of Steel release on Magic Circle Entertainment will be even more unique and yes, more brutal.
“When you have to make room for literally hundreds of other instruments such as orchestras, choirs, marching armies on ‘Gods Of War,’ for example, you have to create sonic space for that. The fewer instruments you have the louder they can be individually,” he adds. “As an artist you want to give your audience new experiences. This is not ‘elevator music.’ This is an album that hits you hard right between the eyes and does not let up.”
I guess the Manowar dudes don’t realize we’re all laughing at them, and not with them.
