Label: Magic Circle Music
Release Date: 10/24/2006
Genre: Heavy Metal
Manowar is one of the bands who will always do things in a big way because when it came to Metal that is very simply how they always did it. Why change the process when it came to releasing a new single on the millions of fans that they have built in their army over the years. Their new song “The Sons Of Odin” comes to the world on a very special edition CD/DVD EP. Slip cased with a fold out poster inside the Manowar acolyte is treated to live versions of two of their songs as well as an instrumental and two immortal editions of the new material. It also includes a DVD which will be fun for many of the fans because it includes a full documentary on the Manowar Fan Convention which finds the organizer describing how it all went down. There is a lot of commentary footage and photos on what the rest of us missed at this event and I am sure this will be something that continues going forward since Manowar is very dedicated to their fan base legions and their overall loyalty. The new songs are exactly what you would expect from the band, epic in scale and scope as well as nice and heavy. Thundering music and glass-breaking vocal lines (a 5.1 surround sound mix is also featured on the DVD). We also get a sneak peak of the double live DVD that is coming soon and some rehearsal footage. The concert film will show the group at work during their “Demons, Dragons & Warriors World Tour” and it should be a good one. Start polishing that sword, Manowar is coming.
