Manowar Reveals "Gods of War" Themes and "The Sons Of Odin" EP Artwork

In MANOWAR news, some details have been revealed about the new full-length album “Gods Of War”, which will be released in mid to late January of 2007.

MANOWAR has always used warrior imagery that takes the listener back to legendary times. These themes have included the dark ages, Greek mythology and Norse mythology. MANOWAR’s upcoming opus “Gods Of War” will feature Nordic themes as evidenced by the “ The Sons Of Odin” EP.

“Gods Of War” has evolved into a multi-part epic cycle which will include tributes to the Gods of Valhalla. Continuing MANOWAR’s mission to never stray from their heavy metal style, “Gods Of War” will present a new level of heaviness, intensity and brutality to the MANOWAR mythos. “With this kind of theme… when you are paying tribute to Odin, the God of War, country music or jazz would not create the appropriate mental imagery and would not do justice to the Father of the Gods himself,” says MANOWAR bassist and founder Joey DeMaio. “Heavy Metal is needed to tell this tale.”

Finally, also the new cover artwork for “The Sons Of Odin “ EP, by longtime MANOWAR collaborator Ken Kelly, has been revealed: "The Sons Of Odin" EP - Jewel Case and "The Sons Of Odin" EP - Immortal Edition Package

Release dates for “The Sons Of Odin “ EP follow:

October 6, 2006 ( Germany )
October 9, 2006 ( Europe )
October 24, 2006 ( USA )
