Magic Circle Festival To Be Held Annually

At last weekend's (July 6-7) Magic Circle Festival in Bad Arolsen, Germany, bassist Joey DeMaio of MANOWAR — who organized the event — reportedly announced that the festival will be held annually from now on. On the first day of next year's gathering, MANOWAR will sign as much stuff as they can and will give away "thousands" of free beers and copies of their new single as well as four custom-built chopper bikes, each belonging to one of the bandmembers. On top of that, MANOWAR will apparently play their first six albums in their entirety, from "Battle Hymns" to "Kings of Metal".

In addition to different sets by MANOWAR on each day, this year's Magic Circle Festival featured performances by GAMMA RAY, MAJESTY, HOLYHELL, MOB RULES, STORMWARRIOR, MESSIAH'S KISS, DAVID SHANKLE GROUP, LION'S SHARE, HEAVENLY, IMPERIA and SAIDIAN.

It's cool to know that the "Kings of Kings" have a Festive Concert Event "Magic Circle Festival" to highlight not only theirselves but their guests/many great bands that will showcase their majestic music in all it's fine glory. Congratulations to the mighty Kings of Meta/Kings of Kings MANOWAR on this much hard earned journey of theirs for they worked their buns off for it! It would be cool to see one day the Manowar "Magic Circle Fest" to hit the USA shores (their Home Country, America) one day in the near future but it the mean time it's glorious to know that it will be highlighted Annually in the Ancient rims of EUROPE. That is mighty cool...'and their newest recording Manowar "Gods of War" is an pretty cool Cd, great Concept album nicely rooted. Even though I like "Warriors of the World" more and their earlier Classic works like "Battle Hymn" etc.,. this one is nicely grounded as well. Cheers and once again, congratulations to MANOWAR.
