Manowar Posts Q & A On New Album

New York true metal band Manowar posted a question and answer interview responding to frequently asked fan questions relating the long awaited follow up to the 2007 release "Gods Of War." It appears the yet untitled album will premiere on June 21, 2012 at the Gods of Metal festival in Italy.

The posting reads as follows:

With MANOWAR non-stop in the studio working on the new record it is not easy to get a hold of them these days. The band took some time during a brief recording break to answer some frequently asked fan questions.

Q: How are MANOWAR doing?

Donnie: We’re doing great! We are having a blast in the studio, I am really happy with my drum sound and with these new songs I can really stretch out and burn.

Joey: Couldn’t be better. We are still so energized from the live shows last year that you can feel this killer energy in the studio coming out of the speakers. It’s amazing.

Q: Why haven't we heard more about the album on Facebook or on your website yet?

Eric: We've simply been so concentrated on working on the material that we literally couldn't be stopped. When you're in the middle of a creative process, or recording, there is simply no good time to take a break.

Q: What is the status on the album?

Joey: We are extremely critical of the songs in every step; I have said before that most of the stuff we reject other bands would consider finished. Finally now we are recording. And then the album goes into mixing and mastering.

Q: When will the album come out?

Karl: We will celebrate the world premiere at Gods Of Metal, Italy on June 21st. This will be our fourth headlining performance there - more than any other band ever - and the perfect place for our album premiere and return to Italy after 10 years!

Q: What can the fans expect of this new MANOWAR album?

Joey: Everything you have ever come to know and love about MANOWAR songs: Face-melting hymns of unity; Crushing and Pounding, Hard and Heavy - basically more of everything, and of course Louder!

Q: What will the title of the album be?

Joey: I would tell you but then I would have to kill you.

Q: Will the album cover feature art from the great Ken Kelly again?

Joey: Are MANOWAR fans the strongest in THE WORLD? Of course! Ken is the man! His paintings capture the spirit of our music perfectly.

New Album? Think that before a new album will be released, 2-3 DVDs will be released. After that all DVDs in BlueRay. Manowar seems to become very Gay!
