Manowar Reveals New Album "The Lord Of Steel" Details
Manowar's new studio album, "The Lord Of Steel," will first be released worldwide on June 16th, 2012 exclusively on iTunes and on the band’s own online store, The Kingdom Of Steel.
On the same date, Metal Hammer UK will release a special ‘Steel Edition’ of Metal Hammer #233, including the CD and a digital copy of the album. The following press release was also issued:
"The Lord Of Steel is blazing with pure power, untamed energy, and a sound as raw and wild as a force of nature. Track titles like Annihilation and Hail, Kill And Die! set the tone for a record that is packed with surprises.
"In contrast to the 2007 release Gods Of War, this new album is not a concept album, yet each song tells a different story, retaining the Manowar vision of righteousness, honor and everything Manowar fans have come to know and love."
Manowar fans should expect to have “their heads completely blown off” said Manowar bassist Joey DeMaio in a recent interview, and explained that “…this album is all about brutality and raw power!”
The album will be mixed and mastered at Wisseloord Studios by long-time collaborators mixing engineer Ronald Prent and two-time Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Darcy Proper.
Manowar has this time tapped into the world of action heroes and their stories, writing a song specifically for the movie "El Gringo," and another one, "Expendable," inspired by Sylvester Stallone’s action movie franchise "The Expendables."

Thu, June 21, 2012 – Gods Of Metal – Milan, Italy
