Manowar Comments On "Kings Of Metal MMXIV" Album Artwork

Manowar recently revealed the front cover of upcoming double album "Kings Of Metal MMXIV" (available below), an evolution of the original 1988 cover by Ken Kelly.

A new painting by Ken Kelly, featured on the back of the CD, will also be revealed soon. Manowar's Joey DeMaio comments:

"Ken has always been able to perfectly capture the essence of Manowar in his art. These covers, the two new ones and the one he created in 1988, visualize what Manowar, our music and our fans stand for! Just look at these paintings and the story they tell: People have tried to keep this warrior down, attacked him and attempted to destroy him. But he stood tall, no matter what! He fought for true metal in country after country. And he will continue the march and fight for his brothers and sisters all over the world, until all enemies of true metal have been crushed!"

"This collaboration has been an incredible experience once again," said Ken Kelly. "We didn't know where the journey would lead us. The art literally takes over and the music and the lyrics guide us. I truly believe the Manowar fans are going to love this series."

"Kings of Metal MMXIV" is a completely new recording, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of "Kings Of Metal," and is due out on February 28th, 2014 as a 2 Disc CD with two 24-page booklets.
