MANOWAR To Headline Next Year's GODS OF METAL Festival

MANOWAR — the only band to have headlined Italy's Gods Of Metal festival three times — have announced that they will make their fourth headlining appearance at next year's edition of the festival on Saturday, June 9, 2007. Along with MANOWAR will be special guests RHAPSODY and HOLYHELL, who will be on the road together as part of the Demons, Dragons & Warriors World Tour.

MANOWAR were forced to reschedule some of their previously announced European dates earlier in the year due to an unfortunate accident involving MANOWAR guitarist Karl Logan. "Our first concern was to be sure that Karl was in good condition," MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio said at the time. "As soon as we were certain Karl would be able to play again in the near future, we wanted to give our fans as much information as possible to keep them abreast of plans for the tour."

Prior to Logan's accident, MANOWAR were scheduled to release a brand new single, "The Sons of Odin", this past February.

MANOWAR have sold over eight million records worldwide. The last studio album "Warriors of the World" was a critically acclaimed chart-topper in Europe, reaching gold status in Germany.

The upcoming MANOWAR album will be released on the band's own label, Magic Circle Music.
