MANOWAR To Return To The Studio In April

According to a posting on MANOWAR's official web site, the band is scheduled to return to the studio in April, presumably to resume work on its long-awaited new album, "Hammer Of The Gods".

MANOWAR bassist and producer Joey DeMaio previously stated about the status of the songwriting and recording sessions for "Hammer Of The Gods", "The truth is this: [original MANOWAR drummer] Donnie Hamzik is officially back in the band, and that changed everything for us. So all the songs that were written have been completely fucking thrown out, completely ditched — gone, never to be heard from again. The writing has changed because Donnie's back in the band and he's burning like a mad motherfucking demon on drums. So this album is gonna basically sound like I told you before — like somebody put gasoline on your fucking balls and lit it. So it'll be worth the fucking wait, 'cause when it comes, it's coming back."

"Hammer Of The Gods" was previously described as the first installment of "The Asgard Saga", the band's unique multimedia fantasy adventure with best-selling author Wolfgang Hohlbein.

In other news, MANOWAR's shows at Trädgår'n in Gothenburg, Sweden on March 29 and March 30 are officially sold out. Those who waited and missed the opportunity to buy a ticket now have another chance: MANOWAR has just confirmed a third show at Trädgår'n on Thursday, March 31. Tickets are on sale at Ticnet.se.

In addition to performing MANOWAR classics, the band will play its debut album, 1982's "Battle Hymns", in its entirety.

MANOWAR recently decided that its fans deserved to hear the songs from "Battle Hymns" with the massive sound and production that has become the group's signature over recent years and records.

"Battle Hymns 2011" features two never-before-released live versions of "Death Tone" and "Fast Taker" recorded during the band's very first concerts in 1982. These are the rarest bonus materials ever released to date in MANOWAR's career.
