80’s Blast::Manowar

(anyone who thinks otherwise can go jump in Lake Minnetonka)


“In 1984 the band was included in the Guinness Book of World Records for delivering the loudest performance, a record which they have since broken on 2 occasions. They also hold the world record for the longest heavy metal concert after playing for 5 hours and 1 minute in Bulgaria (at Kavarna Rock Fest) in 2008.”

Another “workout” song…

“In 2002, six years after the last studio album, Manowar released the Warriors of the World album. Warriors of the World presented a sound somewhat renewed in style, but maintained the usual energy and power. The most famous tracks from the album became ‘Warriors of the World United’, ‘House of Death’ and ‘Call to Arms’, in addition to Puccini’s aria ‘Nessun Dorma‘ (from Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot), covered in honor of the Italian fans and sung live (by Eric Adams) for the first time in a concert in Milan (1999).”
