"There were so many fans who couldn't come to Dortmund, so we have adjusted our travel schedule to add a date to this first leg of our world tour so they will not have to wait until next year." said Joey DeMaio. "We found a great gig in the heart of Germany that will allow fans from all over the country to face The Lord Of Steel."

Manowar’s new studio album, The Lord Of Steel, was first released worldwide on June 16th, exclusively on iTunes and on the band’s own online store, The Kingdom Of Steel.
On the same date, Metal Hammer UK released a special edition of Metal Hammer #233, including the CD and a digital copy of the album with exclusive artwork. Check out the exclusive artwork below:
The Lord Of Steel CD will be released in retail stores from September 7th (dates may vary from territory to territory). The CD is available for worldwide shipping from The Kingdom Of Steel.
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 was mixed and mastered at the legendary Wisseloord Studios by long-time collaborators mixing engineer Ronald Prent and two-time Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Darcy Proper.
