About The Lord Of Steel:
The Lord Of Steel, MANOWAR’s twelfth studio album, 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.
The Lord Of Steel features different mixes and mastering compared to the limited 'Hammer Edition', an additional new song - ‘The Kingdom Of Steel’ - and a 24-page booklet. The cover features a brand new epic illustration by fantasy icon Ken Kelly; outstanding not only in its overall might, but also through its unparalleled richness of detail.
“MANOWAR have always dared to do things differently. You have to look at these two versions like a movie that comes out in alternate versions; a Director’s Cut or alternate endings...” explained bassist Joey DeMaio.
Described by the press as “a brutal and unstoppable force of molten metal” and “flawlessly heavy” The Lord Of Steel is a raw-to-the-bone production, merging vintage elements with the trademark sound MANOWAR have developed over the years.
For this album MANOWAR have tapped into the world of action heroes and their stories, and have written their first song specifically for a Hollywood movie, ‘El Gringo’ and another one, ‘Expendable’, inspired by Sylvester Stallone’s action movie franchise ‘The Expendables’.
From the furious title track and the pumping ‘Black List’, to the power ballad ‘The Kingdom Of Steel’ and the Ennio Morricone homage ‘El Gringo’ - The Lord Of Steel is full of surprises.
