A sneak peek into the mixing of “Kingdom Come MMXIV” from “Kings Of Metal MMXIV”, a newly recorded special version celebrating the 25th anniversary of MANOWAR’s classic album “Kings Of Metal”, is available below.
The new recordings will feature guitarist Karl Logan’s and drummer Donnie Hamzik’s contributions, who, after having played these classic hymns many times live, will now have the opportunity to add to their legacy by including their own signature sound and performance. The new album will also feature movie and theater legend Brian Blessed (“Hamlet”, “Flash Gordon”) narrating “The Warrior’s Prayer MMXIV”.
The release of “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” is scheduled for spring 2014 and will be followed by an anniversary tour that will see MANOWAR perform the full “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” album along with their other classic metal hymns in a completely new stage production.
MANOWAR released highlights of its “The Lord Of Steel World Tour” on a live EP, featuring performances from the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Russia and Sweden. The disc was mixed and mastered at MANOWAR’s own studios Hell and Haus Wahnfried by Joey DeMaio personally with longtime MANOWAR engineer Dirk Kloiber.
“The Lord Of Steel Live” was released digitally as an iTunes exclusive worldwide on July 9, and was made available on CD in retail and through TheKingdomOfSteel.com on August 16.
