MANOWAR: 'Die For Metal' Video Posted Online

March 26, 2007

MANOWAR's video for the song "Die for Metal" has been posted online at YouTube. Portions of the clip were filmed on February 24, 2007 in Bochum, Germany, during the release party for the band's new album, "Gods of War". Besides the fans, the video stars well-known German actor Tim Sander.

"Die for Metal" comes off MANOWAR's tenth full-length album, "Gods of War", which was released on February 23 in Germany (February 26 for the rest of Europe and April 3 for the USA/Canada).

An e-card for "Gods of War" has been made available at this location. The e-card contains the new album cover art, background information, new band pictures, and cool downloads.

"Gods of War" is MANOWAR's first entry in a cycle of concept albums; each a tribute to a different war god. Opening with the epic piece "Overture to the Hymn of the Immortal Warriors", the tone is set for an album beyond anything MANOWAR has done before. This album honors Odin — almighty father of the Norse gods — and details the history and exploits of this storied character. His power and wisdom were unmatched among the gods and he is paid tribute with human sacrifice on the battlefield, as heard in the song "The Sons of Odin", the stomping title track "Gods of War" and the storytelling "The Blood of Odin".

Besides the normal jewel-case version, "Gods of War" is also being released as a limited edition in an embossed metal slipcase containing a high grade mediabook bound in leather. Furthermore, this limited edition features a bonus DVD with unreleased material detailing the making of this album and some special behind-the-scenes footage. A double-vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve is also available.
