MANOWAR's influence in the rock music industry is undeniable. Since their inception they have established themselves as the irrefutable 'Kings Of Metal'. They are arguably the greatest heavy metal band of all time. Their impressive and sometimes audacious career is characterized by stellar musicianship, unparalleled song craftsmanship and sheer determination. To date the band has released thirteen studio and live albums, eight DVDs and numerous compilations, most of which have been certified gold and all of which have sold in excess of eight million units worldwide. With unrivaled conviction, and the courage to unflinchingly cut their own path as their guiding ethos, MANOWAR have left an indelible imprint on the Heavy Metal genre of music. And Battle Hymns is the album that started it all. In yet another brilliant stroke of unwavering determination, MANOWAR have decided to re-record their now-classic debut album. What? You might be asking yourself. Re-record a classic? But think about it; in the words of the band themselves "we constantly receive requests for the classics. Our fans love the early songs as much as they love the new ones," says vocalist Eric Adams. Okay, but why re-record it? The band decided that their fans deserved to hear these songs with the massive sound and production that has become their signature over recent years and records. Finally, technology has caught up with MANOWAR's custom-built equipment and studio innovations. Now it is time to revisit Battle Hymns and reinterpret it with the unbridled power of today's technology.
