Rough translation below, for English speaking fans:

MANOWAR’s “Battle Hymn” and “Mila Rodino” rocked Sofia

There are concerts that people go to because it’s fashionable to make their own selfies and check in on Facebook. There are concerts that people go to because the singer or band is currently trendy.

But there are also concerts at which you do not meet the above two types of people. Such was MANOWAR’s show last night in Arena Armeec.

About 10,000 people aged from 6 to 60 headbanged to one of the cult metal bands that once again proved that no matter how many concerts they would do in Bulgaria, fans would always be there.

The concert was not like all the traditional ones. After the intro, Joey DeMaio, Eric Adams, Anders Johansson, Evandro Moraes and Joe Rozler went on stage and for more than two hours shook the audience with sound, video and fireworks. There were almost no pauses between the songs. After the last chords of one, the next one was beginning. For the time of the concert, Manowar let the fans stop only during the speech of Joey DeMaio, who did not fail to praise the Bulgarians, the rakija, the shopska salad, the mayors Yordanka Fandakova and Tsonko Tsonev from Kavarna. DeMaio promised that this is not the end, and that MANOWAR will come back again.

The sound was shattering. Perhaps never before Arena Armeec has heard such a loud sound. Even if you yelled – the chance that the person you hear would be almost zero, but no one had come to talk anyways, we were all there only to enjoy true heavy metal.

Besides the sound, the other impressive thing was the screen above the stage. Successfully competing animations with those of Pink Floyd’s concerts flowed throughout the show. Vikings, chariots, swords and fire in the midst of mountain ranges took the fans into the tales of Manowar’s lyrics. And all against the background of fireworks.

When the first chords of the Bulgarian anthem began, it was as if everyone was expecting it. After the first time Eric Adams sang it in Kavarna, “Mila Rodino” was the most expected song by the fans.

After two encores, the concert was over, but there no one was disappointed, because MANOWAR had done 20 of their hits for two hours and took the fans from the 80’s to the present day.

 

While MANOWAR’s crushing “The Final Battle World Tour 2019” will soon celebrate its face-melting finale in Istanbul, Turkey on July 20, 2019 there is also great news for the fans in Denmark!

Joey DeMaio will bring his Spoken Word Tour, “The Blood Of The Kings”, for an exclusive evening to Odense, Denmark. The event will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2019 @ Posten.

For the first time ever MANOWAR will open their vast archives and give their fans the chance to hear the official history of MANOWAR, straight from the source!

The glory and the battles; the secrets, and the triumph of steel; life on the road and in the studio – witness Joey DeMaio in an intimate setting unfold “The Blood Of The Kings” chapter by chapter; live, onstage and in person, in this captivating one-man multimedia show.

“The Blood Of The Kings” Spoken Word Tour is a rare, personal look inside the exceptional career of one of the most iconic, most enduring bands in Heavy Metal.

General Admission tickets for this event are now on sale on postenlive.dk

Ultimate Fan Experience (UFE) Upgrades that provide an even more in-depth experience will be made available soon, in limited quantities per event.

Our performance at Hellfest scheduled for June 21, 2019, was NOT cancelled by the band; it was cancelled by the Hellfest organizers in their announcement that appeared on their websites.

In the days prior to Hellfest, Switzerland, Greece, and Bulgaria all witnessed our massive production that brought The Kingdom Of Steel to life. We brought it to Hellfest because we came to play.

We fought to give our fans the performance we promised last year at Hellfest, but we will not be pushed around by the Hellfest promoters who chose not to honor their contractual obligations and think they can do wrong to us and to our fans.

Those of you who have requested information regarding ticket refunds should contact the outlet where you purchased your ticket or the Hellfest organizers directly, as they are responsible.

We are currently seeking every legal remedy available to us by law.

Here a rough translation for our English speaking fans:

Almost a decade after their last visit to Bulgaria, the Manowar Metal Kings have once again come to their home scene to bring a titanic concert, to put it mildly. The months before the event, the tour was announced as a farewell and accordingly titled “The Final Battle”. The hearts of the fans were broken … but Joey DeMaio and company did announce that MANOWAR’s tour was not the last, on the contrary, the band is preparing new material, a new album, new concerts … We pray you, do not you scare us like this! 🙂

In recent years, all sorts of rock and metal names have appeared in Bulgaria, but when it comes to world-class stars, this show was on a whole different level. Because MANOWAR is undoubtedly one of the greatest musical luminaries in history – few groups can reach their popularity among different ages, genders and nationalities around the world.

What happened exactly in the evening of June 16 in Arena Armeec Hall?  It is hard to describe in words. The 120-minute fire show of the group began with the song “Manowar” from the band’s debut album “Battle Hymns” from 1982. The sound was murderous, the scene was a forge located amid bloody volcanoes, scattered bones and skeletons (apparently forgotten characters !) around where “Manowar” raged like a whirlwind of steel. One after another, the metal hymns – “Brothers of Metal”, “Blood of My Enemies”, “Warriors of the World”, “Fighting the World”, “Hail & Kill”, songs that made the blood boil, are tense and the audience erupts like a single powerful army.

Hardly anyone doubted that MANOWAR would bring the best of their work to their Bulgarian fans. But they did even more. Twelve years after his cult visit to Kavarna, during which vocalist Erik Adams performed the Bulgarian anthem, the tale was repeated. And with what power and emotion! The audience paused, disbelieving, then stood up and sang in with the Kings of Metal “Gorda Stara Planina …”.

Fire and steel, dragons and warriors leading sacred wars – epic scenes played on a huge screen during each of the songs that performed “Manowar”! The audience wanted more and more, the stage was dying and boiling, and one after another, immortal compositions – “Call to Arms”, “Swords in the Wind”, “The Power of Thy Sword” were shot, until the panting “Black Wind, Fire & Steel” and bitter separation; thankfully, not forever!

Other bands play, MANOWAR kills!

Here a rough translation for our English speaking fans:

 The Warriors of MANOWAR Conquered Bulgaria 

The Heavy Metal heroes honored the local fans with “Mila Rodino”

The favorites of the local metal scene MANOWAR performed a magnificent show in front of thousands of Bulgarian fans gathered in Arena Armeec on Sunday night. The American band presented the best of its discography. The show was part of The Final Battle World Tour, with album hits over the past 30 years being performed

Traditionally, vocalist Eric Adams performed the Bulgarian anthem, which was highly and loudly appreciated by Bulgarian fans.

Then bass guitarist Joey DeMaio admitted that Bulgaria is one of his favorite destinations. He added that he liked Bulgarian beer and rakia, greeted Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova and dedicated the concert to all heavy metal defenders as well as the deceased Bulgarian translator Nelly. DeMaio even spoke Bulgarian, but that should not surprise us because he is a friend of former Kavarna Mayor Tsonko Tsonev and the first concert of the band in Bulgaria – in 2007, within Kavarna Rock Fest, he already he had learned an enormous amount of Bulgarian words with which he freely worked from the stage by the sea. The show ended with the words: ‘today, on June 16, the Warriors of MANOWAR conquered Bulgaria!’

The show was broadcast live on a huge LED screen behind the stage, and in a set of volcanoes, battle scenes and real Vikings carrying torches that symbolized the transition to Valhalla. The band came with a team of more than 60 people in Sofia.
