ウォーターマン ロバート
By Robert Waterman

MANOWAR 来日単独公演行ってきました。
世界一の機材から放たれる世界一デカイ音の衝撃波は音浴といっても過言ではないほどに心地よくそして魂に沁み入るサウンドでした。
MANOWARがBestである僕にとっての音楽感というものが変わったのかもしれない。
I’ve been to the Manowar concert in Japan.
The shocking wave of the world’s loudest sound from the world’s best equipment was comfortable and touched my soul as if bathing in the sound.
For me, Manowar is the best band, and I think they have changed the sense of music.

来日公演以外は若造にはハードルが高く最も崇拝しているバンドなのに今回が初体験だった私は初めて真の意味でファンとしてライブに参加したのかもしれない。コレまでも好きなアーティストとかレベルのファンというか軽い気持ちで参加してきた事はあったのだけど、真の意味で狂信的なまでにファナティックなほどに好きというか尊敬というか忠義というか崇拝というかをしているバンド、アーティストのライブなんて体験してなかったもので。
It is difficult for young people to see Manowar overseas. Although I worship them so much, it was my very first time to see them playing live, and I think I attended this concert as a fan in the true sense. I have attended concerts of other artists just because I liked them, but this time it was my first experience to see the band that I really love, respect, and believe in fanatically in the true sense.

ビートルズの来日のときに失神する女子の気持ちがすこしわかったもの。
多分僕女だったら今日想像妊娠してたと思う。
客席で泣きながら歌った事なんてないしね僕も。
I could understand why girls passed out when the Beatles came to Japan.
If I were a girl, I could get false pregnancy (to see Manowar).
It was my first time to sing along with tears while seeing the show.

本当に歴史に残るライブだった。その場にいれて幸せだったしこの感覚は得難いし、多分今日の開演前の僕と終演後の僕は似て非なるものになっているのだと思う。うまく表現できないけど。でも今まで額面で理解していたが今なら真の意味が分かった。
Other Band’s play. Manowar Kill!!
今日僕は殺られたのだ。
なんかそこまでのものだった。
It was a historic concert really. I was happy to be there and it is hard to get this feeling in other situations. I think I’m different now from what I was before the concert started. I can’t express well. “Other bands play. Manowar kill!”- I used to understand it by words before, but now I understand the real meaning.
I got killed today. It was so overwhelming.

本当になんか終わって何時間も絶ってるんだがまだ余韻に浸れてる。
さぁもの作りをしよう。
あんな凄いものを見せられたのだ。何かを残さねばならない。
この情熱、想いを消化して昇華させねばならん。
エリック・アダムスの涙の熱唱に_応えないとな。
It’s been many hours since the concert finished but I’m still feeling excited. Let’s create something. I saw such a great thing. I have to leave something. I have to digest and sublime this passion and feeling.
I have to respond to Eric Adams’ passionate singing with tears.

@takecchi07
物凄いものを見てしまった。全てを超越、いやもうどう言葉にしていいのか分からない。凄いとか素晴らしいとかが陳腐な表現になってしまう位MANOWARのライブは凄かった。バンドと全てのMANOWARRIORにHAIL!! #manowar
I have seen something extraordinary. It was beyond everything and I don’t know how to express with words. Manowar kicked ass so hard that saying “great” or “fantastic” is such a cheesy expression. Hail to the band and Manowarriors!

@Crepusculum1008
マノウォー終了!本当に最高だった。みんながみんなマノウォーTシャツ着てて驚いた笑そして会場の雰囲気がすごく良かった。マノウォーへの愛で溢れてた。そ してマノウォーもマノウォーリアであるファンを愛していて感動した!あんなLIVEはそうそう見れるものじゃないと思う。本当良かった
Manowar’s show finished! It was really fantastic. I’m surprised that everyone wore Manowar T-shirts. And the atmosphere in the venue was so good, it was filled with love of Manowar. And I’m touched that Manowar also loves the fans, Manowarriors! I think I can rarely see such a show. It was really good.

@MASAANGUS
@Orimuh最前列で見させていただきました。盛り上がりましたね。始まる前から凄かったね。
I saw (Manowar) in the front row. It was exciting. (The fans were) so excited even before the show started.

@usuke8801
@Orimuh GJです!最後の最後で熱くなりました。
(Regarding the Japanese subtitles) Good job! I was moved so much in the end.

@morimetal
@Orimuh最後のメッセージは泣きました。ありがとうございます。
The last message (on the screen) made me cry. Thank you.

@pikonyan
@Orimuh改めてお疲れさまでした!それはまさにOrimuhさんがもらうべきですよ(^q^) ファン代表はいろいろと大変かと思いますが、これからもぜひ正しい彼らの姿をお伝え願います。( *^皿^)入 Hail!
Nice to see you today! Orimuh, you deserve it (Joey’s bass string). You might have much work to do as a Circle representative but please let the world know what Manowar really is.

@nakawar
@Orimuh最高の2日間でした。あの字幕は間違いなく最高助演賞です!!明日からもトゥルーメタル魂で頑張りましょう!
I had the greatest time for the last two days. The Japanese subtitle deserves the best supporting act award! Carry on with the spirit of true metal tomorrow too!

@bmtakemu
よろしくお願いします。 昨日、今日とライヴ後「凄い良かった」の声が多数でしたね。 93年チッタより明らかに皆歌えてました。 ブログのマムシバー拝見しました。 貴重な体験でしたね (-_^)
@Orimuh I heard “fantastic” after the show both yesterday and tonight from a lot of people. Clearly the fans could sing along better than the show at Citta in 1993. I read about the mamushi bar, a precious experience.

@SchwarzTeufel
@Orimuhあの会場内には「腰抜け」も「格好だけの奴」も存在しえなかったはずですlml Wimps and Posers, leave the Hall!!!
I’m sure no “wimps” and “posers” could be present in the venue. Wimps and Posers, leave the Hall!!!

‏@HeadbangerJP
@Orimuhこんばんは、初めまして。PRTリスナーです。親友が紆余曲折の末ようやくMANOWARを観ることができ、メールボックスにマムシやHailや鼓膜とい う文字が乱舞しています(笑)ブログ拝読しました。ただただお疲れさまでした、どうもありがとうございましたの二言に尽きます。
Good evening, I’m a listener of PRT (Power Rock Today, Masa Ito’s radio program). My best friend could finally see Manowar after twists and turns, and my mail box is filled with the words from him such as mamushi, hail, and eardrum lol. I read your report in the blog, thank you so much.

‏@HeadbangerJP
@Orimuh私は今回どうしても都合をつけられず行けなかったのですが、友人達からのメールや電話(轟音と興奮のためか、話す声が大きくなっていました(笑))や、ラ ジオ番組に寄せられた皆さんの感激ぶりに次回の来日か、どこかで観られる機会があれば行きます。改めてお礼を申し上げます。
I couldn’t change my schedule to go to the show, but reading e-mails from my friends and talking with them on the phone (their voice was so loud maybe because of loud sound and excitement lol), and hearing the excited comments of the fans sent to the radio program, I’m going to their concert if I have a chance to see them anywhere. Thank you.

@usuke8801
あー、MANOWAR楽しかったなあ。ラウパでやれなかったのが悔やまれる。間違いなくファン増えただろうに〜。
I had such a good time seeing Manowar. It’s a pity that they couldn’t play at Loud Park. I’m sure they would have get more fans.

@usuke8801
MANOWARライブのfall brothersを思い出してたら、黒澤×三船の映画を観たくなったので『椿三十郎』を酒のつまみに観るの巻。
As I recalled fallen brothers during the Manowar show I wanted to see the movie by Kurosawa and Mifune so I’m watching “Tsubaki Sanjuro” while drinking sake.

@deelee_2bullet
今回のMANOWARの来日公演に来れなかった皆さんに感想を伝えるとすれば。 「今までネタだと思われてきた名言や伝説の数々は、ひとつ残らず真実でした。」
If I tell something to everyone who couldn’t see Manowar shows in Japan – “All the statements and legends of the band that were considered as made-up stories are completely true”.

@deelee_2bullet
MANOWAR 本日のハイライトは後ろを向くエリックの肩を抱いて、「ほら、前を見なよ!」って促すと、感極まったエリックが堪えきれず涙を流していたシーンだな。
Today’s highlight of Manowar was that (Karl) patting Eric on the shoulder to encourage him to turn around and see the audience, and Eric seemed to be filled with feelings and shed tears.

@Couples_info
I’m too happy because of Manowar so it’s hard to live.

@TOWER_HRHM
マノウォー来日公演爆音にて終了!チクショー、最後の最後まで泣かせやがる、、ラウドパークでも必ず戻って来ること約束してました!
Manowar live in Japan with loud sound finished! They made me cry in the end…they promised to come back at Loud Park!

@watanabeyu1030
今日で日本人はハッキリと二種類に分けられた。 マノウォーのライブを見たことがあるか、そうでないかだ。
Today Japanese people were clearly divided into two types. Those who have seen Manowar live and those who have not.

@watanabeyu1030
想像の何百倍も音がデカく、想像の何百倍も本気だった。 ディマイオ閣下、まさに言文一致、名言に寸分違わぬ佇まいだった。 この人たちがいなくなったメタルの将来を思い、不安にさえなった。 情け容赦のない、しかし情熱的な体験を、ありがとうございました。
The sound was hundreds of times louder than I expected, and they put all the power hundreds of times more than I expected. Mr. DeMaio was just like his words. Thinking about the future of metal without them, I got worried. Thank you for the merciless but passionate experience.

@watanabeyu1030
最前列ステージ向かって右側、巨大スピーカーの真ん前だった。 終始顔全体に衝撃が走り、低音で脳と鼻腔が揺れていた。 触れる音は、聴いたことがなかった。
I was in the front row, on the right side facing the stage, in front of the huge speaker. Throughout the show I felt the blast on my face and the bass shook my brain and nasal cavity. I had never heard such sound that I could felt.

@jiro6633
たくさん泣きました。
I cried a lot.

@jiro6633
いろんなライブ見てきましたが、こんなに動物として圧倒された経験はなかったです
I have seen many concerts but as an animal I’ve never been overwhelmed like this.

@jiro6633
正直いうと二度目のマノウォーにわりと負担感がある。退屈とかそういうのではもちろんなくて、昨日初めて行って知ったけど、マノウォーのライブって強度の 圧倒と畏怖の体験で、ライブとして無茶苦茶「重い」の。メタルだろうがハードコアだろうが、こんなライブ経験は本当に初めて。
To be honest, seeing the second day of seeing Manowar is kind of burden. Of course I don’t mean that I get bored. When I saw them for the first time yesterday and got to know that the show of Manowar is an experience of being strongly overwhelmed and struck with awe, which is very “heavy”. I’ve never experienced such a thing in live shows of other metal or hardcore bands.

@jiro6633
離れて見た方があの迫力に圧倒されずに見れるので、逆に彼らのパフォーマンスの巧みさ(さすが30年選手)がよく分かった。各曲のキメどころでの動きとかすごく細かいところまで計算されて構築されているのがよく分かった。
I could see the show a bit far from the stage without being too much overwhelmed, and I could see well how actually good their performance was (they’ve been playing for 30 years). I saw well that their actions at certain points of the songs were designed and structured in great detail.

@jiro6633
メタルTシャツが口々に「いい経験をした」的なことを語り合っているマノウォー後。僕も帰る。いい経験をした。
Many people in metal T-shirts are talking like “I had a good experience” after seeing Manowar. I’m going home too. I had a good experience.

@jiro6633
はあ。20年間続いたマノウォーを見れない人生がついに終わった。明日からはマノウォーを見た人生が始まる。
Well, 20 years of my life without seeing Manowar is finally over. Tomorrow my life in which I’ve seen Manowar will begin.

@koji_orz
人生でこんなに短時間で何回も「kill」と叫んだのは初めてだ。 この記録は再びMANOWARのライブに参戦するまで更新できない。
This is my first time in my life to shout “kill” so many times in such a short time. This record won’t be updated until I see Manowar again.

@Sabbath31Aria
Manowar最高過ぎた!この容赦ない爆音はまさに最強!!!!
Manowar kicked ass! This merciless loud sound is the most powerful one!!!!

@b_bash
世界で一番音がでかいバンドとしてギネス登録されているMANOWAR。「でかい。けどクリア」とは話には聞いていたけど、ベースが鳴った瞬間風が吹いたかと思うほどの音圧。でも全部の音が綺麗に聞こえる。凄すぎでしょ。なんかラウパより全然耳痛くないし。
Manowar has the Guinness world record as the world’s loudest band. I heard that their sound is loud but clear, and actually at the moment when the bass was played there was a sound pressure as if a wind blew. But I could hear all the sounds clearly. Just fantastic. It didn’t give me any earache unlike at Loud Park.

@kensukeshimoda
情け容赦ない男達、MANOWAR。しかしクリエイティブマンに情けをかけてステージでMANOWARRIORSとの和解の場を設けたのには感動した。あそこで来年のラウドパークへのブッキングを約束させれば皆幸せだろうという粋な計らい。本当に凄いバンドだよな。
Merciless men, Manowar. However I was touched when they gave mercy Creativeman and set the opportunity to reconcile the promoter and Manowarriors. Everyone will be happy if the promoter promises to book Manowar for the next year’s Loud Park. Great band, really.

@kensukeshimoda
明日観に行く人のためにネタバレはさけるけど最高だったのは言うまでもない。音楽を超えた何かを体験してしまった。目の前にいるジョーイ・ディマイオという男はベースを弾いてるように
I won’t tell detail for people who’s going to the show tomorrow but it’s needles to say that they kicked ass. I experienced something beyond music. Joey DeMaio in front of me (continued to the next post)

@kensukeshimoda
途中で送っちゃった。ただベースを弾いてるようには見えなかった。大剣を振り回して怪物の体を切り刻んでるように見えた。とにかく闘っていた。
(continued from the previous post) looked like not only playing the bass, but wielding a big sword and cutting the body of a monster into pieces. He was fighting.

@kensukeshimoda
ほんと来年来て欲しいな。
I really want them (Manowar) to come back next year.

Due to circumstances beyond either the promoter’s or MANOWAR’s control, the band will be unable to perform at Loud Park Festival on October 18, 2014. The band will instead play 2 concerts at Zepp Diver City in Tokyo on October 29 and October 30, 2014.

The promoters of Loud Park Festival have announced that all details about tickets will soon be available on www.loudpark.com

Due to a huge fire at the Port Of Los Angeles last week the cargo vessel transporting MANOWAR’s container to Japan was delayed, thereby arriving too late for the scheduled performance on October 18.

“MANOWAR’s equipment is custom made and an irreplaceable part of our live performance.
From the guitars, to our speaker cabinets and everything else in between. It would have been unfair to our Japanese fans to consider a solution that would have been less than 100% MANOWAR,” said Joey DeMaio.

The problems caused by the fire at the Port Of Los Angeles created such severe disruption that even the backup vessel couldn’t make it on time for the festival.

“We, along with the promoters, worked around the clock to find a solution and we are happy that we found one which allows us to give the Japanese Manowarriors the full ass-kicking power of a real MANOWAR show,” added DeMaio.

In Japanese:
ロサンゼルス港の火事によりMANOWARの再来日が日程変更

プロモーターやMANOWARの力が及ばない状況により、MANOWAR20141018日のLoud Parkに出演することができなくなりました。バンドは代わりに20141029日と1030日に東京のZepp Diver City2回のコンサートを行う予定です。

Loud Parkのプロモーターは、チケットに関するあらゆる詳細を発表しており、間もなくwww.loudpark.comで見ることができます。

MANOWARの機材は特注で、我々のライヴパフォーマンスの掛け替えのない一部だ。ギターからスピーカーキャビネットまで、その他ありとあらゆるもの全てだ。100%MANOWARに満たなくなる解決策を考慮することは、日本のファンにとって不公平となったであろう」とジョーイ・ディマイオは語っている。

ロサンゼルス港での火事によって引き起こされた問題は、非常に重大な混乱を生じたため、予備の船でさえもフェスティヴァルに間に合わなくなった。

「我々はプロモーターとともに、解決策を見つけるために昼も夜も働き、日本のManowarriorsに本当のMANOWARのショウの最高のパワーを与えることができる解決策を見つけて喜んでいる」とディマイオは付け加えた。

For their first German concert during the “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” World Tour in the new year MANOWAR have once again come up with something special.

Band leader and bassist Joey DeMaio announced during a press conference in Essen, Germany on October 1st that the U.S. metal rockers have invited the youth orchestra of Goetheschule Essen-Bredeney to perform on stage right before MANOWAR’s “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” show on January 14, 2015 in Essen’s Grugahalle.

For their performance in front of thousands of dedicated MANOWAR fans, the young musicians, who have garnered first stage experience through performances in the region, plan to play pieces from their own repertoire as well as orchestral versions of MANOWAR classics.
The Bredeneyer Schulorchester (Bredeneyer school orchestra) was formed in 1972. A cast of 80 to 100 musicians under the guidance of Dr. Marcus Schönwitz plays works from Wagner, Beethoven, Dvorák, Ravel and others, as well as popular music like the iconic title melody of sci-fi cult movie “Star Wars”.

“We have invited this school orchestra to represent young musicians all over the world, to show us what they are passionate about. We have offered them the opportunity to reach an audience that we know understands the tremendous power of music, and that they have more in common with than they may imagine” explained Joey DeMaio.
“We want to encourage teenagers to pursue their goals, regardless what others say. Especially as a young adult you are often confronted with the harsh criticism of your peers, because in their eyes you are not “cool” enough. Because you go to choir or orchestra practice while they play soccer or do other things that are the current trend” said DeMaio, a doctor of music sciences and known Wagner aficionado.
“Following your path without doubt; standing up for what you believe in, no matter if it will gain you popularity or not… this is what MANOWAR and metal stand for, and this unites these young musicians with our MANOWAR fans.
Together we will make the Grugahalle shake on January 14, and show the world that music makes us strong, and is there for us when we need it. Like true brothers and sisters of metal will always be there for each other!”

MANOWAR have recently announced their return into the studio to work on their yet untitled new record and will resume their touring schedule in January 2015, among others with 3 exclusive shows in Germany; on January 14, 2015 at Grugahalle, Essen, on January 16, 2015 at Zenith, Munich and on January 17, 2015 at the sold out Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt/Main.

During the work on the new album the idea was born to invite young orchestra musicians, representative for teenagers and young adults everywhere, and to encourage them with this performance to pursue their dreams.
Ideas were quickly turned into deeds and without any hesitation the school orchestra of Essen’s Goetheschule was invited to present themselves to the metal community during MANOWAR’s concert on January 14, 2015 at Grugahalle Essen.

The “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” World Tour celebrates the 25th anniversary of the best-selling hit album from 1988 and the following “Kings Of Metal” World Tour, and is packed with the entire new “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” album, many other face-melting fan favorites, unique multi-media contents and other surprises.

In Deutsch:

MANOWAR geben Essener Nachwuchs-Musikern eine neue Plattform

Für das erste Deutschland-Konzert im Rahmen ihrer “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” Welttournee im neuen Jahr haben sich MANOWAR wie so oft etwas Besonderes einfallen lassen.

Wie MANOWAR Bandleader und Bassist Joey DeMaio im Rahmen einer Pressekonferenz am 1. Oktober in Essen bekannt gab, haben die amerikanischen Metal-Rocker das Jugendorchester der Goetheschule Essen-Bredeney eingeladen, unmittelbar vor MANOWARs “Kings Of Metal MMXIV” Show am 14. Januar 2015 in der Essener Grugahalle aufzutreten.

Für ihre Aufführung vor Tausenden treuer MANOWAR Fans werden die jungen Musiker, die mit Auftritten in der Region bereits Bühnenerfahrung erlangt haben, neben Stücken aus ihrem eigenen Repertoire auch orchestrale Versionen beliebter MANOWAR Klassiker einstudieren.
Das Bredeneyer Schulorchester wurde 1972 gegründet und spielt unter der Leitung von Dr. Marcus Schönwitz mit einer Besetzung von 80-100 Nachwuchs-Musikern unter anderem Werke von Wagner, Beethoven, Dvorák und Ravel, aber auch Populärmusik wie die Titelmelodie des Sci-Fi Kultfilms “Star Wars”.

“Wir haben dieses Schulorchester stellvertretend für junge Musiker auf der ganzen Welt eingeladen zu zeigen was sie begeistert. Wir bieten ihnen die Gelegenheit ein Publikum zu erreichen, von dem wir wissen dass es die unglaubliche Kraft der Musik versteht, und mit dem diese Jugendlichen mehr verbindet als sie sich vielleicht vorstellen können.” erklärte Joey DeMaio.

“Wir wollen junge Menschen ermutigen ihre Ziele zu verfolgen, egal was andere sagen. Gerade als Jugendlicher wird man oft konfrontiert mit der harschen Kritik seiner Altersgenossen, weil man in deren Augen nicht “cool” genug ist. Weil man zum Beispiel zur Chor- oder Orchesterprobe geht während andere Fußball spielen oder machen was sonst gerade Trend ist.” so DeMaio, selbst ein Doktor der Musikwissenschaften und bekennender Wagner-Fan.

“Unbeirrbar seinen Weg zu gehen; für das einzustehen woran man glaubt, egal ob man dadurch Popularität erringt oder nicht… das ist es wofür MANOWAR und Metal stehen und das vereint diese jungen klassischen Musiker mit unseren MANOWAR Fans. Gemeinsam werden wir am 14. Januar die Grugahalle zum Beben bringen und der Welt zeigen, dass Musik uns stark macht und für uns da ist, wann immer wir sie brauchen. So wie wahre Brothers und Sisters of Metal immer füreinander da sind!”

MANOWAR haben kürzlich ihre Rückkehr ins Studio bekanntgegeben, wo sie an ihrem noch nicht betitelten neuen Album arbeiten, und werden ihre Tour ab Januar 2015 fortsetzen, darunter mit drei exklusiven Konzerten in Deutschland, am 14. Januar 2015 in der Grugahalle, Essen; am 16. Januar 2015 im Zenith, München und am 17. Januar 2015 in der bereits ausverkauften Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt/Main.

Während der Arbeiten am neuen Album wurde die Idee geboren, junge Orchestermusiker – stellvertretend für junge Menschen überall in der Welt – einzuladen und mit dieser Aktion zu bestärken ihren Träumen zu folgen.
Ideen folgten Taten und so wurde kurzerhand das Schulorchester der Essener Goetheschule eingeladen, sich beim MANOWAR Konzert am 14. Januar 2015 der Metal Gemeinde zu präsentieren.

Die „Kings Of Metal MMXIV“ Welttour feiert das Jubiläum des Bestseller Albums von 1988 und die anschließende “Kings Of Metal” Welttournee und ist vollgepackt mit dem kompletten neuen „Kings Of Metal MMXIV“ Album, vielen anderen schmelzenden Fanfavoriten, einzigartigen Multimedia-Inhalten und anderen Überraschungen.
