My dear favorite band, I greet you from Germany at the age of 29.
My story about you begins in 2002. In fact, music came from you on TV and that changed my life on so many levels … It was the song “I belive”. What came over me was an unprecedented feeling. It was like a door opened into a world that was long to be explored by me, it was a part of me that I had finally found and longed for!
I went to the store and bought the CD “The Dawn of Battle” and listened to the 3 songs up and down on it. I wanted more, so I bought the album “Warriors of the World” and fulfilled all my musical desires. This album, this band shows the highest musical art and every facet of heavy metal in perfection.
My life changed in so many ways because of you, especially my style and my inner strength. Manowar made me stronger and made me survive bad things better and when I go to their concerts something magical happens there, something that only this band sprays like this. It is as if I know you personally, you touch my heart and soul.
What you achieve in the Manowarriors is priceless and unique, because we go further for you than all other fans of the world together! What you are to me is the musical love of my life, always unchallenged!
Back in school, they told me that I only had a phase, that would pass in 2 years at the latest. See you fools! They all wanted to put me down, but I remained steadfast and fought for and with you! Every insult I got because I’m a Manowar fan, I’m proud to knock it off, because through you Manowar we are invincible. Even if we fall, in Valhalla we will be the winners at Odin’s side! I am still here with all your splendor, a heavy metal band that managed to make me cry, several times, because you are part of my truth and I will never forget that.
Most of the world unfortunately does not recognize your importance and genius, but for me and many others you are the greatest achievement of music and I am infinitely happy to be able to live in your time. For you I went to concerts alone without a car or with an accompaniment and even if the money is tight again, a new work by you will be bought.
Manowar you made me the person I am. You teach us pride, strength, brotherhood and love. And so I write to you that I really love you and that you are part of my personality and my heart and soul.
I will see you again in Nuremberg, Germany on April 17th, 2021; my mother, my brother and my blood brother by my side, by your side!
… In eternal loyalty, your manowarrior
Emanuel Luis de la Fuente Fernandez
Our Brazilian Manowarriors have a passion and devotion that we want to share with the world. Thank you all for your incredible loyalty! We can’t wait to return and celebrate again with you!
WORDS OF POWER, coming to you as podcast and blog, is a way for me to reach people directly and address topics that I think will be interesting and of value to you.
It is also a platform for you to reach me, so that I can address things that you would like to hear, not just about my music and MANOWAR.
Topics will be diverse and range from updates on projects I am working on, being an entrepreneur and a musician, navigating through the ever-changing music industry to my personal experiences and life itself. I’ll also bring on guests that have impressed or inspired me and that I believe you will enjoy, too.
Even if you are not a musician or an entrepreneur, I believe you’ll find great value in these WORDS OF POWER, as they will touch ideas, values and mindsets that are relevant in many ways, to all of us, in all areas of life.
WORDS OF POWER and my new website come in response to the many emails, private messages and other requests that I receive every day from people asking for advice; sometimes regarding their careers but also regarding difficult situations, overcoming obstacles or because they are at a turning point in their life and need encouragement and inspiration. As a musician and entrepreneur with over four decades of successes and challenges it is my honor to share my experiences with you.
I am looking forward to taking this journey with you.
WORDS OF POWER
FOR A POWERFUL LIFE
