With 2022 full of special celebrations for their fans, MANOWAR are adding yet another highlight to next year’s calendar: MANOWAR’s exclusive performance in Plovdiv will celebrate the anniversary of MANOWAR’s first, history-making performance in Bulgaria 15 years ago.

This once-in-a-lifetime event will take place on July 4, 2022, as part of the traditional series of concerts HILLS EXCLUSIVE.

MANOWAR first played in Bulgaria in July 2007 in Kavarna, rewarding their fans’ long-standing faith with an epic show, including a powerful and moving rendition of the country’s national anthem, Mila Rodino. The band returned the following year, surprising the Bulgarian Manowarriors with a performance lasting more than 5 hours!

“Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Manowarriors hold a very special place in our hearts!” said Joey DeMaio. “They have welcomed us into their country and into their hearts from the first time we played, and every time we return is more special than the last. This 15-year anniversary celebration will be a unique performance, created especially for Bulgaria; a spectacle not to be missed!”

MANOWAR’s return to Bulgaria is part of the CRUSHING THE ENEMIES OF METAL ANNIVERSARY TOUR ’22, which will be packed with fan favorites from the band’s career and will pay special tribute to six signature MANOWAR albums and their anniversaries:

40th Anniversary of Battle Hymns
35th Anniversary of Fighting The World
30th Anniversary of The Triumph Of Steel
20th Anniversary of Warriors Of The World
15th Anniversary of Gods Of War

Hello Manowarriors around the world.

My name is Rubí Arenzana Anízar, I’m 30 years old and I’m from Mexico City.
My story with Manowar began 17 years ago, when I listened the song “Battle Hymns” for the first time. I still remember all that feeling on my body, I have that feeling everytime I listen it. I felt the music on my body and my heartbeat was faster. From that moment, Manowar became part of my life; their lyrics, their melodies, their members have been a great example to me.

One of my biggest dreams, was going to a Manowar’s concert, and when they announced that date in Mexico I cried out of excitement.

I arrived to the place three days before the event, so I could be the first to enter. The staff told me I was crazy, but I didn’t care, I was only thinking about being there and the excitement of seeing and listening to Manowar live.

The day arrived, and when Manowar came out to the scenario, I forgot everything and my body and soul were with them on the scenario. I feel really lucky that Joey DeMaio gave me his string, I felt at that moment an absolute and indescribable happiness that I’ll keep as a treasure for the rest of my life.

All I have to say is: thank you Manowar, you are the best band in the world.

The Kings of Metal Forever!!!!!!!

The first MANOWAR song I ever heard was “Thor”.

It was in November 1986, when I left the hospital with my newborn daughter, I heard it on the radio.

Other bands always sing about love and heartache, but MANOWAR was different, this music and lyrics were powerful and amazing! I liked it from the first moment and I love the powerful and lovely voice of Eric!

Since this moment I was a MANOWAR fan and I will be until I die!

All hail to the gods of true metal! ❤

On April 16, 2019 MANOWAR performed, as the first internationally renowned rock/metal band in Longyearbyen on the archipelago of Svalbard, Norway. Longyearbyen is the northernmost year-round settlement in the world, near the Arctic Circle. The spectacular landscape, the overwhelming kindness of the locals and loyal fans traveling from around the globe, including South Africa, Brazil, Russia, Germany, Italy and many other countries made this an extraordinary event that the band and crew will never forget.

This excerpt was taken from MANOWAR’s upcoming Blu-ray/DVD/digital release Hell On Earth VI that celebrates their FINAL BATTLE WORLD TOUR 2019/2020.

Hi guys… Well my story is..

The first time i heard you guys is through my father i was in a christian family but on the 10th birthday my dad played and introduce to me to Manowar and the first song i heard was “Sons of Odin” then slowly he handed me the walkman and i listen to all the 12 track in the disc and yes slowly it grows and then when i came across the internet i started surfing the Manowar and i found my favourite song “Courage” and it does touch my heart and I’ve never felt anything like it and every time i feel down i always put on this song and yes it lifts me up…

If I’m a Manowar fan today i thank my Father because he’s the one who gives me the #courage to listen….

Favorite tracks

  1. Courage
  2. Sons of Odin
  3. Warriors of the world
  4. Pleasure slave

These are my journey with you guys and forever be a Manowar fan

A Heavy Metal Warrior.

The very first time I heard anything like metal was when I was 11 years old. I was not a metalhead though. I had always liked heavy music.

My Manowar story started last year when Manowar had announced their tour dates. My twin sister Yağmur  is a die-hard Manowarrior and a metalhead for a very long time. She insisted on going to a Manowar show. She wanted to go so much that she cancelled her internship and all plans related to her studies. She made me listen to all Manowar songs and prepared me for the concert.

The concert day my life changed. I finally understood my twin sister’s passion for Manowar and metal music. And i was reborn as a Manowarrior. It was the best experience of my life, pretty much like the lyrics (Die for Metal):

“They call themselves immortals
They’re the truest of the true
And in that very moment
I was born again like you

They said

Hold your head up high
Raise your fists up in the air
Play metal louder than Hell “

It’s been over a year since then and we are celebrating with our matching SWORD tattoos.

I can never thank my sister enough, without her i wouldn’t be here writing this.

One does not choose to become a metalhead. Metal will find you and make you its own.

I have been listening to Manowar since my friend discovered Fighting The World back in 1987, and been to lots of concerts in Denmark and Germany ever since.

I’m into hard endurance sports, and in that regard, mental training is very important and I have discovered that I can use Manowar’s power actively.

When I spend 10-20 hours alone on my bike, with crises along the way and pain for several hours at a time, with only my thoughts as a companion, those thoughts can very quickly become an enemy.

When it gets really tough, I throw Manowar in my ears and build my own Manowar universe in my head, my bike is my horse, my water bottle is my battlesword and then I conquer one town after another, slaughtering the infidels.

Many of the songs have words like “Fight”, “battle” etc, and I sing them loud like a mantra and gear myself up, and it becomes a battle instead of a bike ride.

The trick is to get my thoughts to a completely different place, so I forget the pain and negativity, and in Manowar’s universe, which is extremely macho, you fight to the death, and then I can’t give up either.

I’m still amazed at the effect it has on me. No other music has had a similar effect on me.

The pictures are 2 of me when i’m out riding, 1 of my Sign of the hammer tattoo and one with my mate from the concert in Kiel 2018.
