Finally, technology has caught up with MANOWAR’s custom-built touring and recording equipment. The band decided that their fans deserved to hear the songs from their debut album “BATTLE HYMNS” with the massive sound and production that has become their signature over recent years and records.
With the decision to reinterpret the music came the need to revisit the famed narration of the legendary Orson Welles. There was only one obvious choice and that was Sir Christopher Lee. Recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London, his own inspired interpretation of the late, great Orson Welles on “Dark Avenger” will be another jewel in the crown of the Kings Of Metal.
BATTLE HYMNS MMXI features two previously un-released live versions of “Death Tone” and “Fast Taker” recorded during the band’s very first concerts in 1982. These are the rarest bonus materials ever released to date in MANOWAR’s career.
Fast Taker – Recorded Live at Taylor City Expo Center Arena, Abilene, Texas – July 31st 1982
Death Tone – Recorded Live at Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas – August 1st 1982
