Manowar began rocking in 1980, when the band was first formed in Auburn, New
York. With their intriguing lyrics that combine various fantasy storytelling elements and a talented group of musicians who
combine for an incredible sound that has been creating fans for decades, Manowar remains one of the classic metal bands that
still can rock the stage as well as anyone. Started when bassist Joe DeMaio met guitarist Ross the Boss, Manowar originally
started with covers and playing small gigs at local venues, though soon they really came into their own and started to elevate
their musical style to reach a much wider audience.
From humble beginnings, Manowar hones their skills and musical vision
and eventually came up with a dizzying blend of metal anthems that helped to capture the genre by storm in the mid-1980s.
The heavy metal performers have broken the Guinness Book of World Records for loudest performance, and they have delivered
riveting tunes to the public ever since 1981, when their debut album "Battle Hymns" was released. All in all, this is simply
a legendary music group that has become somewhat legendary around heavy metal circles, making it always a good idea to ditch
the live CD album you have in your car to see this band rock out up close and personal.

both in Germany and Austria, showing that they have the type of music that transcends language and has developed a major following

on two different songs?

by the lyrics, and Welles would again be brought on board a couple years later for track "Defender."
