Manowar: The Sons Of Odin

Manowar is one of the bands who will always do things in a big way because when it came to Metal that is very simply how they always did it. Why change the process when it came to releasing a new single on the millions of fans that they have built in their army over the years. Their new song "The Sons Of Odin" comes to the world on a very special edition CD/DVD EP. Slip cased with a fold out poster inside the Manowar acolyte is treated to live versions of two of their songs as well as an instrumental and two immortal editions of the new material. It also includes a DVD which will be fun for many of the fans because it includes a full documentary on the Manowar Fan Convention which finds the organizer describing how it all went down. There is a lot of commentary footage and photos on what the rest of us missed at this event and I am sure this will be something that continues going forward since Manowar is very dedicated to their fan base legions and their overall loyalty. The new songs are exactly what you would expect from the band, epic in scale and scope as well as nice and heavy. Thundering music and glass-breaking vocal lines (a 5.1 surround sound mix is also featured on the DVD). We also get a sneak peak of the double live DVD that is coming soon and some rehearsal footage. The concert film will show the group at work during their "Demons, Dragons & Warriors World Tour" and it should be a good one. Start polishing that sword, Manowar is coming.

Manowar: The Sons Of Odin
Posted by Pete Pardo, SoT Staff Writer on 2006-11-03 09:51:08
My Score:

Manowar's first ever EP, The Sons of Odin, is a nice little CD/DVD package with plenty of bells and whistles to qualify it as a must have for loyal fans. You get here live performances of "The Ascension" and "King of Kings" from last years Earthshaker Festival, the latter an classic epic from the band with narration, the powerful vocals of Eric Adams, plenty of bombastic riffs and sledgehammer power metal rhythms. True metal? You betcha. Also included is the sweeping instrumental "Odin", the symphonic power metal track "Gods of War"(both to be featured on the upcoming album Gods of War), and the heavy "The Sons of Odin". If you are a fan of the band, feel confident that their brand of warrior metal is still in full force.

The DVD is loaded with goodies, including a documentary featuring footage from the 2005 Manowar Fan Convention, as well as some clips from the upcoming double live DVD and a 5.1 Surround Sound mix of the CD tracks.Overall this will be a enjoyable release for fans to dig into while they wait for the upcoming CD and DVD. The band is calling this little set 'The Immortal Package'-pick one up and see why.
