MANOWAR Blows Power At Cleveland’s Agora – Mar.

By on March 14, 2011
During their soundcheck on Friday afternoon (March 11) for their first of two shows at the Agora in Cleveland, Ohio, MANOWAR blew the power system on the entire city block where the venue is located. The power company still had not restored power as of last night and the venue was only operating with partial power. As a result, temporary generators had to be rushed in to run MANOWAR‘s sound and lights and a lot of extra gear was brought in for the show. Fortunately, the generators worked and the show was not canceled.

A short video clip from MANOWAR regarding the power situation can be seen on the band’s Facebook page.

MANOWAR‘s setlist for last night’s concert was as follows:

01. Manowar
02. Death Tone
03. Metal Daze
04. Fast Taker
05. Shell Shock
06. Dark Avenger
07. Battle Hymn
08. Sun Of Death
09. Brothers Of Metal
10. Blood Of My Enemies
11. Thor (The Powerhead)
12. Heart Of Steel
13. Hail And Kill
14. William’s Tale
15. Thunder In The Sky
16. Hand Of Doom
17. King Of Kings
18. The Power
19. Warriors Of The World
20. Kings Of Metal

Encore:

21. Black Wind, Fire And Steel
22. The Crown And The Ring

According to a posting on MANOWAR‘s official web site, the band is scheduled to return to the studio in April, presumably to resume work on its long-awaited new album, “Hammer Of The Gods”.

MANOWAR bassist and producer Joey DeMaio previously stated about the status of the songwriting and recording sessions for “Hammer Of The Gods”, “The truth is this: [original MANOWAR drummer] Donnie Hamzik is officially back in the band, and that changed everything for us. So all the songs that were written have been completely fucking thrown out, completely ditched — gone, never to be heard from again. The writing has changed because Donnie‘s back in the band and he’s burning like a mad motherfucking demon on drums. So this album is gonna basically sound like I told you before — like somebody put gasoline on your fucking balls and lit it. So it’ll be worth the fucking wait, ’cause when it comes, it’s coming back.”

“Hammer Of The Gods” was previously described as the first installment of “The Asgard Saga”, the band’s unique multimedia fantasy adventure with best-selling author Wolfgang Hohlbein
