Manowar is a band who has been known to display some of the most epic (and corny) imagery in metal. So imagine how underwhelmed and dissapointed I was when I came across their new album artwork:

No bulging biceps anywhere. No ANYTHING.

I haven’t seen them in a while. Maybe they’re getting old and less manly? I don’t know and I don’t rightly care enough to look. Their new album, “Hammer Of The Gods”, which is the first installment of “The Asgard Saga”, the band’s unique multimedia fantasy adventure with best-selling author Wolfgang Hohlbein, is tentatively due this fall. Sounds like it has potential to be a metal equivalent to a Tolkein-esque adventure!

This Thunder In The Sky EP will precede the full length. I hope the full album art will feature a pop out fist to crush faces with.
