Novinite.com reports that American heavy metal band MANOWAR has announced it will play Bulgaria's national anthem during its gig in Bulgaria's seaside town of Kavarna, 30 kilometers northeast of the port of Varna.
MANOWAR is scheduled to headline the third and final day of the annual Kaliakra Rock Festival on June 30. More than 10,000 people are expected to gather at the stadium in the town.
"The Bulgarian anthem is fantastic and when played with a symphony orchestra fits perfectly our style," singer Eric Adams commented, adding that this is a gesture of gratitude to their fans in Bulgaria.
There are more surprises in store for MANOWAR fans, one of whom will leave Saturday night's gig with the keys of a new car and another with a guitar.
MANOWAR's new double live album, "Gods of War Live" will be released on July 6, 2007. This over-two-hour-long manifestation of pure power will feature the entire set list of the recently completed leg of the "Demons, Dragons and Warriors Tour 2007".
MANOWAR's video for the song "Die for Metal" has been posted online at YouTube. Portions of the clip were filmed on February 24, 2007 in Bochum, Germany, during the release party for the band's new album, "Gods of War". Besides the fans, the video stars well-known German actor Tim Sander.
"Die for Metal" comes off MANOWAR's tenth full-length album, "Gods of War", which was released on February 23 in Germany (February 26 for the rest of Europe and April 3 for the USA/Canada).
