MANOWAR will once again march into battle in the name of True Metal.

This worldwide metal crusade will begin on June 2nd 2005 and will span the globe during 2005/2006.

This is more than just a tour this will be the greatest metal assault ever!

Italy’s premier symphonic metal band RHAPSODY will make their debut performance in America as MANOWAR’s special guests. Having achieved sales of more than 1 million records, known the world over for thrilling audiences with their unforgettable stage show as well as their very own style of “Film Score Metal” RHAPSODY have elevated symphonic metal to unheard of extremes. With their newest release Symphony Of Enchanted Lands Part Two – The Dark Secret featuring legendary actor Christopher Lee as guest narrator, RHAPSODY have risen to a new height in the world of metal and as the special guests of MANOWAR you can be sure that this will be everything fans expect from them and more.

Joining the fight to make this a triple threat is the newest signing to Magic Circle Music, HOLYHELL. This Pandora’s box of intense melodic power features the newest must hear voice in metal today Maria Breon. This is an all star band of master shredders featuring Joe Stump “The Shred Lord” known worldwide for his power metal style of playing and writing, who will burn down one side of the stage while being joined by Tom Hess, Chicago’s premier guitar demon who will unmercifully scorch the other side of the stage. HOLYHELL promises total metallic and melodic devastation with their brand of mystical, magical metal.
