“Manowar has a rich history in fantasy and mythology”, says Hi-Rez Chief Operating Officer Todd Harris. “We shared our vision for SMITE and decided to start with The Sons of Odin track with more music to come, including original compositions by Joey DeMaio and Manowar.”
Manowar is the world record holder for both loudest (broken their own record twice thus far) and longest live heavy metal performances (5 hours and 1 minute), has sold over nine million records to date and boasts a passionate fan-base known as the “Army of the Immortals” and "Manowarriors".
"We are very excited about this collaboration" said MANOWAR founder and bassist, composer and producer Joey DeMaio. "Metal fans and gamers have a lot in common and SMITE in particular totally connects with our music. We are looking forward to uniting SMITE gamers and Manowarriors all over the world."
Manowar will kick off leg 1 of The Lord Of Steel World Tour with first dates in Europe and the US in October and November 2012 celebrating their newest studio album "The Lord of Steel" (digital release on October 9, physical on October 19).
