Manowar - Intro

Manowar are one of the silliest (and therefore, best) power metal bands to spring out of the 1980's. With some of the most ludicrous lyrics of all time, Manowar attempted to bring their brand of "true metal" to the masses, completely destroying the hair metal bands which dominated the mainstream at the time. It's like they saw "This is Spinal Tap" and thought that it was the most awesome thing ever (except for the fact that their debut predates that film by two years). The only constant members are singer Eric Adams and bassist/songwriter Joey DeMaio; other members have included Ross "The Boss" Friedman, formerly of the Dictators. Unfortunately, they never really made it in their native America, being mostly popular in Europe, but they're still together and as hilarious as ever (even if they claim to take their music completely seriously).
