That's Entertainment! ...Manowar Style
Say what you will about Manowar's bombastic (and often hilarious) "true Metal" posturing, it can't be denied that Manowar puts on one hell of a show. In one the best moments of their performance at the 2005 Earthshaker Festival in Germany, Joey DeMaio and company deliver an entertainment that would make Busby Berkeley green with envy--three drummers, an orchestra, a choir and three seperate guitar solos for just this one song. The only things missing are Eleanor Powell and a chorus line. What's even better is the fact that this was the finale to a show that lasted about two and a half hours. Manowar is nothing if not dedicated to their music and their fans, and you can't fault them for that.
