Super Audio CD! - 2002-05-21 00:00

2002-05-21 00:00 - New MANOWAR album also available on SACD (Super Audio CD)

Again MANOWAR - The Kings Of Metal - prove to be pioneers in technology. MANOWAR will be the first heavy metal band ever to have their newest album "Warriors Of The World" released not only on CD and vinyl but also on the new audio format Super Audio CD (SACD) , developed by Philips who also invented the Compact Disc in the 80's.

As with the the normal CD "Warriors Of The World" this 5.1 landmark will be mixed by Ronald Prent who is also the Head Of Development for SACD in cooperation with Philips. The mix has been done in the famous state of the art Galaxy Studios/Belgium who have been partly designed especially to do these new format mixes in 5.1-sound quality. "This tremendous new format allows us to get the listener directly on stage or in front of the stage or wherever we want him to be, like a fourth dimension. To mix music in this new format is a very creative process - like a celebrated painter presenting his latest work to a master frame maker to encapsulate and get the best results from their work", says MANOWAR-Bassist Joey DeMaio. "We were very fortunate to have a genius like Ronald bringing our music to the people at Philips who instantly agreed on having him mix the album for SACD as well".

The album "Warriors Of The World" will be released on May 27, 2002 and features the German Top 15 Single "Warriors Of The World United" but also epic and grand songs like "Nessun Dorma" or "Swords In The Wind" where the whole potential of a SACD mix can be shown.
