Very few bands take promotional photos the way Manowar has. The band proved they not only write about warriors, epic battles, and unbreakable kinships–they also embody it–using very little clothing, of course. Before Manowar, who would've thought there was an unsettling fine line between heavy metal and erotica? Even though Manowar is an undeniably awesome band, they've had some of the cheesiest photo shoots in music, showing more bare inner thigh than some struggling pop stars. The following is a friendly roast in Manowar's heroic honor. Enjoy.
In related news, the band just released a new live video of a re-recorded version of "The Heart of Steel."
