RELEASE - DATE : November 18, 2002

They still keep surprising you. For example, we are organising a contest and ask the band for some prices to give away. What's the answer : well, " the winner will be our support - act on the Mega Fanconvention next year ". I mean, WHICH band is doing things like this ? And then all of a sudden the phone rings : " our next single includes " Call to Arms " and I'm going to write 2 new songs for it " ..... You're speechless for a bit, because you've just seen the intense process of the making of " Warriors of the World " and than they go back into the studio and record 2 brandnew songs ! I'm listening now for 2,5 weeks to them and they just go on repeat in my stereo :

THE DAWN OF BATTLE ( 6:40 min. ) :

Yeah, I have to admit that these kind of songs are my favorite Manowar songs : fast, raw, aggressive.

" ... bravery calls my name ... "

The song hits in right away, faster than light ! Eric performs great again in this song, great guitar - lines. Brilliant part in the middle, when the song slows down, .... to continue more aggressive again ! " .... and I will fight, yes I will fight, in the Dawn of Battle ".

I BELIEVE ( 4:07 min.) :

This song gives you the feeling what you'll get when you listen to " Carry On " etc. A typical song you will scream your lungs out when they play this live. " .. say the words forever, your strenght will never leave. If you want to win the fight , say I Believe ! ". Mid - tempo song. The chorus is stuck in your head right away.
