You could be forgiven if you overlook the small town of Auburn, New York. However! One contribution towers over all of the works of man dating back to the halcyon days of da Vinci…and his code! Then, as now, in the words of bassist Joey DeMaio, there was “a real lack of big, epic metal that is drenched with crushing guitars and choirs and orchestras.” Drenched!
In 1980 DeMaio was working as a roadie for Black Sabbath, and he was not satisfied! As Gabriel to Mohammed, so Odin did gave unto DeMaio a task! But it was too much for but one man!
Eric Adams! Joey DeMaio! Carl Canedy! Ross! The! Boss! MANOWAR!!!!!
