Manowar's Dawn of Battle EP, is a nice addition to my Manowar collection. It's only 2 new songs together with one of the best tracks from last years Warriors of the World. THe title tune, it probably their best track since anything off of Triumph of Steel album 10 years ago. It is fast, vicious, and has all things that we all love about Manowar!!!! It is truly destined to be a concert staple. I Believe, a bit slower, but really another molten slab of Manowar. Really, this EP, is a godsend. Because, I was very disappointed with WOTW, it let me down. But this 3 track EP, has regained my confidence in Manowar, and hopefully they can continue making "magic" metal like this again.
As for the bonus video features, if you already have the Hell on Earth Vol 2 and Blood in Brazil DVD, there is really nothing more to this CD. If you dont have that, then this CD gives you a few snippets of what you are missing. Pick that DVD up, the full concert (Blood in Brazil) is a Manowar lovers dream come true!!!! Hail - and - Kill!!!! Death to False Metal!!!
