Manowar Hell on Earth IV

Clearly, the DVD market is where Manowar are making their bread these days: take one look at the absolutely stunning packaging for this double DVD/bonus audio disc (containing one embarrassingly by-numbers new song) and be in awe. The DVDs consist of the usual chest-thumping, tittie-watching, cock-stroking bullshit that we love this metaller-than-thou band for. Seven and a half hours here (damn!), filled with fan worship, funny television appearances and tons of live footage. Amazingly, they're not a parody; they take this very seriously, and even if their tunes only walk the walk half the time, and even if I'm embarrassed someone will walk in as I'm watching this, we still love these guys.
