Manowar Play Longest Show Ever
2008-07-11 by Frederick Metzengerstein | 28 Comments

Ultimate heavy metal warriors Manowar set the world record for the longest heavy-metal show during their July 5 concert on the opening night of Kaliakra Rock Festival 2008 in Kavarna, Bulgaria. The New York–based metallers, who played for five hours and one minute on Saturday night, were attempting to break the three-hour record they set in 2007 at last year’s edition of the festival.

The self-described “kings of metal” performed over 40 songs for a crowd of 20,000 people, including specially invited representatives of the Guinness book of records

That's pretty impressive. Love these guys, cheese and all. Getting Orson Welles on debut album is pretty sweet.

Manowar is just the greatest band ever. Loudest band ever. Longest sets. Have performed with a 200 piece orchestra and symphony. Gives away free beer at festivals, give away their Harley's.

Other bands play, MANOWAR KILLS

The old record was 3 hours, was a whole extra two necessary?

Did that Manowar line of condoms ever come out? I totally forgot about that.

Pretty cool they could play a show that long without collapsing or something.

Because anything less would be decidedly un-metal.

To celebrate this achievement in metal, I'm going to go eat a 72 ounce steak, get drunk, and start a bar fight.

In 2004 311, although not a metal band, played 68 songs in 5 hours as well.

Not a pair of breasts anywhere? Dude, you need to get with the times. Manowar shows have mad pussy, it's a phenomenon nobody can explain.
