Hail Brothers and Sisters of Steel! The countdown begins!! July 18, 2009 is just around the corner and the reality of history in the making at Magic Circle Festival III reverberates like the crash of Thor's hammer on the gates of Asgard!

All Manowarriors know that the Magic Circle Festival is an unparalleled adventure famed for its innovations, destinations, creative themes and raucous heavy metal brought to you by the best bands on the planet. This year The Asgard Saga will come to life for the first time on the stages of Magic Circle Festival III through the book and the music that has resulted from a unique collaboration between MANOWAR and Germany's best selling fantasy author, Wolfgang Hohlbein. Thor, the God of Thunder, will be introduced to the world of metal with the legions of the faithful as the only witnesses.
