To describe it in one word, the Kings Of Metal MMXIV Fan Release Party in Bucharest, held on May 7 at the Silver Church Club, was intense. Between the festive listening of the album, the fantastic live sets by TROOPER & AURA, the fan competitions, and the raffle for the photo canvas, portraying Joey DeMaio during MANOWAR's latest show in Bucharest, time flew leaving us all with the sweet memory of a true metal night.
AURA, the Romanian Rock Chick, made a triumphant entrance on stage, riding a spectacular, roaring bike & went on like an energy bomb throughout the entire performance. She owned the place, with her voice, her tunes & striking look. The ending of her recital was as stormy as the beginning, as AURA live up to the challenge of becoming the first ever female singer in Romania to do live MANOWAR's anthem track - "ËœWarriors Of The World' . Needless to say everyone sang along & one thing is for sure, the girl is Rock Chick to the core.
Goes without saying that TROOPER's set was anticipated by all, since they are Romania's most acclaimed metal act of the moment. Their coming on stage unveiled a surprise which only comes to demonstrate again the band's versatility: if at the 2012 fan party they did a powerful metal set, this time they delivered an amazing acoustic set, which includes trademark tracks such as "ËœCourage', "ËœMaster Of The Wind' and "ËœHeart Of Steel', all interpreted in a manner, so vibrant that made hair stand on end...
The closing of their set was the perfect lead into karaoke, gracefully served by the instrumental tracks on the 2nd CD of "ËœKings Of Metal MMXIV' & enthusiastically embraced by the audience, which actually went on until the finish line of the event.
With this release party, Romania joined the chian of similar fan events, organized by fans from around the world, to salute the release of "ËœKings Of Metal MMXIV' Silver Edition. Similar gatherings have already taken place in Brazil, Germany, Bulgaria, Portugal, Greece, Spain and, very soon, will be the turn of Turkish Manowarriors to celebrate.
