Manowar Recruit Guitarist Michael Angelo Batio For 2023 Tour

Manowar have recruited guitarist Michael Angelo Batio for next year’s “Crushing The Enemies Of Metal” anniversary tour. He will be filling in for E.V. Martel, who is currently taking a break from live shows due to “personal reasons.”

Martel commented:

“MANOWAR, their crew, along with all the Manowarriors around the world have been really great to me from the moment I came onboard. I could not be more thankful for the good times we have shared.”

Bassist Joey DeMaio continued:

“We love and respect E.V. and support his decision. He is a true brother, and we’ll forever share unforgettable memories like playing near the Arctic Circle or in Mexico for the first time!”

“We’ve known Michael for many years and have always admired his work. His technique is astounding, When we invited him to come and jam with us we played together at the speed of light. Everything fell into place immediately. We’re ready for a killer tour!”

Batio added:

“I could not be more excited! I love metal more than anything, and it doesn’t get more metal than MANOWAR! I can’t wait to get on stage and play for the MANOWAR fans!”
