Guitarist E.V. Martel has been tapped for Manowar’s forthcoming “Final Battle” 2019 world tour. Martel will fill in for longtime guitarist Karl Logan, who will not be touring with the band after being arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.
E.V. Martel has performed for years in the only official Manowar tribute band in the world.
Tells bassist Joey DeMaio: “I can think of no one more deserving to play with Manowar than a fan themselves; one who has dedicated their entire life to our fans and our music and who he has proven to be a true Manowarrior!”
Adds E.V. Martel:
“I am honored beyond words to play for the greatest fans in the world! I live by Manowar’s message every day of my life: Believe in yourself and even your wildest dreams can come true!”
