"Our Army Of Immortals is growing bigger and stronger every day and many of them use Facebook regularly to get our latest news instantly and from the source," said Joey DeMaio. "There are of course many more true Manowarriors all over the world, that do not use the social networks. We have the greatest fans in the world and are proud of each and every brother and sister of metal that is part of our army!"
