Heavy metal veterans Manowar have announced that the ex-drummer Donnie Hamzik has rejoined the band. Previous drummer Scott Columbus hasn’t worked with the band since April 2008, although no official statement was ever made regarding his departure. Recently Hamzik has been working with the band in a sessional capacity as drummer. Apparently he has decided to rejoin the band permanently.
Manowar are currently in the studio re-recording their 1982 debut album “Battle Hymns” which is slated for release sometime in 2011.
