actually the best mnusician Manowar ever had.

But why the hell does it say this will be released in 2012 when in fact the Single was already released in November 1983?

You beat me to it, I was just about to say exactly this! I think Scott Ian was the only member of the current lineup who played on that single... maybe Charlie too...

Charlie was also part since the beginning.

So is this a re-recording of two very early singles or a re-release?

either way, it seems a bit pointless

Just checked my 7" at home.
Charlie only drums on the a-side, the b-side was done by greg d'Angelo.

I had a feeling it was something like that. But yep, three of the members listed above as playing on this single, did not. Unless this is a re-recording of the single, but I have a feeling it isn't...

The line-up you see here is the one in the band's profile (so the most recent one). Just click on Fistful Of Metal and you'll see the same line-up beig mentioned.

Well, it doesn't mention Rob Caggiano, but it does say Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello played on it, which is of course false.

The line-up of an old album somehow adds all sorts of members

And as far as I know Dan Spitz isn't a member of the band at all anymore, so it is weird he is mentioned here if this were to be a re-recording.

I've just looked up, and the date and the lineup has been fixed, thank goodness. I was wondering what the heck was going on there!

aha that explains it. So you just filled in the month and not the year. Yep, and then it sets it to the current year.

Ya. I erred for the first time in this section. I realized it a few mins after the edit but you guys were too quick to notice. Inescapable embarrassment.:(
