WARNING: a “Hailstorm” is rising…it’s coming closer… arrival date: October 29th, 2010. And as ROSS THE BOSS vocalist Patrick Fuchs sings in the title tracks of their new album, this “Hailstorm” will be apocalyptic and devastating.
Well, in fact this storm will more build than destroy anything. On the foundation of their strong debut album “New Metal Leader” from 2008, the band around the legendary Ross “The Boss” Friedman forged a masterpiece of true heavy metal. Surely fans of MANOWAR will dig this, as ROSS THE BOSS continue where Manowar left off way more than a decade ago.
All trademarks are here: the epic, powerful tracks full of the special magic that only the masters are able to create, the bloodcurdling, passionate vocals and a mercilessly driving rhythm force. “Hailstorm” is the essence of pure metal, with Ross’ Rock’n'Roll roots shining through here and there (just listen to the party smasher “Burn Alive”). A majestic album with 11 strong tracks, no fillers. Starting with the anthemic “Kingdom Arise”, that breathes the spirit of Manowar classics like “Thor” and “Blood Of The Kings”, to continue with the incredibly catchy “Dead Man’s Curve”, the raw up-tempo banger “Hailstorm” and epic masterpieces like “Empire’s Anthem”… this album has it all.
With their second album “Hailstorm” now, the ROSS THE BOSS band shows unity, iron will, musical competence, lots of determination and even more heart. All hail the boss!
