DEATHDEALER OFFER FANS KILLER WAR MASTER PRE ORDER PAK

March 28th, 2013
DEATHDEALER - War Master

DEATHDEALER – War Master

“Classic power metal with the brutal edge of thrash, speed, and precision.” A fitting description from guitarist Ross the Boss about his new project, DeathDealer. Comprised of Ross, as well as vocalist Sean Peck (Cage), guitarist Stu Marshall (producer and guitarist for such voices as Udo Dirkschneider and Steve Grimmett), bassist Mike Davis (Rob Halford, Lizzy Borden), and drummer Rhino (Manowar), DeathDealer will be dropping their debut full-length, ‘War Master,’ some time this summer.

The cover artwork was generated by Marc Sasso who has done previous work for Dio, Halford, and Adrenaline Mob, among others.  Close ups of this highly detailed piece can be viewed at www.marcsasso.com.

But for collectors that want to add a truly unique and special piece to their collection, the “Death Dealer Ultimate Warrior Pre-Order Pak” is the way to go. The pak will only be made available through the official Death Dealer website – http://www.deathdealer.co/site/store.htm – and will not be sold to distributors. For only 35 bucks, you will receive the following:

LINER NOTE SKETCH ART BOOKLET, WITH ADDITIONAL SKETCH ART FROM MARC SASSO [WHO HAS PREVIOUSLY WORKED WITH DIO AND HALFORD], DETAILING THE GENESIS OF THE COVER ART AND CHARACTERS. ALSO INCLUDED ARE LINER NOTES FROM EACH OF THE BAND MEMBERS WITH INSIDER NOTES AND COMMENTS ABOUT THE BAND AND SONGS, AND THE COVER CONCEPT SKETCH.

DEATH DEALER STICKER PAK, INCLUDING THE BAND’S LOGO, SYMBOL, AND A HI-GLOSS COVER ART DECAL.

DEATH DEALER PATCH – YELLOW ON BLACK FOR YOUR JACKET, VEST, OR HAT.

GUITAR PICK SET – THREE FULL COLOR GUITAR PICKS OF ROSS THE BOSS, STU MARSHALL, AND MIKE DAVIS.

PERSONALIZED HAND SIGNED BAND POSTER – MADE OUT TO YOU IN YOUR NAME, SIGNED BY ROSS THE BOSS, RHINO, MIKE DAVIS, STU MARSHALL, AND SEAN PECK.

FULL COLOR MINI POSTER OF THE COVER ART.

Additionally, the first 250 orders will receive a Death Dealer VIP full color tour laminate, so the band can easily identify the early adopters – the first of the faithful – so when the band sees you at one of their shows, you shall be treated accordingly! And as Sean explains, the pre-order pak will include some true one-of-a-kind items. “The idea for the cover was to create an image that portrayed power, venom, justice, and something iconic. Marc Sasso was nice enough to include other samples of the ‘War Master’ character in various poses and some other pieces of his magic for us to enjoy, so we included them in this sketch book and liner notes package.”

Stu – “The album ‘War Master’ really represents a true power and return to the days of bands being able to play live what goes on the album. Apart from being the best album I have ever been involved with, I am working with some of the most talented guys on the planet. I remember the excitement of the new metal album coming out, I think some of those days had gone over the last 10 years in the industry and now it’s time to bring it back.”
Sean – “Making this album with this incredible line-up of guys was just a freaking great time! I cannot wait for everyone to hear it. This album really has it all in my opinion, soon to be metal classic songs that are heavy, hook-laden, and packed full of lots of guitar, drum, and vocal fireworks. When you look at who is in the band, I think the metalheads out there will be thrilled to know that without any hesitation I can assure them that the album sounds as badass as they would hope and expect it to be.”

Mike – “Since I’ve been in both Halford and Dramarama for the past ten years and having put 100% into both bands, I’m extremely excited and looking forward to working with some new, very talented musicians who share the same passion for music, and ‘War Master’ more than stands on it’s own as a vicious greeting to the metal world.”

Rhino – “I am very excited about being in this band and getting this first album out.  I really feel at home with this line-up. All the guys really formed a bond as we put the band and album together. Recording and writing with Ross and the guys really flowed naturally and the results are amazing. I am really proud of everything about this record and it reminds me of the glory days of heavy metal. We all love metal and metal is or lives, and because of that, I know the diehards are going to freak out when they hear this record.”

Ross – “It’s been a long time since a CD like ‘War Master’ has come around. This is a great CD but only the tip of the iceberg for DeathDealer.”

MANOWAR- vocalist Eric Adams

MANOWAR

Eric Adams

Interview and live pictures By Marko Syrjala

Well finally I was able to have an interview with of one of my all-time vocal heroes – Eric Adams from Manowar. Unfortunately my computer crashed just one day before this interview so I had to try to remember all the questions just from my memory! Eric turned out to be really nice guy with a good sense of humor. We discussed about bands current activities, Eric’s personal life, the past etc interesting topics. I was even able to ask some KISS related questions so.. Read on!!!

EDIT: As can be seen this interview was arranged back in 2002. Because Manowar did not do any interviews and denied shooting shows during current LORD OF STEEL -tour we decided to re-release this oldie then…  Hope you like it!
