28 May When the Boss came to town…
In the land of true metal, there have been myths and tales about the oldschool metal monsters that hailed and killed..
“There was a punk who turned metal and owned the world like a Boss”
In an intimate venue in Thessaloniki, Greece, Ross the Boss along with the amazing Marc Lopes ( Let us Prey), Kenny “Rhino” Earl ( ex-manowar ) and Mike Lepond ( Symphony X ) joined forces and spoke volumes for themselves.
In a world where the metal scene thrives on the nostalgia factor, and metalheads insisting on an idealized view of the past, ( mychelf included and proudly guilty as charged ).
And it really was. Featuring the all time classic Manowar gems with a fresh approach by Marc Lopes, and a solid performance by the entire band , it was a night to remember.
The older tunes were done full justice yet there was something new and exciting thanks to Marc’s vocal delivery and stage presence, lifting the songs to devine heights.
There were no props, no costumes, no theatrics to steal the show. Just a guitar hero, an epic howler, a glorious bassist and a regal legent behind the drums.
What more could you ask for?
Some things never change.
Once a Boss always a Boss.
