DEATH DEALER: Part Of Of Tour Video Recap

DEATH DEALER, the new band featuring MANOWAR and the DICTATORS guitarist Ross "The Boss" Friedman alongside vocalist Sean Peck (CAGE), guitarist Stu Marshall (producer and guitarist for such voices as Udo Dirkschneider and Steve Grimmett), bassist Mike Davis (HALFORD, LIZZY BORDEN), and drummer Kenny "Rhino" Earl (MANOWAR), has posted the first video recap of the group's recently completed string of live shows. Check it out below.

DEATH DEALER kicked off its first-ever string of live shows this past Friday, July 5 at Ramona Mainstage in Ramona, California.

DEATH DEALER's debut album, "War Master", was released in Japan on June 12 via Rubicon Records and in the rest of the world on June 13 through Steel Cartel Records.

Priot to embarking on the trek, Ross said: "We planned to get together and do some dates for a while now and it is finally happening.

"I am ready to wreck some stages with these songs!

"I really look forward to getting the band together in the live setting. Not since the MANOWAR days have I been this fired up to jam.

"People are really responding to this record and this new group. The fans who already have the record have been posting some fantastic, real reaction to it. It has really been great so far."

"The DEATH DEALER sound is a mighty combination of five very talented, seasoned musicians," explained Ross. "It's classic power metal with the brutal edge of thrash, speed, and precision."

Formed last year via correspondence over the Internet, as soon as work commenced on the material, Ross knew he had met his metallic match. "Well, after they sent the first tune over, I was blown away, then Stu and Sean tell me they want me to join this band, called DEATH DEALER. I say, 'Who else is in the band? They say, 'Rhino on drums.' I'm in! Stu goes, 'It was either you or we would have asked KK Downing to be on guitar.' Wow!"

As evidenced by such tunes as "Death Dealer", "Never to Kneel" and "The Devil's Mile", for fans of authentic, no-holds-barred, manly heavy metal, "War Master" is an absolute godsend. And soon, DEATH DEALER will be converting metalheads worldwide to their cause. "Our future plans? Obviously to put DEATH DEALER on the worldwide metal map, and to engage large crowds and render them shocked and satisfied," said Ross.
