Merry Xmas from Death Dealer!

We Three Kings



One of the best boat cruises for metal fans is undoubtedly Motörhead's Motörboat. And for this year's edition, Death Dealer has been added to an absolutely stellar line-up, which includes of course, the legendary Motörhead, as well as such renowned/heavy acts as Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Suicidal Tendencies, Hatebreed, and Corrosion of Conformity, among others.


Running from September 28-October 2, 2015, and setting sail from Miami to the private island of Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas, the Motörboat ups the ante on standard Caribbean cruise vacations with a 24-hour, face melting party for days on end, headquartered on white sandy beaches and the sun-drenched deck of the Norwegian Sky.

This jaunt along the Atlantic Ocean will also coincide with the release of Death Dealer's highly anticipated second full-length, 'Hallowed Ground,' which drops on October 2nd, via Sweden Music Group (SMG), with a hard-hitting video, for "Break the Silence":

Featuring members that have previously played with the likes of Manowar, the Dictators, Rob Halford, Lizzy Borden, and Cage, Death Dealer are a true heavy metal force to be reckoned with, and 'Hallowed Ground' certainly proves this.

The follow-up to their over-the-top debut, 'Warmaster,' features Sean Peck, guitarists Ross the Boss and Stu Marshall, bassist Mike Davis, and drummer Steve Bolognese, and as always, Death Dealer is setting out to convert the metal masses to their brand of manly metal.

And what better way to announce the arrival of 'Hallowed Ground' then with a killer all-metal cruise? Ross the Boss: "Death Dealer is absolutely so excited and pumped to be a part of this fantastic line-up! Plus, Lemmy is God and we all love him!”

The 13-track CD was mixed and mastered by Stu Marshall at Frontier Studios in Sydney, Australia, and contains massively epic orchestrations, speed metal anthems, and sing along headbangers, as well.

Fresh off a summer European tour, Death Dealer are primed to rock the world with their killer new album. Get ready to be rocked!

Death Dealer New Album!

Death Dealer has completed the mixing and mastering for our second album which will be released worldwide in 2015!  Lots of exciting stuff for the DD crew in the works including a return to Europe in July!  Also we will be announcing our new partner/label with whom which we are very excited about, but first a few quotes from the guys about the new cd.  "I think the fans will be stoked on this one." says singer Sean Peck.  "This one came together really easy and there is a big diversity in the songs once again.  There are some huge epics, some just blaze speed screamers, some mid tempo anthem rockers but no ballad this time ha!  Everyone did a great job and Steve's interpretation on the drums was so badass the stuff he came up with.  Stu was blazing, Ross blew us away with what he wrote and his performances and Mike just laid it all down like the pro he is.  We have previewed a few of the songs live and in private listening sessions and people instantly freaked, so get ready it is coming soon."  Release dates and tour dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed!  HAIL!

Welcome Steve Bolognese to the family!

Death Dealer would like to announce the addition of Drummer Steve Bolognese to it's ranks.

As previous drummer for Into Eternity and a Berklee College of Music instructor, Bolognese is often spoken of as the Drummer's "Drummer" having received mentoring from drum prodigy Mike Mangini (Dream Theater).

Steve: - "I'm happy to announce I have joined Death Dealer. It's been awhile since I've played such triumphant metal but it feels great to be back at it. It's amazing to be in a band with such talented musicians. I'm Really looking forward to working on this new epic material and hitting the road with it for all to see."

Ross The Boss- "I can't wait to hit the stage with Steve and record the next DEATH DEALER record. We have a lot of momentum right now and Steve was the perfect guy to fill the spot. We wish Rhino all the best going forward. We will all miss him."

Vocalist Sean Peck - "When we discovered Steve was interested in joining the band, I called him up and found out he is a true road warrior. We have a lot of tour plans coming up and he has been on some great ones. He knows the game and how to bend it to his will, no matter what the circumstances may be. Besides being a technical thrash master from hell, he is a funny dude and fun to hang out with which will make him a welcome addition to Death Dealer as we get ready to really blast off with a packed 2014 schedule! I couldn't be happier!

Guitarist Stu Marshall - While Steve has some amazing technical credentials, he has a strong foundation as a fan in traditional and true metal, he's a total monster behind that kit." Steve joins Death Dealer residing on the West Coast of the United States, close to Mike Davis (Bass) and Sean Peck (Vocals).

Bassist Mike Davis - "Steve and I have been jamming the Death Dealer set for a few months now here in Hollywood and it has just been ferocious! He was our targeted first choice when we knew Rhino needed to be replaced. We are just glad he was available and now it is time to throw down the gauntlet! Now that three of us in the band are located here in Southern California, it makes it everything we are planning and doing that much easier.

Death Dealer would like to wish Kenny (Rhino) Earl all the best as he departs the unit to spend more time with his family and concentrate on a career outside of music. He will always be our brother.

2014 brings the second "yet to be titled" Death Dealer album and the band is now writing the material for this release.

Wide scale touring is currently being planned with announcements to be made very soon.


West Coast tour Success!

Death Dealer just finished up their first four shows ever in California and Mexico and those who were lucky enough to share in the metal experience of a lifetime can tell you it was insane!  The band has compiled an astounding amount of footage, pictures and road tales as they embarked on this two week adventure that started in the jam room in San Diego. All of this is being compiled and prepared to be unleashed upon all of you great metal freaks while Death Dealer plans for its’ next tour and recording.  After several marathon rehearsals, the trip went pool side for some insane writing sessions, then out to Ramona for the debut show, down to see the rabid metal city that is Mexicali Mexico and 118 degree heat, and then to Holtville Ca. where the Beer and the BBQ were fantastic.  (The band jammed NIB from BLACK SABBATH that night too!).

The trip ended up with the band saying farewell to each other sitting in a booth at the famous Rainbow Bar and Grill in Hollywood after a blistering show at the Roxy with White Wizzard and all kinds of metal celebs and dignitaries who were  in attendance.  All in all it was a perfectly executed plan and our new fans were there with VIP laminates and all.  (They all got backstage!)  as we said from the beginning the band is a live metal machine and not a project and now we have been witnessed by the people we care most about…you!!  World domination plans are being set into motion so please tell another metal freak DEATH DEALER I BE NAMED!!  HAILZ!!

Death Dealer signs endorsement deals with ESP guitars!

Death Dealer, the new band fronted by former Manowar founder Ross the Boss, is excited to announce a partnership with ESP guitars.

Both guitarists Stu 'The Hammer' Marshall and Ross 'The Boss' Friedman have a long history with ESP.

Featured as a clinician for ESP guitars, Stu Marshall has completed numerous clinics for the brand in Japan, as well as in Australia.

On a recent promotional trip to Japan, Stu met with ESP artist president Makoto Suzuki in Tokyo to discuss the deal.

Stu Marshall states, "It's a great feeling to have Death Dealer associated with ESP guitars. I have a relationship spanning 10 years with the brand, and exclusively used my stable of ESP's to record the debut cd. ESP are working on a custom model for me which I can reveal is very aggressive and metal orientated. It's a very exciting time."

From Ross "I first started playing ESPs in the 80s when they were a small company based in NYC, located on the legendary 48th street. I was impressed by the super playability of the instruments, even easier to play then my vintage Gibsons. Since then, ESP has grown into the preeminent guitar company brand  for hard rock and heavy metal guitarists."

ESP guitars will be launching their newly labeled E-II guitars in mid 2013, with Death Dealer to be a featured artist of the new product.


Death Dealer

An unparalleled, awe-inspiring pedigree of pure power!

Ross the Boss – Sean Peck – Stu Marshall – Mike Davis


         As a founding member of both Manowar and the Dictators, guitarist Ross the Boss needs no introduction. But it's been a while since the metal masses heard from Ross, leading some to wonder if or when he would return. The wait is now over, as his newly formed outfit, Death Dealer, is ready to rock and take the world by storm, with their debut album, 'Warmaster.'

         "The Death Dealer sound is a mighty combination of five very talented, seasoned musicians," explains Ross. "It's classic power metal with the brutal edge of thrash, speed, and precision." And when he says the band is comprised of talented and seasoned musicians, he's not kidding, as Death Dealer also includes 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).

         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, '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, 'Warmaster' 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."

Death Dealer is:

Ross The Boss: Does this legend require an introduction? While with Manowar, Ross not only influenced legions of aspiring musicians, but he was also part of classic albums that have sold more than four million copies worldwide. In addition to releasing two acclaimed albums with the Ross The Boss band, New Metal Leader and Hailstorm, he recently toured with ex-Dictator bandmates as a member of Manitoba.

Stu Marshall: The Sydney, Australia guitarist/producer achieved fame as the lead guitarist for Dungeon. He is also the mastermind behind Empires of Eden, which led to his working such metal heroes as Udo, Rob Rock, Mike Dimeo, Steve Grimmett, Zak Stevens and many more.

Mike Davis: Making a name for himself as the ‘go to guy’ in his days with Lizzy Borden, so when the Metal God himself, Rob Halford, put out a call for bassists, producer Roy Z knew Mike was the perfect fit. Known for both his abilities and killer live stage presence, Mike was also Death Dealer’s first and only choice.

Sean Peck: One of metal’s most illustrious voices, Peck recently celebrated his band Cage’s 20th anniversary. Referred to as “The man of a thousand voices,” he has been compared to such names as Halford and Dickinson, and this assemblage of talent allows him to show off every part of his God-given instrument.

With the debut slated for an early 2013 release, these five will forever be known as
Death Dealer!
