The most powerful voice in rock is coming to Australia and New Zealand next April!

English vocalist Graham Bonnet is synonymous with classic hard rock and heavy metal.

Best known for fronting Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group and Alcatrazz, Graham’s voice is known and cherished by many. Having last visited our shores as part of the Countdown Rock N Roll Arena extravaganza he is ready to return with his all-star band featuring Mark Zonder from the legendary Fates Warning.

Graham scored several top 10 hits in Australia in the 1970's with his solo releases including the Dylan classic It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, and Warm Ride which peaked at number 1! He then joined Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, which was formed by Blackmore after he left Deep Purple. The Rainbow album Down To Earth (1979) was a top 10 worldwide smash hit with platinum singles Since You Been Gone and All Night Long.

Following Rainbow, Graham released his second solo album featuring the hit single Night Games, and then joined ex-Scorpion legend Michael Schenker in his band MSG for the album Assault Attack.

In the early to mid 80’s Graham formed his own band, Alcatrazz that featured an unknown Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar. The band quickly became a supergroup in Japan, and Yngwie soon left only to be replaced by another up and comer, Steve Vai, which propelled Vai onto David Lee Roth and future legendary status...

Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai…it seems Graham with his powerhouse vocals is the perfect match for these Guitar Gods!!

Since then Graham has kept busy in many bands, such as Impellitteri, The Party Boys, Anthem, Forcefield with Cozy Powell, Mick Moody and Don Airey, featured as a guest on countless albums and has also recently completed a sold out tour with a symphony orchestra throughout Eastern Europe with himself, Dan McCafferty from Nazareth and John Lawton from Uriah Heep.

He has also just finished a Japanese tour to sell out crowds with his solo band supporting Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock, featuring Herman Rarebell and Francis Bucholz from Scorpions and Doogie White. Graham has gotten up each night to perform songs from the MSG album he recorded Assault Attack.

Do Not Miss This Night Of Hard Rock Glory!

Graham will be playing all his hits from Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Alcatrazz and many many more.

A limited amount of VIP meet and greet tickets will be available, these will include a private acoustic performance, something to truly remember.

"HAMMER DOWN" - DEATH DEALER

 

 

"BREAK THE SILENCE" - DEATH DEALER

 

 

 

HARDLINE MEDIA is proud to announce for the first time in Australia/New Zealand - DEATH DEALER, in June 2016.

It's hard to argue with the pedigree of a band that includes members that worked with Manowar, the Dictators, Rob Halford, Lizzy Borden, Udo Dirkschneider,and Cage. And that's exactly who the members of the newly launched Death Dealer were previously associated with - vocalist Sean Peck, guitarists Ross the Boss and Stu Marshall, bassist Mike Davis, and drummer Steve Bolognese.

As evidenced by their debut album, 'Warmaster,' Death Dealer's mastery of authentic metal has been put to use straight away. "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."

In an era where computer technology is king, it was through the internet that Death Dealer was formed. Ross: "Death Dealer formed early 2012 when Stu Marshall and Sean Peck who had collaborated previously, met Mike Davis when on tour in California. Stu was blown away by Sean's vocal abilities and a bond was formed. Around February, Sean would send me messages on Facebook now and then, and Stu started talking to me as well. The conversation quickly went to, 'Hey Ross, would you like to play on some songs we've done?' I said sure, not knowing what it would sound like."

"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."

As heard on 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."

And according to Ross, fans attending Death Dealer performances can expect a set list that will draw upon more than just material from 'Warmaster.' "Death Dealer will play other tunes - especially some classic Manowar tunes that I have written. Also, you never know what cool rock n' roll tune we could deliver. This band is deadly serious, but humor and fun are a big part of our makeup."

Make no mistake about it, Ross the Boss has returned with a vengeance, as heard throughout the killer debut release from Death Dealer, 'Warmaster.'


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 band mates 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.

Steve Bolognese: Acclaimed metal drumming sensation Steve Bolognese began making waves in the hard rock/heavy metal music scene in 2005, playing with some high profile acts including Beyond the Embrace (Metal Blade Records), Into Eternity (Century Media Records) and Baptized in Blood (Roadrunner Records). Steve quickly became well known for his extreme versatility and technical ability on the drumset. Steve’s relentless touring schedule has taken him across the globe, making him increasingly popular among fans and musicians alike.
