April 20, 2018 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Bruce who? Ross The Boss, the man, the myth, the legend, has played key roles in the development of two of our beloved genres. First, his band THE DICTATORS were a standard of 70s punk. Then, the NY veteran switched gears in the 80s and entered the world of heavy metal by forming the mighty MANOWAR!! Despite these accolades, the Big Bossman has now spent the majority of his musical endeavours as just plain old Ross The Boss. […]

The band’s extensive discography does have some bigger, more well known albums. But “Symbol” holds a special place […]
