This week’s musician “behind the mic” is none other than a legendary guitarist, Ross “The Boss” Friedman. One can’t talk about genre-defining acts in the Metal scene without mentioning Ross who has written music history as a founding member of Manowar and The Dictators. His influence in Heavy Metal and also Punk is noticeable to this day. Manowar’s first six masterpieces, which saw him significantly involved, in between 1982 and 1988 are immortal classics today.

Since 2006 Ross again is releasing traditional and raw epic Metal which calls up memories of the Manowar masterpieces from the ’80s with its very own style. His latest release Born Of Fire is the fourth album of Friedman and his band with the album arriving on the scene not even two years after their chart breaking 2018 effort By Blood Sworn. Born Of Fire is pounding, yet fresher and heavier, than before, but isn’t lacking any of the typical Ross The Boss trademarks.

Ross “The Boss” is this week’s Guest DJ who’ll play some of his inspirational tracks representing some of the forefathers of Metal with a side of Blues. After Ross’ setlist, we’ll play tracks off Born Of Fire!

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

While you wait for Friday’s show enjoy a track off his latest Metal opus:
