Interview date: September 30, 2020

The band Death Dealer lead by Ross the Boss has returned for another heavy metal attack with their 3rd record Conquered Lands – to be released worldwide November 13, 2020, through Steel Cartel . The Band has an all-star Heavy Metal roster featuring the aforementioned Ross the Boss (ex-Manowar), Sean Peck on vocals (Cage, The Three Tremors, Denner/Shermann), Stu Marshall on guitar (Dungeon, Night Legion), Steve Bolognese on drums (Ross the Boss Band, Into Eternity) and newly added bass player extraordinaire Mike Lepond (Symphony -X, Ross the Boss Band).

Death Dealer is one of those great all-star lineups in Heavy Metal that have been firing on all cylinders since the first time they hit the big stage in 2013. The down time from Covid has allowed the band to polish up their 3rd release coming in November. Ross and Sean talk a little about their creative process, the importance of putting out physical product and a whole lot more in a chat with MER’s Bryce Van Patten.
