Mark Boals - "Ring Of Fire" (audio)

Ο δίσκος των Mark Boals & Ring Of Fire - "All The Best!"
From the shadows of sorcerer's knights
To the wizard with jewels of light
Secret languages runes and spells
Ouroboros is well

From the alchemists immortal gold
To the elves with their powers untold
Magic weapons and armour blest
Will put you to the test
Prophets, sages through the ages

The celestial flame is burning
Ring of fire forever turning
The unquenchable desire
Born of wisdom in the ring of fire

Sword of Odin and Anvari's ring
Slayed the dragon as orpheus sings
As Prometheus fire first burned
Gifts of knowledge were learned

Chidambaram inside us will call
Flaming hearts are the center of all
The salori of mystical peace
Makes all ignorance cease
Prophets sages through the ages

The celestial flame is burning
Ring of fire forever turning
The unquenchable desire
Born of wisdom in the ring of fire

Mark Boals: Αμερικανός τραγουδιστής ο οποίος έγινε γνωστός στο "μεταλλικό" μουσικόφιλο κοινό λόγω της συνεργασίας του με τον Yngwie Malmsteen αρχικά στο ("μυθικό") "Trilogy" του 1986 κι εν συνεχεία στο (εξαιρετικό) "Alchemy" (2000) και στο "War to End All Wars" (2001).

Η μουσική του καριέρα περιέχει πάμπολλες συνεργασίες και συμμετοχές σε δίσκους, ενώ ξεχωριστό ενδιαφέρον παρουσιάζει η προσωπική του καριέρα, η οποία χωρίζεται (τυπικά τουλάχιστον) σε δύο περιόδους. Τα solo albums (ως Mark Boals - τρεις δίσκοι) και εκείνα του προσωπικού του σχήματος, Ring Of Fire (τέσσερα full length albums).

Η συλλογή "All The Best!", που κυκλοφορήσει τον προσεχή Οκτώβρη, καλύπτει και τις δύο πλευρές της προσωπικής του καριέρας. Το πρώτο cd την "Mark Boals" περίοδο και το δεύτερο την "Ring Of Fire"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Respected metal vocalist Mark Boals has announced a two album ‘best of’ collection, "All The Best!", covering his work both as a solo artist and with his band Ring Of Fire. Doug Aldrich, Tony MacAlpine, Jeff Kollman, Neil Citron, Vitalij Kuprij, Vinny Appice, Virgil Donati, Erik Norlander, Chris Brooks, and Steve Weingart are the list of musicians who have recorded with him on these efforts over the years.

Mark Boals is one of the signature voices of the Neoclassical Metal subgenre. This is no surprise to fans of the genre as Mark fronted Yngwie Malmsteen's 'Rising Force' in 1986, releasing the now legendary album “Trilogy” along with five more albums and some long-form videos over the years.

Mark has also recorded three solo albums: “Ignition” (originally released only in Japan in 1998), “Ring of Fire” (2000), and “Edge of the World” (2002).

In 2002, he launched his own band “Ring of Fire” (based off the title of a previous solo album) with members Tony Macalpine, and later on George Bellas, on guitar, Virgil Donati on drums, Philip Bynoe on bass, and Vitalij Kuprij on keyboards (and on "The Oracle" album George Bellas). The band went on to release four milestone albums and one live CD/DVD recorded in Japan.

Most recently, Mark recorded a melodic metal album with Vision Divine and Labyrinth guitarist Olaf Thorsen under the name Shining Black. Mark Boals is a classically trained singer and has performed classical concerts with various orchestras as a Tenor solo and has performed and recorded opera arias on some of his albums and tours.»

Mark Boals: «I am very happy and proud to announce the release of this collection of my solo and Ring Of Fire band albums! Included are songs from my first solo album, which was only released in Japan and is very hard to find (rare), with guitars by the great Doug Aldrich.

My second solo album turned into the band Ring Of Fire later on, because the lineup was too good to only work together on one album, and I wanted it to continue, which it did, for four more studio albums. With Tony Macalpine and Virgil Donati working together, there was a chemistry of genius, and with the addition of Vitalij Kuprij, it made a magnificent blend of magic!

On my "Edge Of The World" solo album, I worked with several other great musicians and a hero of my childhood and the best hard rock drummer in history, Vinnie Appice! When I listen to all those very high notes I had sang, and the incredible amount of virtuoso notes played per song, I surprise myself sometimes, hahaha!

We were all pushing ourselves to newer heights of excellence in those days. A lot of good memories come back when I hear these songs... Riding motorcycles around Los Angeles with Tony Macalpine and always ending up hanging out on the beach drinking beers til the wee hours...

Having Snoop Dogg in the next room of the studio we were recording in (Paramount Studios), and having him listen to our music and telling me that I needed to smoke something with him, LOL, and it DID help hahaha.

Recording keyboards in a Beverly Hills mansion belonging to a famous movie star friend, with Vitalij Kuprij, and drinking rare whiskey together after the sessions and talking all night... I really enjoyed making these albums and I hope you will enjoy just as much listening to them too! Wishing good times, good health, and happy listening to all!»

  1. Έχω χάσει επεισόδια εδώ και δεν έχω ασχοληθεί με τα προσωπικά του Boals. Με τι να ξεκινήσω;
