AAA
Band Manilla Road (A Tribute to Mark Shelton)
(Ex-) Misc Staff

Hi Friends,

we are happy to announce one headliner of KEEP IT TRUE 2019
Please watch the attached video of Bryan, Phil and Neudi first, then here is all the info you need:

Almost exactly one month ago we lost MARK SHELTON. He was an icon of Epic Metal and an idol for us all. The scene lost a genius musician, an idol and a friend to many. The fans were always the most important for Mark. He took time for everyone and had a good joke all the time. The sadness in the underground scene was all over, the condolences reached the level of Dio and Lemmy. Shortly after his tragic passing, Bryan, Ross, Neudi and I (Oliver) met at Neudis house and we cried, told stories and laughed on all the funny times we had together. In this moment we came up with the idea to do an epic tribute to him, which only could happen at KIT. We want to celebrate and honor the legacy of Mark Shelton with all his friends and fans. Thats why we thought about it a long time and only invited his close musician friends. Here is the list so far:

 

Guitars

  • Kostas Tzortzis- (Battleroar)
  • Kalli – (Masters of Disguise)
  • Gianluca Silvi- (Battle Ram, Doomsword)
  • Tann – (Ironsword)

Bass

  • Phil Ross (Manilla Road)
  • Jarvis Leatherby (Night Demon)
  • Leif Edling (Candlemass)

Drums

  • Rick Fisher (Manilla Road)
  • Randy Foxe (Manilla Road)
  • Neudi (Manilla Road)

Vox

  • Bryan Patrick (Manilla Road)
  • Tim Baker (Cirith Ungol)
  • Marta Gabriel (Crystal Viper)
  • Jake Rogers – (Visigoth)
  • Alexx Stahl- (Roxxcalibur, Bonfire)
  • Deathmaster (Doomsword)

maybe we can add another famous singer to this line up.

There is only one musician, who deserves to get a Tribute Show as the headlining act at KEEP IT TRUE: Mark Shelton. We will meet in April 2019 to hear these epic Manilla hymns one last time!! UP THE HAMMERS my friends!!
