“Respected metal vocalist Mark Boals has released his two album ‘best of’ collection covering his work both as a solo artist and with his band Ring Of Fire. Who’s going to be checking this one out this weekend? Stream or purchase HERE: https://orcd.co/allthebest
Doug Aldrich, Tony MacAlpine, Jeff Kollman, Neil Citron, Vitalij Kuprij, Vinny Appice, Virgil Donati, Erik Norlander, Chris Brooks, and Steve Weingart are musicians who have recorded with him on these efforts over the years. Boals is one of the signature voices of the Neoclassical Metal sub-genre. 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”, “Ring of Fire” (2000), and “Edge of the World” (2002). Ring of Fire is the band he launched in 2002.”
