The first photos of HAIL! — the new all-star project featuring guitarist Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA), vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, BEYOND FEAR, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ICED EARTH), drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH) and bassist David Ellefson (F5, MEGADETH) — can be viewed below. (The pictures were taken at the studios of Chile's Radio Universo.)
HAIL! will be touring Chile January 22-27 for five very exclusive shows. Their setlist will honor their own genres of metal as well as the classic music that inspired their careers.
Ellefson states: "Metal music has been our life and even our livelihoods. So this will be a cool opportunity for us to perform some of our favorite songs together for the fans and pay homage to the movement as a whole."
Owens says: "Now this is about having fun with some friends, and just playing some fun, kick-ass metal! I can't wait to have a few beers with my friends in Chile!"
HAIL! is expected to perform tracks from MEGADETH, SEPULTURA and JUDAS PRIEST along with classics from AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE, METALLICA, VENOM and IRON MAIDEN.
