Former MANOWAR Guitarist's DAVID SHANKLE GROUP: New Concert Footage Available

Video footage of DAVID SHANKLE GROUP, the band led by former MANOWAR guitarist David "The Shred Demon" Shankle, performing on February 23 at Penny Road Pub in Barrington, Illinois can be seen below.

DAVID SHANKLE GROUP has inked a deal with Pure Steel Records. The group's third album will be released in the summer/fall.

"David Shankle has long been one of my personal faves," says Pure Steel's Andreas Lorenz. "For our label, it's an important step to get the confidence of a well-known artist like David. The new album is a hammer — I can promise already."

Adds Shankle: "I am very excited about releasing this new album in 2013, myself and the DAVID SHANKLE GROUP band have found true metal brothers with Pure Steel Records. This has allowed us to create an epic metal record."

A new DAVID SHANKLE GROUP song, "Ressecution", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

David was a member of MANOWAR from 1988 to 1994, playing on the epic album "The Triumph Of Steel" and co-writing "Master Of The Wind", "The Burning", "Ride The Dragon" and "Demon's Whip". David left in 1994, after countless sold-out tours all over the world, and attended Roosevelt Music University in Chicago to improve his jazz and classical guitar skills.

DAVID SHANKLE GROUP vocalist Warren Halvarson is a Chicago native who began his singing career in the mid-1980s while fronting a band called CRYSTAL AXE. Warren is one of the most respected and talented vocalists in the Chicago metal scene today. His range, power, clarity and dynamic stage presence are well known to legions of fans.

On bass is Mike Dooley, who grew up and lived entire life in or near the southwest side of Chicago. Currently the frontman for SLAYER tribute act HELL AWAITS, he was recruited this past May to dominate the art of shred with the DAVID SHANKLE GROUP.

DAVID SHANKLE GROUP drummer Gabriel Anthony is a true force in the music industry. Gabriel was so good that at the age of 17, he was already performing in clubs all over the Chicago area.

DSG's debut album, "Ashes To Ashes", was released in 2003 on Magic Circle Music. A sophomore effort, "Hellborn", followed in 2007.
