Beginning in 2012, the two metal veterans, along with new recruits Rich Marks and Jasin Marxx, will unleash their ground-shaking metal onslaught, War of Thrones!

Wade is no stranger to metal. For more than two decades, Wade has thrilled audiences worldwide fronting such legendary metal bands Crimson Glory, Seven Witches, and Leatherwolf.

Wade honed his songwriting skills in 2003, working with Rick to form Leash Law. Wade is the primary lyricist for War of Thrones and has conjured an unprecedented collection of twisted tales.

Rick released his searing solo album 'Until the Bitter End' in 2003, and went on to be one of the most highly sought-after guest guitarists in metal. His signature style can be found on the albums by some of the biggest names in metal.
