No matter what people say, bigger is always better – especially when we’re talking heavy metal. And heavy metal doesn’t get much bigger than Fozzy. The band is the brainchild of Rich Ward and Chris Jericho, two larger-than-life, trailblazing personalities that have spent the past decade shaping their own brand of sonic splendour – Ward’s incendiary guitars forging a path for Jericho’s inimitable vocals atop a rhythmic foundation of earth-rattling proportions.
Not that anybody should be surprised. Rich Ward is one of metal’s pioneers – the mastermind of Stuck Mojo, he soldered metal with rhythmic rap vocals long before it became fashionable, touring the world with some of metal’s biggest bands and being hailed as one of both Pantera legend Dimebag Darrell and BLS / Ozzy axeman Zakk Wylde’s favorite guitarists. And frontmen don’t come more dynamic than Chris Jericho, one of pro wrestling’s biggest superstars, the embodiment of charisma, and the byproduct of lifetime spent immersed in heavy metal.
Fozzy have emerged as a worldwide force on the touring circuit, conquering stages from Los Angeles to Lichtenvoorde, and everywhere in between. And after their successful string of dates on the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar festival, their live assault has been captured on new release Remains Alive and issued throughout Europe in July 2011 by earMUSIC. The 2-disc collector’s package includes an Australian headlining concert recorded in 2005, as well as Chasing the Grail as a bonus disc.
Having spent the past decade sharing Chris Jericho’s attention with his iconic professional wrestling career, Fozzy is now the subject of the six-time WWE wrestling champion’s undivided focus, even earning the spotlight in Undisputed, his second New York Times best-selling book, and first to crack the Top 10, peaking at No. 8. Chris Jericho and Rich Ward have combined to sell more than 1.2 million records in their heralded careers, but those numbers are a fraction of the audience Fozzy were introduced to when their frontman made the Top 6 as a contestant on season 10 of Dancing with the Stars – one of the biggest television shows in the world.
Fozzy conquered prime time – now it’s time to conquer the world of heavy metal.
Let the madness begin…
