Video footage of HAIL! — the supergroup featuring vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, BEYOND FEAR), guitarist Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA), drummer Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN) and bassist James Lomenzo (MEGADETH) — performing a cover version of the BLACK SABBATH classic "Neon Knights" on June 12, 2010 at the Sauna Open Air festival in Tampere, Finland with a special guest appearance by Marco Hietala of NIGHTWISH and TAROT can be viewed below.
Commented HAIL!: "If having DEATH ANGEL [perform the KISS classic 'Cold Gin' with us] wasn't enough — we also had Marco Hietala from NIGHTWISH/TAROT sing 'Neon Knights' with us again!
"We had a great time when Marco sang with us in Helsinki [on June 8] and the dude can w(hail!). He's a Finnish god so the crowd went bananas and he tore it up.
"It was an incredible night and everybody had a great time.
"What a wonderful way to say 'see you later' to Finland — friends having fun together the HAIL! way."
Added HAIL!: "The next time you see Andreas, buy him a beer and say thank you. This guy is seriously the ultimate road warrior. After our show at Sauna Open Air, he left at 3:00 in the morning, took a two-hour car ride to Helsinki airport, flew to Zurich, Switzerland, drove two hours to play the Greenfield Festival with SEPULTURA at 3:00 in the afternoon, walked onstage after not seeing the guys for a month and tore it up! ...and his day was far from over as he then drove two hours back to the airport to catch a 2:30 a.m. flight to Madrid, got to the hotel at 10:00 a.m. and played with us at Rock In Rio Madrid (then flew to Frankfurt to grab a train to Saarbrucken to meet up with SEPULTURA for the next two months!).
"Never a complaint or bad word."
"Hail! Andreas Kisser!"
