We are a bunch of musical war dogs, ready to hit the stage. Absolute power and renaissance, finesse & aggressiveness. It will certainly be a blast for everyone.”
David Shankle states:“My metal brothers in Wings of Destiny are a mega-shredding arsenal of music close to my heart. After collaborating on “Rise Above” we were all excited about joining forces to create a new unique metal machine. My composing and shreding style fit perfectly into this musical force, and I can’t wait to bring this demonic sound of power, speed and aggressive intensity live to metal fans everywhere.”
