In concert, they play a cover of “The Phantom of the Opera” with Eric Adams of Manowar and Maria Breon on vocals. The band have since performed at Magic Circle Festival 2007, toured in Bulgaria and most recently appeared at Magic Circle festival 2008 performing their usual set as well as 2 songs from their as of yet unreleased debut album and a cover of Dio’s classic song “Holy Diver”.
