He gathered the likes of Marty FriedmanMantas, Rasmus Bom Anderson (Diamond Head),  John Gallagher (Raven), Terence Hobbs (Suffocation), Snowy Shaw (Dream Evil/Mercyful Fate etc), Sonia Nusselder (Crypta/Cobra Spell ex Burning Witches), James Murphy (Disincarnate, ex Death/Testament / Obituary), Russ Tippins (Satan), Attila Vörös (Leander Rising, ex Týr / Nevermore / Satyricon), Marc Jackson (Acid Reign, ex M:Pire of Evil) and many more for ‘L’Uomo Di Ferro – A Tribute To Black Sabbath’.
