Hailstorm is the second album recorded by guitarist Ross "the Boss" Friedman and his German band under the moniker, "The Ross the Boss Band". It was released in the Fall of 2010 to positive reviews.[3] One reviewer stated, "Continuing commentaries across the web have been suggesting that both the former and present Boss albums are what more recent Manowar works should or could have been like."[4]
