Count Dante! Poet! Preacher! Pugilist!
Count Dante rushes the stage and starts punching and kicking with deadly thrust and pinpoint accuracy. After his display of awesome physical prowess, Count Dante starts to preach. He starts to proselytize his dynamic new system of success that has converted so many poverty worshipping indie rockers into MARTIAL ARTS MILLIONAIRES! And then to back up his bluster, The Count (joined by his Black Dragon Fighting Society) rips into aggressive classic rock anthems such as “Beware the Wonder Bra,” “Speed Queen,” and the FM radio standard, “Redwood City Rock City!”
Count Dante has risen to the heights of fame and toured the world as the announcer of San Francisco’s Incredibly Strange Wrestling. He was nominated for the 2001 California Music Award for Outstanding Bassist and even took the stage with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony. He has announced peep shows, boxing cards and beauty contests and now, with his band Count Dante and the Black Dragon Fighting Society, he shows you how to punch, kick and rock your way to success TODAY!
Dante’s debut disc “The Deadliest Man Alive,” documents all of the trials and tribulations that the Count has endured during his tireless march to the top. The Count’s relentless heavy rock attack belies his rigorous training! Such songs as “The Saddest Man in the World” and “Driven by Demons” chronicle the Count's pathos while the album’s title track and "Rockin' at Rocker Tonite" celebrates his ultimate tribumph.
"Deadliest Man Alive" caused The Santa Barbara Independent to muse: “Ever wonder what would happen if Bruce Lee, Tony Robbins, Henry Rollins, Gene Simmons, Elvis and Andre the Giant decided to shack up and have a child? Well, Count Dante is the closest thing to an answer." The Eugene Weekly (Eugene, OR) hailed: “straight up punk 'n' roll blow-by-blow delivery guarantees fist pumping action.” The Bay Area’s “Zero Magazine” describes The Count’s sound as “straight up, no nonsense rock and roll but yet it has the cutting edge punk attitude,” while Metal-Sludge.com remarked, “lyrically he has a message. What it is we don't know but it’s worth listening to.”
