Italian guitar hero Dario Mollo's first band was Crossbones, which he joined in 1981. In 1986, after an appearance in compilation album "Metallo Italia" (1985), Mollo met english producer Kit Woolven (Thin Lizzy, Ufo), who produced his first album "Crossbones" (1989), featuring Don Airey (Rainbow, Ozzy Osborne) as very special guest on keyboards. This was the beginning of a friendship that has lasted ever since, culminating in his works known as The Cage. Don Airey joined Crossbones also on a tour across Europe (including an excellent performance at Hammersmith Odeon) and two videos for the album were released, filmed in a castle in Budapest. After leaving Crossbones to pursue other projects, Mollo opened his own recording studio (Damage Inc) in Ventimiglia (Italy), where he has worked with numerous artists as a producer and engineer, including Aldo Giuntini and Lacuna Coil. During this time, Mollo continued to write and record his own music and, after being introduced to Tony Martin (Black Sabbath) in 1998, released "The Cage" with him in 1999. Well received by critics and the public, Mollo and Martin released then two follow-up albums: "The Cage 2" in 2002 and "The Third Cage in 2012". In between working with Martin, Mollo also released two albums with Glenn Hughes under the name Voodoo Hill: their self-titled debut in 2000 and "Wild Seed of Mother Earth" in 2004. Mollo was also involved in Tony Martin's live band, "Headless Cross", played their first ever show on 27 July 2012, at Birmingham's Asylum venue. Dario Mollo is without doubt one of the most talented player/songwriters, "Crossbones" is his "first step", a class-metal gem still shines after more than 25 years, showing already his great talent and musical technique.
