REDD BARRON formed in February of 1987, in Romeoville, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago; Brian Lee (vocals) and Pete Alvarez (guitars), friends since their school days, formed the band with the intent of writing and performing the music they loved, classic metal. Rod Gardner (drums) and Rick Tampier (bass) rounded out the original lineup. After establishing themselves as a top Chicago live act, they added guitarist Greg Eichelberger. Later bassist Frank Masterson would join the band.
In 2018 Heaven and Hell Records would release a limited compilation CD consisting of all the band’s previously released material all remastered. That same year REDD BARRON would make their triumphant return to the stage performing at the annual ‘Legions of Metal Festival’ in Chicago.
Now REDD BARRON flies once again with a brand new album.

Catchy and surreal heavy "fantasy" metal with unique clean vocals, unfortunately I find myself only enjoying a select few tracks on each of the two full length releases so far. Save your doe and buy the song/s that you know you like is my solid recommendation.
