Bob has become an official member of heavy power metallers Firewind, the band of famous guitar virtuoso Gus G. and made his debut with them in their 3rd release “Forged By Fire”, already out in Japan through Toshiba-EMI with a release date for Rest Of World settled for January 2005 through Century Media.

Bob’s debut cd “Turn of My Century” was released in Japan following the success of “Imaginary Force” (entered BURRN! Magazine’s best selling cd charts for 2 months in positions 26 and 41), featuring previously unreleased video clip of “Scary Groovie” and 5 minute keyboard and guitar jamming/shredding by Bob, as well as new, amazing cover artwork made by Havancsak Gyula who also did the artwork for the latest Annihilator cd “All For You” as well as for their forthcoming DVD release.

Imaginery‘s second cd entitled “Long Lost Pride” is out in Japan through Avalon/Marquee records. Bob is now joined by two Swedish fellows, singer Bjorn Jannsson (Tears Of Anger) and bassist Olof Sundfeldt (System Shock) while drums are performed by producer Mark Adrian. This cd includes 11 tracks of Modern Melodic Heavy/Power Metal in the vein of Symphony X, Ark and Children of Bodom. European/R.O.W released will be handled most possibly by Lion Music, Finland. Guest performances/solos by Gus G, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged) and Michael Harris(Chastain).

Bob has just finished editing Nightfall’s first promo video (also directed by him) for the track “Swollen” out of Greek gothic-deathsters’ new cd entitled: “Lyssa: Rural Gods And Astonishing Punishments” where he has recorded keyboards and guitars as in previous release “I Am Jesus”.

Jeff Waters, guitarist and main man of the legendary annihilator, has confirmed his appearance in Bob Katsionis’ next, 3rd studio album. Also featured in this next release will be once again guitar master Marcel Coenen.
