Ozzy has been a huge influence on Attica Rage’s music, song writing and live performance” comments singer/guitarist Jonny Parr. “’The Ultimate Sin’ album is often-overlooked and ‘Killer of Giants’ is such a stand-out track.  The anti-war lyric is still as relevant today and along with Jake E. Lee’s incredible guitar work and the haunting, vocal melodies, this is one of Ozzy’s best dark ballads. We enjoyed the challenge of bringing it into the 21st century and being able to pay tribute to our hero.”
