Another new band addition to ERR


Axel Rudi Pell - Biography - Taken from their website...

Axel Rudi Pell’s career began in 1980 with the band, Steeler, who sold over 30,000 copies of their commercially most successful release, Strike Back, and brought out their fourth and final album, Undercover Animal, in 1988. In November of that same year, Pell formed his own group together with Jörg Deisinger (ex-Bonfire), drummer Jörg Michael, bassist Thomas Smuszynski (ex-U.D.O.) and the American vocalist, Charlie Huhn (Ted Nugent, Gary Moore, Victory).

Their debut album, Wild Obsessions, arrived at the stores one year later, followed by Nasty Reputation, for whom Pell enlisted the American frontman, Rob Rock (M.A.R.S, Impellitteri), who was replaced during the subsequent German tour by former Malmsteen vocalist, Jeff Scott Soto.

With Soto as a new member, the third album, Eternal Prisoner (1992), was undeniable proof that the band had found their own, unmistakable style from the beginning. One year later, Pell brought out The Ballads, an album featuring his most accomplished rock ballads.

With Between The Walls (1994) and the live recording, Made In Germany, the guitarist from Bochum held on to his typical style even in the post-grunge era.  The subsequent Black Moon Pyramid (1996) was the second Pell album in succession to make the German album charts.

1997 saw the arrival of Pell’s eighth offering, Magic, featuring a thematically consistent concept about supernatural stories. Magic also entered the charts, followed by Oceans Of Time, the commercially most successful album at that time by the Axel Rudi Pell band, and the continuation of Pell’s ballad concept (The Ballads II, 1999).

Following the departure of Jeff Scott Soto, Pell enlisted American vocalist Johnny Gioeli (ex-Hardline) for the production of Oceans Of Time, The Ballads III and his 2000 release, Masquerade Ball. His characteristic voice also enhanced the subsequent releases, Shadow Zone (2002) and Kings & Queens (2004). Mystica, another exceptional recording, saw the band come full circle in summer 2006, and the double DVD Live Over Europe is the cherry on the cake in a long series of outstanding releases.

In between touring Axel realized his dream to record an album of coverversions, which saw the light of day in 2007. In spite of the fact that Diamonds Unlocked IS a coveralbum, it sounds like any other ARP record in the typical style.

The successful story continues with another outstanding record like Tales Of The Crown in 2008, followed by another European Headlining Tour in January / February 2009, which saw the band perform in nearly sold out venues everywhere. As Special Guest of the band “Heaven & Hell” (the ultimate reincarnation of a Ronnie James Dio fronted “Black Sabbath”) Axel, Johnny, Mike, Volker and Ferdy gave their best and played an awesome set of shows in June of 2009. Now the band will play their final 2 concerts of the year 2009 at the Rock Of Ages Festival and the famous Wacken Open Air.
