Vision


Lineup:


Klaus Opree (vocals)
Ronny von Assel (guitar)
Heinz Weisbarth (bass)

Band-info:

Bonn's Vision originally formed as Fractured Mirror, initiated by Ronny von Assel and Heinz Weisbarth during 1978. Klaus Opree a little later on was forced into the band as vocalist, when he accidentally rehearsed AC/DC songs with the guys. The musical influences of all of the members could be seen from Kiss, AC/DC, Accept etc. The guys though changed name to Vision in the early 80's, while Opree and von Assel joined locals Stainless during 1983, who somehow would then become famous as Trans Am.

Band-info:

Fractured Mirror was a local Hard Rock band from the Bonn/Cologne area, initiated by Ronny von Assel and Heinz Weisbarth during 1978. Klaus Opree a little later on was forced into the band as vocalist, when he accidentally rehearsed AC/DC songs with the guys. The musical influences of all of the members could be seen from Kiss, AC/DC, Accept etc. The guys though changed name to Vision in the early 80's, while Opree and von Assel joined locals Stainless during 1983, who somehow would then become famous as Trans Am.

Trans Am


Lineup:


Klaus Opree (vocals)
Thomas Schumann (guitar)
Ronny von Assel (guitar)
Ingo Kraus (bass)
Michael Schell (drums)

Band-info:

A Hard Rock band from our ex-capital Bonn that was founded by ex-Fractured Mirror/Vision/Stainless Klaus Opree, Ronny von Assel and both ex-Throne members Thomas Schumann and Michael Schell in May '85. Already one year later the guys released their first vinyl privately on their manager Bernd Gelhausen's (ex-Cutty Sark manager) label Bernie Productions. Originally planned as just a Demo tape, but the lads was that satisfied with the recordings that they was risking the hard way to press vinyls of it. The 12" sold that well in their area that the guys got offered contracts by EMI and Ariola for a fullenght, but due to the conditions they refused these and released all of their future albums on their own label to keep the control without being financially addicted to any label bosses. On the "Fasten seatbelts" album Chris Hoppe had replaced Ingo Kraus on bass guitar and Mike Viebahn on the "Give a little" 12" '89 was handling the second guitar instead of Ronny von Assel (who formed his own band Black Jack), while the same is still audible on "Fasten seatbelts". Their farewell album was the "Unlimited" live LP from 1990. Musically right from the start Trans Am, although personally being influenced by mainly 70's Hard Rock bands, stepless developed their own powerful Hard Rock and Heavy Metal style to a maximum, that was quite a refreshing moment for a more or less private local band, because the guys was playing on a pretty high professional level. It's definitely not a mistake to check out their vinyls, starting with the superb "We want Rock'n'Roll.

Stainless


Lineup:


Klaus Opree (vocals)
Ronny von Assel (guitar)
Guido Robenek (?)
Willy Schwäbig (drums)
Wolfgang Mirbach (bass)
Andreas Rothe (guitar)

Band-info:

A band from Bonn, that featured later musicians of Trans Am and Forced Entry/STS 8 Mission. They started out as a threesome in September 1980 under the name ROSTFREI ("Stainless" in German), featuring Willy Schwäbig on drums, Wolfgang Mirbach on bass and Andreas Rothe on guitar. In 1983 Klaus Opree and Ronny von Assel (who both was previously playing in the bands Fractured Mirror/Vision) joined on vocals and solo guitar respectively. This is also where the band changed direction into the field of Heavy Metal and adopted the name STAINLESS. What's left of them is a Demo tape from 1984, featuring the 3 live trax "Stainless Heavy Metal", "Man of the universe" and "We rock". The sound is pretty good and Klaus Opree was a born entertainer on stage, heating up the crowd to the maximum. Except of the uptempo banger "We rock" that's somewhere in the vein of Mad Butcher and Future Tense, the other trax did feature typical mid 80's German Metal like Sacrafice or Arrow, but at least one level higher. If my tape is original, then the Demo had no booklet or any songitles mentioned. There's just Stainless written on a regular tape inlay and nothing else. The band just lasted from 1983-85 and Klaus Opree as well as Ronny von Assel subsequently formed the more successful Trans Am. Willi Schwäbig went heavier paths and joined Forced Entry. If you got more info, please get in touch.

Black Diamond


Lineup:


Gerhard Fitting jr (guitar, vocals)
Frank Heeb (guitar)

Band-info:

Not to be confused with the better known band from Herten, these Black Diamond was originating from Alzey, south of Mayence and could be seen as the pre-stage of what later would become the Black Metal band Antichrist, that both Gerhard Fitting and Frank Heeb launched in June 1984. So we guess Black Diamond was active at around 1983/84. Despite Black Diamond/Antichrist's low musical level, Frank Heeb later after a short attempt with Fanatic (1987), resurfaced in Mayence Thrasher's Races, whose technical skills was way more sophisticated.

Races


Lineup:


Richard Meier (vocals)
Ronny Uebele (guitar)
Frank Heeb (guitar)
Horst May (bass)
Andy Beyer (drums)

Band-info:

A Power Metal band from Mayence that started in May 1987, with Frank Heeb who came from the short lived Antichrist/Fanatic. Their first output was a 2 tracker, recorded late '88 in their Rehearsal room, featuring the classic Metal smashers with NWOBHM touch "Burning bridges" and "Beginning of a nightmare", followed by 4 track live tape "Beginning of a nightmare" 1989. On the 3rd tape "Welcome to Amityville", recorded by Richard Meier (vocals), Frank Heeb (guitar), Rene Tornier (guitar), Peter Schleutner (bass) and Andy Beyer (drums), again 3 tracks of the live tape was featured plus 2 new studio trax, that offered some first thrashy tendencies. And those got even more in the foreground on their last Demo "Seed of destruction" that's a ruthless mix of Power Metal and Thrash and without doubts their best release. The last line up consisted of Rene Tornier (bass), Andreas Schmitt (drums), Frank Heeb (guitar), Richard Meier (vocals) and Stefan Leitner (guitar) an ex-Amoreen member. The band lasted till 1995 when most of them formed Sharkrage.

Antichrist (Mayence)


Lineup:


Gerhard Fitting jr (guitar, vocals)
Frank Heeb (guitar)
Andy Werner (bass)
Olli Keil (drums)

Band-info:

Antichrist was a rather low skilled Black Metal band from Alzey, south of Mayence. Formed in June 1984 by Gerhard Fitting and Frank Heeb, who formerly played together in a short-lived formation called Black Diamond, they only lasted until 1986, but the lads recorded 2 Demos during that time. The better known of both, "Slaughter in hell", features pretty ugly primitive Punk Metal, sometimes comparable in places to earliest Outrage songs. The bad vocal performance didn't help at all to make the tape sounding better. A Gerd Weigelt replaced Oliver after the first Demo. Frank Heeb later in 1987 was member of Fanatic and subsequently joined Mayence Thrashers Races, before he revived Antichrist once again in 2003. In spring 1990 the "Slaughter in hell" Demo got re-released with additional 4 new songs and the bonus track "Lucifer is good".

Stefan Heintzelmann

Band-info:

A Metal band that was originating from Alzey (south of Mayence), and was active during 1987. Stefan Heintzelmann was previously playing with Depression from Worms and their guitarist Frank Heeb should be known from Black Metallers Antichrist. Fanatic most probably was just a shortlived project, coz Heeb still in 1987 would team up with the band Races from Mayence. If you got more info, please get in touch.

Falcon Prey


Lineup:


Eduard Keller (vocals)
Helge Rühl (bass)
Ralf Deutscher (drums)
Bernhard Stöcker (guitar)
Lars Niedereichholz (keyboard)

Band-info:

Probably since the Hammerschmitt LP didn't get so well reviews by the german press, Eduard Keller and Ralf Deutscher (ex-Booster, both ex-Hammerschmitt) joined Falcon Prey from Oberursel, near Frankfurt. The band was originally founded by Alex Weckler (guitar) and Helge Rühl in November 1985. Deutscher already joined the band in March '86 and Bernhard Stöckler plus Eduard Keller in August. Last one to join was keyboarder Lars Niedereichholz. And indeed that band was a step forward musically with it's epic yet melodic Power Metal. The 3 Demo songs sounded pretty contemporary, slightly Maiden influenced (Seventh son era), almost ahead of their time as many bands from around 1989 adopted that sound as well. This demo was also "re-released" as part of a split-tape with (of all possible, random bands) the fem-fronted UK post-nwobhm band Siege a few years later and distributed by the Belgian Skullthrasher Promotions tape-label. There is another recording with 4 more tracks known (seems not official), that fully continues that melodic way, with epic refrains and slightly more pounding beats a bit more influenced of glammy US bands. By this time, Manfred Reckendorfer (a.k.a. Freddy Astor) formerly of the Austrian familiars Blowin Free had replaced Ralf on drums and Gerhard Konieczny from Renegade had replaced Bernhard on guitar.

Mother's Little Nightmare


Lineup:


Robert Chappel (vocals)
Floyd (guitar)
Frank Manthei (guitar)
Ralf Günther (bass)
Drummi Diekhoff (drums)

Band-info:

Founded in West Berlin 1986 by guitarist Floyd, it took him till late '87 to get a steady line up together with Nasty Ritchie (guitar), Bobo Kuszek (b), Mike France (drums), that could meet requirements for his musical vision to celebrate american style glammy Hard and Heavy Rock. September '87 after most of the guys on the left side had left or got to go already and Floyd being alone together with Robert Chappel, the duo recorded the Demo song "Princess of tears" to search for a management. In the end they reformed Mother's Little Nightmare with the above mentioned Nasty Ritchie, Bobo Kuszek and Mike France and recorded another Promotape in early '88. Once again the drummer position changed in June '88, when the later S.A.D.O. drummer Danny joined. The band's first album was originally planned to be released 1988 already, but due to the record company could be eventually recorded during December '88 and got finally released the following year, without Nasty Ritchie though, who left already before the material was recorded. The selftitled album features material between Faster Pussycat, early Guns 'n Roses, AC/DC, basically american Glam style Hard Rock. In the mid 90's after several line up changes the band split up once and for all.

Pride


Lineup:


Uwe Ertelt (vocals)
Peter Franke (guitar)
Frank Becker (bass)
Jörg Dmoch (keyboard)
Greg Ruhl (drums)

Band-info:

Pride was a Melodic Metal band from Dortmund, that featured the former Chronos singer Uwe Ertelt and published a 2 track 12" on an indie label (probably their own) in 1990. "Ruins of broken hearts" and "Fallin' in love" both feature pretty good, not extremely heavy but melodic Metal with keyboards in the background. The only thing that might leave a bad aftertaste was Ertelt's voice. Not that he completely failed to do his job, but his voice was questionable for that kind of Metal imo. Nevertheless, a nice addition to each underground German Metal collection, as these guys knew how to play their instruments. As a side note, Uwe Ertelt was working for the german Rock Hard magazine.

Rough


Lineup:


Anny Wichardt (vocals)
Ernst Schläfer (guitar)
Rainer Portugall (guitar)
Martin Albrecht (bass)
Michael Kaiser (drums)

Band-info:

Rough was a female fronted Metal band from Mayence, that could at least release one album for Steamhammer before they dropped the band again, but the lack of quality couldn't be the reason of it at all, coz "First cut" delivers above average Heavy Metal refined by the vocals of the blond eyecatcher Anny Wichardt (since 1985 part of the band), who could call a great voice their own. The bands mainly pounding style reminds slightly of later Warlock with a little note of japanese bands such as Loudness and either US american hints like Dokken and such. Originally Rough during 1985 signed a contract with star producer Dieter Dierks, who had big plans for the band and wanted them to push into a more commercial corner, but after almost 2 years of no album in sight, the band cancelled the deal and recorded their "First cut" album during March '88 for the Steamhammer label, which got a perfect production with sheer power almost soaking out of the speakers. Anny Wichardt left the band 1989, but the guys found with Simone Schönbach yet another female vocalist still early '89 and after a tour with Axxis started pre-producing their second album, while early '90 the band again searched for a new vocalist. There also was 2 Demo tapes released by the 1981 founded band prior to the album in the mid 80's as well as their farewell Demo just entitled "Rough" in 1991.

Fortress (Mayence)


Lineup:


Mark Dusan (vocals)

Band-info:

Heavy Metal band from Mayence that formed in autumn 1981 and is known to play live shows since at least 1985. Their californian vocalist Mark Dusan left Fortress in late 1988, but still sung on the band's 2 track Demo from 1987, that delivered fast Metal with slightly party feeling. Early 1990 the guys had not found any replacement for Dusan yet. If you have more info please get in touch.

Lineup:


Carsten Zech

Band-info:

6 guys from Bischofsheim/Mayence launched Snow Donia already during 1986 and the band was known to perform live on stage quite often in their area, which granted them special musical experience. A 2 Track Demo was recorded around 1989/90 featuring material comparable to Bon Jovi and Autograph and either the track "Out for love" made it on the local scene compilation "Mayence Rock '90". Further info is welcome.

Seven Wishes


Lineup:


Alex Müller (vocals, guitar)
Frank Olbrich (guitar)
Claus Doll (keyboard)
Michael Bürstner (bass)
Joachim Doll (drums)

Band-info:

A Karlsruhe based Melodic Metal band active since late summer '86, that evolved from the ashes of Brainstorm. 2 weeks later the lads played already their first gig and soon made it on second rank of a local newcomer contest in November the same year. Their first Demo ”'s heaven vicious?” was produced in 1987. The tape features 4 songs of well executed melodic mainly midtempo Heavy Metal, even using keyboards and not to forget to mention the formidable axework. Despite the keyboards used, that's no poppy stuff here at all, except for the last track perhaps. Their main influences came from US american bands. The track "Carry on" appeared on the Break Out compilation LP and the band had good rankings in several local band contests. Inline Music then signed the band and produced one more Demo during 1989/90 to land a record deal at any bigger label. Since that undertaking didn't succeed, 1992 the guys once again tried with a another Demo called "Never enough", but vanished from the screen afterwards.

Energy


Lineup:

Rudy Kronenberger (guitar)
Frank Rittel (bass)
Peter Szigeti (guitar)
Olly Kliem (drums)

Band-info:

Energy from Düsseldorf was the pool for musicians from the Düsseldorf area that was previously active in Stormwind, U.D.O. and Warlock. Frank Rittel and Peter Szigeti was playing together since 1980 in Snakebite and later in Warlock. Energy was founded in summer '88, after Stormwind dissolved and Rittel and Szigeti left U.D.O. Harry Amthor came from Forced Entry, who just changed name to STS 8 Mission. The guys recorded 3 Demo tapes till 1991 that didn't led to any record deal at all. Harry Amthor joined Tarot and Szigeti tried with Velvet Viper. By all the prominent bands the guys did play with, you can imagine that Energy's kind of Metal was close to the aforementioned acts, settled in the beginning in the midtempo, but right with the second tape got much more varied, yet kept their melodic edge nevertheless.

Pharao


Lineup:


Reinhard Lehmann (vocals)
Michael Jurischk (guitar)
Frank Müller (drum)
Fred Ullmann (guitar)
Christian Dallmann (bass)

Band-info:

Pharao is in a way the continuation of Regenbogen/Countdown, as after Andreas Schwendemann of the last Regenbogen line up left the GDR, Reinhard Lehmann (ex-Plattform), Michael Jurischk (ex-Plattform) and Frankie Müller started with Pharao early 1986 in East Berlin (ex-GDR). The band got completed by Fred Ullmann (later in Defcon/Chor Chorea) and Christian Dallmann. They recorded "Feuer der Liebe" and "Reich der Finsternis" for the national broadcast service in fall of 1986 which proved them to set the standard for other Metal bands quite high. Pharao played way heavier than Regenbogen, a midpaced melodic Power Metal with small hints of Helloween and Jackie Lehmann proving that he's one of the best singers in the Republic while the axework was simply brilliant. The 2 songs got airplay at the national radio stations and even an appearance for the Live Beatkiste (a kinda hitparade radio show by listeners voting every thursday, that in the second part played Heavy Metal) followed featuring "Metal Baby" and "Geboren im Feuer". After Formel 1 disbanded the ex-Formel 1 members Detlef Dudziak (bass) and Michael Sündermann (guitar, ex-Mephisto) replaced Ullmann and Dallmann in 1987. Michael Jurischk left in 1987 as well to join melodic Hard Rockers Charlie. Pharao got invitations to appear in the national TV music shows in 1988. But then they decided to only use english lyrics and the eastgerman culture bosses ended co-operation with the band. This whole crap ended in the situation that after getting offers from outside GDR to produce a full album, the government hindered them to answer those requests. Sundermann (he joined B.O.R.N.) and Dudziak left Pharao in late 1988 due to that and got replaced by Rainer Schmidt (guitar) and Thomas Rohrich (bass), who got briefly replaced by Frank Kube. The band recorded a 3 track Demo in 1989 with songs from the later album but in much heavier and more unpolished sounding versions than on the album, that just screamed the word Power Metal from all of its pores. In early '89 Amiga tried to contact the band again for a possible LP release, but demanded german lyrics. Lehmann denied and escaped from the GDR in mid '89 and organized Pharao a record deal in Stuttgart where he re-located. The other members followed him after the fall of the wall and they started recording the "Bad boys from east" album for Gama records in 1990 with Jackie Lehmann (vox), Rainer Schmidt (guitar), Frank Kube (bass) and Frankie Müller (drums). The album was released on CD and Vinyl while the LP version for a strange reason was only available in Italy. But their luck didn't last much longer, due to legal problems with Gama the band had to quit and after a last show with Dan Uhden on the second guitar they disbanded in 1991. Lehmann would join Sanvoisen and later went back to Berlin to form progressive Power Metallers Resistence with former Tarot members and Franky Müller. "Bad boys from east" still up till today is a prime example of how melodic Power Metal has to sound like.

Band-info:

Originally starting as Heavy Metal band, the Duisburg rockers Typhoon was active since already 1984 and reached the peak of their musical career during 1989, when Typhoon's sound offered commercially influenced Melodic Metal like heavier Europe. The guys was known for their tight stage acting and the vocal performance of their shouter Stefan Werner. With the fall of the 80's and beginning of the 90's, the band's sound moved into slightly more US Sleaze/Hard Rock fields, while Scare Records from Duisbug produced their MCD "Sometimes" in 1992, featuring new members Gilbert Steffan (drums) and Jens Veerbeck (keyboard). Their only album "Meteorology" was independently produced by the band and published on Rockwerk Records in 1993. Thomas Stracknein on this album was the band's new drummer. They most probably called it a day during the mid 90's as well. If you got more info, please get in touch.

Band-info:

The Musty Guts was an extreme Thrash/Deathcore troop from Herten in the Recklinghausen/Gelsenkirchen/Marl triangle, that featured Eternal Dirge members Karsten Böhnke and Patrick Kalla. The band formed during October 1987 still with Markus Kokkert behind the drums and recorded their only Demo "Maggot assault", now with Oliver Hermann as drummer) the following year, featuring a brutal Thrash assault with early Death Metal influences, reminding slightly of Protector and mainly all those extreme brazilian Thrash bands of that era. When Kortboyer left the band in 1990, Karsten Böhnke (Eternal Dirge) took the bass. But somehow the Musty Guts didn't really record more Demos it seems, while they've been playing live during that time in their area before they called it a day later in 1992. During the last year of existence Olaf Walinger replaced Golly (Andreas Georgiadis) on the guitar. Further info is welcome.

Baphomet


Lineup:


Thomas Hertler (vocals)
Gernot Kerrer (guitar)
Michael Heckel (bass)
Manuel Reichert (drums)

Band-info:

Thrashers from Bietigheim-Bissingen who formed already during 1986, and after recording 2 Demo's got signed by Massacre Records.The first tape was still recorded with Michael Heckel on bass in July '88, but he quit during that period and the lads added with Stephan Späth a second guitarist instead to record the "No answers" tape in September the following year. Bass lines was added by Giovanni Soulas of the band Ivanhoe. During 1990 Baphomet recorded their debut album "No answers" already without the just recently added Stephan Späth as a trio with additional help by Poltergeist bassist Marek Felis and could finally present their new steady bassman Hansi Bieber when the album was available. "No answers" didn't sound nearly as furious as the band's previous Demos at all and the slightly stylistical change by trying to add more technical, progressive elements didn't fit their raw Thrash style so well. Nevertheless, it seems to have been enough for Massacre Records to produce one more album of this band, which was entitled "Latest Jesus" and was available in 1992. The Baphomet guys didn't turn away from their common Thrash style and offered this time an a bit more grown album, with either melodic influences, though fully following their previous direction with just better done vocals than still on "No answers", reminding in places slightly of a melodic version of Morbid Saint. After another slightly modern sounding Thrash album ("Trust") 1994, Thomas Hertler quit and Jens Sonnenberg (ex-Zadok/Cavillator) took his place for about a year till Baphomet split up in 1995.

Band-info:

Pyracanda was a Thrash Metal act from Koblenz that formed in 1987 with ex-Dark Satan Rolf Koch, Dirk Pützfeld, Elmar Gehenzig, Sven Fischer and Dennis Vaupel, who recorded the band's only Demo tape "Welcome to the Crab-Louse-City" in 1988. Dieter Wittbecker (bass) and Hansi Nefen (vox) replaced Koch and Pützfeld right after the Demo, that caught interest of No Remorse Records, who after yet another privately recorded 4 track recording, that the band made especially for Charlie Rinne, signed the fivepiece. "Two sides of a coin", their debut album, was available in 1990 and features refreshing technical Thrash with melodic tendencies and could be stylistically labeled as a cross of Testament, Paradox and Toranaga. The next 2 years till the follow up album "Thorns" in 1992, the band's style slightly changed towards these melodic Thrash hints of the debut and the lads dived more into that kind of Power/Thrash sound with similarities to Metal Church, without denying their early Thrash roots at all. But still in 1992 the band changed name to Ilex, when Elmar Gehenzig and Sven Fischer left. The latter joined Rage still in the same year.

Ingo Frickel (bass)
Achim Wüst (drums)

Band-info:

A Heavy/Speed Metal band from Andernach that was founded in 1988 with ex-members of Vötca, Vendetta (from Andernach), Nytemare and Flennes. Bernd Böhr (drums) replaced Achim Wüst still in mid/late 1989. When first Major companies started to show interest in the band after the astonishing "Kick ass city" Demo 1989, either Bernd Röhr quit the drummer job and the lads desperately started searching for replacement, which naturally threw them back miles and miles away from the first album dream. They went into a more Progressive Metal direction later and, after the "Shit happens!" Demo in 1994, released several EP's and albums that got compared to Dream Theater and Queensryche.

Lunacy


Lineup:


Band-info:

Local Andernach (Koblenz area) teenage Thrashers, who've been active at least since 1989 and late that year mentioned plans to record a Demo tape soon. Despite the young age of just 18 years these lads was playing on a high technical level and reminded slightly of old Testament. Further info is needed.

Bootleg


Lineup:


Kai Schmitz (vocals)
Sven Wagner (guitar)
Thorsten Datz (guitar)
Wolfgang Thielen (bass)
Martin Engler (drums)

Band-info:

A Hard Rock band with Glam Metal edge from Miesenheim/Plaidt, that formed 1986 in the Andernach area, and was previously known as Cornucopia since 1984. With Cornucopia they played several live gigs but mainly focussed on cover versions. From 1987-90 they continued as Bootleg and released a first Demo called "Rock-child" and later another 3-track Demo called "Love is a drug", from which the title track was picked for Break Out magazine's compilation LP w/ the same name. Around late 1989 the band announced to record either a 3rd Demo, but so far we couldn't find traces of it yet. They still kept on doing live shows till they changed name to Licaty Splidd in 1990. Vocalist Kai Schmitz was borrowed by Ingo Nowotny for Thunderstorm's "S.N.A.F.U." album recordings.

Thunderstorm


Lineup:


Kai Schmitz (vocals)
Barry Murray (bass)
Nigel Glockler (drums)
Simon Sobkowiak (guitar)
Matthias Raue (keyboard)

Band-info:

Dunno how Ingo Nowotny got Nigel Glockner (ex-Saxon) to participate in this project, but for sure alot of cash was in the game. Thunderstorm indirectly was one of Metal Enterprises "casted" bands, featuring Simon Sobkowiak (ex-Expect No Mercy, Simon, Kalashnikov, Breakpoint, Mallet) and Matthias Rauhe (ex-Breakpoint, ex-Godzilla), known from other Metal Enterprises fake bands. All songs was written by the two native US Americans Barry Murray (who lived in Gedern, between Frankfurt and Fulda, at that time) and Russ Burnsworth and the single musicians just played their parts inside the studio, but in different sessions. Originally a demo tape was sent out to Metal mags first during dummer '89, while later Nowotny made an LP of the same recording. For that fact, "S.N.A.F.U." features some in places quite excellent sounding melodic Heavy Metal with good vocal parts of Bootleg's vocalist Kai Schmitz and Simon Sobkowiak doing a pretty great job on the guitar as usual. Unfortunately not every casted ME boygroup sounded like Thunderstorm. Interestingly the Demo of the in 1989 yet anonymous Thunderstorm got much better reviews with highest ratings like the vinyl version with the ME tag later. So much for independent reviews...

Ralf Boettcher (guitar)
Marcus Eckhardt (keyboard)
Burkhard Steinki (bass)
Ralf Knajder (drums)

Band-info:

The booklet of this Black Jack group's selftitled Demo from 1993, shows just the label address in Witten. Neither we can tell who's playing on the 3 tracker of the 1992 founded troop, since neither names of musicians was printed there. Nevertheless, all of the 3 tracks deliver a typical 80's feeling with the speedy neckbreaker "Pearly Spencer" to stand out. Also "Heroes" offers wellsounding midtempo Metal, while only the hardrocking "Never be mine" won't fit stylistically on that Demo. Vocalwise their singer reminded strongly of James Hetfield. At a later stage the band consisted of the guys seen to the left, who performed on the later albums of the band, namely "I" (1995), "Back in town" (1998) and the last one of the trio "Straight ahead" (2002).

Band-info:

Rather unknown local Heavy Rockers from the area around Diez, east of Koblenz, who most probably either recorded a Demo tape at the fall of the 80's, because their song "Big black hole" was used for the 1989er underground compilation "Rock aus'm Kalk". Musically the Mätress material could be compared to Mandrake or similar Metal acts, a pretty solid affair. Further info is desired.

Band-info:

A Hardcore band from the area around Diez, east of Koblenz, who most probably either recorded one (or more) Demo tape(s) at the fall of the 80's/early 90's, because their song "Big bad Jaguar" was used for the 1989er underground compilation "Rock aus'm Kalk". Musically the Cum Shots offered a type of Crossover, mixing classic Hardcore with Speed Metal influences. After being featured with "Hulk will smash!" on yet another compilation, they once again appeared with "Sunspots" and "Secret agent man" on the "Persistent vision" sampler in 1991. Further info is welcome.

Aizz


Lineup:

Jiih Keeh (guitar)
Master K. (bass)
Rolf Bernie (drums)

Band-info:

From north of Wiesbaden, exactly Hünstetten, came Aizz, who played a mix of typical Euro Metal and the classic commercial LA sound. The guys started in the mid 80's and recorded their debut Demo "Sick in brain" still in the same year, while the 3 track tape "Kick in ass" followed 2 years later. Additionally we are convinced there should be either a 3rd Demo from around 1989 existing, coz Aizz was featured with the pounding, melodic Heavy Rocker "Carrie" on the local underground compilation "Rock aus'm Kalk", consisting of Dieter Schumacher, Axel Spreitzer, Holger Nickel and Holger Kraft at that time. Some people compared Aizz's sound to a commercial version of Tyran' Pace. Further info is welcome.

There's only the "Last sacraments" Demo from late 1989 known of these guys, that offers middle league, but nevertheless straight forward Thrash Metal with US touch. The band most probably split around 1990 and possibly was continued by Jochen Steger as Last Sacrament for a while. Volker Schmidt 1993 joined Dry Rot.

Band-info:

Erlangen locals who formed early 1990 and was active till 2011, featuring a number a musicians of the Nuremberg Metal scene at a later point. The band on the very first tape "Phötus" still acted more classic Heavy Metal influenced, but soon on ”Beyond good and evil” (Roland Schuch jumped on the bass, since Patrick had left the band.) went a bit power/thrashier and also rather progressive by adding lotsa Thrash untypical elements like Funk tunes. Fabian Knecht after the 2nd Demo also quit his job and Thomas would take care of the drum parts on the following Demos "Unfathomable trepidation" (1992) and "Fatal glance" (1993). The latter was also sung by ex-Seldom Refuse/Blackness shouter Volker Schmidt. Between 1995 ("Brave new world") and 1997 ("Critical condition") 2 more Demos was recorded till the guys modified their name to Dryrot and released the selftitled debut CD.

Founded 1993 in Ingolstadt, Hotwire with the line up Werner Stadi (vocals), Rudi Halbmeir (guitar), Pepe Thum (bass), Tom Glas (drums) maintained the classic US american melodic Hard Rock/Hair Metal sound of the late 80's throughout the 90's and 2000's. They selfproduced the MCD "Hotwire EP" (1994) and the selftitled debut album (1995) and later released 3 more albums on 3 different labels, namely "Face another day" (1998), "Middle of nowhere" (2001) and "Devil in discguise" (2006).

Band-info:

A Classic Rock band originating from the Ruhrpott (Essen/Duisburg/Düsseldorf/Dortmund area). We sadly found zero info of these guys, but they recorded a 7" privately during 1982, featuring the songs "Married soon" and "Here I am", which both could be seen somewhere in the (poppy) Melodic Rock/AOR business. Despite the band wasn't acting that heavy at all, both trax indeed offer a certain level of musicality. For fans of the aforementioned genres worth a try. Further info is welcome.

Band-info:

A Wuppertal based Speed Metal band, that was founded in December 1987 and recorded 3 Demos during that decade, starting with "Never surrender" in 1987, followed by another tape with unknown title and lastly "Regicide", recorded in October '88 after the band had won a local Cologne newcomer contest in September '88. On the early Demos these guys' sound could be compared to Agent Steel's style with just a different type of vocals in Living Death/Legacy vein. The band played a few live shows just regional mainly in their area during the 80's and eventually released their debut CD "Welcome in the family" in 1995 on Expander Records and is still active nowadays.

Joker


Lineup:


Beate Degen (vocals)
Xaver Drexler (vocals)
Rudi Graf (guitar)
Thomas Bremke (bass)
Jan Yldiral (drums)

Band-info:

A shortlived band from Düsseldorf, initiated 1987/88 by ex-Warlock guitarist Rudi Graf after he finished his short intermezzo in Rage. He started composing own songs and gathered some musicians of the local scene there including in the beginning drummer Jan Yldiral (ex-Steeler/Darxon/Avenger) and later Holy Moses' Uli Kusch (drums), who though left after the first Demo and got replaced by Rainer Schmitz. The recent Monroxe and later Holy Moses bassist Thomas Bremke (aka Tommy Finke) joined the band right from the start, who recorded their first Demo early 1989 still with Beate Degen and Xaver Drexler (ex-Capital Rose/Forced Entry/STS 8 Mission) sharing vocal parts. The ex-Midnight Darkness/Born Child shouter Jörg Reuter took their part on the second Demo from late '89, but soon the band folded due to line up problems. Rainer Schmitz later joined first Living Death and afterwards STS 8 Mission. Due to the musicianship we guess, that Joker's style was better to search in speedy Metal fields. Further info is badly required.

Viscid Viscera


Lineup:


Mike Blim (bass, vocals)
Eddie (guitar, vocals)
Snadges (drums)

Band-info:

Frankenthal's Viscid Viscera started back in 1983, but just after changing line up 1 or 2 years later, the band went into the right direction according to their own band info. With their 2 Demos "Daimonion" and especially "Age of anxiety" these boys caught the hearts of certain scibblers and quickly advanced to the darlings of bigger Metal mags, being called some of the hottest irons in the fire. Either the track "Our time's gone" was taken into consideration for a part of the Metal Massacre series, which isn't much surprising, since these guys used to play that typical US Power Metal stuff that was drowning the mid 80's underground scene at that time, sounding like an unpolished mix of possibly Metal Church, Texas' Valkyrie or Kil D' Kor with diverse Speed Metal trips. 1987 then the trio from the wider Mannheim/Ludwigshafen area, due to certain problems/expectations caused by the band's name, decided to pick the name Cycra instead to not be compromised any longer with being any Black Metal unit. The next Demo "Possible side-effect: death" was recorded under the monicker of Cycra within the same year too and the band almost got signed by 2 record companies, but the deals in the end did burst. Just a side note, their logo was drawn by Celtic Frost's Tom G. Warrior...

Band-info:

A Hard'n'Heavy act from Burghausen, on the austrian border, east of Munich, but closer to Salzburg. The Graple recorded just a 3 track Demo in November '88, but performed a solid US american influenced sort of that typical pounding mid 80's Hard Rock/Metal, slightly in the vein of Keel or the early Black 'N Blue. Only vocalist Torsten Rihm resurfaced during the late 90's with the band Drowning In Red. Further info is welcome.

Band-info:

A female fronted Weingarten act that was mainly active during the early 90's. At least 2 Demos were produced, but so far we have only found traces of the 2nd one "America", recorded in September '91. Musically this band in places reminds slightly of early Dream Theater or korean Dionysus, playing a virtuous/proggy US style Power Metal with all kinds of hints of epic and symphonic Metal either. Quite impressive presentation, that fans of this style shouldn't miss at all. If you have more info, please get in contact.

Giorgio Camese (guitar, vocals)
Jürgen Kühnlein (guitar)
Wolfgang Riegel (keyboard)
Massimo Aymone (drums)

Band-info:

Number Nine from Würzburg debuted with a nowadays pretty rare single, that was recorded in January '87. The guy's sound in the beginning (they are still active nowadays as a cover band) was very AOR connected and only the B-side "I'm for bad" could be called a sort of poppy Hard Rock at least. "It's me" pretty much reminds me of Melodic Rock like Toto and noone else. But fortunately on their selfproduced album "Everybody's crazy" from 1990 with ex-Darxon/Cacumen/Bonfire/Kymera Dominic Hülshorst on drums, the lads finally added that portion of missing power and delivered an US influenced Melodic Metal/Hard Rock album, that didn't need to hide behind other german bands like Wishes Burn, Vice, Bonfire, Vamp or similar acts of the late 80's, though the instrumental "Hocus Pocus" is ripping off Blitzkrieg's "Blitzkrieg" in a major way! On the other hand that song's a coverversion of Focus' song "Hocus Pocus" from their 71er album "Moving waves", so ... ehem...

Band-info:

A Power Metal band from Flensburg, who've been active during the early 90's and most probably formed around 1991, coz when they recorded their 3 track Demo "Living inquest", they yet haven't been together that long. Originally planned as just a rehearsal room cut, the whole result convinced the bunch to spread it as official tape. Despite a few still audible debilities, the recordings are for the short time frame they've been created in, quite solid sounding. Further info is needed.

They recorded 2 Demos before they changed name to PRKLZ and recorded one more tape and an album with the title "Deuce". The band's style was unspectacular, brewing a really difficult to bear sort of progressive Power Metal with terrible vocals and rhythms. Just a side note, Tammo Vollmers played the drum parts on Gamma Ray's "Heaven can wait".
