AXEL RUDI PELL

“Tour 2019”
+ special Guest: PRAYING MANTIS

19:00 Einlass, 20:00 Beginn

„Ich habe lieber jahrelang konstanten Erfolg als nur ein Hit-Album, an dem mich alle ständig messen.“ Axel Rudi Pell muss es wissen. Immerhin dauert seine Solokarriere beinahe drei Jahrzehnte.
Im internationalen Hardrock-Universum ist Pell ein Phänomen. Ein Musiker, der unter dem Radar fliegt, aber keineswegs unsichtbar ist. Ein ehrlicher Handwerker, der eben dieses noch von der Pike auf gelernt hat. Schreibblockaden kennt er nicht, Wellenreiterei mag er nicht. Der alte Werbeklassiker trifft auch auf Pell zu: Da weiß man, was man hat. Pells letzte Veröffentlichung „Knights Call“ ist das 17. (in Worten: siebzehnte!) Studioalbum des Gitarristen. Allein diese Tatsache spricht für sich und die Konstanz, mit der er seit 1989 Alben auf den Markt bringt. Alle sind übrigens bei ein und derselben Plattenfirma erschienen und haben weltweit über 1.5 Millionen Käufer gefunden. Aber das ist kein Grund, sich auf diesem Erfolg auszuruhen. „Warum sollte ich aufhören?“, fragt der 58-Jährige und gibt sich selbst die Antwort: „Solange ich das machen kann, was mir am meisten Spaß macht, bin ich zufrieden.“ Im Prinzip lebt Pell ein Leben, von dem andere nur träumen: Er hat nicht nur sein Hobby zum Beruf, sondern daraus auch gleichzeitig eine Berufung gemacht. Seine Leidenschaft treibt ihn an, er ist ständig auf der Suche nach dem besseren Chorus, der besseren Bridge, dem besseren Solo, dem besseren Song. „Komponieren ist wie vieles im Leben, entweder man kann es oder man kann es nicht.“ Er vertraut sich, aber auch seinem deutsch-amerikanischem Team um Sänger Johnny Gioeli und Drummer Bobby Rondinelli. Und dazu zählt er auch seine Fans. „Das
direkte Feedback ist wichtig, Pell nur im Studio wäre langweilig.“ Also geht es 2019 wieder auf Tournee. Man sieht sich zu Pfingsten in Jena!

Das Konzert wird präsentiert von Rock Hard, Musix, Rocks, Powermetal.de, Rock it! und Gitarre&Bass.

THE GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE

AGNOSTIC FRONT

CELEBRATING 35 YEARS OF
VICTIM IN PAIN




+ guests: Moment of Truth

19:00 Einlass, 20:00 Beginn

Legendary Hardcore/Thrash titans, AGNOSTIC FRONT, are back with another testament to the bands flawless legacy! Recorded at the now infamous Planet Z Studios in Hadley Massachusetts by Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall), Warriors is the yet another landmark in hardcore’s history. Produced this time around by vocalist Roger Miret’s little brother, Freddy Cricien (Madball, Hazen Street), the bands message of family and unity has never come across stronger in their music. Warriors is a statement of strength in the face of adversity and few bands make a statement louder than AGNOSTIC FRONT.
In today’s civilization, people continue to suffer undergoing the grief, corruption, oppression and exploitation without a way to elude their troubles. Many have lived through these problems for ages, and the moment one tries to fight for what they believe is right, the elite brings them down and their voices are disregarded. For over a decade, AGNOSTIC FRONT has helped get these messages across to the populace to help solve these problems through socially driven music known as “hardcore.” In their latest offering, the band gives power and strength to these ignored voices. As one of the original hardcore bands that lived and breathed the problems that controlled their everyday New York City lifestyle since 1983, they have been amongst the most venerable and notorious outcasts of this hardcore movement.
These rarely confronted and always respected leaders of hardcore were established as one of the meanest-sounding bands in the emerging punk genre, helping to initiate the term „hardcore,“ and placing an entire uproar on the New York map by association. From the start, AGNOSTIC FRONT released a catalogue of fast and violent punk tunes consisting of distinctive and aggressive drumming, bass work, and a non-stop barrage of chaotic shouting. AGNOSTIC FRONT’s uncontrollable drumming and fuming guitars fill every minute like an onrushing storm of flailing limbs and incinerating transistors. The heavier paced balance between the energy and discipline of their earlier punk roots strikes a taut and vivid rock barrage that moshes in close formation. „It’s social politics,“ Roger states. „The day-to-day reality of waking up, reading the newspaper, and walking around the neighborhood. It’s a hard stare on why the world is still one fucked-up place, and we tackle the very real shit that’s going down: gentrification’s running rampant, street justice, world destruction, working wages, and backs are still being stabbed.“
Long outliving their now-legendary contemporaries like Minor Threat, SSD, Dead Kennedys and Black Flag, AGNOSTIC FRONT could easily live off their laurels, but their fight is yet over! Throughout their storied history, AGNOSTIC FRONT have been anything but a ravishing group of individuals living prosperously and content. In fact, the band is more akin to have experienced growing up in adverse streets, undergoing arduous times, serving time in prison, become inflicted with murdered friends, the list would go on perpetually. But while there are definite vestiges of the past affecting them, they manage to continue and expose the conflicts they had to undergo in a compellingly evocative approach by relating it to their views of the world today.
AGNOSTIC FRONT continues to be living embodiment that „hardcore for life“ isn’t an empty slogan or a musical dead end. No one is born with tattoos. No one’s born hardcore. But when the ink or the music sets in, you’re changed. Their latest offering reaffirms that AGNOSTIC FRONT as a band, still operates like a musical razor blade. Regardless of their history, the proof is simple: AGNOSTIC FRONT’s anthems are hard, cutting, and the remarkable music continues to broaden with every release. “We support UNITY! We despise ignorance and hatred within our scene. The only people we should be at war with is those who oppress us, not with each other. Unite! Fight the system! Not ourselves! Believe – Hardcore!”

ZEBRAHEAD

& Support

Einlass 19:00 Uhr | Beginn 20:00 Uhr

Seit ihrer Gründung sind Zebrahead durch Höhen und Tiefen gegangen, haben über zwei Millionen Alben verkauft, Label- und Besetzungswechsel überlebt und erhielten sogar eine Grammy Nominierung für das mit Lemmy Kilmister aufgenommene Metallica Cover „Enter Sandman“. Die Band aus Orange County, USA ist einfach nicht aufzuhalten. Nachdem es ein Jahr etwas ruhiger
um die fünf Jungs war, haben sie am 08. März endlich ihr sehnlich erwartetes neues Album veröffentlicht.
„Brain Invaders“ ist das elfte Studioalbum von Zebrahead und wurde von der Band in Zusammenarbeit mit Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Atreyu, Thrice, Death by Stereo) produziert und von Kyle Black (Pierce the Veil, Paramore, New Found Glory) gemischt. „Wir sind gespannt, wie euch das neue Album gefällt. Wir hatten sehr viel Spaß bei den Aufnahmen […],“ sagt Gitarrist und Sänger Matty Lewis.

Zebrahead bringen einfach jede Crowd zum Springen, zum Moshen und derart zum Stagediven, dass das Equipment auf der Bühne durcheinander gewirbelt wird, wie bei einem Tornado. Im Sommer statten sie uns mit vier Konzerten einen vergleichsweise kurzen Besuch ab; im September kommen sie mit ihrer beeindruckenden Show nämlich für sage und schreibe 11 weitere Konzerte zurück nach Deutschland.

ANNIHILATOR

“A Tour For The Demented 2019”
+ special Guest

19:00 Einlass, 20:00 Beginn

Since 1989, Canada’s ANNIHILATOR have not stopped putting out records and touring the world. Despite the ever-changing climate of the Metal World (and releasing a series of “different” Metal records with various lineups along the way), Jeff Waters and company have consistently delivered strong albums since the band’s debut “Alice In Hell”. Then there was 1990’s best-selling “Never, Neverland”, 1995’s “King of The Kill”, “Schizo Deluxe” in 2005 and many other critically-acclaimed releases up until 2015’s “Suicide Society.” The ‘under-the-radar’ influence of this band, and writer/guitarist/vocalist Jeff Waters, has been felt throughout the entire realm of the metal world by a ton of well-known musicians and bands; that influence even stretching into the hard rock and instrumentalist genre.

ANNIHILATOR’s main man Jeff Waters, in his usual humble manner, offers this in response: “ANNIHILATOR’s music has been influenced by a good hundred of my favorite bands and musicians; you can hear their contributions to what I have been doing all throughout ANNIHILATOR’s catalogue. It’s a bonus and an honor when bands and musicians I love mention that I had something to do with their playing or songs!”

Which all leads to the fact that ANNIHILATOR’S 16th studio release, “For The Demented”, is certainly their most complete and definitive statement yet.

“It was time to analyze what a lot of fans over the years have kept telling me,” says Waters. “It was time to sit down and figure out “why” ANNIHILATOR’s early “thrash-meets-melodic” caught the ears of so many AND to try to sweep the “fan” part of my writing/playing/singing out the door and welcome back the mostly-original Waters writing that was to be the first four ANNIHILATOR albums.”

Waters didn’t venture back alone, while looking back through ANNIHILATOR’S history. “I was well aware that trying to re-capture the past usually fails, or at least won’t come close. So I decided to bring in fresh ears, both musically and physically with Rich Hinks, my bassist for the last few years. And doing most all of the records by myself, including writing and playing most all on my own, as well as mixing, mastering, engineering, etc…, well it can become routine and can often hinder you from being objective and more creative.
Rich came in and co-wrote the music with me, as well as co-produced the beginning stages of the record. His background of classic thrash metal meets a newer “math” metal style was the perfect combination for me to simply ask, “What do you think of this?” He would most-often reply with “not the ANNIHILATOR style I like”, so we would keep going until we both felt that core ANNIHILATOR riffing and writing style presented itself.

“Bottom line, “For The Demented” captures some feel from ANNIHILATOR’s 1985-87 demos mixed with the first 4 ANNIHILATOR records. Back to the thrash meets melody but with some pure Waters guitar riffing, up-graded lead guitar shredding and vocals back to the demo-days meets the “King of The Kill” record.
Lyrically, I placed a theme on the record: the human mind and all of its glory, complexity, diversity, weaknesses and insanity! Pretty much the craziness of the music is matched by the lyrics.”

“I think Metal Fans are going to hear much of what they have been waiting for from ANNIHILATOR.”

SACRED REICH

“AWAKENING EUROPEAN TOUR 2019”
+ special Guests NIGHT DEMON

19:00 Einlass, 20:00 Beginn

I remember the first time I saw Sacred Reich, at The Marquee in London in 1989. The first thing that struck me was that the queue was around the block. I guess I wasn’t alone in my admiration for the band. Once inside the excitement was palpable, there was an air of anticipation.. As the band slammed into the opening song the room exploded. Bodies were flying over the top of the barricade. An enormous pit broke out. People were jumping up and down and singing along at the top of their lungs. This was something to behold. Sacred Reich whipped everyone in the sold out room into a frenzy and never let up. They pounded us with “Ignorance”, “One Nation”, and a blistering cover of Sabbath’s “War Pigs”. As the final strains of the encore “Surf Nicaragua” rang in my ears Sacred Reich triumphantly left the stage and left us to pick up the pieces. We were all blown away.

Fast forward six months to the Dynamo Open Air in Eindhoven Holland. Sacred Reich has really hit their stride. From the moment they hit the stage and dive into “Surf Nicaragua” the crowd is with them. Just as the Marquee show six months earlier bodies fly over the top, an enormous pit erupts in the middle of the crowd, and it seems everyone knows all of the words to every song. This time the crowd is 25,000 strong!

Sacred Reich would go on to tour the world with Pantera, Sepultura, and Danzig to name a few, and release more great records but I will never forget “Surf Nicaragua” and those six months in 1989. You really felt like you were part of something. The big four Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax had become big stars, leading the way, yet somewhat removed from the grass roots of the scene they put on the map. Sacred Reich still felt like “our” band. The mix of the pounding drums of Greg Hall, the power chord acrobatics of rhythm guitarist Jason Rainey, Wiley Arnett’s incredibly tasty solos, and the unique vocals and provocative lyrics of bassist/singer Phil Rind was something real, something we could relate to. I followed the band throughout their career from “Ignorance” a blast of sheer force and in your face thrash, “Surf Nicaragua” possibly the greatest Metal EP ever, “The American Way” a musical and lyrical tour de force, “Independent” with new drummer Dave McClain (Machine Head) and a honed and polished sound and their last studio album “Heal” still heavy enough to kill your neighbors lawn.
Put on those records today and they stand the test of time, musically and lyrically. I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.

It’s been twenty years since Sacred Reich released their debut record Ignorance (yes they were actually records on vinyl); and eighteen years since those memorable shows in London and Eindhoven. My hair has become a little bit thinner while my body has gone the opposite direction. Very recently I have received a bit of good news. In the summer of 2007 Metal Blade Records will be re-issuing Ignorance and Surf Nicaragua together on two discs with some unreleased tracks and a DVD including footage of that famous Dynamo gig in 1989. And to add to my excitement the original lineup will be getting back together to do some shows in Europe.
They will be playing some of my old stomping grounds London, Eindhoven, Belgium, and an appearance at Wacken Open Air!

Thank you lads for getting back at it. I’m getting ready for people flying over the top, huge pits, and everyone singing at the top of their lungs! That’s how I remember it. I’ll be sure to get out the old neck brace!

Cheers!!!

SPEJBLS HELPRS a tribute to AC/DC

SPEJBLS HELPRS a tribute to AC/DC

Am 28.11.2014 erschien „Rock or bust“ und die Dinosaurier des Hardrock waren gerade vor Hunderttausenden Fans unterwegs. Ein Grund mehr für die tschechische AC/DC Coverband Spejbls Helprs ebenfalls die Konzertsäle zu entern. Und nun tritt auch noch Brian Johnson ab, was für ein Drama. Aber Fan um Fan von AC/DC läßt sich seit dem ersten Auftritt in Deutschland im Jahr 2000 von den fünf Jungs aus Pribram begeistern. Für manchen Veranstalter sind Spejbls Helprs schon zur Droge geworden, zumal des öfteren bis zu 1.000 Fans zu den Konzerten pilgern. Ging es am Anfang nur um eine möglichst originaltreue Klangkopie, machen mittlerweile auch Showelemente, wie Dollarregen (echte Spejbl & Hurvinek Dollars), Gitarrensoli durchs Fanpublikum und „Angusposen“ (den Arsch seht ihr beim Original übrigens nicht mehr…) einen Teil des Erfolges aus. Einige Titel nahmen die Jungs auch in einem guten Prager Ton-Studio auf. Die Ergebnisse stehen selbstverständlich als Promo zur Verfügung.

Unter den Dutzenden „besten AC/DC Coverbands der Welt“ gibt es wohl kaum eine, die den Spagat zwischen „High voltage“(1976) und „Rock or bust“(2014) so mühelos bewältigt und die glaubhafter, als Sänger Petr Prusa Songs mit Bon Scott, wie mit Brian Johnson intoniert.
Insgesamt befinden sich weit über 50 Titel im Repertoire und wer das superrare Stück „Lovesong“ aus AC/DCs Kindertagen 1974 hören will, muß nur laut und lang genug nach Zugabe schreien.
