Axxis are currently recording the material for their new studio album. This time, the band members will come up with a special surprise to celebrate their 20th band anniversary. Stay tuned for upcoming news regarding this matter.

At this moment, Axxis singer Bernhard is recording his vocal tracks before drummer Alex Landenburg will start with the drum recordings.

The upcoming Axxis album will be produced by Harry and Berny. The band is once again working with engineer Dennis Ward (never change a winning team!). Also a female vocalist will take part at the new production, but this time, she will only act in the background.

Axxis - New Drummer Announced

Axxis have announced Alex Landenburg as the new drummer in the group. Commented on the band's official site:

"It took a long time…but now the search for a new drummer is over. Alex Landenburg is the new Axxis drummer. Due to the high number of applications of some really great drummers, it was not an easy choice for the Axxis guys to be made.

Harry Oellers (keyboards): "We were really spoilt for choice this time, with the level of the drummers being top notch, and it wasn't easy for us to turn the others down. With some of them we will keep in touch for other projects though."

Bernhard Weiß (vocals): "The shows we got to play with Alex were a lot of fun for us! He's a great guy and he just fits us both musically and personality wise! I'm looking forward to the next production where his drumming will add a new twist to our songs!"

Marco Wriedt (guitars): "I'm very happy that Alex is the new Axxis Drummer. Since Gig one with Alex, I'm pretty amazed by his talents and his attitude. I'm already looking forward to the new Axxis Production where we can show how powerful and diverse this new Axxis-Line Up is. Let's unleash the fury Alex!!"

Alex Landenburg who is known for his work with bands like Mekong Delta, At Vance or Annihilator is very much looking forward to his new duty in Axxis!

Alex comments: "I'm absolutely excited to be the new drummer for Axxis! The spirit in this band and also between the band members is amazing, and it's just plain fun to share a stage with these guys! I'm looking forward to the next Axxis record and upcoming shows and as usual I'm ready to give a 100%, both live and in studio.

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say thanks to the Axxis fans, for the heartfelt way I was welcomed by you guys and gals during the last shows! See you all on the road!"

Axxis - Guido Is Not With Axxis Anymore

The year 2006 was a very successful year for AXXIS and now we got bad news :-(

Guido wanted to leave AXXIS.

The band did know his decision since september 2006 and wanted to say thanxx for the great time, the great productions and the wonderful gigs with him. For AXXIS it's not an easy situation but everybody accepted Guido's plan for his own future.

In Karlsruhe/Germany was the last gig with him and AXXIS presented a large cake for their long-time colleague during their private party. The goodbye was not easy...

Here you can read Guido's statement =>

"Hello my dear friends and fans!!

As you probably know by now I have left Axxis! The reasons for my decision are very personal and I would like you not to speculate too much about them. More imortant to me is that you respect my decision and hold on to Axxis. Please give a heartly and warm welcome to my follow up. Just like you welcomed me as i followed Walter in 1998. Hopefully I will show up on stage again soon and I would be very happy to see familiar faces. You'll soon be able to find and contact me on MySpace.

All the best for the future to you all and Axxis

Sincerly yours Guido"

The band is trying to find a good alternative and if someone thinks that he's able to do this job, he can send and mail with bio and fotos to
