Axel Rudi Pell, the heavy metal band from Germany. Formed in 1988 and has been going since.
In 1998 the band had a big line-up change introducing new singer, drummer and keyboardist - and in my opinion the band has not been stronger then they are now.

Johnny Gioeli has to be one of my favorite singers, I love his voice - it fits so perfectly into the band who usually play more ballad kind of stuff. The backbone of their albums arent exceptionally fast stuff but it is thoroughly enjoyable stuff indeed.

They dont play a lot of live shows, or not from what I can see - but I am lucky enough to be able to watch them play at the end of this month and I am very excited indeed as they are probably one of my favorite bands now. I will make sure I get my albums signed too!

So anyone else who likes this band or has anything else to say about the band, pop a comment by and let us know what you think. Favorite albums, that sort of stuff..

I have to say, my favorite album is probably the album from a couple of years ago, 'Kings And Queens'
every song on that album is quite remarkable I think and is well worth listening to indeed!

Anyone who does not know this band but loves real heavy metal - they are well worth looking into!!

yeh, I have heard the covers album now and I do quite like it after a few listens - there are a few great songs on there, but to be honest it is a pretty pointless album
I am looking forward to the next real full length Axel Rudi Pell album

I just downloaded Mystica (though only a sample) and it sounds really awesome. I wish to get into Axel Rudy Pell. I'd ask for recommendations but i'll just try and get the albums mr Baz are good. I shall return.

It's been a long, LONG time since I have listened to Axel Rudi Pell.
I've got a few seIect ballads on now, and I am wondering why I ever stopped listening to him.

After reading several reviews, I gave this band a shot and I really agree that this band plays some really quality music. We have great vocals and some really good guitar work. Now i've got 7 of their albums XD Personally, I like Mystica and Oceans Of Time the most.

Just discovering this band, and "Oceans of Time" blows my mind. The music is has a simplistic (and complex) feel to it and the solos are great. The vocals are over-the-top, but in a good way.

The ballad "The Clown Is Dead" is probably one of the most effective metal ballads imo. i hear it in my mind all the time o.0

I discovered them recently by stumbling in a Jeff's review here on MS. I got curious about his respect for the band so I bought the last album "The Crest" and I can see why he has such respect for them. I love the album, it has everything a heavy band should have: powerful and catchy vocals, and guitar riffs; awesome memorable guitar solos; nice keyboard atmosphere.
I'm surprised I didn't know them before. Maybe if I heard people talking I'd know them. Why there's so few people who know them? They deserve a better attention... I mean, a band so good with more than 20 years and only a few of us knows them?
It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.

The first song I've heard from them is "The Clown Is Dead" a few years back and it definitely made me look into them a lot more. Great band and even the past members are some great musicians themselves.

Through the wind and the rain
