Ivanhoe

During the festival at the cathedral of Gandersheim in 2001, sound designer Achim Welsch and Mischa Mang, who performed there as „Judas" in the musical „Jesus Christ Superstar", felt bored while they had a break. They knew each other just from the rehearsals, but Achim was impressed by Mischa's guttural voice full of divine pain and demonic power. When the melody of a well known Dream Theater epos was played an the piano and Achim heard the voice of "Judas" sing along, he realized that a new era had begun. That was the end of a long search, which had begun in 1998 when singer Andy B. Franck had left the band.
