New Line-up

Today we would like to announce that Stefan Weber (ex-AXXIS) completes our line-up again.

We give a warm welcome to Stefan as our new band member. Stefan had already helped out as a guitarist at our gig at the beginning of November in Munich and we all felt that “the chemistry was right”. We are very happy to welcome him to our inner circle. To a glorious, common future.
