For Immediate Release:

German Guitar Maestro Axel Rudi Pell Releases Adventurous 2-CD Live Album Knights Live On February 4th, 2003 Through SPV

Celebrating a career spanning nearly 20 years and 13 solo albums, Germany's premiere guitar hero Axel Rudi Pell is releasing a special 2-CD live album entitled Knights Live on February 4th, 2003. The 100+ minute set was recorded live (authentic, with no overdubs) at The Zeche in Bochum, Germany during Pell's 2002 European Tour in support of his most recent SPV studio effort Shadow Zone.

The performance captures the Axel Rudi Pell band at its absolute finest. Mixed by renowned producer Charlie Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, Helloween, etc.), Knights Live is a testimonial to the band's evolution and importance in the hard rock genre. Pell has been instrumental in molding the European rock music landscape through the ‘80s and ‘90s, and has made a successful transition to the present millennium. His charismatic, soulful playing style is incomparable, and his Rainbow/Deep Purple-influenced sense of melody makes his compositions both memorable and alluring.

Making the performance even more captivating is Pell's unique camaraderie with his bandmates. Axel Rudi Pell has always been known for complementing his intense, dazzling guitar work with an unequivocal backing band, which currently consists of vocalist Johnny Gioeli (formerly of Hardline), bassist Volker Krawczak (from Pell's original band Steeler), keyboardist Ferdy Doermberg (formerly of Rough Silk), and veteran drummer Mike Terrana (known for his work with Artension, Rage, Metalium, Tony MacAlpine and Yngwie Malmsteen).

Knights Live amplifies one man's gifts through the outstanding nature of his accompaniment. An excellent group of musicians, the Axel Rudi Pell band improvises flawlessly as they sweep through the 2 discs of live entertainment, with many tracks eclipsing 10 minutes in length. As with the band's most recent prior releases, The Masquerade Ball and Shadow Zone, Knights Live is marked to become an important piece of timeless German metal history.
