When the mission is so clear, one can - no MUST - express this unmistakably. And so, under the banner of ALL FOR METAL, the metal enthusiasts Tim "Tetzel" Wagner (known as the singer of the band Asenblut as well as a strength athlete and fitness influencer) and Antonio Calanna (singer of the hard rock band DeVicious) join forces. Both are united by their love for classic heavy metal sounds and the common vision to bring them to a new generation of music fans. With great, compact, catchy songs and a dedicated, highly professional production team behind them, ALL FOR METAL unleash anthemic, straightforward metal that has international class.
"We grew up with bands like Manowar, at whose concerts the audience is overwhelmed by the energy," says singer Tetzel. "That's where strangers are in each other's arms and fervently belting out the songs. This invisible bond, this connection, is created through the music alone." His vocal counterpart Antonio adds, "I've only experienced such a sense of community in the metal scene. With ALL FOR METAL, we want to help pass this on and let as many music fans as possible share in it."
Right away, the first jointly pre-produced song "All For Metal" (introduced in proper style by heavy anvil strikes) with its pounding rhythm, catchy guitar riffs and earworm refrain, is a real hit. Not coincidentally, the lyric line "It's all for Metal - and Metal for all" evokes a cohesion here that unites across ages and genders.
Euphorized by this early songwriting success, another number was subsequently created with "Born In Valhalla", which is no less impressive. In the third song "Raise Your Hammer" folky echoes mix into the catchy heavy metal sound. Unifying element here again: The great chorus - not least by the experienced producer Hardy Krech (Elephant Music Flensburg; Kissin' Dynamite, Beyond The Black, among others) perfectly staged.
It is already clear: Antonio's powerful melodic metal clear vocals and Tetzel's rather rough organ harmonize perfectly with each other and give this promising new band that certain something. The muscular giant Tetzel and the charismatic Antonio are supported by Jasmin Pabst, Ursula Zanichelli, Florian Toma and Leif Jensen.
