Profile The first solo album by ex – U.D.O. and Sinner Guitarist Andy Susemihl. Straight ahead rock with a lot of melody. Andy Susemihl has shared the stage with such rock icons as Ozzy Osbourne, Guns’n’Roses, Deep Purple and Lita Ford. His songs and guitar work have been showcased alongside the work of such noted guitarists as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Steve Stevens. An artist of multifaceted abilities, Susemihl’s maturing talent glows increasingly brighter, ready to flare into a raging inferno of creativity.

In 1994, Susemihl relocated to Los Angeles, CA, and in early 1995 he recorded “Life among the Roaches”(Voices/Gun Attack), which, in his own words, is rather a home recording capture of some great times with good friends than his first solo album. His debut is quite impressive with some bluesy songs, aggressive driving riffs and groovy acoustic guitars. The vocal of Susemihl is clear and sometimes recalls Gary Moore while his guitar work is absolutely dry, clear and powerful without much effect. Exciting is the doubled guitar especially in “Spirits In My Head”. A successful debut that deserves a lot of listeners…
