Profile 3-tracks EP, released in 1997 in very small quantity, today impossible to find. The band was located near Stuttgart/Germany (hometown of Porsche and Mercedes Benz). This was the bands one and only release. The band existed only for a very short time. Vocalist Mike Zotter later joined other german hr acts like Stormhammer + Dreamscape. Bass player Ulli Hauff joined the well known Pump. For what reason ever the credits show some faked names . Vocalist Mike Zotter is mentioned as Mike Michaelis. Mentioned for recording + mix of track 2+3 is Dennis Wylde, also a faked name. His real name is Oliver Simon (died in 2013 at the age of 56), a well known german pop star who had big success in the 80 + 90s in a euro pop-duo named Mixed Emotions together with well known Drafi Deutscher (had the mega hit “Marmor Stein und Eisen bricht). So all in all this is a very obscure release. Nevertheless the 3 tracks deliver fantastic melodic hard rock. Highly recommended.

    Hi there, I was very surprised to find my first CD as an review in the Internet. Wow….great and unbelievable. Some days ago I talked to an friend and musician about this song ¨spread your wings¨. We thought about to reproduce it, maybe with some new arrangements. Could you be so kind and tell me where you get this CD. Because during this time we had only sell it to friends and fans who joined us on some Gigs.

    Best regard and keep on rocking MIke Zotter
