Profile This is a German Christian band with female singer Angela Gerhold (who has a great powerful voice) that released “Total Uberrascht” back in 1993, their only album and they plit soon after the release. The great “Weil Du Mich Liebst” opens the album and is followed by the mind blowing “Kratz Mir Meinen Lack Ab” – a rocking AOR tune with loads of great riffs and brilliant solos and of course a super catchy chorus that reminds of Scandal meets Turbo Red. “Einmal Mehr” and “On God’s Way” are both brilliant AOR tracks with bombastic horns at the melodic chorus.

Both remind of Park Cafe meets Gemini. Some Scandal can easily be found on the infectious “Mr. Harry Crane”, while “Frankfurt” and “Zwischen All Den Anderen” both offer a great mix of smooth Westcoast and light AOR in the vein of Toto meets Damaris Joy (with a female singer). There’re some gospel parts as some filler songs. If you in vein of bands mention above check it out.
