LIONCAGE

Country Germany

Style Melodic Hard Rock

The band LIONCAGE was founded in 2013 by Thorsten Bertermann (vocals), Torsten Landsberger (drums) and Lars König (guitar & mix). All three musicians had known each other for many years performing in professional tribute bands, and impulsively started a band with original songs after having a couple of beers at a festival, well, a rock festival…

As all three band members are influenced by 80’s rock such as Toto, Foreigner and Journey then it was an easy decision to form a band themselves. They all had played in cover bands previously and so the playing came naturally. The three set about writing their own material and the result sounds great. What we have here is polished guitar driven melodic rock and keyboard drenched ballads that we all love. If you love that eighties sound then this is an album for you, the overall sound is good solid melodic rock and mixed / produced by Lars himself. Lioncage already have a good following which is only going to grow when this new release hits the streets.

Their second album “The Second Strike” which now is presented with even more finesse, power and versatility. Some fantastic and talented musicians and friends helped the German three-piece to complete their new record. The bass guitar was handled by Lars Slowak, Sven Zimmermann, Andreas Laude-Schwedewsky and Dirk Meyer, keyboards by Mitch Knauer and Shanger Ohl, and backing vocals by Madeleine Lang, Anja Bublitz, Olaf Senkbeil and Billy King. Last but not least, one of the finest studio guitarists, Tim Pierce, (Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Joe Cocker, Rick Springfield, Elton John etc.) took over some guitar parts on the track “Secrets”. On “The Second Strike”, Lioncage impressively prove that Germany is able to offer great productions in the Westcoast, AOR and Melodic Rock genre.

The lions are very proud and grateful to have made it this far. The new album reflects exactly what the band loves and what Lioncage stands for, also in 2018: a diverse album with great tunes, many hooks, cool grooves and powerful guitars. If you think that this album celebrates rock music more than anything else presented by Lioncage so far – you are right. The lions roar louder and the guitar sounds are thicker.

Since 2017 the band has performed live on stage in great gigs together with FM, Dan Reed Network, Tyketto, Three Wishes and others. This has had a sustainable influence on sound and song-writing, it has added new sides to the music and has given it more power without losing any melodiousness. Once more the band was pleased to welcome outstanding guests to their cage who supported them passionately and professionally, to name only a few among many others: Neil Murray (b), a.o. Whitesnake, Black Sabbath), Olaf Senkbeil (v, Dreamtide) and Joe Castellini (g). For the first time some friends of the lions contributed to the song-writing. “Comfort Me” was written together with Joe Castellini and “Turn Back Time” with Olaf Senkbeil.
