Profile Here’s a lost gem for you guys…. Universe – “Bad Child”…released in 1992. It has everything that melodic rock fans would want….big production, memorable/catchy choruses, solid musicianship, etc. Their sound is a mix of Blue Tears, China, Victory, Melidan, Dare, and maybe a little Dirty Rhythm. You can make your own comparisons, but without a doubt, this is a must listen!!

The guitarist Wolla Boehm (including Wind Storm, UDO, Darxon, Snakebite) and Holly Gerorge (bass), founded the band after the end of the band Axe Victims, in 1985 at Wuppertal. Drummer Ingo Plass (including Darxon), guitarist Reinhold Durand (including Darxon) and Frank De Santo (vocals), the right people were found quickly.

In early 1986, received a contract from the Universe producer Dieter Dierks and released in 1988, unfortunately only in Eastern Europe, the single ” I Want You “/” Strong Survivors “. Here are several of the promotional appearances in Eastern Europe. Universe 1990 touring America and thus collect more live experience.

End of 1991 in the Czech Republic take Universe, Berlin and Hanover on the songs for the debut album. 1992 “Bad Child” was published. The 10 songs convincing at the first listening test, and are pretty impressive, and with decent tunes from the speakers. The album seduced a yellow sticker with the words “Ex UDO, ex Darxon, ex Axe Victims” for sale. Universe tour through Europe and then attend some gigs in America.
