Back For The Attack

A driving force in the German Heavy Metal scene since the early 80s, Herman Frank is back with a vengeance on his new album Two For A Lie. From his work in Accept, to Victory to his solo career, Frank has proven himself as a Metal force to be reckoned with. For his 5th solo effort, Herman Frank has assembled a solid lineup featuring vocalist Rick Altzi (Masterplan), Michael “Mülli” Müller (Jaded Heart) on the bass, with new members guitarist Mike Pesin and drummer Kevin Kott joining the team.

About the Album

Two For A Lie was produced by Herman Frank himself together with co-producer Arne Neurand, recorded and mixed in the venerable Horus Sound Studios in Hannover and mastered by Robin Schmidt. The album features the razor sharp rhythms that you’d expect, while anthemic vocals and Classic Metal guitar solos decorate this Heavy Metal layer cake. From the hard driving opening riffs to the closing notes of the album, Herman Frank and company deliver the goods.

Final Notes

It’s a wonderful thing when one of the founders of German Heavy Metal is still working hard, putting out great music with such a talented group of musicians. Herman Frank knows what fans want, and comes through with Two For A Lie. For any self respecting Metal fan out there, this album is a winner, and belongs in your collection.
