Dear friends, fans and companions!
Let me tell you a story – MY story – MY 40 METAL YEARS: You are all part of this story because without you there would be no story at all. In 1982 the NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL with bands like JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN and SAXON changed my musical world completely and from that moment on I had only one goal – playing this kind of music myself. The same year 1982 I founded MAD MAX and I’m thankful and proud to celebrate the MAD MAX 40th anniversary in 2022.
But I also would love to celebrate with you all my very own 40 years in the world of heavy metal music by recording brand new songs and songs from my history. Please let me introduce you to my fantastic songwriting partner Peter Lenzschau. He’s not only a fabulous songwriter but also one of Germany’s best heavy metal singers around. Together with a great band we can’t wait to hit the stage and present our songs live for you. Stay tuned for more!!!

A new Halls Of Oblivion EP will be released digitally on all platforms on February 5th, 2021. The idea to publish the EP arose at the beginning of the Corona pandemic. Three songs on the 4-track EP are made from older song material that the band has revised over the past few months. The songs are about the deepest depths of human existence and society. The title track ‘… Of Hate And Despair’ symbolizes the theme of the EP and the feeling of hopelessness. The EP was recorded in the band’s home studio and the mixing and mastering was done by bassist Markus Kristen.
In addition to the three new songs the EP contains an acoustic version of ‘Walking Dead’ and creates a direct reference to their first album Endtime Poetry, which was released in 2019. Special guests on the EP are Mindead singer Timo Fielker (vocals on ‘Walking Dead’), Jens Böhm (keyboards on ‘King Of None’, ‘…Of Hate And Despair’ and ‘Walking Dead’), Laura Welte (flute on ‘’King Of None’) and Julia Makain (violin on ‘Walking Dead’).

December 4th, 2020 REBEL’s cult album STARGAZER from 1982 will be officially released on CD for the very first time! The masterpiece was remastered by Jacky Lehmann (SAXON, BIFF BYFORD, and many more). It is 1982 and the Hard’n Heavy scene in Germany is about to grow. One of them is called REBEL and it is the brainchild of a young guitarist called Tommy Clauss. John Lawton, ex-Singer of URIAH HEEP and LUCIFER‘S FRIEND, was on a promotion tour for his album „Heartbeat“ in Germany, when Tommy had the chance to meet him and to ask if he wants to produce their album. After John agreed they started to record ‘STARGAZER’. Because the singer of the band had a few problems to sing the songs, John himself stepped in.
Later in the 80s John and Tommy teamed up again for the first album of a band called ZAR. But this is a totally different story!

I think most of you following TwentyDarkSeven the last couple months (years?) have heard the bad news already.
Selly decided to leave TwentyDarkSeven last week and will not tour with us next month. Admittedly, it was quite surprising to say at least. But we understand his reasoning of course and fully support his decision.
It only remains for me to say a big and heartfelt thank you, thanks for everything mate! We wish you nothing but the best for all your future endeavours!
Cheers & beers,
Marcus & TwentyDarkSeven
