Axel Rudi Pell The Crest on Limited Edition 2LP + CD

Exceptionally talented German heavy metal guitar wizard Axel Rudi Pell, who has been at the forefront of the European melodic metal scene for over three decades now, returned in 2010 with The Crest, his thirteenth studio LP. It's a gloriously traditional hard rocking metal album, containing ten deeply melodic, classic rock compositions, on which American vocalist Johnny Gioeli's powerful, compelling vocals intertwine perfectly with Axel's nimble, fluid fretwork.

Pell took care of production himself ­for the first time ­on The Crest, when he, bassist Volker Krawczak, keyboard player Ferdy Doernberg and drummer Mike Terrana recorded the album at W.A.T. studios in Bochum between November 2009 and January 2010. Pell worked on the vocals in great detail with singer Gioeli via Skype before Johnny recorded his vocals in the US. The album was mixed, as usual, by Charlie Bauerfeind at the Mi Sueno Studios in Tenerife and at the Blind Guardian's Twilight Hall Studios in Grefrath, Germany.

While each and every one of the ten tracks on this consummate album stand out in their own right, mention should be made of particular highlights, such as the eight minute "Dark Waves Of The Sea (Oceans Of Time Part II: The Dark Side)," the ballad "Glory Night," and the instrumental "Nobless Oblige (Opus #5 Adagio Contabile)."
