Ever since his 1989 solo debut ‘Wild Obsession’ (1989), Axel Rudi Pell has stood out as a virtuoso melodic metal guitarist. Pell’s compositions have a singularly recognisable signature that never loses sight of the melodic flow. Throughout his career he has worked with other top artists such as drummers Jörg Michael, Mike Terrana and Bobby Rondinelli (since 2013) and vocalists Rob Rock, Jeff Scott Soto and Johnny Gioeli. Their 17th studio album ‘Game of Sins’ (2016) is yet another worthy addition to an impressive catalogue. Classic rock/metal may not be the most innovative subgenre but it has an immortal quality most modern music lacks. That alone will make this music stand the test of time. (#GMM17)
