Hard Rock




The American hard rock band Hardline was founded in 1991 by brothers Johhny and Joey Gioeli. Their debut ‘Double Eclipse’ was released one year later but soon after they called it quits when they lost their record deal. In 1999 the brothers made a successful comeback, culminating in the release of ‘II’ (2002). Still, Hardline was never a priority to the band members due to their busy schedules with other bands. Johnny Gioeli, the only remaining founding member, concentrated mainly on vocal duties with Axel Rudi Pell and the other band members also had other commitments. In 2016, Johnny Gioeli teamed up with the multi-talented Alessandro Del Vecchio to write and record ‘Human Nature’, an album that seems written for the live stage and that tops many ‘best hard rock album of 2016’ lists.
