Charly Steinhauer, guitarist/vocalist of long-running German metallers PARADOX, underwent open-heart surgery on December 27. His bandmates state: “We’ve been in the hospital to visit Charly and he’s getting better. He wants to thank you all for the good wishes and the love and support you showed him in the last few days! That really does mean a lot to him.
“We shall tell you: PARADOX will never die! As long as it’s possible for him, he will write new stuff, and if possible, we will return on stage!
“All planed shows for the next half year had been canceled, but if Charly‘s health condition allows it, we want to be back on stage in August at Queens Of Metal Open Air!”
The official lyric video for the song “Brutalized” from PARADOX can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s new album, “Tales Of The Weird”, which was released on December 14 via AFM Records. The CD was produced by Steinhauer and was mixed and mastered by Victor Bullok (a.k.a. V. Santura; TRIPTYKON, DARK FORTRESS) at Woodshed Studio in Landshut, Germany. The cover art was created by Claudio Bergamin.
“Tales Of The Weird” features guest appearances by Bob Katsionis (FIREWIND) and Gus Drax (SUNBURST).
The new PARADOX lineup is as follows:
Charly Steinhauer (vocals, guitar)
