Charly Steinhauer, guitarist/vocalist of long-running German metallers PARADOX, is scheduled to undergo open-heart surgery this Christmas Eve. He says, "I will survive and continue to write good music for you. PARADOX will never die. Whether I can ever again go on stage again, I do not, however, know."
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).
