;; There aren’t many artists around whose career has already lasted a quarter of a century. But then, there
are even fewer who have experienced no setbacks whatsoever in 25 years. And there are only a few
guitarists in the world of rock music who have created their own brand just with their name, causing over
1.5 million people to buy their music. Axel Rudi Pell is one of those rare exceptions. And so it doesn’t come
as a surprise that his latest offering “Into The Storm” is also one of his best; after all, anniversaries are
always special.
;; Although this is the fifteenth studio album (featuring his own material) in Pell’s career to date, he didn’t
approach it any different than its predecessors. “There hasn’t been one day in my life when I haven’t been
pushed by Ronnie James Dio’s spirit to write something mystical,” the 53-year-old explains his motivation.

changes, there wasn’t any of the usual background noise that seems to have become the rule in this
industry. A fact Pell has every right to be proud of: “We’re all professionals and we behave like
;; So what to do? As Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult etc.) has always been one
of his favorite drummers, he was on the top of Pell’s list. And now Rondinelli has joined the band, as simple
as that. No miracle, but the result of Axel’s excellent reputation within the hard rock and metal community.
“Bobby had heard a lot about me and immediately joined.”
