From legendary German metal guitarist Axel Rudi Pell comes the sixth in his critically acclaimed series of ballads, The Ballads VI.
Ballads play a very special role in the history of rock music. Firstly, they document the emotional side of the genre and show that behind (almost) every rocker`s hard chest beats a soft heart. Secondly, those quieter songs are being played by radio stations without rock-affinity – and are loved by listeners for their emotional depth. And thirdly, in an increasingly hectic world, ballads offer brief moments of pause, of reflection on the essential things in life. So it`s no wonder that the ballad compilations of the Axel Rudi Pell Band are an absolute success.
Over 250,000 copies have been sold of The Ballads I (1993) to The Ballads V (2017) alone, and nine (!) of the current Top 10 most streamed Axel Rudi Pell songs on Spotify are ballads. That's more than enough reason therefore, why fans of the German guitarist and songwriter regularly push for a continuation of this release series. The Ballads VI continues that series on CD, double vinyl LP and as digital download, and contains five brand new songs.
RIYL: Whitesnake, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Scorpions, Michael Schencker, Gillan, DIO, Heaven & Hell.
