Bio:

MAD MAX is a Münster melodic Hard Rock outfit debuted with a line-up of vocalist Andreas Baesler, guitarists Wilfred Schneider and Jürgen Breforth, bassist Thomas Hoffman and drummer Uwe Starck, cutting a self-financed, eponymous album for issue in 1982. This offering was subsequently re-issued via Roof Music in 1983. The band signed to Roadrunner Records and new singer Michael Voss, then just nineten years old, featured on the second album ‘Rollin’ Thunder’, released in October 1984. ‘Rollin’ Thunder’ was also granted a valuable US release on the Metal Blade label.The band then replaced Hoffmann with new bassist Jürgen Sander. MAD MAX evolved further when both Schneider and Starck vacated their positions to join fellow Münster Heavy Metal band Carrie. 1985’s ‘Stormchild’ album witnessed new recruits being drafted in the form of bassist Roland Bergmann, drummer Axel Kruse and guitarist Christopher Wegmann. The single ‘Fox On The Run’, from 1986, was a cover of the Sweet classic.MAD MAX guitarist Chris Gerhard (‘Angel’) Schliefer was eventually to join SINNER for their ‘Comin’ Out Fighting’ album in 1986 and has also enjoyed stints in the ranks of Pretty Maids, Bonfire and the rejuvenated Sabu. Drummer Axel Kruse currently plays with German Melodic Rock outfit Jaded Heart.Their final Roadrunner album release, the Dirk Steffens produced ‘Night Of Passion’, arrived in 1987.Mad Max debuted in 1982 with their self-titled album and managed to gain a lot of success in Europe and Japan in the mid-80's before fading away in 1989. Michael Voss and Jürgen Breforth reunited and put out a comeback album in 1999. Six years later the whole band has reemerged again and put out three albums in 2006 and 2007 and Here We Are in 2008.Mad Max will be supporting German heavy metal guitarist Axel Rudi Pell during the Circle Of The Oath Tour during April & May in 2012

Album:

Third album plus Maxi single "Love On The Run" (1986) with 3 tracks.This album is the last of the 80’s Mad Max (and likely the last of anything worthwhile getting from them? I dunno) and though still kicking a lot of ass, it is softer and more melodic than albums like their strong sophomore effort, the very much metal ‘Rollin’ Thunder’ that marked a radical departure from their lame first effort. By this stage, both bass and drums duties had been handed over since the recording of said second album, and the band was in quite a bit of turmoil. Uwe Starck had long since been fired on drums, and his successor, Axel Kruse steps in here for his second album behind the kit. All these lineup changes took their toll (even in the midst of several very strong albums), and Roadrunner could put up with it no longer with these stresses. Following the releases of this album, they axed the band, which lead to their demise, until re-uniting in the late 80’s from what I understand.This is a strong album – more melodic and US AOR influenced than the early works, but still retaining plenty of metal, and dazzling guitar efforts, as well as the strong impassioned vocals of Voss, whose voice and delivery are really a signature of the outfit, even though he came in at album # 2. Some tracks are still solidly metal, like the dark and ominous ‘R.I.P.’ with a guitar lead tone that’s very passionate, moody and beautiful, leading into the harmonic-infused galloping cruncher ‘Drive Through the Sky’. Tracks like ‘Wild and Seventeen’ are pure pop-metal anthem domination. This song is awesome; very much sitting in that melodic heavy metal category, this one sounds very akin to a mid paced track from the early Dokken albums, and features a strong hook in Voss’ chorus delivery. It’s quality, catchy efforts like this that prove how awesome 80’s pop metal can be, and pisses all over most of the wannabe US bands from the same period. The opener has the same general feel about it; big hooks, power melodies, energy, enthusiasm, with an almost poppish vibe.This is a great album and strong representation of the subgenre. Good bands like this are what people don’t know of or consider when they make statements saying all this type of stuff is shitty and without merit. Sure, things might get a bit too formulaic and saccharin in tracks like ‘Hearts on Fire’ which sounds like Firehouse, but a good majority of the songs have more metal orientated guitar feels, even if the production on the album washes stuff out, in typical commercial fashion. This is one of the better 3 albums from this great, and forgotten act, along with ‘Rollin Thunder’ and it’s successor. If you’re a fan of Dokken, or you like 80’s glam in terms of Firehouse etc, or you like the power melody sorta stuff like Sound Barrier, Luv Hunter, Horizon, Europe, this comes strongly recommended. ‘Love Loaded’ and ‘Wild and Seventeen’ are definite highlights, and watch out for solid guitar performances throughout; passionate leads that sound like something from Vinnie Moore. Very good stuff here, and criminally overlooked.
