Biography

Leipzig, Germany (1991 – present)

Spring 1991, Leipzig, Germany. Three friends come together with the idea of forming a band. For the moment they just meet to make a lot of noise and call it rehearsal.
No beginning is an easy one. So it wasn’t for them either. It was Jens-Uwe Helmstedt, who had already written a few lyrics by then, who started composing the first songs. Although he worked at a synthesizer the sound of the band was guitar oriented from the beginning on. The style was clear. It should be Rock - Gothic Rock with its roots in the 80’ies. Erik Wolf became the guitar player of the band and Thomas Böttcher took over the keyboard parts. Soon after, Christiane completed the line-up at the bass guitar.

The first two songs “It Comes the Night” and “Behind Walls” (recorded at the rehearsal room) gained them immediate success at a band competition. Now they had to play live at a festival and it was time to invent an appropriate band name. That was not so easy and nearly led into the first serious band crisis. At a last instant the band was notified under the name AGE OF HEAVEN. In the meantime more songs were written and thus the challenge started to play the whole live set with own songs. The show was a great success and inspired the band to continue its way.

More local shows followed. October 19, 1991 AOH supported INVINCIBLE SPIRIT at the first Moonchild Festival at Leipzig’s Eiskeller and played in front of a full house. Interesting remark: This was the first main event of the Moonchild Agency, the guys who later on founded the world known Wave-Gotik-Treffen.
