Biography

In 1988 after sending in only one demo song AXXIS were signed to EMI Electrola. The debut album “Kingdom of the Night”, 1989 which was already released in Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia and the USA sold 100 000 copies immediately. It became the best selling debut album by a Hard Rock band in Germany in 1989. “Axxis II” marked a similar huge success in 1990, followed by the authentic and energetic live release “Access All Areas” a year later. The ambitious “The Big Thrill” became a best seller in 1993.

This album was a big turning point in the career of this five-piece band. Produced by Joey Balin and recorded in Philadelphia, it was the first international production by AXXIS.


In the following years AXXIS had traveled thousands of miles. One if the most impressive destinations was Japan, where Bernhard Weiss and guitarist Walter Pietsch performed a couple of acoustic live shows due to the release of the Japanese only CD “Profile”. The band became known worldwide!



The album “Matters Of Survival” was produced in Los Angeles in 1995, the city of angels which is uncritically praised as a Metal capitol by some, a city where glamor, violence and homelessness live together very closely. An impression, which was responsible for the choice of the album title.


With Keith Olsen (FLEETWOOD MAC, WHITESNAKE, FOREIGNER, SCORPIONS) the band had a producer who had already worked in the biz since 25 years.

    The new two albums coming out sound more hard-rockish than power metal (Axxis pretty much haven't been hard-rock since Time Machine), but they're also fun as heck. Plus it's Axxis! And two albums in the same day! D

    Doom Of Destiny is quickly becoming one of my favorite power metal albums of all time.

    well, the new reDISCOvered release may piss many hard-core fans off, but I gotta' say there are some of the best covers EVER on this release! Truly a side of the band that I've not heard. I like it.

    I really like the debut by Axxis. Then there was a long time when they did albums that were not so special to me. Then Paradise In Flames was released and was I positively surprised. That sure is an excellent album. Doom Of Destiny is good too. :) Paradise In Flames really was and still is a phenomenal album!

    "Utopia is a bit disappointing. And all that stuff before Time Machine is neither hard nor heavy. Paradise In Flames / Doom of Destiny are the best!" I couldn't agree More!!!!!!!
