Biography

Fürstenfeldbruck, Germany (2003 – present)

Eisbrecher is an / band from Fürstenfeldbruck, Germany. The band consists primarily of Alexx Wesselsky (vocals) and Noel Pix (lead guitar and programming), with live support from Jürgen Plangger (guitar), Oli Pohl (bass), René (drums), and Maximator (keyboards and programming). Jürgen replaced former guitarist Felix Primc; Oli Pohl replaced former bass guitarist Martin Motnik. Eisbrecher’s style belongs to the so called Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) subgenre of hard rock.

After leaving Megaherz because of creative differences in 2003, Alexx Wesselsky got together with Noel Pix, who composed the synths and programming for Megaherz’s albums Himmelfahrt and Kopfschuss. Eisbrecher, the brainchild of the two men, combines their musical ideas, concepts, and styles.

Eisbrecher, like Megaherz, has a much stronger fan base abroad (especially in the USA) than in Germany itself.

The band’s name in translation from German means “Icebreaker” (not the kind you experience in parties and at meetings, but rather the special-purpose ship or boat designed to move and navigate through ice-covered waters). Indeed, the band’s lyrics and slogans often include terms of ice and sailing, such as “Ahoi” (Ahoy) and “Es wird kalt” (It’s getting cold). The band’s frontman, Alexx Wesselsky, often wears sailor’s and military clothing in performances.

The band released its debut album “Eisbrecher” in 2004. A second album, called “Antikörper,” was released on October 20, 2006.
