BIOGRAPHY
The beginnings of Berlin’s own METAL LAW date back to 1997, when Karsten Degling (vocals, guitar) started the band under the name REUDIG, that later evolved into RAPID FIRE, before settling with the current moniker that reflects the band’s music best. The influences were drawn mostly from classic German metal bands such as ACCEPT, RUNNING WILD, but also from MANOWAR and English metal heroes, IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST.

After some inevitable replacements, mainly because of Karsten’s unwillingness to compromise regarding musical style, late in 2002 Michael Dobbertin (bass) joined the band, finally a partner that completely shared Karsten’s musical visions. Still as REUDIG the band recorded and self-released “Hunter & Prey” CD in 2004.

Early in 2005 Ingo Creß (drums) and Thommy Parchem (guitar), two real metal rockers, joined the band, which is now settled, dedicated to pure heavy metal and aimed at success. METAL LAW (still under the old name RAPID FIRE) was a contestant of the W:O:A Metal Battle 2006 in Berlin and the undisputed favourite of the audience (but unfortunately not of the jury that favored death metal).
