Biography

Warlock is the name for several artists.
1. A heavy metal band from Germany
2. An electronic musician from England
3. A rapper from England
4. A psychedelic band from the United States

1.) A German heavy metal music band from Düsseldorf, originally assembled in late 1982.
Warlock spent most of the year of 1983 playing in different German clubs, eventually building a steady fan base. After recording a demo and sending it to record labels, the band obtained a contract with independent Belgian label Mausoleum.

The “Mark I” line-up (Doro Pesch on vocals, Peter Szigeti and Rudy Graf on the guitars, Frank Rittel on the bass and Michael Eurich on the drums) recorded the albums Burning the Witches (from 1984) and Hellbound (from 1985), making European tours to market the releases. In early 1985, Warlock signed a contract with label Phonogram.

Later that year, in the middle of the tour for the Hellbound album, guitarist Rudy Graf left the band and was replaced by Niko Arvanitis (ex-Stormwind).

True As Steel, released on August 18, 1986, got a fair amount of North American radio airplay due to the hit single Fight For Rock. After this album’s release, their first music video for MTV was produced, for the song “Fight For Rock”.In August 1986 Warlock opened for the Monsters of Rock at the Maimarktgelände in Mannheim, West Germany when the Scorpions were headlining the all day concert. Def Leppard, Ozzy, MSG and Bon Jovi were also there.
