Axel Rudi Pell - Live On Fire

Label : Steamhammer/SPV | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: DVD/Video/Blu-ray

Sjak : The sympathetic German guitar player Axel Rudi Pell is a true believer in the power of repetition, that's for sure! As a result of that his already released studio records show not much variety and originality, but are certainly excellent both in the performance department as well as in the quality of the song material on offer. Also in the live performances of Axel and his band you will seldom find real surprises in the set list, but on stage the band always delivers high quality stuff as well and you'll be ecstazised by the material played.

With 'Live On Fire' Axel delivers his fourth live-DVD after 'Knight Treasures (Live And More)' (from 2003), 'Live Over Europe' (from 2008) and 'One Night Live' (from 2010) and for many metal fan this will be a bit (too) much. The steady growing fanbase of Axel however, among which yours truly can also be counted, will be very appreciative about this, because also this 'Live On Fire' has become a mighty fine live-DVD (and 2-CD). They've chosen to place two complete shows (October 18th 2012 in Cologne and the Rock Of Ages festival in Seebronn from July 28th 2012) on an equal number of video discs (the two CD-version only contains the Cologne concert) and as a result of that both set lists are almost identical. Is that a problem? No, certainly not in my opinion as this fantastic song material never gets boring and both shows can be categorized as great. Already for a number of years Axel has surrounded himself with an excellent band, that is capable of making every show a true happening. Special recognition must of course be given to the American world-class singer Johnny Gioeli, who effortlessly equals his fantastic studio performance on stage. The fact remains that Axel Rudi Pell has again added a high-quality release with this 'Live On Fire' to his extensive back catalogue. Fans of excellently performed traditional heavy metal can (and must) blindly add this release to their collection.
