Some bands are formed together through newspaper ads, others are the net result of a prolonged booze session at the local pub, yet the DEAD END HEROES were formed by accident. A good accident! Whilst the initial discussions began around a solo album of Swiss drummer Daniel Voegeli (ME & THE REST), the project grew arms and legs and developed into an immense passion - a completely fully operational band that excelled at having fun sharing their common love of Hard Rock.

After Voegeli had assembled his collection of instrumental songs he contacted exceptional Guitarist and Producer Rolf Munkes (EMPIRE, TONY MARTIN, MAJESTY) to oversee the disc’s production. However, Munkes was so impressed by Voegeli's drumming and initial song ideas that he encouraged him to develop a fully functioning band around the tunes and work towards completing an album.

The first port of call was German vocalist and session musician Carsten Lizard Schulz (EVIDENCE ONE, DOMAIN, LAVALLE) who took Voegeli's instrumentals under his wing and gave them new life. Through his engaging lyrics and ear candy hooks they developed into real songs with Schulz' trademark stamp alongside Voegeli's bedrock base.

On Schulz's recommendation, the next member to join the fold was Scottish bassist Paul Logue (EDEN'S CURSE, DOOGIE WHITE, DAVID READMAN, LAVALLE), who had worked with him on several productions. Logue at first was hesitant to belong to any group out with his main band but succumbed after completing the recording sessions at his studio in Scotland, such was the strength of the material.

Last but by no means least, to add the missing Classic Rock ingredient to the recipe was Schulz' long-time friend and world-class Hammond Organist Holger Seeger (MIDNITE CLUB, IAIN ASHLEY HERSEY). His Hammond gave the songs the final flavour they were missing whilst a classy seventies touch and vibe.

All five members were without doubt absolutely certain that this had become more than just a studio project and the DEAD END HEROES were born. Sitting musically somewhere between late seventies and early eighties hard rock with a hint of DEEP PURPLE, a pinch of KROKUS and an extra serving of classic MICHAEL SCHENKER, their addictive cocktail is simply good time old-fashioned Hard Rock that packs a punch.

Sometimes ... it just works!

The idea for Acacia Avenue began back in 2008. Founding member, Torben Enevoldsen (Fate, Fatal Force, Section A), spent most of that year writing new material. Some of this new material came to be very melodic hard rock/AOR, and the idea of doing a full album in this style quickly emerged. In order to spice things up however, Enevoldsen decided to ask a few good friends of his to participate, both as singers, but also as co-writers.  

The debut album featured Tony Mills (Ex-TNT, Shy), Geir Rönning (Radioactive), Torben Lysholm (Pangea, Mysterell) and Lars Säfsund (Work Of Art) on vocals. Torben did the bass, keyboards and guitars, as well as both lead and backing vocals on a few songs himself, and Thomas Heintzelmann (Decoy) did the drums. The self-entitled debut album was released on Lion Music in January 2010.

Enevoldsen continued doing various projects, but at the end of 2010, Torben was asked to join the Danish hard rock band Fate. He agreed and joined the band in January 2011. Although busy with Fate, Enevoldsen never stopped working on new material of his own. So the idea of doing another Acacia Avenue album was never far away. Torben grew up listening to bands like Boston, Journey, Toto and Survivor, so he thoroughly enjoyed writing in this very melodic and somewhat softer style.

New songs were written and the first singer to get involved was Rob Moratti (Ex-Saga, Final Frontier). Torben and Rob had met each other on MySpace, years before Rob joined Saga, and had discussed the possibility of working together. Acacia Avenue turned out to be the perfect vehicle to pursue this desire.

Apart from Rob, the new album features vocal performances by Steve Newman (Newman), Torben Lysholm (Pangea, Mysterell), Albin Ljungqvist, Mikael Roupé (Bamboo Brothers), Peter Sundell (Grand Illusion, Decoy) and Nicklas Sonne (Defecto).

Once again, Torben was in charge for all the bass, keyboards and guitars, as well as singing background vocals on a few songs. New drummer, Dennis Hansen (Fatal Force) did the drums, and like last time, the majority of the recordings took place at Funny Farm Studios in Denmark, which is Torben's own studio.

The new album, entitled “Cold”, was mixed and mastered at Funny Farm Studios by Torben Enevoldsen. Enevoldsen also produced the album.

Line-up:Rob Moratti – Vocals, Steve Newman – Vocals, Albin Ljungqvist – Vocals, Mikael Roupé – Vocals, Torben Lysholm – Vocals, Peter Sundell – Vocals, Nicklas Sonne – Vocals, Torben Enevoldsen - Guitars, bass, keyboards., vocals, Lars Frandsen-Melau - piano on ”Cold”, Dennis Hansen - Drums

Track list:01 Time (Enevoldsen/Newman) , 02 Love Will Survive (Enevoldsen/Moratti), 03 It's Over (Enevoldsen/Ljungqvist), 04 Out Of The Business, (Waybill/Anderson/Cotten/Prince/ Steen/Welnick/Spoon), 05 Signs Of Love (Enevoldsen/Moratti), 06 Cold (Enevoldsen/Walsh), 07 Angelina - (Enevoldsen/Newman), 08 You And I (Enevoldsen/Roupé), 09 Calling Out (Enevoldsen/Sonne), 10 How Many Nights (Enevoldsen/Lysholm), 11 Freedom From Doubt (Enevoldsen)

Dies ist das Märchen von Alice und Vincent im Kampf um die Seele des jeweils Anderen. „Super Duper Alice Cooper” verbindet Audio-Interviews und zahlreiches Material von Konzerten, TV-Shows und Filmauftritten mit dramatischen Überschriften und medialer Präsenz von und mit Alice Cooper. Sämtliche Höhepunkte seiner Karriere werden detailliert beleuchtet und durch Beiträge einiger der größten Musikikonen wie Iggy Pop, Elton John, John Lydon, Bernie Taupin, Dee Snider und natürlich auch Alice Cooper in Szene gesetzt. Dies ist die ultimative, ungewöhnliche und einzigartige Geschichte eines Mannes und Mysteriums, genannt Alice Cooper.

Captain Black Beard made it's live debut on the 31st of October 2009 and has since been playing most of the clubs in Stockholm. At the end of 2010 the band decided to pick it up a notch and record a full length album. Having been in talks with the biggest rock producers in Sweden - Chips Kiesbye (Sator, The Hellacopters), Tobias Lindell (Europe, Mustasch), Patrik Frisk (Takida, Corroded) - the band chose to work with David Castillo (Opeth, Katatonia) who had already shown himself capable when working on the bands single "Rock Is My Life".
The completion of the CD was celebrated together with hundreds of friends and fans at Göta Källare in Stockholm on the 28th of May, 2011. In the fall the band made their first concerts abroad as they did a short tour of the U.S.
Captain Black Beard's debut CD has been hailed in the press with tons of great reviews all over the world, from Australia to Brazil, in magazines such as Classic Rock, Classic Rock AOR, Sweden Rock, Fireworks, Power Play, Black Velvet and Red Hot Rock. It was also named one of the "Albums Of The Year So Far" by legendary journalist Geoff Barton of Classic Rock.

2012 saw the band playing in the U.K. for the first time, headlining Summer Nights Rock Fest and gearing up for the next album, among other things.

Most of 2013 has been dedicated to the making of the bands second album, and they signed a deal with Dead End Exit Records in the beginning of 2014. "Before Plastic" will be released in May 2014 with lots of live performances to follow.
