REBELLION – When you think of German Metal, dozens of legendary bands come to mind, huh? Scorpions, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Warlock, DORO, Primal Fear, EDGUY, Grave Digger, Michael Schenker, Blind Guardian, Unisonic, Sinner, U.D.O., ACCEPT, Rammstein, JORN, Masterplan, Kreator, Sodom, Iron Savior, Running Wild, RAGE, Tankard, Vanden Plas; the list goes on and on!
I suppose my Metal point is that Germany is downright synonymous with: METAL. Instead, make that: Metal Excellence. REBELLION have carved out their very own chapter(s) in the history of German Metal (and worldwide Metal for that matter); chapters that screams out the Metal (musical) competence of such a genuine Metal band. Regardless of lineup changes, REBELLION seems to live by their own name, rebelling against the Metal status quo and/or follow-the-leader mentality.
REBELLION is a German Metal band that in my Metal opinion, have earned both their Metal Warrior and legendary Metal status. I’m talking about a Metal band here that plays True Metal to the ultra muscular core. REBELLION lets their Metal do the talking. Like many of their German Metal peer bands, REBELLION have always maintained a consistent output of quality albums and have recruited an untold number of loyal fans worldwide; without the mainstream acceptance from the auto-tuned infested/commercial charts of the U.S. market. Thank the Metal Gods for that.
A tremendous way to become familiar with REBELLION, (not to mention an instant fan), is to pick up their 2012 digital-only release of: REBELLION – The Best Of Viking History via Massacre Records. At $5.99 (U.S.), you’re getting 14 songs from the potent Metal catalog of REBELLION. Trust in my Metal word, this is the crème de la crème from these Metal Warriors.
The recently released REBELLION studio album is 100% heavy as F**CK and I look upon it as one of the best Metal albums to have been released back in 2012. The overall driving Metal power from Arminius: Furor Teutonicus (Massacre Records) is phenomenal to my ears and senses! I highly recommended this new REBELLION album to ALL Metal fans of any Metal genre. Yes, Arminius: Furor Teutonicus is that powerful of an album. Metal be thy name.
