Heavy/Power Metal from Germany
After their breakup with Grave Digger Uwe Lulis and Tomi Göttlich decided to form a new Metalband with the name:„Rebellion“.
The first release was a concept album entitled „Shakespeare‘s Macbeth - A Tragedy in Steel“.
The Album was a great success and is a cult-album in Metal history. The band toured and played several headliner shows.
The second CD „Born a Rebel“ came out in 2003 and was followed by tours with Running Wild, U.D.O. and festivals all
around Europe in 2003 /2004.
With their third album, Rebellion started a trilogy about the Vikings and their Sagas. The first Viking-album was released in
2005 under the title: „Sagas of Iceland - The History of the Vikings – Volume I“.
Drummer Gerd Lücking joined the band, as former drummer Randy Black had to quit his job with Rebellion.
The band played a successful headliner-tour in Germany / Switzerland / Belgium, plus several festivals and headliner
single-shows. End of 2005, original member Björn Eilen was forced to leave the band due to health problems. Simone
Wenzel, one of the best female guitar-players in Germany, was found to take over his part.
In 2007 the band released the second part of the Viking-trilogy: „Miklagard – The History of the Vikings – Volume II“.
The band played festivals and headlinershows in 2007 / 2008. In 2009 they released the third Viking-album
„Arise – From Ginnungagap to Ragnarök – The History of the Vikings – Volume III“ on Massacre Records.
