High Tension.. Wow, richtig coole Abgehmucke. Großartig.

Good old unsung 80’s German metal band! Solid writing, riffs and vox. Melodic,yet with more than enough balls and attitude to satisfy the bangers. Fans of Victory, Talon, and Accept should dig these guys. Great stuff.

Country of origin: Germany
Location: Villingen-Schwenningen, Baden-Württemberg [a state in southwest Germany bordering France and Switzerland]
Status: Active
Formed in: 1979
Genre: Heavy Metal. For fans of Accept, and (early) Dokken
Years active: 1979-present

High Tension counted as Accept or Steeler to Axel Rudi Pell to one of the early bands of the German Heavy Metal scene. Founded in 1979 in Baden-Württemberg. In 1984, the debut “Warrior” appeared, followed in 1986 by the album “Under Tension” and 1987 then “Masters Of Madness”. This kicks pretty hard – but what’s standing out are the guitar solos. Awesome vocals Armin Weisshaar; fantastic voice. Totally underrated band!!!! killer German metal! Bang your head !!!

Very Good Hard & Heavy album, as I love bands that combine both styles Hard Rock / Heavy Metal with elements of the legendary NWOBHM. Although in every country  there were hundreds of bands that came out in the 80s, these Germans are one of the very best. Recommended if you know what a combination of the Hard Rock / Heavy Metal styles sounds like.


The following two songs are not on this album, but you get to see the band in the flesh:
