Herman Frank, iconic guitarist of bands such as ACCEPT and VICTORY, will release his fifth solo- album, entitled Two For A Lie, May 21, 2021 through powerhouse label AFM Records.
Frank has been an integral part of the German metal scene since the early 80s. Starting with ACCEPT to VICTORY to his solo project, which was launched in 2009, the Hanoverian has proved a receipe for uncompromising heavy metal. With his highly acclaimed solo- records Loyal To None, Right In The Guts, The Devils Ride Out and Fight The Fear, Frank and his comrades-in-arms are causing storms of enthusiasm in both the press and the fans.
Without any doubt, his new album Two For A Lie will seamlessly follow on from this. True to the motto “Never change a winning team”, Herman Frank has once again put his faith in the collaboration with MASTERPLAN front vocalist Rick Altzi and JADED HEART bassist Michael “Mülli“ Müller, newly hired were guitarist Mike Pesin and drummer Kevin Kott on board of the battleship. Like its predecessors, Two For A Lie impresses through Frank’s characteristic guitar play, in which razor-sharp riffs meet rousing solos, Alchi’s brilliant vocals and the rhythm section grooving like clockwork provide the rest.
Following the previously- released singles, “Eye Of The Storm” and just recently, “Venom“, the guitar icon premiered a brand new video for the blistering album opener, “Teutonic Order“! Check out the video below:
Two For A Lie was produced by Herman Frank himself together with co-producer Arne Neurand, recorded and mixed in the venerable Horus Sound Studios in Hannover (Guano Apes, LDC, Revolverheld, Emil Bulls, Subway To Sally), and was mastered by Robin Schmidt (Placebo, Callejon, Beatsteaks & many more). Kai Swillus from “Gestaltungskommando Buntmetall”, who already worked with bands such as SAXON, MOTORHEAD or ANNIHILATOR, created the cover design and artwork.
