Rebellion – Wyrd bið ful aræd – The History of the Saxons


Tomi Göttlich (bass) is the last remaining original member in Rebellion, a band that arose in 2001, after he and Uwe Lulis (guitar) left Grave Digger. The band has been thru so much adversity that it’s a feat that they are still up and running…

Rebellion is well known for their metal hymns and their historical themed albums: they told their version of the history of the Vikings over three albums. And on their last one, they turned to the history of the Germans, which is also the scene for this heavy metal history lesson.

“Wyrd bið ful aræd – The History of the Saxons” dips into the rise and demise of the Saxons in Germany. The Saxons were a confederation of Germanic tribes, who over the years spread their wings beyond their own border, most notably to England in the 5th century.

But enough historical background… Let’s turn to the music, and once more they stand tall and fight the fight, they’ve fought for almost 15 years: TRUE METAL with razor sharp guitar riffs, strong choirs and a powerful backbone.

They deliver the goods once more – with fists in the air and heads banging all-around! Yeah, this is plain and simple heavy metal with a story to tell. Rebellion sounds and feels just like expected and they are as strong as ever, playing the music they love and if you like their earlier albums, then I am sure this one will be just right for you as well.

When I kicked this site off back in 2003, I had no idea that it would turn into what it has become. I am very proud of what we've done and achieved over the years. Musically I have a soft spot for 80s inspired hard rock, but my favourite music and bands are all to be found in the progressive universe these days.
