German melodic metal band POWERWORLD, the brainchild of former FREEDOM CALL and MOON'DOC bassist Ilker Ersin, has enlisted VICTORY drummer Achim Keller.

POWERWORLD's current lineup is as follows:

* Andrew "Mac"McDermott (SARGANT FURY, THRESHOLD) - Vocals
* Barish Kepic (JADED HEART) - Guitar
* Ilker Ersin (FREEDOM CALL, MOON'DOC) - Bass
* Nils Neumann (FREEDOM CALL) - Keyboards
* Achim Keller (VICTORY) - Drums

A photo of the new lineup can be viewed below.

POWERWORLD is currently recording its second album, "Tame Your Demons", which will contain twelve songs and will feature a guest appearance on drums by Simon Michael of SUBWAY TO SALLY.

POWERWORLD wants to complete the production of the new CD as soon as possible and perform at various festivals in Europe this summer.

After his departure from FREEDOM CALL in the middle of 2005, Ersin decided to follow a different musical path and started to work on a project that contained more grooves and less power metal influences.
