REBELLION Announces New Guitarist

German metallers REBELLION, who recently parted ways with Uwe Lulis (guitar), Gerd Lücking (drums) and Simone Wenzel (guitar), have issued the following update:

"After three members left the band last December, now a replacement for ex-guitarist Uwe Lulis has been found! The new [axeman] is Oliver Geibig [pictured below], who already produced the album 'Born A Rebel' for the band and has been playing for years along with [bassist] Tomi Göttlich in the hard rock band THE MAGIC OF RADIO and SCHLAMMBEIN.

"Currently, REBELLION are looking for a further guitarist and a drummer to complete the lineup once again."

Göttlich has posted an eight-minute video clip (see below) in which he answers fan-submitted questions regarding the recent departures of Lulis, Lücking and Wenzel and the group's future.

REBELLION's latest full-length album (the third part of the "History of the Vikings" saga), "Arise: From Ragnarök to Ginnungagap - The History of the Vikings Volume III", came out in July 2009 via Massacre Records.
