PARADOX Frontman Suffering 'Serious Illness', Songwriting Sessions Halted

Veteran German power metallers PARADOX have announced that they will not be able to proceed with the songwriting process for their new album due to "a serious sickness" suffered by frontman Charly Steinhauer. "Charly has composed about 30 minutes of great music last year but now couldn't go on," the band write on their web site. "At the moment he [is taking] a complete timeout and we will see when/if we will continue..."

Steinhauer, who had played guitar and sang in the group since their inception in the mid-'80s, had previously announced his decision to concentrate solely on guitar playing due to an unspecified medical condition. The band's last studio album, "Collision Course", was released in 2000 through AFM Records.
