UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER Planning More Russian Duets

German heavy metal veteran Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O., ACCEPT) will offer a special bonus to his Russian fans by recording two fantastic duets with hard rockers ANJ on the track "Pugachev" (from ANJ's new studio album, "100 Miles Straight Ahead") and pop stars FAKTOR-2 on the song "Cry Soldier Cry" (from the new U.D.O. full-length CD, "Mission X"). Both duets will be recorded in Russian.

Dirkschneider's collaborations with ANJ and FAKTOR-2 are not the first time Udo has worked with a Russian artist. Back in 2001, Dirkschneider contributed his vocals to the song "Shtil" by the Russian band ARIA. He followed it up with the track "Trainride In Russia", which appeared on U.D.O.'s album "Thunderball", released on AFM Records in 2004.

Dirkschneider will make a promotional appearance in Moscow, Russia between October 18 and October 22. The program will consist of a press conference, the recording of the aforementioned duets, a video shoot for ANJ's "Pugachev", a signing session, and an after-party at a local metal club and a fan meet-and-greet.
