Inspired by northern mythology ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION's new album features 10 brand-new unadulterated songs, including a track with the German title "Stark Von Oben".
ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION's story starts in the year 1985: In a musical world of hairspray and spandex, two long-haired, leather-clad rockers were introduced to each other by their "exotic dancer" girlfriends. One, a graphic artist and poet, the other, a budding philosopher. They immediately dropped everything, joined forces and created the dirtiest, wildest band of all time. One year later, they signed to Polygram, released, the groundbreaking "High Priest of Love" EP, and subsequently the "Tattooed Beat Messiah" album, containing the well received single "Prime Mover".
Overnight, they accidentally changed the look of all the rock bands of the time from the obligatory spandex, eye liner and tinsel, to rough biker jackets, engineer boots and goatees. MÖTLEY CRÜE declared them to be their favorite band and immediately restyled themselves for the "Girls, Girls, Girls" record.
ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION grew in notoriety, touring the world and America, co-headlining arenas and theaters with GUNS N' ROSES and found themselves at home playing festivals and baseball stadiums with IRON MAIDEN. After attending a ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION concert at the Hammersmith Odeon and giving it his seal of approval, Alice Cooper took to the studio and recorded the ZODIAC MINDWARP tune "Feed My Frankenstein", which was later performed in the film "Wayne's World"... The critical acclaim of ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION did, however, cause some rare misfortune, when they lost their young naive bass player to the lures of THE CULT. The band soldiered on regardless. Sometime later, in Paris, Slam Thunderhide, their drummer, decided to put down his sticks to become a go-go dancer in Vancouver.
Present day: With "The Cat" shaking the Earth on drums and "Jack Shitt" rumbling the low frequencies, they ride again, honing their skills playing for the Viking descendants in Scandinavia. From these tough, manly ordeals, a new set of recordings have been forged. "We Are Volsung" is the result, a celebration in the Norse tradition. 10 songs of pure unadulterated rock.
