It is always a great pleasure to support 21 Octayne with my photography and I wish them a rocket start with their superb Debut-CD! In December 2013, their eagerly awaited first release, the single “The Heart (Save Me)”, reached #1 on Amazon’s hard rock charts in Germany!
21 OCTAYNE are …
Hagen Grohe (The Joe Perry Project) – Vocals
Marco Wriedt (Axxis) – Guitar
Alex Landenburg (Rhapsody) – Drums
Andrew “The Bullet” Lauer (Paul Gilbert) – Bass
… four young and successful musicians from Germany with their debut album “Into The Open”.
After gaining extensive experience in the music business, including album recordings and worldwide touring, the time felt right for the members to form a new band that embraces their individual styles. From catchy pop/rock songs and ballads to heavy rock.
21 OCTAYNE is a true representation of mustcal diversity.
Masterly crafted hard rock at its best for the sophisticated rock listener, packed with powerful vocals, catchy hooks and a groovy rhythm section.
