Paradox

Although they didn't fare nearly as well as fellow Teutonic thrashers like Kreator and Sodom in terms of career longevity or commercial success, Würzburg, Germany's Paradox certainly seemed, on the surface, to have a better shot at the big time with their more melodic and accessible style. Formed in February of 1986 by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Charly Steinhauer, lead guitarist Markus Spyth, bassist Roland Stahl, and drummer Axel Blaha, the group was heavily influenced by the biggest of all thrash bands -- Metallica -- and quickly parlayed a few impressive demos into a deal with Roadrunner Records and a very impressive debut album, Product of Imagination, the following year. This earned Paradox many accolades in their homeland, with both Rock Hard and Metal Hammer magazines naming them "Best Newcomer," while fans voted them favorite German band behind only all-time heroes Accept and the Scorpions. But Paradox remained largely undiscovered beyond Germany's borders, and despite closing out the year on a high with performances at Holland's Dynamo and Portugal's Festa Avante festivals, the group's sophomore album, Heresy (produced by top thrash producer Harris Johns and introducing new bassist Matthias Schmidt), became something of a make-or-break proposition by the time it was released in 1989. Sadly, and despite showing marked songwriting improvement over its predecessor, the final verdict was indeed "break," and Paradox fell apart due to disappointing sales and after being dropped by Roadrunner. A new version of the band was assembled by Steinhauer in 1999 with the express purpose of playing at the Wacken Open Air Festival, but then stuck around long enough to record a third Paradox album, Collision Course, in 2000. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Please fix these by adding a genre next to the artist or something. I just added this to my dubstep/dnb station because I thought it was just Paradox the DnB artist. Not a metal band.

corporate pollution is by a completely different band. the music genome project is a farce.

As with many Pandora biographies, this one seems messes up. Techno-EBM music and a heavy metal group's bio.

The "drum funk" was kind of the part I liked, in this song anyway.. the vocals seemed to be a bit of a mess.. something I accept with a good drum beat i spose.. all round I wouldn't and didn't skip the song because of it.. but mb why they didn't see more success.. I'm not well schooledin my metal genre terms.. this sounded 80s a little but also not knowing better it sounded a little ahead of the times.. pre 90s metal when the genre really seemed to me to take off and branch out.. lamb of go
