The German Heavy Rockband ARREST was basicly founded in September 1992 (first Idea to form a band). It takes then two more years since Sommer 1994 they became one of the well acknowledged Live-Rock-Acts in their region.
Right from the beginning homemade, honest Heavy Rock-Music, which is not influenced by any trends, is one of the priorities. Still from these early days the band founding members Ralf Weber, Frank Doleczik and Alex Weinrauch are together.
The first two Mini-CDs „Fire And Ice“ and „Survivors Of The Game“ were published 1997 / 1998, as well as their first longplay “Incarcerated” was so in 1999. All these CDs were presented in the American Radiostation AFN (98.7) and the German Radiostation HR3.
At the end of 1999 the former singer “Jerry Donahue” left the band. During the Start of the new millennium ARREST had produced some new songs and “ALEX” did the vocals on a demo tape. As the band listened to his voice, they decide immediately that he will do the job for the future. In the middle of 2000 a new really excellent Drummer “Jerry Mueller” replaced “Norbert Eckert”. After been completed the four musicians played some festivals, open airs and wrote songs for “THE DIFFERENCE” Album.
The ARREST Line Up is :
Alex Weinrauch (Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards, Piano)
Frank Doleczik (Backing Vocals, Guitars)
Ralf Weber (Backing Vocals, Bass)

Reviews from Hellion Records, Powermetal.de, Metal-Inside.de, Metalglory, Nocturnal Hall, Soundbastard etc...

Their style is not simple to describe, but
some say it comes close to bands such as Black Sabbath, Maiden and Royal
Hunt. So better listen to their CDs and decide on your own.
