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)
Jerry Mueller (Backing Vocals, Drums)

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

Frank: Guitars

Alex: Vox + Guitars


Ralf: Bass Guitars

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.

The Liveshow of the five musicians consists of professionalism as well as the high quality of presenting Coverversions of known Hardrock/Heavy Metal Classics.

In October 2002 their album “THE DIFFERENCE” was released and got well reviews in nearly all significant and important Metal Magazines !

At the 9th October 2003 it came to a wonderful “milestone” in their career, as they got in touch with Mr. Alfie Falckenbach from Music Avenue, who signed the band for his label “MAUSOLEUM”.

At the 6th of September 2004 their new album “NIGHT STALKER” will be released at the legendary Metal label “MAUSOLEUM a Division of MUSIC AVENUE”. So look out for it!
