SECOND ALBUM FROM GERMAN POWER METALLERS POWERWORLD
After leaving FREEDOM CALL at the end of 2005 Ilker Ersin started to build up his own band POWERWORLD. Ilker wrote every song, produced the demos and searched for the right musicians to complete the band. It was clear, that he would ask his longtime friend Barish Kepic of ex-JADED HEART for the spot as guitarist. With vocalist Steffen Brunner, Nils Neumann ex-FREEDOM CALL on the keyboards and ex-AT VANCE Drummer Jurgen Lucas, the line up was found to record the songs. Drums were recorded by Sascha Gerstner of HELLOWEEN in his G-Tracks studios. Chris Lausmann (BONFIRE/JADED HEART/PINK CREAM 69/VOICES OF ROCK/CORNERSTONE etc.) did the rough mixes, Ilker finished the mixes of all songs and Achim Kohler (BRAINSTORM, PRIMAL FEAR, EDGUY, AVANTASIA etc.) did the mastering. With drummer Simon Michael of SUBWAY TO SALLY they had found a man who was able to play the new songs in the studio in a few days. The band started the search for the right vocalist immediately after the drum-recordings. After a short time the ex-SARGANT FURY/THRESHOLD-frontman Andrew 'Mac' McDermott was found, who brought the necessary self identity and musically maturity to finish the POWERWORLD package, giving the whole sound a more rocky and less mainstream metal sound than the debut. Shortly after that Barish asked drummer Achim Keller of VICTORY to join the band as a full time member. SPV / Steamhammer signed a worldwide deal with POWERWORLD in August 2010.
