JARRE/TANGERINE DREAM style Synths & FLOYD/PORCUPINE TREE style guitars in melodic, passionate & powerful brew of instrumental electronic Prog-Rock.

Six years after their first successful collaboration in 2004 with the ‘Contact’ album, 2010 brought a worthy successor in ‘Impact’ where Axel and Max delivered 6 new tracks filled with energetic grooves, rhythmic textures, crying guitars and monstrous riffing soundwalls.

Back in 2008, we were totally blown away by former PYRAMID PEAK member Axel Stupplich’s ‘Voices At Dawn’ album issued under the name AXESS. Playing analogue, digital & native synthesizers, AXESS delivered over 67 minutes of powerful, melodic, rhythmic electronic music on an album that was a total thriller from start to finish, alive with sounds that echoed classic JEAN-MICHEL JARRE and TANGERINE DREAM!
When ‘Fusion’, the stunning follow-up to ‘Voices’ came along in 2010, we just had to delve further into the AXESS and related catalogue, where we discovered not only a series of solo albums by MAXXESS - a multi-talented German musician Max Schiefele playing electric & acoustic guitars and synthesizers, but also two exciting releases produced in 2004 and 2010 where the two artists teamed up under the AXESS-MAXXESS banner, and ‘Impact’ is the second of the two releases.
As with the MAXXESS solo albums the AXESS-MAXXESS releases make you think of instrumental PINK FLOYD or PORCUPINE TREE meeting TANGERINE DREAM - A progressive-electronic crossover, where synthesizers and electric guitars meet in an exciting meld of instrumental fusion that delivers high-energy, melodic music with an added progressive edge brought by the melodic but heavy feel of the MAXXESS guitar sound.
