With an impressive seventeen releases in nineteen years, the Axel Rudi Pell band is among the most consistent, long lasting and creative acts in music today. Very few German guitarists have had such a long and successful career as the musician from Bochum, whose unmistakable signature marks not only his characteristic guitar style, but also his compositional skills. 
November 4th 2008 will see the arrival of his eighteenth offering, Tales of the Crown, a haunting studio album featuring ten brand-new compositions. "Our fans will get just the kind of songs they have come to know and expect from me and my band," says Pell, adding. "“plus a few little innovations." Axel is referring to the contemporary touch which some of his latest tracks feature, mainly in terms of rhythm. "But don't worry, these modern approaches are only gradual and don't affect the typical flair of my songs."

Tales of the Crown was recorded at Gelsenkirchen's Redhouse Studios by the tried and tested line-up of Axel Rudi Pell, American vocalist, Johnny Gioeli, keyboardist Ferdy Doernberg, bassist Volker Krawczak and drummer Mike Terrana. The album was produced by Axel Rudi Pell and sound engineer Charlie Bauerfiend, who also mixed the ten new songs. The artwork for the cover was created by the Columbian artist, Felipe Machado Franco, who did the artwork for Axel's previous release.
