As a member of bands and projects such as Sinner, Primal Fear, Voodoo Circle, Silent Force, Rock Meets Classic, Go Music or The New Screamers, ALEX BEYRODT is one of the busiest guitarists in the rock/metal scene with an international reputation.
The sheer lack of time is probably one of the reasons why ALEX BEYRODT, who has already shared the stage with Alice Cooper, Glenn Hughes, Steve Lukather, Ian Gillan, Paul Rodgers, Joey Tempest, and Don Felder, just to name a few, has never appeared as a solo artist in his more than 30-year career.
Slowed down by the pandemic, like all colleagues from the cultural industry who are ''Weekend Warriors'' and usually ''everywhere at home, but never to be seen at their home base'', BEYRODT used the forced break as an opportunity to take a close look inside himself and fully engage with his guitar and music.
The result is now available in the form of his first solo album; and in ALEX BEYRODT's case, solo is actually to be understood in the literal sense, because the native Saarlander wrote, recorded, produced ''Weekend Warrior'' completely single-handedly and also recorded all the instruments himself.
And if this already shows the class and versatility of BEYRODT, the realization that ''Weekend Warrior'' is - in contrary to all clichés - not an ordinary shredder record, provides the final proof that it was high time for this album.
''Weekend Warrior'' has become an incredibly personal album on which ALEX BEYRODT talks about his feelings, dreams, inspirations, his musical beginnings, and his career as one of the best and busiest (rock/metal) guitarists we have in the scene, or better expressed, lets his guitar tell for him. In a wonderful, pictorial language, and in the only one that can be understood without words all over the world: music.
