... so special?
WalzWerk immediately catches your ears and, with interesting songwriting and clever German lyrics, takes up as much space as possible in your head. Conquers the gut feeling with a wild mix of hard guitar riffs and spacey melodies and finally grasps the heart with passionate grooves, hand in hand with a casual sound.
“WalzWerk is rock music for adults. Demanding but accessible. You just banged your head, the next moment you dream head cinema. And on stage, the lady and the four gentlemen create an extremely relaxed mood even during heavy metal parts. ", Frank Goosen, Cabaret artist and author

“Passion and Commitment - Walzwerk consistently goes forward and plays with a concept between musical standards and clarified understatement. The result sweeps away! “, Annette Dabs, the director of the German Forum for Puppet Theater and Puppetry
“With so many people producing music these days the quality can vary. However I’m glad to say that I really enjoyed working on this album. I’m not really a fan of the label ‘prog’ but I get to master a lot of ‘prog’ music. For me prog has to be progressive. Rather than a copy of something from the 70s. So for me the WalzWerk album is very ‘progressive’ with a wide range of originality, influences and interest. Lots of big riffs that rock. Very tight. Interesting ambient sections that aren’t just random noises. Magnificent!“, Steve Kitch, Mastering engineer and keyboardist of the band The Pineapple Thief.
"Absolutely great!", Romy Schmidt, Director of the Prinz Regent Theater
“WalzWerk is an opulent album on which metal, pop and art rock blend dynamically, and in which the interplay (...) creates striking contrasts. There are many of those interferences, when noise meets harmonies, grooves change and sounds and samples overlap ", GITARRE & BASS, Magazine May 2018, WalzWerk „Act iof the Month“
