The English Bio

They say it takes truly outstanding musicians to turn a good composition into an excellent song. Having said that: even brilliant artists need a first-rate original to allow their mastery to shine in its full glory. In other words: you need both, superior song material and exceptional musicians. Following the successful realisation of his debut album Let´s Get Ruthless (2009), which featured a wide range of renowned metal stars, René Thomsen, owner of a company called BRS (Backline Rental Service) and guitarist, composer and bandleader, has repeated this superb combination on his second release, Unbroken! more here

Unbroken is one of the strongest traditional heavy metal albums 2014 had to offer, and is a must-have for fans of Accept, U.D.O., Saxon, Dio and the like. Get your hands on this one, turn it up and bang your head! Thomsen is really on to something here.    more here

Following the success of his 2009 debut album Let´s Get Ruthless,  René Thomsen continues this superb combination for his second release, Unbroken, which includes internationally known guests such as: Udo Dirkschneider, Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell), Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, Fates Warning, Sebastian Bach, Riot), David Vincent (Morbid Angel), Mathias Don Dieth (U.D.O.), and Helge Engelke (Fair Warning, Dreamtide). more here

German Power Metal group, Thomsen, is an exception, proving that songcraft is the focus and this is a team effort.  All in all, Unbroken is a very solid Power Metal album chock full of melody, technical execution, and superior song writing. A few tracks immediately blew me away and some took a while to grow. I did end up taking the time to listen and found the album to be terrific. You will too. more here

René Thomsen and guests offering their answer to the question of whether or not power metal as a whole can still offer something moving and worthwhile. If you're a fan of  the U.S. power metal scene with it's meatier riffs and more straight-forward/guitar-friendly approach to creating moody metal then  this one is definitely going to be a keeper! more
