Latest release: TOUCHDOWN
He is one of the epitomes of international heavy metal: With his unique voice, Udo Dirkschneider has been shaping legendary rock anthems since the ‘80s. Spending five decades on stages, Dirkschneider is a true icon of the metal scene.
Despite his long history and the many ups and downs that rock’n’roll life entails, Udo Dirkschneider continues to write his own story and never ceases to amaze. This year is no exception. His band U.D.O.’s new album »Touchdown« will be released on August 25th, and once again the name says it all. Just as the “touchdown” in American football describes an important goal for players and teams, the same applies to the album and Udo Dirkschneider. After the difficult years of the pandemic and the split from bassist Tilen Hudrap, U.D.O. are back with a true touchdown, and deliver it at the start of the new football season. Anthemic, brutal and authentic beyond all measure, this is yet another musical milestone in the band’s career.
