Victory  


Formed in 1984 from the ashes of an earlier German rock band named Fargo, Victory ranks among the elder statesmen of German hard rock bands, as their earlier albums such as Don't Get Mad ... Get Even and Hungry Hearts played well in the 80's both in Europe and the US. Several members have been seen in other bands over the years (typical of the German metal scene), perhaps most notably guitarist Herman Frank, who now leads the band but also a member of Accept.
