Paradox

The German band Paradox formed in 1986 and released two capable thrash albums during the initial late-eighties boom, these being the strongly Metallica-inspired Product Of Imagination in 1987 and the more complex Heresy two years later. The band then disappeared for almost a decade, until guitarist Charly Steinhauer brought together a new lineup, releasing Collision Course in 2000. Since then the band has resembled a Steinhauer solo project, as the lineups have continued to mutate over the years, yet the band still churns out quality thrash metal albums, with the most recent album being Tales Of The Weird in 2012.
