The project Eisbrecher is Alexx Wesselsky (lyrics/vocals) and Noel Pix (composition/keyboards, guitars, programming); both were already successful before Eisbrecher with the rock-group Megaherz in the German-speaking world as well as abroad (above all, in the USA). The music from Eisbrecher is progressive electronic trip-rock. The electronics form the base, onto which Alex and Noel build harder or softer tones towards melodies. The programming is the heart of the Eisbrecher-esque vision of modern rock: interesting songs, progressively packaged, and danceable. The original positioning of hard guitar riffs and driving bass lines further clarify Eisbrecher's understanding of electronic rock. In this context, the deep voice of Alex adapts melodiously and varying: it speaks, it sings, it feels, it lives. "It's getting cold!" In their lyrics, Eisbrecher go on a journey through private and interpersonal states of feeling in a world growing cold. It's about the "me" and "you" as we're in the here and now; it's about what you make of it. Noel Pix has been working since 1996 in the professional camp and can look back at his career up to this point as a producer, singer, guitarist, arranger, and programmer at over 80 releases as well as gold and platinum awards. Among others, he was awarded with the BDA and ADC awards for various multimedia-installations. He played from 1998 until 2000 with Alex in Megaherz, where he was responsible for the electronic element and moreover, composed most of the songs. Music is his life and the range of his creative works speaks for the great openness opposite all the styles. For Alexx Wesselsky, the professional career began with the first signing of Megaherz in 1997. Aside from his career with Megaherz, he has been working since 1999 as a studio singer and lyric writer for various projects (among others, a platinum production). As voice, head, and composer he stayed until the end of 2002 as the front man of Megaherz, which he founded in 1993. The desire for something new and for hard music beyond current metal-clichs was there for both Alex and Noel which they brought together again in the Fall of 2002, after both had been going their own ways for almost two years, not least to recover from each other, and the project Eisbrecher was born. Alexx and Noel got to know each other in 1997 during the production of the Megaherz-Debut "Wer Bist Du" (Alex had unknowingly academically dealt with one of Noel's releases in the context of his German studies course a year before). From 1998 until 2000 they got to love and hate each other and vice versa; Alex -- the charismatic, impulsive, perverse, 2-meter troublemaker -- and Noel -- the sensible, superdisciplined, charming, cheeky musical genius -- have taken everything apart and put it back together again. They tore, avoided and tolerated each other. The result of this process is called Eisbrecher.
