*** DEZPERADOZ*** .....Ennio Morricone meet`s Metal

A uniquely crossover between Heavy Rock and Western-Sounds.
Invented and started by Alex Kraft (Onkel Tom, Sodom a.o.)
Originally formed as a project, back then called "DESPERADOS" with Tom Angelripper (Sodom, Onkel Tom) on vocals, turned out to be a real band long ago.

Alex Kraft, singer, guitarist, songwriter and his wild bunch are fillig a gap in the
music world, by transfering the rough feeling of the old italo-western movies into today`s world of Rock / Metal.

After the first strike "Dawn of Dying" (2000 Drakkar Records) wich earns a lot of positive reviews, Alex Kraft decides to take over the lead vocal part after a
a longer break and some lineup changes,

2006, DEZPERADOZ releases the second record "The Legend and the Truth"
A concept-album about the life of the western legend Wyatt Earp.
produced by Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) the album, wich features Tobias Sammet, Michael Weikath, Doro and others for some speaking parts, is published by AFM Records. followed by some support-tours and festival shows.

2008, the third opus "An Eye for an Eye" another album with concept, is released.
It tells the story about a man on the death row back in 1898, a faithful and reigious man who killed his friend for revenge and condemned to death by the state.
Once more this album is produced By Dennis Ward published by AFM Records.

Support shows for acts such as Krokus, Gotthard, Thin Lizzy, Rage, Sodom, Doro,
Volbeat, U.D.O, Tesla and many others, shows that DEZPERADOZ is not just an other stereotypic band, and able to impress different types of audiences.
Festival shows like Wacken, With Full Force, Earthshaker, Summerbreeze and others are done as well as gigs and touring through europe and russia.
