I first heard Michael Bormann on the Jaded Heart album, "Slaves and Masters" and i've been following his career ever since.

He's quite prolific,. Many different projects, from AOR to Metal. He appeared on "The Voice" Germany in 2014 apparently. I don't know how he went, but at least he received some sort of public recognition. Although, I don't know how well known he was in Germany prior to that. Maybe PeterS could let us know.

Not everything he does is Killer, but considering the amount of work he's done over the years, he's got a pretty good strike rate.

Really liked the stuff he did with Jaded Heart on those first 6 or so discs,Mystery Eyes & Inside Out being very good,my fav probably The Journey Will Never End,but apart from the excellent Charade debut and ok follow up I havent been that big on the stuff,some of Letter X and Rain,prefer his more melodic stuff,for me thats when hes at his best.

He release 3 singles with a band called High Voltage (not American or AC/DC tribute band ) and T.A.X with his brother Dirk.

Yeah, I think it's "High Vaultage". Both pre Jaded Heart.

You can't beat his Jaded Heart stuff, although I really like "Redrum", "Silent Force" and "Powerworld".

High Voltage was 83 to 85 , where T.A.X was only 88.

I noticed you don't have Crystal Ball.

Ahh, okay. I decided when I started these threads, only one song per project (not easy) and that I wasn't going to include Backing Vocal credits.

Just Lead Vocals or Co-Lead Vocals.

I have the T.A.X. demos and several of them ended up as Charade and Jaded Heart tunes.

    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts. 
    • It's been a while since we've had the Mr.AOR advent calendar.  Nice one. I look forward to the next 24.
