The band name is Kranken Welpen(German: Sick Puppies?). The members are quite odd, as is the style of metal. Think of what would happen if you combined eighties metal with Polka music. That is exactly what they did. As of yesterday, they signed a promotional deal with Krank Amps, and I shall be getting 35% off everything in the Krank Amplification Catalogue! They are currently working on getting a deal with Jackson unless I can get one with a different company in the coming months. They were impressed with how quickly I was able to learn the riffs they were teaching me.

I have to give a special thanks to Todd. All the lessons on Saturdays primed me for learning these riffs quickly. The best part is, one riff was a run that reminds me of 94 B.

Here is the first music video they have. I warned you, the music is different! Wish me luck! The first full rehearsal is Monday!

Good to hear buddy! Yep, it means Sick Puppies in german...although, the correct name would be "Kranke Welpen".

All the best

Thanks for the support everyone! I think this band will eventually turn into a female fronted version of Korpiklaani.
