Rebellion is a German power metal band. It was formed in 2001 when guitarist Uwe Lulis left Grave Digger in 2000, taking ex-Grave Digger bassist Tomi Göttlich with him.[1]

Band history

The band's first album was a concept album about William Shakespeare's work Macbeth, and included spoken passages with members of the band and other people as the story's characters.

The second album involved more standard heavy-metal lyrics – about motorcycles, metal, war, etc. – and the music was somewhat rougher.

In 2005 they released the first part of what is intended to be a trilogy about the Vikings and Norse mythology. In the beginning of 2007 they released their second part in the trilogy about the Vikings. It was titled Miklagard and was the band's most successful album so far. In 2009 the band released the album Arise: From Ginnungagap to Ragnarök, the third and last part of the trilogy.

Ex-drummer Randy Black is now playing in Primal Fear. Ex-guitarist Björn Eilen is now playing in Silver Maiden and The Talkies.

In late 2010, three members of the band, Uwe Lulis, Gerd Lücking, and Simone Wenzel, departed, leaving the remaining two members with the band in their hands.[2]
