Happy Metal Thunder ist das angekündigte internationale Album, eine Best-Of-Zusammenstellung mit neuen Texten in englischer Sprache. Ebenfalls in englischer Sprache ist daher natürlich der Infotext zum Album:
The press calls them affectionately fun-metalband, pearls of humour, professional comedians, silly rockers, crazy quartet, cult band or either metal-smile monster. But what really stands behind J.B.O.? Definition impossible! But one thing is clear: these one and only true defenders of „Blöedsinn“ make a co-existence possible of humour and heavy-metal. The one who has fun, has the power!
In 1989, the matchless-pink story of success of these four hedonists began at the newcomer festival in Erlangen. It was founded as a short-term fun project at the beer bar. But instead of this Vito, Hannes, Holmer and Schmitti received a record contract. All their following, pioneering CD’s were catapulted to the top chart regions and their fulminant live-concerts became triumphal tours. The personnel replacement in 2000 – Holmer and Schmitti were substituted by Wolfram and Ralph – had not damaged their success. Even foreign countries are not safe any more from J.B.O. Bid open air festivals in whole Europe, gigs in Austria, Switzerland, Luxemburg, Belgium, Holland and Slovenia as well as fanpost from France, India, Japan or Thailand tell their own tale. Rock’n’Roll is their religion!
No matter if live or on CD: party, fun and nonsense of superlative are always guaranteed!
