Darxon heartbreaker

Darxon is a heavy metal band created in 1983, in Dortmund, Germany. Their debut album, Killed in Action, was recorded as a quartet of vocalist Massimo DeMatteis, guitarist Markus Szart, bassist Peter Schmidt, and drummer Dominik Hulshorst, produced by Ferdinand Kother at the Tonstudio Cooperative GmbH in Bochum. A four track EP, Tokyo, was released in 1985, with a 7" vinyl single, Holding On, following in 1986.


Their 1987 No Thrills album, on new label Rockport Records, featured Darxon's new line-up, including: guitarists Wolfgang Böhm and Michael Habestadt, bassist Thomas Smeczynski, and drummer Ingo Pluss. Darxon supported Zed Yago in Germany in 1988. That year the band changed again, keeping Böhm with singer Klaus Lemm, and introducing: guitarist Jens Frank, Jochen Fünders and Herbert Dreger. This line-up disbanded in 1989.

Darxon re-assembled once again for a third album, from Belgian label Mausoleum Records. Massimo DeMatteis was joined by guitarists Frank Dielewski and Thomas Thanscheidt, bassist Ingo "Pink" Geiger, and Steeler drummer Jan Yildiral. The band then went into hiatus.

Darxon was recreated for live work by Jens Frank in 2006, and renamed Noxrad. The band now included former bassist Jochen Fünders, singer Conny Beck (of Belda Beast, Fyre, Riccochet, and Second Sight), with Thilo Voiss (from Aardvarks and Riccochet) on drums.
