Seven years after 'Ballads III', German virtuoso Axel Rudi Pell releases 'Ballads IV' on 26th September.

The album, released through Steamhammer/SPV, is the fourth in his collection of classic rock ballads and contains three brand new recordings, 'Where The Wild Waters Flow', 'Holy Diver' and 'Hallelujah', as well as nine songs taken from previous albums, including Kiss' 'Love Gun' and Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'.

Axel's decision to cover 'Holy Diver' wasn't difficult, as the guitarist regarded Ronnie James Dio as his "soul mate and friend".

"Of course, the original track isn't a ballad," says Axel, "so we made a piano version of it, with some orchestration."

'Ballads IV' will be released as a standard CD jewel case, double gatefold LP in coloured vinyl and download.
