this is exhaust - welcome to the rock!

Four becomes one - and that's Exhaust! We have been rocking since 1981 and have currently produced 3 albums. You can find our songs worldwide on about 50 web portals, of course on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer & Co and even in the new Tesla.

The CDs are available in our webshop. And if you're also interested in the thoughts behind the songs or just want to sing along to the fullest, you can click through our albums and browse through the details. Have fun and welcome to our little Exhaust universe!

flame of burning fire

Let the power kick in with our first song LAUNCHING OVERDRIVE: The name is program. In the tradition of its forerunners, the third CD album shows a new variation of the cover and plays, also in terms of the content of the songs, with fire!

Whether it comes out of the exhaust pipe (SOUND BARRIER, DAYTONA RED LINE), burns eternally for friendship (FLAME FOR ETERNITY) or solidifies as lava after a volcanic eruption (VOLCANO SIGH), the tension between lyrics and melodies makes every song an experience. Because there are many things hidden in the sound carpet, there is always something new to discover. The production was fun and that's what you can hear!

ride on frozen ground

INSURRECTION and FREEDOM CLIMBER show the direction for the album: straight melodic rock with hard guitars and great keyboard compositions.

The second concept album has snow and ice as its theme, which is why some of the lyrics are based on this theme - just like FROZEN ISLAND or VIKINGS NIGHT.

There is a lot to discover, the arrangements are full of melodies and creative ideas, but at the same time transparent and powerful. And if you think you know the songs, you should listen to them again under your headphones! Our recommendation: BREAKFAST AT 5 AM

secret of the sands

Our first album! After a few years of band history, we have redesigned our songs from the eighties in the modern sound of today. The sound unites the modern and the old times and with doing so, unmistakable melodies and sounds emerge. In the songs, you can feel the rocky connection to the earth - we're still reaching out for the guitar strings ourselves.

Tips on what to play: The hard rock number INTERCEPTOR 2.0 (version 1.0 was already a small hit as a single), BURNING LIGHT for rock with orchestral elements and the rock hit of the album THOUGHTS OF TODAY.
