The band played countless world tours, delivered spectacular shows with colleagues such as Iron Maiden, Slayer, or Ozzy Osbourne, released 15 studio- and 3 live albums, and sold more than 8 million records. With 14 gold and 6 platinum awards under their belt, they scored their career’s highest German album entry in 2013 and scored at the US Billboard’s Top 100.
