Fantastic race weekend with two spots on podium

"A fantastic race weekend with two races and two spots on podium! I am really proud, being the fastest at the final run on Sunday, reaching the 2. position at supercar class at the German Rallycross Mastership. The first position was going to Denmark with a car out of the world championship, which was driving out of competition."

ALMANAC - release previously unreleased version of "Kingdom Of The Blind"

Victor Smolski's ALMANAC present a previously unreleased version of 'Kingdom Of The Blind', which originally was part of 2017's "Kingslayer" album featuring vocalist Frank Beck (GAMMA RAY) as well as new arrangements.
Victor Smolski comments:
"On our European Tour 2020, Frank Beck became the main singer of ALMANAC. 'Kingdom Of The Blind' was his favourite song from ALMANAC. So, we decided to do a new version of this song with great support from Belarus Symphony Orchestra, which brings the song to a new level."

A lyric video for the track can be viewed here:

The track is available as digital single on all platforms now. Furthermore, a demo version of the song is part of's "Metal Alliance vol. 4" compilation that's available on CD at:

Victory at final run at german Rallycross Mastership 2019!

Unbelieveable victory at the final run for the German Rallycross Mastership 2019! The weather god has listened to my request, sending some rain convenient for the final race. As the power of the engine is not that important at a slippy surface, it actually was a dance on a razor blade. So I was totally happy, reaching the checkered flag first, having some little scratch at the car and a big advantage. That was a fantastic finish of a super successful mastership! A large part of my success belongs to my fantastic team Günter Beckers and Uwe Godau, who optimised my car from run to run. Thanks to all of you, who gave me support at the race track or at the internet!

Hi everybody, next weekend, we are battling for victory in Buxtehude again. Thanks to all fans at the race course and to my sponsors. I really feeled honord, that I was admitted into the world of Recaro together with legends as Walter Röhrl, Armin Schwarz, Timo Bernhard ...

Finally on the race track again! It's realy good to step on the gas, blowing free the head, and flying through the rallye tests. Reaching the 3. place in total, the first race appearance this year was real successful. Thanks to Armin Schwarz for organization of Rallye Sprint Cups, to Günter Beckers for the perfect prepared car, as well as Thomas Gorlt for the great photos. As it is real difficult, planing dates during this damned Lockdown, I not only start at the German Rallycross Mastership, but also at Rallyes and mountain-races. I hope, that anytime spectators can be at the race track again! We see us!
