AXE VICTIMS - Another Victim (First Pressing) 12" Vinyl LP Album

This is the original 1st pressing of the only album released by the "Axe Victims" band

  The "AXE VICTIMS" is from Wuppertal, Germany and has been active from 1982 until 1986. "Another Victim" is the only official album recorded by this band and released in 1984. The production was in hands of the "Mausoleum Records" management team: Jos Kloek, Alfie Falckenbach and Stonne Holmgren.



"Another Victim" is the debut album of the British hard rock band Axe Victims, released in 1983 as a 12" vinyl LP. The album features ten tracks of heavy, guitar-driven rock, including "Heartbreaker", "Can't Stand It", and "Turn It Loud". The album's first pressing includes the track "For The Ladies" which was later removed. The LP is highly sought after by collectors for its rarity and its excellent musicianship. Fans of hard rock will enjoy the dynamic energy of Axe Victims' debut album.

The reason why the track "For The Ladies" was removed from the subsequent pressings of Axe Victims' debut album "Another Victim" is unclear. It's possible that the band or the record label made the decision to remove it due to its explicit lyrics or controversial subject matter. Alternatively, it could have been removed simply for timing reasons or to fit the album's overall length. Whatever the reason, the first pressing of the album with "For The Ladies" remains a rare and sought-after collector's item.

Alfie Falckenbach was a visionary figure in the European Heavy Metal scene, known for his contributions as the founder of the Belgian record company, Mausoleum Records. Born on 7 April 1950, in Belgium, Falckenbach displayed an early passion for music and a keen entrepreneurial spirit that would lead him to shape the landscape of heavy metal in the 1980s.

Falckenbach's journey into the world of music began when he discovered his love for rock and roll during his teenage years. Inspired by the energetic and rebellious nature of the genre, he immersed himself in the music and developed a deep appreciation for heavy metal. Recognizing the potential of this genre, Falckenbach became determined to provide a platform for emerging European bands and offer them the exposure they deserved.

In 1982, Falckenbach established Mausoleum Records, a record company dedicated to promoting and supporting heavy metal music. Through his label, he aimed to give voice to talented European bands, particularly those from his home country of Belgium. Falckenbach's commitment to fostering talent and promoting the heavy metal scene resulted in the creation of numerous influential bands.


Working closely with talented collaborators like Leo Felsenstein and Stonne Holmgren, Falckenbach nurtured the growth of Mausoleum Records. He played a pivotal role in producing and promoting the music of various European heavy metal bands, giving them a platform to showcase their talent to a wider audience. His collaborations with Felsenstein and Holmgren brought a unique blend of expertise, creativity, and business acumen to the table, contributing to the success of the record label and the bands associated with it.

Under Falckenbach's guidance, Mausoleum Records became synonymous with quality heavy metal releases, launching the careers of many iconic bands. The record label introduced the world to Belgian metal acts like Acid, Ostrogoth, Killer, and Crossfire, among others, who would go on to make their mark in the metal scene. These bands not only gained recognition within Europe but also garnered international acclaim, thanks to the efforts of Falckenbach and his team.

Falckenbach's commitment to the heavy metal movement extended beyond Mausoleum Records. He played an active role in organizing concerts and festivals, providing a platform for metal bands to connect with their fans and expand their reach. His dedication to the genre and his understanding of its nuances made him a respected figure within the heavy metal community.

Alfie Falckenbach's influence on the European heavy metal scene cannot be overstated. His founding of Mausoleum Records, his collaborations with Leo Felsenstein and Stonne Holmgren, and his unwavering support for emerging bands shaped the landscape of heavy metal music in the 1980s. Today, his contributions continue to resonate, and his legacy lives on in the enduring music of the bands he helped to establish.

Although Alfie Falckenbach is no longer with us, his impact on the heavy metal genre remains as a testament to his dedication and passion for music. His visionary approach and unwavering commitment to supporting talented artists have left an indelible mark on the history of European heavy metal.
