Classic Rock Magazine about the music video „Lightworker“
„This lot from Osterhofen in Bavaria, Germany, are making us think of a beerier, bluesier Motörhead – complete with a pleasingly mad-sounding hint of countrified rock’n’roll swing in the rhythm.
The kind of band we imagine stumbling upon at a sweaty bar gig that looks like it might escalate into a massive brawl, but actually turns out to be rather brilliant.“

5 Aces - No Limit Rock&Roll
Die Band meint es mit ‚No Limit Rock&Roll‘ durchaus ernst: Grenzen werden überschritten.
Heraus kommt dabei eine eklektische und widerspenstige Form von Rock, gemischt mit wütendem Punk. ‘5 Aces’ wollen und können nicht in eine Schublade gesteckt werden und Rock&Roll steht hier in erster Linie für Konterkultur.
Die Rockmusik hat sich im (...) Show more 21. Jahrhundert weiter entwickelt: nahezu alle Stilistiken und Richtungen sind zu hören, jedoch bleibt die klare Linie zwischen Blues und Punk konsequent durchgezogen. Nur eine Kontroverse von vielen, die 5 Aces nicht scheuen.
So findet sich die Band ständig irgendwo zwischen gut und böse; zwischen Himmel und Hölle. Ein Fegefeuer.
Seit 2009 hält Frontmann Hans-Jürgen Vogl hier das Gleichgewicht und steuert sein Schiff geradewegs an den Rand der Welt.
2015 erwies der legendäre Produzent Reinhold Mack der Band die Ehre und erklärte sich bereit, die Debüt-EP “Greetings From The Underground“ abzumischen. Laut einem Interview der lokalen Zeitung gleicht dies einem musikalischen Ritterschlag.
5 Aces’ bestrafender Stil ist unverkennbar: laut und gemein, hart aber fair. In einer Welt voller Lügen und Manipulation kontert die Band ständig und ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste.
The band is actually serious about the term „No Limit Rock&Roll“: Mental and even physical boundaries are being pushed.
This makes an eclectic and defiant style of Rock, mixed with angry punk. ‚5 ACES“ don’t want to be and cannot be analysed while the term Rock&Roll is not being used as it is in music history but as a general term of counterculture which has renewed itself again and again over the course of time.
As we have arrived in the 21st century we have seen many waves of counterculture in different forms and we can now get influences from these. Through this philosophy we must be a progressive band as well. All kinds of musical styles can be heard, all based on a foundation of Blues mixed with Punk and Rock. Fusion Rock or Eclectic Rock you could call it. As one can see the band is not afraid to be controversial.
As a matter of fact 5 ACES is kind of stuck in a struggle between good and bad, heaven and hell. A purgatory.
Since 2009 singer guitarist Hanzo El Diablo keeps his ship in orbit, going straight to the end of the galaxy what or wherever that may be.
In 2015 legendary producer Reinhold Mack agreed to a collaboration on the new EP „Greetings From The Underground“. According to an interview by the local newspaper this is a pinnacle in the history of a young rockband.
5 Aces’ punishing style is distinctive: loud and mean, hard but fair. In a world full of lies and manipulation the band keeps counterattacking, lives with no regrets and takes no prisoners. Show less
