"If you're a fan of Dio, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and love the 70's and 80's classic hard rock sound, check this album out.
Female fronted bands are now represented in most genres of metal and hard rock these days but on this album, Jutta Weinhold virtually puts on a clinic as to how a female voice should sing Dio, Rainbow, Sabbath style hard rock. It takes a while to grow on you but what a wonderful surprise, one of the best classic hard rock sounding albums I've heard yet this year!

Jutta Weinhold è nata a Mainz (Germania). I suoi primi passi musicali risalgono gia' al 1969, quando fu impegnata nel ruolo di "Sheila" nel musical "Hair", seguirono quindi apparizioni nei musical "Godspell" e "Jesus Christ Superstar" nel 1972. Jutta fece parte anche del Amon Düül II tour del 1974 in Francia ed incontrò suo marito Ralf Basten.
Nel 1976 pubblica il suo primo album solista "Coming", seguito da "Jutta Weinhold" nel 1978; in questi anni è anche guest di Udo Lindenberg. La sua band Zed Yago, fondata nel 1985, diventa piuttosto popolare in Europa ed è considerata pioniera del "dramatic" metal. I concept albums "From Over Yonder" (1988) e "Pilgrimage" (1989) raccontano delle esperienze di una fittizia figlia dell'Olandese Volante, scritte dalla sua fervente fantasia ed immaginazione; da menzionare che con l'album "Pilgrimage" la band supporta i W.A.S.P. nel tour in Inghilterra. Purtroppo il meritato successo porta a conflitti interni alla band ed una pesante disputa legale la costringe a non utilizzare più il monicker di Zed Yago, così nel 1990 battezza il suo nuovo progetto musicale Velvet Viper, che va considerato l'unico possibile seguito degli Zed Yago; il resto della band infatti non poteva continuare senza di lei e si sciolse subito dopo. "Velvet Viper" (con l'ex Warlock Peter Szigeti alla chitarra) pubblicato nel 1990 e "Fourth Quest For Fantasy" (con l'ex batterista degli Z.Y. Bubi) nel 1992, sono entrambi grandi album di classico epic metal ma non incontrano buone vendite, cosi' la band è messa in ghiaccio. Nel 1994 pubblica il suo terzo album solista "To Be Or Not" con un suono più heavy rispetto ai precedenti lavori solisti e con i Velvet Viper in sospeso la sua inarrestabile creatività confluisce negli album di Weinhold "From Heaven through the World to Hell" (2004) e "Below the Line" (2006).
Nel 2017 Jutta collabora con il chitarrista Holger Marx e inizia a lavorare al ritorno dei Velvet Viper con l'album "Respice Finem" (2018); prodotto da Kai Hansen (che appare anche nell'album come ospite), è accolto molto bene dalla critica e dalla scena metal, tanto che nel 2019 la band suona all'Headbanger's Open Air e al Wacken riscuotendo reazioni molto positive. Inizia cosi una nuova era per la band: "The Pale Man Is Holding A Broken Heart" (2019), "Cosmic Healer" (2021), "Nothing Compares to Metal" (2023) mostrano ancora una volta l'infinita mente creativa di Jutta come scrittrice e cantante.
"From Heaven through the World to Hell" è ora disponibile per la prima volta in formato vinile. Ancora una volta i testi trattano tematiche fantasy, miti e fonti letterarie che si adattano perfettamente all' epico heavy metal del disco, arricchito dalla potente e drammatica voce di Jutta, creando cosi un suono ed un'atmosfera unici.
Jutta Weinhold was born in Mainz (Germany). Her first musical steps are in 1969, when she was engaged in the role of "Sheila" in the musical "Hair", followed by appareances in the musicals "Godspell" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" in 1972. Jutta was also part of Amon Düül II's 1974 tour in France, when she met her husband Ralf Basten. 
In 1976 she released "Coming" first solo-album, followed by "Jutta Weinhold" in 1978; in these years she was also guest musician with Udo Lindenberg.
Her band Zed Yago, founded in 1985, became pretty popular in Europe and to be considered a pioneer of "dramatic" metal. The band's concept albums "From Over Yonder" (1988) and "Pilgrimage" (1989) deal with the experiences of a fictitious daughter of the Flying Dutchman, written by her fantasy and vivid imagination; to mention for "Pilgrimage" the band supported W.A.S.P. on Uk tour.
Unfortunately the deserved success brought internal conflicts inside the band and a heavy legal dispute forced her to not use the Zed Yago monicker anymore, so in 1990 she baptized her new musical project Velvet Viper, to be considered the only possible Zed Yago following; the rest of the band infact could not continue without her and they disbanded soon after. "Velvet Viper" (with former Warlock Peter Szigeti on guitar) was released in 1990 and "Fourth Quest For Fantasy" (with former Z.Y. drummer Bubi) in 1992, are both great epic-classic HM albums but did not meet good sales, so then the band was put on ice.
In 1994 she released her third solo album "To Be Or Not" with heavier sound in comparison with her previous solo-ones and with Velvet Viper on hold her unstoppable creativity flowed in Weinhold albums "From Heaven through the World to Hell" (2004) and "Below the Line" (2006).
In 2017 Jutta teamed up with guitarist Holger Marx and started working on the Velvet Viper comeback with the album "Respice Finem" (2018); produced by Kai Hansen (he appears also on album as guest), was very well received in many magazines and in the metal scene, so in 2019 the band played at the Headbanger's Open Air and at Wacken earning very positive reactions. A new band era was started: "The Pale Man Is Holding A Broken Heart" (2019), "Cosmic Healer" (2021), "Nothing Compares to Metal" (2023) show once again Jutta's never-ending creative mind as writer and vocalist. "From Heaven through the World to Hell" is now available for the very first time on vinyl. Once again
 the lyrics relate to fantasy, myths and literary sources, fitting perfectly to the epic heavy metal of the album, enriched by Jutta's powerful and dramatic vocals, creating an unique sound and atmosphere.
