About Bill Menchen
Bill Menchen has a career that stems over several decades with a lifetime of achievements.
From Christian Rock to modern day Techno Music.
I played in a rock group that I started since getting out of high school until 1985. But I felt like I had to get more serious about playing music as a Christian. I found 3 other guys to get a group going in southern California. We called the group "Redeemer". I played guitar and sang lead. I was a terrible singer, but rock singers were hard to come by and I wasn't going to sit around and rot. It was the beginning of a long road of achievements, learning how to write and record my own style, and a long road of hard lessons. We independently recorded about two albums worth of material with Redeemer. Redeemer played in almost every kind of church, public parks, bars, and night clubs.
...Redeemer, Final Axe & Rev Seven
After Redeemer, I started another group in 1989 called "Final Axe". I just played the guitar in this group, and wrote the music, so it was a different perspective. We recorded about 2 albums of material independently. By now I was starting to see the value of not only having skilled players and dependable people in a group, but well grounded musicians as well.
