On 30. July 2007, Mirror's 2nd single "Heart Of Ice" was released on CD and vinyl.

It had become an instant fan favourite, even prior its official release.
It has been played at almost every Mirror & Solowshow* gig ever since,
mostly featuring Leif Astroid (Solowshow*, The Pleasures) on vocal,
as opposed to the studio version, featuring Mike's vocal.

One of the single's B-sides was the original ballad version of "Nuclear Sky"
featuring Leif Astroid and Bat (ex-Radkick) on guest vocals.
It was Mike's & Leif's first studio work together, 
5 years before Solowshow*'s own debut album "Visuacoustic" appeared in 2012.

"Heart Of Ice" later was released on Mirror's "Shocking Debut" album in 2007,
a rock version of "Nuclear Sky" with Mike's vocal was recorded for Mirror's "Valentine's Album" in 2012.

Today, Solowshow* celebrate 10 years "Heart Of Ice" single with a live show in SternChance Hamburg,

"I have written an article for the German site "Underground Empire" about the legendary Russian rock band Gorky Park. You can find it here: Enjoy!  ~ Mike Breeze"


December 31, 2011

"Happy new dragon's year to all of Mirror & Solowshow* fans!
Let's rock in 2012 together!
I am sending these congratulations to all of you, but people from Kharkov/Ukraine asked me for a special message and I created a little video for them: . Check it out! See ya! M.B."


August 1, 2011

"My article about Queen (dedicated to their 40th anniversary) was published in ROCKCOR in the August issue. And my article about X Japan will be published in the September issue.

Sadly, on 17. July 2011, Taiji Sawada  (1966-2011) died, aged just 45. I love all X Japan members, but he was one of my special heroes. Not only because he also played bass. I loved his tasteful bass & guitar playing, his songwriting, his image and his wonderful paintings. I hope there will be a Taiji exhibition sometime soon! Taiji ever free, heroes never die! R.I.H.! (Rock In Heaven!) 

Stay tuned for Mirror and Solowshow* news sometime soon... and stay alive!  - CU - Mike"


May 2, 2011

"I am still alive!
There have not been many news from the MIRROR camp since my gig with RA:IN (feat. Pata of X JAPAN in Berlin in 2009.
Our second album is unfortunately not ready yet, due to technical reasons. But I was not lazy, and besides the MIRROR work, also took part in a number of other projects:
I was asked by the oldest Russian rock magazine Rockcor to write a comprehensive obituary in memory of MANOWAR's charming drummer Scott Columbus, who died on 4. April 2011 aged just 54. You will be able to purchase the journal on their site .
However, there are also some good news!
I've been writing songs with the bands EUROZIMA, SATARIAL and my old stage partner Leif "Dancette" Astroid .
There is a GORKY PARK music archivation process that I am taking part in and I translated some American and German GORKY PARK press into Russian, while Leif helped out with the Danish press.
And the wonderful jewellery company PINKABSINTHE created a beautiful chain called "Butterflies In The Rain", titled so after one of my newer songs. Some fans might remember this because I have been playing it live since 2008. This ballad will probably be released on MIRROR's third album, since there seems to be no space left on the second one. I recommend all of You to look at this chain and buy it on PINKABSINTHE's site: .
Cheers and... see ya! - Mike Breeze"


"Ich lebe noch!
Es gab nicht viele News aus dem MIRROR-Lager seit meinem Konzert mit RA:IN (feat. Pata von X JAPAN in Berlin in 2009.
Leider ist unser zweites Album aus technischen Grunden noch nicht fertig. Aber ich habe die Zeit genutzt um nebenbei auch an anderen Projekten zu arbeiten:
Ich wurde gebeten einen ausfuhrlichen Nachruf auf MANOWAR's charmanten Drummer Scott Columbus zu schreiben, der am 4. April 2011 im Alter von nur 54 gestorben ist. Der Artikel wird in Rockcor - der alstesten russischen Rockzeitschrift - veroffentlicht.
Aber es gibt auch gute Nachrichten!
Ich habe Songs geschrieben, u.a. mit EUROZIMA, SATARIAL und meinem langjahrigen Buhnenpartner Leif "Dancette" Astroid .
Au?erdem nehme ich teil am Musikarchivierungsprozess von GORKY PARK und habe amerikanische und deutsche GORKY PARK-Presse ins Russische ubersetzt, wahrend Leif mit den Ubersetzungen aus der danischen Presse geholfen hat.
Und die wundervolle Juweliersfirma PINKABSINTHE hat eine schone Kette kreiert, die auf den Namen "Butterflies In The Rain" getauft wurde, inspiriert von meinem gleichnamigen Song, den ich seit 2008 bei vielen Konzerten live gespielt habe, insofern durfte der Titel einigen Fans vertraut sein. Die Ballade wird wahrscheinlich auf dem dritten MIRROR-Album veroffentlicht, weil auf dem Zweiten kein Platz mehr zu sein scheint. Ich empfehle Euch allen sich die Kette anzuschauen und zu kaufen auf PINKABSINTHE's Seite: .
Passt auf Euch auf und... wir sehen uns! - Mike Breeze"

August 28, 2007

official statement from Mike Breeze:


We celebrated our SHOCKING DEBUT release party on Friday, 24th August 2007 and it totally fucking ruled!

Kukuun in Hamburg proved to be a nice location,
the fans in the first row went crazy (especially on Come To Me Baby),
Ramin, Ian and our special guest Leif delivered one of their finest performances ever to date,
we had one Hell of an aftershow party
and I ended the night in a close circle
at the Elbe in Hamburg in the port area
watching the dawn and the giant ships pass by...

What a night!

Rock'n'roll is worth it and if You fight for Your prize,
You definitely get it!

Thanx to everyone who visited us at that evening!
And to everyone on stage and in Kukuun.

Special thanx to our driver Carkus Schröter
who ended up driving one of the fartherst living fans of that night home to his hometown to the North of Germany -
after delivering all the equipment back in my place. Thank You!

The next day (Saturday) I had no time to relax or to write this message
because I was spontaneously booked for Kiel-tv
to introduce our CD and DVD there, to talk about the release party and to play 1 song live backed up by my own electroacoustic Takamine guitar.
I ended up playing 3:
Night On Broadway, Don Quijote, Come To Me Baby.

While Mirror are busy working on the next record
(as well as myself recording some solo tunes...),
I found time to take care of something else, namely
in October, I am organizing a live gig in Kiel
for 2 very cool bands:

Flash (punk / glam / metal, St Petersburg)

December 14, 2004
Mirrors live gig in Kulturforum on 10th December was recorded on video by 3 cameras for possible inclusion of some songs onto the upcoming "Shocking Videbut" DVD in 2005.

However, the concert kicked off with a spontaneus short rendition of Panteras "Walk" as a tribute to Dimebag Darrel (guitarist of Pantera and Damageplan) who was tragically killed by a shooter at a Damageplan on 8th December in Ohio.

Official statement from Mike Breeze:

"I did not want to write anything on this topic, because almost every rock musician in the world commented on it already, much better than I can, but then I realised that it is my duty not to remain silent on this tragedy. Dimebag was a cheerful positive guy and one of the most influential guitarists in the world. His death hit me really hard as if I was a member of his family. In fact, I was, in some way, as a Pantera and Damageplan fan. Ramin was also shocked and upset by this awful event. Our love goes to Dimebag as well as Vinnie and the rest of Dimes family and friends. Dime, we will never forget You!
Keep on rocking with Freddie, hide, Bonham, Lennon and the rest of the heavens crew!
Dimebag - rest in peace!
