RPWL is a German progressive rock band. The band was formed in 1997 as a Pink Floyd cover band. The name was taken from the first letters of the original 4 members; Chris Postl, Phil Paul Rissettio, Yogi Lang, and Karlheinz Wallner. After three years they started to make their own music based on their influences from their cover band era. Their debut CD, "God Has Failed" was met with international enthusiasm, praise and excellent reviews in all the major progressive rock music magazines.
2002 brought "Trying To Kiss The Sun" which saw the band developing more their own sound and not relying so heavily on their influences. Their 3rd studio album, "Stock" was released in 2003. It was formed of the tracks that didn't make it onto the first 2 albums, plus a cover of Syd Barrett's Opel, which the band used at shows as a soundcheck.
In 2005 they released their 4th studio album "World Through My Eyes". This was received well by fans and off it their first single was taken- "Roses". This tune also featured the ex Genesis and Stiltskin lead singer Ray Wilson on lead vocals. There is no record as to the chart position of the single. The special edition of the album was also mixed by Lang in 5.1 and was released as an SACD hybrid disc.
