Michael Ehré was born August, 1st, 1971. His musical career began at the age of 10 years and led him through various local bands before he joined Pryer in the summer of 1991, which brought him the first nationwide attention.
After countless concerts and an album (Kick'n'Rush) he formed in 1997 together with the Pryer-singer Frank Schütte Murder One, until he joined the Hamburg-based Metalband Metalium in late 2001. With them he  produced eight albums, and a DVD. From 2005 until 2012 he was a member of the band of former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth, with whom he first toured beyond the borders of  Europe and traveled to countries like Japan, USA and New Zealand. On Uli's latest album "Under A Dark Sky" you can hear that Michael is much more than a pure metal drummer.
From 2009 to 2011 he played with the greek metalband Firewind, the band of the current Ozzy Osbourne-guitarist Gus G. 2010 Michael founded his "own" band Love.Might.Kill and recorded two albums. Since 2012 he is a member of the Hamburg-Metal-Institution Gamma Ray. Their latest album "Empire Of The Undead" claimed the charts in several European countries.

Since his youth, he also plays guitar/bass and composes music and lyrics. This is not just limited to bands in which he is a permanent member - also for other artists (Saeko/Weinhold) Michael Ehré has written songs.
