In 2007, he reached the next step in joining the legendary Rock band AXXIS.

Marco played all over Europe with AXXIS, including shows at high-profile Rockfestivals such as Wacken, Masters of Rock, Rock Of Ages or Loreley. Up to now,he has recorded three Albums with AXXIS - Doom Of Destiny, Utopia and Kingdom Of The Night Pt.2. (the laller two reaching positions 40 and 28 respectively in the German charts.) Marco Wriedt was featured in major German guitar magazines (Guitar and Gitarre & Bass) and was invited to play at the "Ronnie James DioTribute Show" in summer 2010, where he played alongside major artists such as Axel Rudi Pell, Doro and Doogie White, among others. He also formed his ownband ~21Octayne~ with Alex Landenburg, Hagen Grohe & Andrew Lauer at thispoint.
