Conrad Schrenk joined Stahlhammer as guitarist for the album Feind Hört Mit. He has also been a guitarist or guest musician for many other bands and classical arrangements including Go 4 It, The Romanes (not The Ramones), and more recently for Blind Petition, Gary's old band.

  Georgij Alexandrowitsch Makazaria  
Instrument: Vocals
Albums: Wiener Blut, Feind Hört Mit

Georgij Makazaria took over for Gary during his time away from the band. His vocals and background as a pop/hip-hop style singer gave Wiener Blut and Feind Hört Mit a different feel than Gary. During this time, Stahlhammer produced some unusual songs like the cover of MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This". Georgij left the band after Feind Hört Mit and Gary Wheeler has again taken the position as frontman. He can now be found in the band Ohrrausch.
