MICHAEL SCHENKER'S TEMPLE OF ROCK - ON A MISSION LIVE IN MADRID

During their world tour of 2015/2016, the line-up set up their Temple of Rock in the Joy Eslava theatre in central Madrid. Michael Schenker and his crew chose this unique location with care for the recording of this concert. The historical 3-storey musical theatre creates an especially intimate atmosphere between the musicians and their audience, one that would be felt musically and visually.

On the evening of 19/11/2015, a sold-out Joy Eslava saw convincing evidence of just how powerful and exciting a concert from Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock can be. At the same time – and this was the special feature of this night – it became clear just how close the band and the audience were and how they drove each other on to even better performances. The musicians clapped along with the fans as they sung along to hits old and new with great enthusiasm.

All musical phases of Michael Schenker‘s career were included and the evening became a joyful party as well as a clear message of how positively Michael Schenker‘s music can enrich the listener‘s life. Just as the name of the venue in Madrid promises.

Spirit On A Mission is a rapturous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by some of the best musicians in rock. A well balanced album which combines many years of Michael Schenker's emotions in one.

MICHAEL SCHENKER - TEMPLE OF ROCK

Michael Schenker has returned with his group to add a new jewel to his creative work. And he has produced so many surprises that your senses will be overwhelmed! These surprises bring together Michael Schenker's past and present perfectly. The old times are reflected in many of the guitarist's contemporaries from the various epochs. Names such as Pete Way, Wayne Findlay, Neil Murray or Chris Slade still represent the highest of standards and get the aficionados' heartbeats racing. One of the biggest treats is his collaboration with the former Scorpions drummer, Herman “the German” Rarebell, as well as his beloved brother Rudolf, on several of the songs.

The fact that Michael not only plays the guitar on “Scene of Crime”, but also the flute as well, will raise quite a few eyebrows. Let's be honest: who would ever have thought that there would ever be another collaboration with Robin McAuley? “Lover's Sinfony” makes many a fan of their most successful period as the “McAuley and Schenker Group” feel that their dream has come true as well. And yet the list is even longer – Doogie White, Super drummer Carmine Appice or Elliott Tichy have also left their musical calling cards. The new voice on the microphone is Michael Voss. His voice is outstandingly suited to the punchy and compelling new tracks on “Temple of Rock”. Whether listening to the unadorned, melodious hard rock exemplified by “Saturday Night” or “How Long”, as well as bluesy sounds such as those on “With You”

The new album is largely distinguished by an immense enthusiasm for playing the guitar, its rich variety and the participation of international superstars. This album will finally induct MSG into the “Temple of Rock”!

info: www.in-akustik.com and www.michaelschenkerhimself.com

Tracklisting: Intro, How Long, Fallen Angel, Hanging On, The End Of An Era, Miss Claustrophobia, With You, Before The Devil Knows Your'e Dead, Storming In, Scene Of Crime, Saturday Night, Lover's Sinfony, Speed, How Long (3 Generations Guitar Battle Version)


SCHENKER BARDEN ACOUSTIC PROJECT - GIPSY LADY

The first album from Michael Schenker - Gary barden Acoustic Project is due to appear at the end of April All the experts say that you can tell a really great musican when he performs his music without the need of any technical props. Just at the point when playing by rote comes to an end and is surpassed by the emotion in each song. Michael has achieved all this with his congenial partners on 'Gipsy Lady' in a most impressive style. Long-term collaborator, Gary barden's vocals give the clevery arranged song just the tough of soul they need for full impact. He wrote the lyrics virtually off the top of his head. And with Michael Voss, Schenker has an experience producer, a second guitarist as well as a background vocalist on board, who delivers an outstanding performance as usual. Kai Luennemann on drums completes the team.

What is the specilal appeal of Gipsy Lady? First of all, you clearly have to emphasise the warm and emotional sound. With such a distinctive, soft sound from Michael Schenker's guitar, this album distinguishes itself far beyond other flat products. In addition to this is the fabulous selection of acoustic instruments which give all the songs the final kick. In this way, using a flamenco guitar with castanets in 'Dance Lady Gipsy' conjures up a hot-blooded gipsy dancing before your eyes, while the fiddle and flutes in 'Fight For Freedom' transport you to beautiful Ireland. The strings form just the right counterparts to Michael's guitar in the wonderful balled 'All Of My Life', while a mouth organ in 'Can't live On Love Alone' gives it a hint of the blues. All in all, the new album from Michael Schenker - Gary Barden Acoustic Project is more than an acoustic album, it demonstrates all Michael's expertise as a guitarist and is ideal for escaping the stress of everyday life by candlelight. Just listen and enjoy.

Tracklisting: Lost, Dance Lady Gipsy, All Of My Life, Fight For Freedom, El Grande, Starting Over, Can't Live On Love Alone, Another Melody, Travelled So Far, Hungry, Night Of The Stare, The Journey


IN THE MIDST OF BEAUTY

Michael Schenker returns to his very own musical roots with Gary Barden joining him as the first MSG singer in 'In The Midst Of Beauty'. Incidentally, Michael wrote all twelve songs together with him, but that is by no means everything. Other wellknown international musicians will accompany Michael on his long awaited comeback. None other than Don Airey from Deep Purple is on keyboards. Neil Murray from Whitesnake strums the bass strings and Simon Phillips from Toto works the drums. On an occasion like this we can quite rightly talk about an international, star-studded line up of world class format. This combines an extraordinary feel for melody with Michael's impressive guitar playing. Michael recovers his former strength with 'In The Midst Of Beauty'. The result is a fine mixture throughout the entire album. A healthy dose of hardrock and plenty of lyrics melodies distinguish his new cd, which his old fans love and wich will impress a wide range of new fans.

Tracklisting: City Lights, Competition, I Want You, End Of The Line, Summerdays, Night To Remember, Wings Of Emotion, Come Closer, Cross Of Crosses, Nana, The One, This Time


25 YEARS CELEBRATION - TALES OF ROCK 'N ROLL

Michael Schenker is celebrating his 25th anniversary in 2006 and fitting with this, a new album titled "Tales Of Rock’n’Roll" with 19 brand new songs is to be released.
All previous MSG singers have participated on the album; Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, Leif Sunding, Kelly Keeling, Chris Logan and also the current singer Jari. All original MSG vocalists have delivered fantastic performances, Schenker enthuses. Sometimes we got the feeling that time stood still, that's how good the vocal parts have come out. The most important new discovery in the MSG camp is of course Jari Tiura from Finland, who contributed the vocal parts to 13 of the 19 tracks. Coincidentally, the Michael Schenker Group not only features brilliant vocalists on Tales Of Rockn`Roll - 25 Years Celebration: UFO member Pete Way, among others, turned up at the studio to record bass parts, while none other than Jeff Martin manned the drum kit.
