Be Aware Of The Scorpions


If you have been listening to metal for any amount of time you will most certainly come across the name Schenker. Whether it is Rudolph Schenker from the Scorpions or his brother Michael Schenker from the band UFO as well as stints in the Scorpions. This reputation is well earned as both these bands have earned a place in the history of metal as well as Michael's reputation as a guitar virtuoso.

The style of the music has never really changed in the 25+ years of writing and recording. It is still basic melodic metal with the flying guitar style that Michael has become famous for. This album is no exception to the rule as it is filled with 13 tracks of "Girlfriend Friendly" metal. A bit light for my tastes but there are times you just need to listen to something a little on the lighter side. No matter how hard I try I can't bring myself to listen to Slayer 24/7…:)and this is where an album like this really fits in, for me anyway. Although this is lighter than what I normally listen to I can definitely appreciate the quality of the music here. This album is filled with what you would expect…catchy songs with far better than average guitar work. The vocals are excellent as well and bring that extra punch to the music. In all actuality this is an excellent album I am just not sure how much playing time it will receive with me.

Overall I would say if you are looking for something that is a little lighter or you have a woman coming over that is not into Angelcorpse or Anal Cunt this will be something both of you can listen to without to much of an argument…:)
