“Revelation” is the evolution of the debut album of a project which combines all the previous lineups of Michael Schenker’s solo career
With the word legend thrown around so freely these days it starts to become almost redundant to use it but sometimes it’s actually justified. Michael Schenker truly is a legendary guitarist and this gig has further proved it to me. This was as close to the perfect gig as I’ve been to in a very long time and will be one I speak about for years to come. I’m not ashamed to admit that I will be worshipping at the Temple Of Rock for a long time and spreading the word with all the evangelical fervour I can manage. I’m off to start a countdown clock to 23rd March next year when the new album (“Spirit On A Mission”) comes out.
Bottom line here is the performance by Shenker and all the pro players he decided to bring on board this tour, not only invigorating the axeman but inspiring new wave of fans old and new. A great comeback record topped even better by a great live tour and now a nice package all put together by the folks over at Inakustik, a must have for Schenker holics!!!
the band have created something here that still pays plenty of tribute to their sound of old, but also steers a little closer to a traditional melodic metal sound, something that much better suits White’s vocal style…
Doogie: Great leaders and doctors and heroes leave legacies. Rock n Rollers leave broken hearts. Ronnie Dio left a legacy but he was a great man with compassion and a thoughtful mind and touched many with his music. I don’t expect to leave even 1oz of what was left behind when Ronnie died.
Being dormant is not a thing that White has seen much of during the last decade as he has always manage to stay busy in a multitude of projects, but never a solo album…..until now. The sound here can best be described as your trademark White vocals style
this should easily be the next album you buy, it really is nothing like anything else being released at the moment and the band actually sound more like DEEP PURPLE than DEEP PURPLE themselves have sounded for the last decade or so and now that the album has fully sunken into my brain I am willing to call it a modern day classic…
