Michael Schenker’s Tem­ple Of Rock

Bridge The Gap

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -


Back with a brand new stu­dio al­bum Schenker’s rockin’Tem­ple in­cludes ex-Scor­pi­ons Fran­cis Buch­holz and Her­man Rare­bell on bass and drums, and this is the first al­bum the three have shared since Lovedrive in 1979. Add Doo­gie White on vo­cals and Wayne Find­lay on keys and 7-string gui­tar and you’re in for a treat. The idea for this al­bum was formed while tour­ing in 2012, and in Jan­uary this year Schenker sent White seven songs to add lyrics and melodies. “There was a lot of en­ergy fly­ing about dur­ing the record­ing,” says Michael; “It felt like bridg­ing the gap from my Lovedrive years to what I’m do­ing now.” It’s a great se­lec­tion of songs; we par­tic­u­larly like Lord Of The Lost And Lonely, just one of the tracks where Doo­gie’s Rain­bow in­flu­ence sneaks in. This is clas­sic 80s rock: fast, fu­ri­ous and packed with great riffs and so­los; a tri­umph for all con­cerned and a most wel­come re­lease.
