The Scorpions have released an Electronic Press Kit for their new CD Humanity Hour 1. You can watch the video at this link.
If you haven’t picked this disc up, you are missing out one of the better releases of 2007.
You can read the Hard Rock Hideout review here.
The new video clip for the song Humanity is posted below:
In case you haven’t heard, earlier this week Atlanta Falcon star quarterback, Michael Vick was indicted on dog fighting charges earlier this week. You can read that story here.
This morning in email, a friend of mine sent the following picture:
This Michael Wagener produced disc features Ron Keel on vocals, Marc Ferrari and Brian Jay on guitar, Kenny Chaisson on bass, and Dwain Miller on drums.
This is a another disc that I have owned on multiple formats. I wore my cassette tape of this out years ago, and was quick to pick it up on CD once that happened.
This disc has a bunch of excellent hard rock tunes and a solid power ballad, Calm Before the Storm. My favorite songs are Somebody’s Waiting, Cherry Lane, King of the Rock and I Said the Wrong Thing to the Right Girl.
If I had to compare Keel to other bands from the same time period, I would say that they are closest to Dokken. Ron Keel belts the vocals out with his melodic screams, and Marc Ferrari has many impressive guitar solos throughout this release.
It should be a crime, that a CD this good is out of print. The only way you are going to find this one now is through EBay, Gemm, or some expensive used copies through Amazon.com.
You can preview a couple of the songs below. Don’t miss out on this disc, if you don’t own it.
