The immortal Michael Schenker

Michael Schenker will release a new album under the MSG moniker in January 2021 via Nuclear Blast records. It will be called Immortal and feature several members of the extended Purple family.

Ronnie Romero will be the principal vocalist on the album, along with Joe Lynn Turner, Michael Voss (Mad Max), and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) singing on two tracks each. Other notable guests include Simon Philipps and Brian Tichy on drums, Derek Sherinian on keyboards, and Doogie White on additional vocals.

Immortal will feature ten tracks, including the magnum opus “In Search Of The Peace Of Mind”. “I wrote this song when I was 15 years old, it was my first ever written piece of music which I recorded with Scorpions on our first studio album Lonesome Crow in 1970, getting released in 1972 – when I had already left Scorpions to join the British rock band UFO in June of 1972 – when I was 17. We re-recorded this song for my 50th anniversary as a celebration and it turned out to be an epic; with an extra extension at the end of the song, which turned out absolutely fantastic with Simon Phillips on drums, doing his usual amazing stuff.”

The result is a true highlight and features even more surprises: “Gary Barden sings the first verse, continued by Ronnie Romero – and in the end we have Ronnie, Doogie White, and Robin McAuley screaming their heads off, as a tribute to my 50th anniversary. Absolute amazing. Thanks to the guys for doing this!”

    His last few studio albums have been decidedly underwhelming. Not sure I should even hope that this one will be better. 🙁

    He keeps making mediocre albums one after another.A cliched rock n roll.I’m tired of this format and having different singers singing some half assed songs

    I enjoyed the Michael Schenker Fest with a whole bunch of singers in De Melkweg, Amsterdam and had a great evening especially because one of them was Graham Bonnet. I was made curieus about the new album because of mr Romero, who I thought was the new vocalist of Vandenberg. To quote Adrian V: If he’s good enough for Blackmore he’s good enough for “anyone”👍😁
