NEW ALBUM: SCORPIONS | ROCK BELIEVER (LIMITED EDITION DELUXE)
Legendary German rock band Scorpions, formed in 1965, returned with their new album, "Rock Believer," created in the studio during the lockdown in their home base Hannover. “The album was written and recorded in the style of the classic Scorpions DNA with core Schenker/Meine compositions. We went back to the essence of what defined us in the first place,” says front-man Klaus Meine. He goes on to explain how the new songs came to have such incredible, fresh energy and enthusiasm: “We recorded the album as a band, live, in one room, as we did back in the Eighties. We can’t wait to get started and finally play for our fans again.” The sound of the new album has massive energy, delivers a real adrenaline rush and shows uncompromising quality. The record consists of excellent tracks, each a lyrical short story, minimal poems in prose, presented in a lavish sonic guise, featuring the Scorpions’ characteristic trademarks from the early 1980s, yet produced from a 2020s perspective. The wealth of inspiration from their longstanding career is an overflowing treasure chest that forges an arc between yesterday and tomorrow. "Rock Believer" is perhaps the group’s most characteristic album to date – a recording by a band at the pinnacle of their musical art. Scorpions are estimated to have sold over 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling hard rock and heavy metal bands. One of their most recognized hits is "Wind of Change" from "Crazy World," a symbolic anthem of the political, which remains one of the world's best-selling singles with over 14 million copies.
