Editorial Reviews

Powerplay : the title says it all. The ninth album to be released by hard rock band Shakra will go on sale on 29 January 2013, picking up where their last chart-breaking album, Back on Track, left off. This LP catapulted the hard rockers from Emmental to No. 2 on the Swiss album charts. For a band that wants to develop, their goal has to be to improve on that. The new album, Powerplay, is the most varied Shakra album the hard rock scene has ever seen. It would certainly not be a lie to say that Powerplay is the best Shakra album of all time.

Format: Audio CD
2013’s Powerplay is the ninth studio album from Swiss melodic hard rock veterans Shakra, and the second to feature new vocalist John Prakesh. The band made a bold statement with their previous album featuring Prakesh (2011’s Back on Track), and Powerplay picks up right where that album left off.

Like Back on Track, Powerplay is the work of a harder, more metallic Shakra. You can still hear the Gotthard-style melodic rock they started with in these songs, but there’s much more edge, and that’s a good thing. The songs are more dynamic, and the harder rocking vibe suits Prakesh’s voice quite well. It’s probably not as memorable an album as Back on Track, but it definitely gets the job done. Highlights of Powerplay include “The Mask,” “Dear Enemy” and “Dream of Mankind.”

Even an average Shakra album is going to be better than much of the competition. If you’re already a Shakra fan, you know you need to get a copy of Powerplay. If you’re a fan of bands like Jaded Heart, Pretty Maids and Gotthard and haven’t heard Shakra yet, now is a great time to fix that. Unfortunately, Powerplay is the last album we’ll hear from Shakra with Prakesh on vocals, so the band will have yet another chance to reinvent itself.

I love this album. One of the best out there. Shakra are a breath of fresh air in a world full of hip hop and rap crap.

Definitely worth checking them out! I bought their previous release last year and was really impressed. I can't believe more people don't know about this band!
