Switzerland’s hard rock machine Shakra return and comes back out swinging on their latest album, the 13-track BACK ON TRACK. Even though Shakra has undergone a lead singer shakeup, this release hasn’t deviated too far away from the seasoned unit’s hard rock and commercial metal foundation, sticking to their tried and true formula of writing melodic metal bursting with humongous hooks accompanied by rounds of snarling guitars (“MMTWGR”). Attaining an admirable level of consistency throughout their tenure by keeping their sound protected from most modern influences in the hard rock realm, Shakra is a proven commodity that you can rely to turn towards when you need a buffer between your Firehouse, Winger and old school Def Leppard listening sessions (“Yesterday’s Gone”).
