Shakra – “Powerplay”

Shakra – “Powerplay” (AFM Records)

What a stupendous way to kick off the New Year – Shakra’s “Powerplay” is like a blast of hot passionate energy cutting thru the winter cold big time! This is the 9th album for these Swiss rockers and I believe the 2nd with their Indian vocalist John Prakesh, but man, have they come together in the last coupla years and the songs on “Powerplay” attest to that: gravelly rock dawg vocals, kicking rock riffola and big rhythm definitely amp up ass grabbing songs like ‘Life Is Now’, ‘Wonderful Life’ and ‘Don’t Keep Me Hanging’. Even better are the passionate melodies from the vocal harmonies to the superb guitar work and solos, making this a superb all around package that will definitely garner Shakra some international recognition!
