“Powerplay”: the title says it all. The 9th album of Swiss power rockers SHAKRA, picks up where their last chart-breaking album, “Back on Track”, left off.


'Even though it is difficult to top being No. 2 in the charts, we believe that the new album has got what it takes to do just that!', the band explains in a mix of confidence and sober analysis. 'We are very satisfied with “Powerplay”. Now it's up to the public and the fans”.


Even after 20 years of band history, the original band members Thom Blunier (guitar), Thomas Muster (guitar), and Roger Tanner (drums), but also the band's two young guns, Dominik Pfister (bass) and most particularly singer John Prakesh, have grown together over the years to build a unit that has just one overriding goal: to make good, honest, hand-made hard rock. While SHAKRA had to deal with a few line-up changes over the years, the five-man band now at last has the time to focus completely on what it does best: rock'n'roll. The result is Blunier, Muster, Tanner, Pfister, and Prakesh's “Powerplay”, an album that is utterly irresistible.


The 13-track LP is the most varied SHAKRA album so far. The band has grown and blossomed in this formation throughout the 50 gigs they have played together. Songs such as “Dream of Mankind”, “Higher”, “Wonderful Life” and “Because Of You” display the whole variety of SHAKRA’s sound. The album was once again produced by Thom Blunier in the Powerride studios. “Powerplay” is a high-class traditional but at the same time up-to-date piece of work. What more could a fan ask for?
