Fans of 80’s metal are in for an uplifting rise as Swiss band Shakra release their brand-new album; “Back On Track”. The album amplifies a nostalgic sound that captivates unrequited love, temptation, and the will to persevere. Shakra’s back and better than ever with catchy tunes and great quality in sound production. The heavy-metal band formed in 1997 and has had a series of line-up changes leaving the future of the band left to debate but that all changed when John Prakesh came on board as their new vocalist replacing Mark Fox.
Listening to “Back On Track” was a great experience. Songs like “Crazy”, “When I See You”, “Yesterday’s Gone”, “Unspoken Truth and the self-titled track were all worth the wait. Shakra’s drummer Roger Tanner demonstrates how to execute the right collaborative sound with guitarists Thomas Muster, Thom Blunier and bassist Dominik Pfister. John Prakesh yells and sings powerfully in “Back On Track”.
