We've all been waiting for it haven‘t we really, the new record from Swiss Hard Rock powerhouse Shakra? But just 19 months after their critically acclaimed “Fall” album, this band now returns with “Infected” and off we go again. After their ass-kicking performances on the extensive HAMMERFALL / STRATOVARIUS tour, it's now for real: one listen and you're indeed “Infected”!
The band, of course, knows exactly what they need to do to satisfy their fans. Stunning Hard Rock anthems full of power and passion, neither sounding old-fashioned nor denying their traditional roots – that’s “Infected”.
The band's goals were definitely higher than in previous years though. “We had very clear and definite aims,” says spokesman Mark Fox. “INFECTED had to be the best album in the history of SHAKRA. Not only did we want to write the best songs but also to create the best sound possible with the best cover artwork and the coolest band pictures”. “Infected” perfectly sums up just what keeps SHAKRA going strong: all members have a “virus” you just can't shift!
