Lorna Shore To Release Instrumental Version Of “Immortal”

Michael Schenker Premieres New Video For His Version Of Scorpions’ “In Search Of The Peace Of Mind”

Michael Schenker has premiered a new video for his version of Scorpions’ “In Search Of The Peace Of Mind.” This track is from the Michael Schenker Group’s new album “Immortal,” which was released today (January 29).

Schenker commented:

“‘In Search Of The Peace Of Mind’ had to be my 50th-anniversary celebration song. It means so much to me, because it was my very first musical composition I wrote at the age of 15. And it was also the first song I had ever put on a record, also at the age of 15. In addition, this song from the original ‘Lonesome Crow’ Scorpions album, the very first album the Scorpions had ever recorded, has a solo on it that that was so perfect I would never change a note in 1000 years. I have no idea where it came from, alongside the other solos on ‘Lonesome Crow’, where you can hear that I am an amateur, young and developing as a kid. But this lead break came from somewhere else. I have no idea how it happened.

I wanted to re-record this song for ‘Immortal’, making it an epic, and put an additional long solo on the end of the song, which turned out so amazing. The sound describes my 50-year journey expressed on lead guitar. Again, it ended up so amazing, like an inner conversation throughout my life — questions and answers; making choices expressed on lead guitar.

With Gary Barden, Ronnie Romero, Robin McAuley and Doogie White making a contribution to my 50th anniversary, it turned out complete. Not to forget the amazing contribution of Simon Phillips on drums, Barry Sparks on bass, as well as Steve Mann on keyboards. Fantastic.

This is the fourth single for ‘Immortal’ — 50th anniversary of Michael Schenker.”

Michael Schenker Group Premiere “Sail The Darkness” Lyric Video

The Michael Schenker Group have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Sail The Darkness.” This track is from the band’s new album “Immortal,” which will be released on January 29. Vocalist Ronnie Romero commented:

“Since I listened the demo, I got the feeling that this would become in a great song, because it sounds like the great old hard rock songs and the riff is just Michael Schenker at his best. And to me, it’s even more special because I had the chance to write the lyrics. I’m pretty sure the fans gonna love this one.”

Michael Schenker Group Premiere “After The Rain” Video

The Michael Schenker Group have premiered a new video for their new song “After The Rain.” This track is from the band’s new album “Immortal,” which will be released on January 29.

Schenker commented:

“The song ‘After The Rain’ was coming out of the blue. A power ballad I have never done before. Michael Voss wrote some lyrics and vocal melodies, after I had put down my musically composition on backing track for this song. The next morning, Michael Voss played me what he had sang to it, and I said, ‘This is so beautiful, only you can sing this song.’ And it turned out amazing.”

Michael Voss added:

“This is an outstanding mellow-tuned power ballad with some unique Michael Schenker clean picking guitar style. When I first listened to Michael’s rough sketches, I was singing a kinda ‘lala’ melody that automatically drove me into the line, ‘Say have you been lonely.’ From there, I felt it must deal about a sad loss and a departure of a big love… but there will be sun and light… after the rain.”

Immortal’s Demonaz & Horgh Fighting Over Rights To The Band’s Name

Back in 2015, Immortal’s Harald “Demonaz” Nævdal and Reidar “Horgh” Horghagen ended up winning a legal dispute against Olve “Abbath” Eikemo over the rights to the band’s name. However, it appears the duo are now fighting each other over the trademark.

According to VG, Demonaz successfully registered the Immortal trademark with the Norwegian Patent Office in July 2019. However, Horgh has since appealed the decision causing Demonaz to lose his exclusive rights to the name. The moniker is now said to be held by the band as a whole, rather than by individual members.

Horgh said the following about the situation:

“It could never have occurred to me to register the trademark by myself, as Nævdal has done here, but I have found myself having to fight to keep the rights I have earned through a long career in this band. It is, and after all has been for many years, a large part of my livelihood.”

“We have jointly as a band built up the trademark Immortal, and it is therefore right that the trademark should be a joint ownership.”

Demonaz said he disagrees with the decision, adding that he is the last original member of the group:

“I’m the band’s only remaining original member. I am also the only one who has been on all of the band’s releases”

He also revealed that he has already written a new album:

“Fans know well who music and lyrics have come from the very beginning, and I have no plans to disappoint them even if conflicts arise.”

Despite the current dispute, Horgh is still hopeful that the band can return to the live stage one day:

“It has been my goal all the way, and I know that this is something Immortal fans want and have been waiting for a long time. I hope in the long run that we can manage to put these disagreements behind us, and again look ahead as a band.”
