SCHUBERT IN ROCK (feat. Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Martin, Bernie Marsden & more) (2013)
SCHUBERT IN ROCK is the project of Austrian hard rock guitarist and concert promoter Klaus Schubert, mastermind behind the band No Bros and founder & owner of Schubl Productions.
Schubert In Rock has been put together by Schubert with the intention of bringing together some of the greatest hard rock musicians and singers he’d admired most throughout his career, and re-recording a whole host of the No Bros songs with them.
Klaus said of choosing who was going to star: “Well, I listened to my old material, and I thought – that singer would suit perfectly to that song – and made the Christmas list!”
A Christmas list is most definitely true – the entire project is great name after great name, with everybody bringing their own style to the table.
We have monster shouters like Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), Biff Byford (Saxon), Doogie White (Cornerstone, La Paz, Michael Schenker), Joe Lynn Turner (need some? no) or Marc Storace (Krokus, China), and terrific players such as Don Airey, Bernie Marsden, Neil Murray, all ex- Whitesnake and countless more.
The idea was going to have a one off album released at the end of the autumn, and a one off gig played in Innsbruck in December. The project has come on so well since it started that there’s talk of expanding it into more, and listening to the quality material featured on this CD, this lot could tour forever.
The songs in “Schubert In Rock” have that magical undercurrent of pure classic hard rock running through the heart of them, performed with passion and recorded with a terrific production sound.
This record does not come out of the speakers like a ‘puzzle project’, all feels like a real band conducted by Klaus Schubert’s sharp riffs and solos, a truly capable guitarist with excellent versatility.
You can hear an obvious chemistry between all involved, and seems the musicians and Klaus have worked together so well and enjoyed each other’s input so much that they’ve been working on original material too apart from the No Bros material, which is a fantastic development for the band to be making and offers the promise of potential for the future.
“Schubert In Rock” is an extremely enjoyable CD to any fan of the timeless, immortal classic hard rock sounds.
