Scorpions work on old material

2012-06-14 by Voivod STAFF | 21 Comments
During an interview for the Arizona Republic site, Scorpions guitarist Mattias Jabs revealed that the band has entered the studio in order to work on unfinished material that originates itself from the era of critically acclaimed Scorpions albums, namely Black Out, Love At First Sting, Crazy World and Savage Amusement.


In his own words:

The first three months of this year, we took off to work in the studio, resurrecting unfinished songs from what some people say was our best time, leftovers from the albums "Blackout," "Love at First Sting," "Crazy World," "Savage Amusement," all the albums from the '80s and early '90s. There's so much strong material, but it hasn't ever been finished, especially the lyrics. They're like "Blah blah blah blah blah." It was recorded like you would record a demo, no click track, anything. But the vibe is great because it's from the time when we were starting out.

Wait I'm a bit confused.

Weren't these guys supposed to call it quits some time soon?

Not that I want them to quit but... Oh well..

Comeblack is such a witty album name. Lulz.

But I'm actually curious as to how this will sound. There are times when this band sucked, but their 70s and early 80s material are damn good.

This band killed it's reputation with their decisions over the last 20 years or so.

Saw them last year at a festival, it was good, but they seriously should think about really quitting the game, 40 years is more than enough. I'm curious to know how this turns out though (vocal-wise, it shouldn't be anything special since he can't sing too well anymore)

Band is definitely a classic, but more than likely those "unfinished" tunes are going to get fucked up.

Good god why? People need to stop paying for these old bands to ruin their careers with awful attempts at another paycheck. And this one sucked to begin with.

"resurrecting unfinished songs from what some people say was our best time", their best time was Fly to the Rainbow, In trance, Virgin Killers and Taken by the Force. Those albums are heavy rock jewels, the rest is bullshit

Not sure what to make of this... It could be cool, but I'm not a fan of their newest albums... As much as I like the Scorpions, I'd rather them just throw the towel than risk a royal fuck up.
