The Michael Schenker Group Assault Attack LP (Picture Disc)
Third Album On Picture Disc Vinyl LP!
Featuring Vocals From Rainbow's Graham Bonnet!
The Michael Schenker Group is a rock back formed in 1979 by former UFO and
Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker. Their music is described as mostly melodic
hard rock with progressive undertones. Michael Schenker is known for his
unorthodox approach to lead guitar, as well as his half-black, half-white Gibson
Flying V guitar.
The third release from The Michael Schenker Group was originally released in
1982 and reached #19 on the UK albums chart. Now reissued on the newly
independent Chrysalis Records, the LP is the only album from the group to
feature former Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet.
"Michael Schenker's pairing with former Rainbow wailer Graham Bonnet made
perfect sense, since Schenker's facile, classically flavored Euro metal guitar
style is a graceful extension of Ritchie Blackmore's innovations. The results on
Assault Attack are pleasing; while Schenker predictably delivers top-notch
performances, Bonnet's vocals are edgier and more engaging than those of former
MSG singer Gary Barden." - Andy Hinds, allmusic.com
