Michael Schenker: New live CD/DVD from Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock


Filmed and recorded at Madrid’s Joy Eslava Theatre on November 19th 2015 as part of Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock 2015 European tour, “On A Mission: Live In Madrid” features live performances of their recent rock radio hits Vigilante Man, Communion and Live and Let Live, as well as the MSG/UFO/Scorpions classics Doctor Doctor, Lights Out, Too Hot To Handle, Rock You Like A Hurricane and Rock Bottom. Click here for the official press page, CD/DVD artwork and hi res photos -

The set began with Doctor Doctor from the UFO era and within seconds, fans and band alike had warmed up to the temperature at which rock melts. This high level of enthusiasm was maintained throughout, and turned the heavy rock show into a special event that will stay forever in the memories of both the band and audience. The sheer density of hits from four decades, including Lovedrive and Blackout (Scorpions), Lights Out and Rock Bottom (UFO) or Victim Of Illusion (MSG), plus songs from the last three Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock albums, made it an evening fans would never forget.

The concert was recorded using state-of-the-art sound and video technology. 4K technology cameras provide perfect, crystal clear pictures. Additional room microphones were placed at different levels in the auditorium, all of which will provide an additional Dolby Atmos 3D mix on the Blu-ray edition.

John Browne: Monuments and Mark Five: 35 – “Stygian Blue” Playthrough
Monuments guitarist John Browne brings another round of 7-string wizardry to the Tone Sessions. The song “Stygian Blue” is a brand new, unreleased song from the band’s early 2016 writing sessions for their third Monuments album, due out this year.

This playthrough is a great showcase of the versatility of the Mark Five: 35 and also highlights it’s potential in real world high gain rock & metal gigging applications. Classic Mark Series crunch, gain and solo sounds are provided in Ch. 2. Combined with the graphic EQ and multi-speaker closed-back cabs like 2x12s and 4x12s, the punch and tone is massive and big-gig ready while offering the snarl and sparkle of Mesa’s well-regarded four EL-84 Dyna-Watt power section. The Mark Five: 35 is even offered as a 4-space rack mount for those looking to build compact gigging/touring rigs.

Recorded with John Browne’s Signature Mayones Duvell Qatsi guitar with Bareknuckle Ceramic Nailbomb pickups into the following signal chains:

Ch. 1 Clean: Mayones Duvell Qatsi JB Signature Guitar with Bareknuckle Ceramic Nailbomb – Jim Dunlop MXR Carbon Copy – Origin Effects Cali 76 Pedal – Mark Five: 35 – Rectifier 4x12 Traditional Straight

Ch. 2 Rhythm: Mayones Duvell Qatsi JB Signature Guitar with Bareknuckle Ceramic Nailbomb – Reaper Pedals JB Signature Pandemonium OD – Boss NS 2 – Mark Five: 35 – Rectifier 4x12 Traditional Straight

Ch. 2 Lead: Mayones Duvell Qatsi JB Signature Guitar with Bareknuckle Ceramic Nailbomb – Jim Dunlop MXR Carbon Copy – Reaper Pedals JB Signature Pandemonium OD – Boss NS 2 – Mark Five: 35 – Rectifier 4x12 Traditional Straight

Recorded with the Mark Five: 35 Head and 4x12 Rectifier Traditional with Vintage 30 speakers. Mic’d with a Shure SM57, Mojave MA-301 FET and the CabClone.

Ch. 1 Clean: Mixed 50% Mojave MA-301 and 46% CabClone w/ Open Back Cab Sim and 4% Stereo Room Mic for ambience

Larry Mitchell plays his "HoneyDripper" TonePrint for Viscous Vibe.

Larry Mitchell has created an extremely versatile vibe tone here. Giving you all kinds of cool old-school swirly tones simply by turning the speed knob.
