"Be Aware Of Scorpions" is the seventh album released in 2001 by the German hard rock band Michael Schenker Group. The rhythms are crunchy and the solos classic Schenker, as the album as a whole continues in the direction forged by "The Unforgiven". Japanese Nippon Crown label 14-track CD album, including Japanese-only bonus track 'Ride The Lightning'.
This CD captures some of Michael's best playing to date, in a classic hard rock/metal context true to his roots and his fans. Featuring phenomenal vocalist Kelly Keeling and powerful drummer Shane Gaalaas, "The Unforgiven" smokes with red-hot rockers like "Rude Awakening", "The Mess I've Made", "Pilot Of Your Soul" and more. Schenker shows no signs of slowing down. Surprisingly good hard rock album with tons of hooks, smooth vocals and, of course, great axe work.
Written in the Sand is a studio album by the Michael Schenker Group, the first group effort after the McAuley Schenker era. Re-energized by the short-lived reunion with UFO and by the recording of Walk on Water, Michael Schenker collected yet another group of players and recorded Written in the Sand. No matter what inspired them, Schenker and the new line up of Leif Sundin on vocals, Shane Gaalaas on drums, and Barry Sparks on bass deliver some respectable metal reminiscent of the earliest and best known Michael Schenker Group albums.
Recorded just before the release of MSG's sophmore studio album and released shortly after that album was released, "One Night At Budakon" features what many consider to be the classic MSG line-up. Besides the flashy fretwork of Micheal Schenker himself, there is also consummate drummer Cozy Powell, vocalist Gary Barden (the only other member who actually performed on the first MSG album), bassist Chris Glen, and keyboardist/guitarist Paul Raymond, who had previously worked with Schenker in UFO.
This 1997 Tokyo concert showcases highlights from throughout Michael Schenker's prolific, exceptional career.

Known for his characteristic "Flying V" Gibson guitar, Michael Schenker and his band remain the quintessential gods of arena rock.
