SCORPIONS – Virgin Killer ’76 [remastered for the first time ever] (2023) *HQ*
Saying that SCORPIONS can look back on an eventful history as a band would be an understatement. Their spectacular story is now becoming a new and very colorful experience: With “Scorpions – Colours Of Rock”, BMG is announcing the reissue of 12 album highlights by the legendary German hard rock band who have shaped the music world — now appearing on colored vinyl.
Alongside versions of “Fly To The Rainbow”, “In Trance”, “Virgin Killer” and “Humanity (Hour 1)”, remastered for the first time ever, are further handpicked treasures including “Savage Amusement”, “World Wide Live”, “Love At First Sting”, “Blackout”, “Animal Magnetism”, “Lovedrive”, “Tokyo Tapes” and “Taken By Force”.
“Virgin Killer” remastered 2023 will be released on May 5, only days before SCORPIONS embark on the European leg of their ‘Rock Believer’ world tour, which will have had previously taken them across South America — from El Salvador via Colombia, Brazil and Argentina to Chile — during the first months of the year.
Relentless success, constant musical evolution, and ass-kicking performances worldwide — as colorful and eclectic as the career path of the biggest German rock band has been and still is to this day, just as multifaceted are the vinyl colors of these 12 reissues.
The colors chosen for the vinyl versions not only reflect the iridescent band history, they are also paired with the style of the original artwork of each individual album. These new remasters will be available digitally as well.
A particular treat for hardcore SCORPIONS fans, of course, must definitely be the four albums remastered for the first time in history.
