When it comes to love
Sometimes it can be tough
But somehow we got
Never quite enough
I know I can rely on you
You can rely on me
So our journey can go on
I really feel we can’t go wrong
When I see you I just wanna hold you
I want you to know that I really care
When I feel your heart beat while I hold you
I will do the best to be your loving man
I don’t need too much
To get myself through life
Music and love is what
Makes me feel alive
I sacrifice to find a way
How I can make your day
For my love for you is real
That’s why I tell you how I feel
I will be there to catch your fall
When you really need me
When the weight of the world is on your shoulders
I will be there to share with you
Moments to remember
Moments we can hold on to last forever
With their first releases “Shakra” (1997), and “Moving Force” (1999), and by touring with Great White and Uriah Heep, the early career of this Swiss band was a steep learning curve with dramatic success but the real breakthrough came with their third record “Power Ride” (2001) when singer Pete Wiedmer was forced to leave the band because of ill health, replaced by Mark Fox. Mark immediately put his stamp on the following album “Rising” (2003), which saw Shakra rise higher on the career ladder than ever before and hit the German and Swiss album charts. The band played several concerts and festivals, one of which was the prestigious “Bang Your Head” event. The controversial video clip for the song “Chains Of Temptation” showed singer Fox giving himself a heroin injection.
And, after supporting Iron Maiden at the Swiss “Spirit Of Rock” festival, Shakra then took the decision to tour through 12 countries with HammerFall and Stratovarius. The band played a huge show in Zurich with Guns N’ Roses in 2006.
Shortly after the Everest album was released, Mark Fox left the band and was replaced by John Prakesh on vocals.
New releases include “Back On Track” in Feb 2011 and “Powerplay” in Jan 2013.
On April 23, 2014, John Prakesh announced he was leaving Shakra.’
October, 2015, Mark Fox joined Shakra again. A new single, Hello, was released.
