Michael Schinkel’s Eternal Flame – Smoke on the mountain
Label: Rock of Angels records
German neoclassical heavy metal band “Michael Schinkel’s Eternal Flame” have announced the release of their third album “Smoke On The Mountain” on May 18th via Rock Of Angles records. The album includes 13 tracks, and features Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Ring of Fire) and Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum) on vocals.
The Album artwork was made by Gustavo Sazes (Angra, Firewind, Iced Earth, Dream Evil).
After the first two albums “Desire” (1998) and “King of the King” (2002) it was the end of Eternal Flame.
Michael Schinkel (singer and guitarist) and Helmut Kohlpaintner (keyboard player, bassist) decided to work as composers and producers for other musicians
and bands and founded the company “Enooma-Media musicproduction” in Munich.
Again and again they received calls, letters and e-mails from fans, with the request to produce a new Eternal Flame album.
It then started in 2012. Helmut Kohlpaintner and Michael Schinkel discussed the project and quickly found partners for lyric writing
such as Timothy Touchton , known for lyrics such as “Go for Gold” (Olympics in Seoul 1988), “Sail Away” (Joe Cocker) as well as 11 Top 40 and 3 top 5 hits.
The album was created by further guests such as Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen and Ring of Fire) and Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen & John Norum).
Other musicians such as Thomas Keller (bass) and Robert Lipp(bass) from past Eternal Flame days as well as the drummer Michael Hencky also shared their know how.
