Michael Schenker Fest debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘The Beast in the Shadow‘ Wednesday.  The song is featured in Michael Schenker Fest’s latest album Revelation (2019).

The song’s musical arrangement is a classic old school rock arrangement, led by the work of Schenker.  Graham Bonnett, one of the singers who appears on the album, adds more depth to the song with his vocal delivery.

Schenker discussed Bonnet’s vocal performance on the song in a recent interview.

“It’s a great song that contains a very heartfelt performance from Graham Bonnet, and the video shows Graham in an even more heartfelt fashion, he said. “It´s a fantastic video with some very pure emotions being expressed by Graham. This song also presents the other side of the album – there are many upbeat rocking tracks that have not yet been heard by some listeners, by those who haven’t heard the whole album. I am very excited about the Revelation album – its one of my best to date. Listen to the album and you will see what I mean. Keep on rocking and stay safe. All my best to you and enjoy.”

The lyrical theme presented in ‘The Beast in the Shadow’ comes across as tackling the topic of mortality, as the song’s subject talks about the passing of all of the people he has known in his life.

‘The Beast in the Shadow’ is the fourth single produced from Revelation.  The album has also spawned the singles ‘Behind The Smile,’ ‘Rock Steady‘ and ‘Sleeping With The Lights On.’
