Right before the COVID-19 pandemic, Swiss Hard Rock band Shakra released their twelfth studio album Mad World (2020). Then, the world shut down, tours were canceled/rescheduled, and musicians were forced to “wait out” the situation. Instead of sitting back and doing nothing, the band started working on new material for their thirteenth studio album Invincible (2023). The album comes out on June 30, 2023 through AFM Records.

Metal Express Radio’s Lana Teramae had a chat with Shakra’s lead vocalist Mark Fox about Invincible, what it’s like putting together a setlist for the live shows, his musical influences, and a whole lot more.

    Lana is a reviewer at Metal Express Radio from Honolulu, Hawaii. She's always had a passion for music, but she didn't get into Hard Rock and Heavy Metal music until she discovered Rick Allen's story in the summer of 2019. She was inspired by his determination to play drums for Def Leppard again after losing his left arm in a car accident. From there, her tastes expanded to other bands such as AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Judas Priest, Saxon, Cinderella, and Overkill. Aside from listening to music, she loves watching YouTube and writing on her personal blog.
