Scorpions represent possibly the oldest band on these pages as they've existed in some form since 1965 and Meine and Schenker were in bands together even before that. While their later albums are bland radio rock and not really metal at all, the Scorpions early work is fantastic heavy metal with incredible guitar work. The first album is more of a jazz-rock work out but when Roth joined the band heavied up and the albums up to and including 'Lovedrive' featuring spectacular guitar displays and solid material. After this the Scorpions went for a more commercial sound that has become gradually softer and more non-descript as the years go by. The band's 2004 release is undoubtedly their heaviest and most consistent album for more than a decade.
