Paganini is a hard rock band from Switzerland founded by Marco Paganini (ex-member of the band Viva). In 1985 they released their debut album, Weapon of Love. The song "Berlin by Night", was in the soundtrack of the German movie Alpha City.In the early 1980’s, Marco Paganini was the lead vocalist in the Hannover based rock group Viva. At the time he was singing in the pioneering English metal band Tygers of pan tang, when he was discovered by Barbara Schenker at a double bill with The Scorpions. Rudolph Schenker invited him to join them on their return to Germany and taking them up on the offer Marco and Barbara formed Viva together. Being one of the top European acts at the time, Marco recorded 2 LP’s with Viva, before embarking on a solo career.Along with Viva guitarist Ralph Murphy, Marco returned to Switzerland to form the group Paganini. Their first release “Weapon of love”, spawned the hit “Berlin by night”, which reached the charts in Germany thru Polygram, and as well landed on the movie soundtrack for “Alpha city”. The follow up album “It’s a long way to the top” saw chart action again and earned them the offer of support act for Motley Crue on their “Theater of pain” tour.Several releases followed thru the years including the album “Detox” which Marco recorded together withAngie Schiliro one time guitarist with Kingdom Come which as well features the track “Time” which was written by Prince for Marco while at Paisley Park thru his association with Polygram. 2 singles entitled “My life” and “Follow the sun” saw Marco.reunited with his old producer Vic Vergeat of the rock group “Toad” In 2003 Marco teamed up with New York producer ZouZou Mamoux to record the CD“Esoterrorism”, their cryptic reflections of the modern times we live in and a call to arms for society as a whole. In 2005, Marco and ZouZou finished the new production entitled “Resurrection”, which is a celebration of Paganini’s distigushed repetoire re-recorded in a modern context, inspired by countless requests for the classic tracks from Marco’s large fan base.
Yesterrock, the excellent Munich based label specializing in re-releasing classic albums, managed to put out the first 2 records by PAGANINI, both impeccably digitally remastered and containing bonus tracks. Originally released in 1985, "Weapon Of Love" is the debut album from Swiss / German melodic hard rock band Paganini, named after lead vocalist Marco "Mark" Paganini.When PAGANINI was founded, Marco already had a vast experience having recorded two albums with the interesting band VIVA, the group fronted by Scorpions' Michael & Rudolf Schenker sister.Marco wanted a more commercial sound, the kind of melodic hard rock that was so prevalent in the mid '80s: tight guitars, strong rhythm section, and catchy choruses.PAGANINI's style is typically European, especially German. Marco Paganini has a strong, sometimes sensual raspy voice perfectly suited for this type of music, and the songs are carried by pair of flashy guitarists in Ralph Murthy and Edgar Zanoni.Put them together and you get a hard rockin' album with cool hooks, loads of melody and fine choruses.I'd put PAGANINI's style & sound somewhere between HEAVY PETTIN' (title track 'Weapon of Love', 'You Got Me Crazy'), KEEL ('Guardian Angel'), and MAMA'S BOYS, there's some McAULEY / SCHENKER touches ('Break it Up', 'I Got What You Need'), and also a bit of an Americanized melodies akin an early AUTOGRAPH ('I Can Feel It') and DOKKEN.Easily my favorite track is the AORish 'Not Just Another Affair', a song with equal parts of Euro / American influences with dry / sharp guitars, lots of harmony vocals and that kind of 'action movie soundtrack feel.The other track I love from this album is the haunting rhythm of 'Berlin By Night', a groovy rocker with which the band had a radio hit in Germany. The song was one of the lead tunes of the now legendary Munich City Nights compilations / radio show.While not essential, if you are fan of the classic mid-Eighties melodic hard rock sound - particularly the European variety - PAGANINI's "Weapon Of Love" is a worthy addition to your collection. Especially this remastered reissue: for years it was a much sought after piece by collectors, selling at high prices on e-bay… if they can be found at all.Anyway, this Yesterrock release has become pretty scarce as well, quite hard to find.The results of this Yesterrock remaster are pretty good considering the low budget production (at places drum sound is not the best), and as bonus you have 4 (!) versions of the non-album single 'My Life', another cut that made its way into Munich City Nights radio.Pure '80s stuff requested by one of you in this remastered version.
