MICHAEL SCHINKEL’S ETERNAL FLAME style is inspired by the 80’s and 90’s (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, RAINBOW and DEEP PURPLE).
After the first two albums “Desire” (1998 – Point Music & Dreamchaser Records) and “King of the King” (2002 – MTM Music) 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 Flamealbum. 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 by 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.
