Only two days after the departure of their former vocalist Kelly "Sundown" Carpenter, Danish progressive metallers Beyond Twilight have announced Björn Jansson of Tears Of Anger as substitution. Comments the band:
"We are proud to announce that our new lead vocalist is Björn Jansson. Coming from Sweden we warmly welcome him as new family member in Beyond Twilight. We are absolutely thrilled about our new reinforcement. Björn is an outstanding vocalist and fits the band perfectly. This also makes it possible for us to finally use our base in Scandinavia bringing back and setting up our camp here. No doubt this is a healthy situation for us as for playing live and touring which we have been dreaming about for a long time. Björn is experienced and you might also know him from his albums with Tears Of Anger and Bob Katsionis Imagenary. When getting in touch with Björn we found out that he had been a Beyond Twilight fan for several years. What better commitment and conditions could we ask for? What really matters to us is that within less than 24 hours Björn showed his commitment by delivering vocal recordings. Not just vocal recordings but fantastic vocals in our own humble opinion. So there you have it!"
Bob has become an official member of heavy power metallers Firewind, the band of famous guitar virtuoso Gus G. and made his debut with them in their 3rd release “Forged By Fire”, already out in Japan through Toshiba-EMI with a release date for Rest Of World settled for January 2005 through Century Media.
Bob’s debut cd “Turn of My Century” was released in Japan following the success of “Imaginary Force” (entered BURRN! Magazine’s best selling cd charts for 2 months in positions 26 and 41), featuring previously unreleased video clip of “Scary Groovie” and 5 minute keyboard and guitar jamming/shredding by Bob, as well as new, amazing cover artwork made by Havancsak Gyula who also did the artwork for the latest Annihilator cd “All For You” as well as for their forthcoming DVD release.
Imaginery‘s second cd entitled “Long Lost Pride” is out in Japan through Avalon/Marquee records. Bob is now joined by two Swedish fellows, singer Bjorn Jannsson (Tears Of Anger) and bassist Olof Sundfeldt (System Shock) while drums are performed by producer Mark Adrian. This cd includes 11 tracks of Modern Melodic Heavy/Power Metal in the vein of Symphony X, Ark and Children of Bodom. European/R.O.W released will be handled most possibly by Lion Music, Finland. Guest performances/solos by Gus G, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged) and Michael Harris(Chastain).
Bob has just finished editing Nightfall’s first promo video (also directed by him) for the track “Swollen” out of Greek gothic-deathsters’ new cd entitled: “Lyssa: Rural Gods And Astonishing Punishments” where he has recorded keyboards and guitars as in previous release “I Am Jesus”.
Jeff Waters, guitarist and main man of the legendary annihilator, has confirmed his appearance in Bob Katsionis’ next, 3rd studio album. Also featured in this next release will be once again guitar master Marcel Coenen.
