Fabio Leone Guesting On Twilight Force Album

Swedish adventure metal band Twilight Force is set to release new studio album "Heroes Of Mighty Magic" on August 26th through Nuclear Blast.

Today, the band can proudly announce the guest bards on this forthcoming record. Fabio Lione from Rhapsody Of Fire joined on the track "There And Back Again" while Joakim Brodén from Sabaton appears on the the title track.

Joakim commented: "When one of the best bands to come out of Sweden in a long time turns out to be your friends and people you have played with many times over the years, it's quite easy to feel proud about being invited to sing on the title-track on their new album, fantastic!"

The band adds: "It is an honour to have two of the most powerful, esteemed and renowned voices of the genre appear on 'Heroes Of Mighty Magic.' Joakim Brodén and Fabio Lione are two very different sonic entities. They each bring something very unique and captivating to our tonal landscape. Our old and revered friend Joakim appears on the title track of the album, and provides an excellent contrast to Chrileon's voice, at just the right moment in the song. Nothing in the world even comes close to Joakim's unbelievably mighty voice!

"Fabio did an amazing performance on 'There And Back Again.' He entered the Twilight Forge with a brave and proud mind, emerged victoriously and left us in complete awe. His familiar voice provided the track with an absolutely magical contribution. We feel really humbled and grateful to have been given the opportunity to create something alongside these two titans of the genre!" More...

Sabaton Announces New Studio Album

The Swedish heavy metal heroes from Sabaton are currently working on their new studio album, entitled "The Last Stand," which is going to be released worldwide on August 19th through Nuclear Blast. Pär Sundström comments:

"We once work again with Peter Tägtgren in his newly upgraded and top class Abyss studio in Sweden to record, produce and mix the album. The mastering will be done by Jonas Kjellgren who also works in the same building in nice Pärlby on the countryside of Sweden.

"Both 'Carolus Rex' and 'Heroes' was done in the same way and we feel very comfortable to return to the same place and people again. Fans will recognize the sound of the album as Sabaton, but we really feel we took it a step forward this time."

The artwork on the album is made by Peter Sallaí who has been with Sabaton since "Carolus Rex." Pär Sundström explains: "We had the idea to make an image reflecting soldiers of different times representing the different historical battles we sing about on the new album. This only reveals a small part of the album topics though."

"The concept of a last stand has always fascinated me, and both me and Pär were 'all in excited' about the subject so it was an easy choice to make," says vocalist Joakim Broden about the album title.

Sundström adds: "We have always several ideas for albums to work with. Since there are countless different views and angles of war, we will unfortunately never run out of ideas. We kinda felt that the last stand was something perfect for Sabaton. Something we really wanted to do. 'Heroes' was a perfect theme and 'The Last Stand' is right down our alley too. It was exciting to do the research." More...

It’ll be a very special show, so don’t miss it. I’ll no doubt be having my fair share of drinks and Jagermeister afterwards and no doubt be returning to work feeling buzzed yet terrible.
