Essence Of Sorrow Recruits Germán Pascual

Essence Of Sorrow - the Finnish/Swedish band founded by Jani Stefanovic (Solution .45, Miseration) released debut album "Reflections Of The Obscure" in 2006 featuring both Mats Leven (ex. Yngwie Malmsteen, Gus G, ex.Therion, Candlemass) and Christian Palin (ex. Adagio) on vocals.

Due to Mats and his busy schedule, Christian Palin was set to take care of the live duties. The band got off with a promising start doing shows in Scandinavia and northern parts of Europe.
