After four successful albums and several tours with bands like MANOWAR, DIO, MOTÖRHEAD, SAXON, U.D.O., ICED EARTH and NEVERMORE, Swedish heavy metal masters LION'S SHARE are back with their long-awaited comeback masterpiece, "Emotional Coma", due out on June 15 in Europe through AFM Records. The band features guitar player and founding member Lars Chriss, along with vocalist Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS, WUTHERING HEIGHTS), bass player Sampo Axelsson (GLENN HUGHES) and well-known session drummer Richard Evensand (CHIMAIRA, SOILWORK, THERION).

Commented Chriss: "We are extremely proud and honored to be a part of such a great label as AFM Records. AFM is home to many great bands and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of that roster. It feels great to work with a label staff that understands our music and goals. We are looking forward to a long and successful cooperation."

According to a press release, "Emotional Coma" is "the heaviest and most powerful LION'S SHARE record to date" and it features guest appearances by Bruce Kulick (KISS), Glen Drover (MEGADETH) and Mats Levén (THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN).

Commented Markus Wosgien, A&R of AFM Records: "The new record is heavy metal at its finest. It shows the band from another side, less progressive, more straight and metal. If you are into the old gods like SAXON, JUDAS PRIEST or ACCEPT — you will love this unique and high-class record, which is a new beginning in the history of this amazing band."
