Long-running Gothenburg, Sweden-based metallers DESTINY
have announced the addition of vocalist Jonas Heidgert
to the group's ranks. According to the band, Jonas
"is a very talented musician and far from a newcomer to the metal scene. In 2000 he released his first of five albums with DRAGONLAND
, where he both sang and played drums on the first two albums before he chose to concentrate on the vocals on the last three. He has also recorded vocals for an album with DIABOLICUS
as well as touring with both DRAGONLAND
and the cover band METAL MONARCHS
has already begun to lay down vocals for DESTONY
's upcoming anniversary album, "The Incompatibility Of Philosophical Terminology"
, for a spring release, as well as the next official full-length CD, "Global Warming"
, for which everything but the vocals has already recorded.
Fans will get their first taste of DESTINY
on vocals in December when a digital single from "The Incompatibility Of Philosophical Terminology"
Way back in 1982, bassist Stefan Björnshög
founded one of Sweden's first true heavy metal bands, DESTINY
. Unlike most other Swedish acts that were active around the same period, DESTINY
never broke up. In 2005, DESTINY
was joined by guitarist Michael Åberg
, who previously played with NOSTRADAMEUS
Following a tour opening for former BLACK SABBATH
vocalist Tony Martin
in 2006, DESTINY
has kept an unusually low profile, partly because the band was unable to find a suitable vocalist and also because of illness and various personal tragedies.
