DESTINY Announces New Singer

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."

Jonas 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 with Jonas on vocals in December when a digital single from "The Incompatibility Of Philosophical Terminology" is released.

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.
