Lande performed with the surviving HEAVEN & HELL members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice at a very special tribute to their fallen bandmate, Ronnie James Dio, at this year's High Voltage festival on July 24 at Victoria Park in London, England. The musicians were also joined by legendary former DEEP PURPLE and BLACK SABBATH man Glenn Hughes.
Jorn honored the musical legacy of Ronnie James Dio with his new album, which was released on July 2 in Europe and July 27 in the U.S. via Frontiers Records.
Handpicking some lesser known tunes of the Dio era, along with some of the true classics, Jorn offers a fine collection of songs that present the music of the man and the artist, with a unique twist. The CD also includes an original song for which a video, shot by Thomas Tjader (PRETTY MAIDS, IN FLAMES), was produced (see the clip below). The album was mixed by Tommy Hansen at Jailhouse Studios.
