Long-running Swedish-American melodic hard rock band TALISMAN — which revolves around Jeff Scott Soto (also of JOURNEY, formerly of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) and Marcel Jacob (bass, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) — kicked off its "farewell" tour last month at Festivalplein in Hellendoorn, Holland. You can read more information about each of the gigs in Marcel Jacob's online tour diary at this location.TALISMAN's latest album, "7", was released on October 20, 2006 via Frontiers Records. Recorded under the working title of "Bar" (which was dropped in the end in favor of the more immediate "7"), the CD sees once again the combination of four amazing talents flourishing to the highest levels. The experienced Swedish bass player and songwriter Marcel Jacob teamed once again with Jeff Scott Soto, drummer Jamie Borger (TREAT) and guitarist Fredrik Åkesson (now in OPETH; until recently the second axeman in ARCH ENEMY) to give birth to a sensational new recording that, according to Jacob, "might simply be our best ever."
