LION'S SHARE Working On New Concept Album

Vocalist Patrik Johansson of the Swedish melodic metallers LION'S SHARE has issued the following update:

"Me, Lars [Chriss, guitar] and Sampo [Axelsson, bass] are currently working our asses off, writing new songs for the upcoming LION'S SHARE album. Almost all the songs are written now and hopefully we can enter the studio in February starting the vocal sessions. This album will be nothing but a Metal Beast! The lyrics on this one will be linked together and in that perspective this CD will be something of a concept album. We'll give you a more detailed studio report when the time is right, so stay tuned!"

Fan-filmed video footage of LION'S SHARE performing the song "Clones of Fate" at last year's Sweden Rock Festival, which took place in June 2007 in Sölvesborg, Sweden, can be viewed below.

LION'S SHARE will release its new album, "Emotional Coma", in the U.S. on January 29 via Locomotive Music. The CD was issued by AFM Records in Europe and Spiritual Beast in Japan/Asia and features guest solos from ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, and MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover.

LION'S SHARE has two songs — "Soultaker" and "The Edge of the Razor" — included on the "Magic Circle Festival 2007" double-DVD set, shot live at MANOWAR's Magic Circle Festival in Bad Arolsen, Germany on July 7, 2007.

As previously reported, ROAD TO RUIN, the new Swedish four-piece featuring LION'S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss and bassist Sampo Axelsson alongside drummer Thomas Broman (HUGHES/TURNER, JOHN NORUM, ELECTRIC BOYS) and vocalist Matti Alfonzetti (SKINTRADE, JAGGED EDGE, SCOTT GORHAM), will release its self-titled debut album in Japan on January 23 via Marquee/Avalon. The CD was issued in Europe by Metal Heaven on October 26.

According to a press release, ROAD TO RUIN's influences come "from the classic rock era and carry trademarks from artists such as WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY, DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN, RAINBOW plus — especially when it comes to the guitar sound — BLACK SABBATH."

ROAD TO RUIN was founded in the year 2005 when guitarist Chriss and Axelsson started to write some material which didn't fit their main band LION'S SHARE.
