Metal Meets Gospel At Special Swedish Concert

LION'S SHARE bassist Sampo Axelsson (bass; ex-GLENN HUGHES, CRAWLEY) will play bass with the Swedish choir Immanuel Gospel Choir at a special concert dubbed "Gospel on the Rocks" at Mondo in Stockholm on Saturday, November 5. The choir and the band will perform songs by OZZY OSBOURNE, DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW and others. The band's lineup will include:

Lars Pollack (GLENN HUGHES, BRAZEN ABBOT) - Hammond Organ
Sampo Axelsson (LION'S SHARE, ex-GLENN HUGHES) – Bass
Peter Östros (INSANIA) – Guitar
Dimitri Keiski (INSANIA) - Keyboards and Vocals
Jens Stenbro - Drums

LION'S SHARE recently announced the addition of singer Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS) to the group's ranks. Johansson and the rest of the current LION'S SHARE lineup — which includes Axelsson and mainman Lars Chriss — are currently writing material for a fifth album to be released sometime during 2006. The songs written so far are being described as "heavier and more straight-ahead with tons of energy and attitude."
