LION'S SHARE Releases New Single and Lyric Video ‘Pentagram’

Swedish heavy metal band LION'S SHARE has made a new song available on on streaming services and digital service providers today, October 15th.

Lyric video for “Pentagram” -

 “The new single “Pentagram” is based on a true story about someone I know. All of a sudden he decided that his Christian name was shit. The person in question changed his name and got it approved by the authorities. The reason of the name change was due to the fact that he late in his life became a Satanist.

LION’S SHARE of course has nothing to do with religion or Satan what so ever, but this true story is so strange and hilarious that we had to write a song about it. It will be in the live set at the upcoming spring gigs as well” says LION'S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson.

In late 2018 LION'S SHARE released a new five track EP, plus its complete catalog - remastered with new artwork on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The LION’S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISS, Megadeth, King Diamond, HammerFall, Wolf, Symphony X, Chimaira, Therion, YngwieMalmsteen, Candlemass, etc.
Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (Arch Enemy, Opeth, Symphony X, Amon Amarth) - Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (Roxette, Europe, Glenn Hughes, Electric Boys etc).

LION'S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says:  “We have all songs written for the next LION’S SHARE album and we’re almost done with the recordings. We have also started booking festivals and shows for 2020. The first two confirmed dates are in Germany on March 6 and 7.”

HER CHARIOT AWAITS Debut Album Due in 2020

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of Her Chariot Awaits, a new band project featuring the artistic union between the awesome American guitarist and producer Mike Orlando(Adrenaline Mob) and highly regarded ex-Sirenia singer Ailyn on lead vocals. The band is currently wrapping up their debut album for release in early 2020. 
This exciting new musical alliance came about through the vision of Frontiers, which put the two artists - each eager to create a new and exciting musical project - in touch with one another. The pair gelled very well, as listeners will be able to hear upon the album's release. Ailyn, especially, is excited to be able to explore new and very muscular, but still melodic, musical landscapes.
The resulting album, which will see the light of day in the first part of 2020, offers up songs that will excite all lovers of technical, aggressive and extremely catchy heavy metal music. Melting the well defined metal approach of Adrenaline Mob with more melodic hooks, Her Chariot Awaits showcases the incredible vocal talents of Ailyn. Here, she moves in a heavier and more straight ahead territory compared to her previous band, Sirenia.
Ailyn says, “After a two year break from the scene, I am pleased to announce my new collaboration with Mike Orlando on Her Chariot Awaits. I’m very honoured and thankful to be part of it. I’m looking forward for everyone to learn about this new adventure, which allowed me to experiment and explore a new side on my singing, working together with a great musician. Her Chariot Awaits is a new step forward on my music career and I can’t wait to share the beginning of this journey with all of you."
Mike Orlando says, “It was a pleasure to write and perform an album with a singer like Ailyn with music that is geared more towards the commercial side of rock. Ailyn has a beautiful voice and was great to work with in and out of the studio, as was as Jeff Thal on drums! I'm very happy with how the album is coming out. It's a great collection of hard hitting yet melodic commercial rock tracks, which I hope you all enjoy.”
The resulting album is going to leave people breathless and marks an amazing union of two great artists who still have a lot to prove - stay tuned!

EDDIE VAN HALEN Seeks Cancer Treatment in Europe

Widespread reports this week on the health of EDDIE VAN HALEN.
Rumours have been gathering in recent weeks and the damn finally broke when TMZ reported that the legendary guitarist has been traveling back and forth to Germany for throat cancer treatment.
There has been no official response from the VAN HALEN camp, but I can confirm that the information posted is accurate.  Eddie was diagnosed with throat cancer some time back now and has been travelling to Europe for at least the last 12-18 months seeking the best and most up to date treatments available.
I was told the treatments have helped and he's doing better currently. That is up to date info.
What I can add is confirmation that select VAN HALEN tour dates being planning were scuttled earlier this year when Eddie pulled the plug to concentrate on his health.
We wish Eddie all the very best with his treatment and recovery.
