 “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.”

LION'S SHARE Recalls Three Original Members For New EP

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
Swedish heavy metal band LION'S SHARE is making a new five track EP available on streaming services and digital service providers today, September 28.
"EP" is the follow-up to 2009’s "Dark Hours" album and includes a re-recording of the LION’S SHARE classic “Sins Of A Father” - the opening track on the band’s seelf- titled debut from 1995.    

"It was a blast to revisit the song together with Andy Loos (bass) and Kay Backlund (keyboards) who also did the original version with me back in the day. Sure brought back a lot of good and crazy memories.” LION'S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says.

The EP also features “Another Desire” and “The Lion’s Trial”, both previously only available as lyric videos.

LION'S SHARE lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson says: “Lars and I have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed. We of course have Andy and Kay, but also my son Nils Fredrik Johansson helping out on drums. Actually it’s more or less the same team that did my solo album “Evil Deluxe” earlier this year when I think about it.”

“As a special bonus we included two Black Sabbath covers, live from the “Sweden Rock - Ronnie James Dio Tribute” in October 2010, where LION’S SHARE was the house band if you will with various guests coming up to do a song or two with us. It’s taken directly from the eight channel drum monitor mixer, so it’s 100% live without any chance to repair or edit. We think it captures the raw energy of the band in front of an absolutely brilliant crowd that night.” adds Lars.

LION’S SHARE “EP” tracklist:
1. Another Desire
2. The Lion’s Trial
3. Sins Of A Father (2018 re-recording)
4. The Mob Rules (Live from the Sweden Rock - Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)
5. Heaven And Hell (Live from the Sweden Rock - Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)

LION’S SHARE Releases First New Song In 8 Years

 
After a six-year hiatus, Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE has just released a new lyric video, "Another Desire".  This is the group's first new release since the Dark Hours album in 2009.

“The plan was always to release more LION’S SHARE material. And even though Lars [Chriss, guitar] and I live quite far apart, we have managed to squeeze in songwriting sessions here and there throughout the years,” lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson reveals.

“I’ve been working full time as a producer/mixer for the last six years, and Patrik has released albums and toured with both Civil War and Astral Doors, so it’s not like we’ve been out of the music business, even though LION’S SHARE as a band hasn’t been very public”, Chriss adds.

Both remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.

Well over 20 new LION’S SHARE songs are more or less written. About half of them are partly recorded as well, with original member Andy Loos handling the bass duties on the first batch of tracks. The plan is to release a couple of lyric videos - one by one - a couple of months apart, and to take iit from there, depending on the response from fans.
