Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of JORN’s brand new studio album entitled “Spirit Black” on June 5th in Europe and July 14th in the USA.
Considered by many fans and critics as one of the finest voices in Hard Rock to arrive on the scene at the end of the 20th century, JORN is now ready to unleash upon the world yet another studio album entitled “Spirit Black”. “I have carried some of these ideas with me for quite some time” tells Lande, “Willy, Jimmy, Sid and myself have known each other since the 80’s, and some of the song ideas and demos from back then have now seen the light of day, and become an essential part of Spirit Black. When we were younger we usually never cared about what we did yesterday, only about the future, but the past can sometimes reveal hidden treasures and I discovered great potential in some of these song-ideas”. The result: “Spirit Black” is another slab of classic Hard Rock with 80’s Metal elements which will definitely please all those who loved his recent “Lonely Are The Brave”, released in June 2008.
A winning formula should not change, so Jorn has worked again with Tommy Hansen at Jailhouse Studios in Denmark ensuring the right edge to the rich guitar and vocal sound that is now trademark to all Jorn releases. “The fans can expect a solid and defined record that will shake the classic metal world and hammer the future Jorn legacy in stone” says Jorn. “The sound of the album is like a crossover between “The Duke” and “Lonely Are The Brave”, and I feel that some of the songs on “Spirit Black” have the potential to become essential Hard Rock classics that will stand the test of time”.
orn Lande’s strong and diverse voice and solid songwriting skills have now become legendary in the Hard Rock world. In a career spanning over 30 albums releases and as frontman for Millennium, Ark and Masterplan, Jorn was recently featured on spectacular projects such as Tobias Sammet’s “Avantasia”, along with stars like Alice Cooper and Eric Singer (KISS), Rudolph Schenker (Scorpions), Bob Catley (Magnum) and in Arjen Lucassen’s recent concept album “Ayreon”.
“The musical style and direction is now more defined and less experimental. I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel anymore, I just want to write good quality Hard Rock songs that people can relate to and identify with”, continues the Norwegian Viking, “As we entered into the new millennium, I realized and accepted that my strength as a singer was more classic rock oriented. If you buy a Jorn album today, you know what you will get. True classic Hard Rock music”.
Jorn is getting ready to tour the world at the end of summer 09 with his band formed by Jgor Gianola and Tore Moren on guitars, Nic Angileri on bass and Willy Bendiksen on drums.
“Spirit Black” final track listing includes:
Spirit Black, Below, Road of the Cross, The Last Revolution, City Inbetweeen, Rock And Roll Angel, Burn Your Flame, World Gone Mad, I Walk Alone, The Sun Goes Down (bonus track exclusively included in the first limited edition pressing in digipak)
And, as a perfect complement to the new release, Frontiers will finally give a domestic release in the USA to the JORN DVD “Live in America” on July14th, so far only available via import!

If you didn’t catch Violent Divine’s awesome debut disc you missed one of the better releases of 2006. I am happy to say “In Harm’s Way” carries on where the debut record left off. Much like the first disc, this CD has a bunch of songs that could be easily be radio singles.
If you aren’t completely hooked after hearing “Blackheart”, “Love is Divine”, “Happy Ever Afterlife” or “Vampire Empire” (my current favorites), there are plenty of other cool tunes on this disc to get you rocking. Violent Divine have mastered their sound which blends the big hooks of 80’s metal, and the modern guitar tones of today’s hard rock acts. With a sound this cool, Violent Divine are easily one of the best new bands on the scene today. With a little luck, this disc will bring Violent Divine a great deal of success.
If you like your rock hard and heavy, check out “In Harm’s Way”. If you are a fan of bands like Hard Core Superstar, and Skid Row, you have to check these guys out. I am enjoying this CD, and I think you will too.
