LION’S SHARE UNVEIL NEW ALBUM ARTWORK:
January 25, 2009
Swedish melodic heavy metal masters LION’S SHARE has unveiled the cover art for its upcoming sixth full-length album, “Dark Hours”.
LION’S SHARE will release its new album in late March 2009 via Blistering Records. The follow-up to 2007’s “Emotional Coma” was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SYMPHONY X, PARADISE LOST, AMON AMARTH) and features guest appearances by SYMPHONY X guitarist Mike Romeo (guest solo on “Behind The Curtain”), and drummers Conny Pettersson (from Earache Records death metal act ANATA) and Richard Evensand (CHIMAIRA, SOILWORK).
“Dark Hours” track listing:
01. Judas Must Die
02. Phantom Rider
03. Demon In Your Mind
04. Heavy Cross To Bear
05. The Bottomless Pit
06. Full Metal Jacket
07. The Presidio 27
08. Barker Ranch
09. Napalm Nights
10. Space Scam
11. Behind The Curtain
12. King Of All The Kings (bonus track – limited-edition digipak and Japanese version)
The band states: “The new songs are simply awesome and everybody that has heard it thinks it’s our best album to date. The red thread lyric-wise on this album is that all songs are about things that happened in the late Sixties; a decade known for many good things. However, we’re not describing the happy times of the Sixties: We give you the ‘Dark Hours’. Musically, it’s more straight-forward and faster than ever. The songs are filled with energy and great hooks.”
LION’S SHARE’s most recent album, “Emotional Coma”, was released in the U.S. January 29th, 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 ex-MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover.
