Lion Music Press Release

January 24th 2005 Releases

WINTERLONG - Winterlong

Sweden’s Power Metal kings Winterlong are back with their third hard striking album, simply titled “Winterlong”.  Heavier and more aggressive than ever Winterlong are now ready for bigger things. Guitar whiz Thorbjorn Englund and classy vocalist Mikael Holm are joined by the Italian “God of the keyboards” Mistheria for this mighty release.



Valensia sold over 1 million copies of his debut album in 1994 and he is also the artist who has produced the most expensive video ever in the Netherlands. His new project Metal Majesty is heavier than anyth! ing he has done in the past but it’s also a big nod to some of his influences and as usually there is quite a bit on humour in his music. After the highly acclaimed 2004 debut album “This is Not a Drill”, Metal Majesty is back with a well worthy follow up “2005”. The trademarks – incredible vocals, the backing vocals alone are unearthly, fantastic melodies and great songs are all here. A true masterpiece!


ANAND – A Man’s Mind

After the success of last years “Joy 4 Ever”, Dutch guitar ace Anand Mahangoe sees his hard-to-find debut album “A Man’s Mind” get a re-release via Lion Music.  The album contains an updated sound and bonus tracks which are sure to appeal to fans of classic Joe Satriani and Steve Vai - a worthy collection to any guitar fans collection.
