Frontiers Music Srl is delighted to announce the release of Jorn’s brand new studio album, entitled “Life on Death Road,” this coming June 2nd, 2017.
“Life On Death Road” took several months of hard work for the songwriting vision to come together. The result is a record that is deep, strong, full of groove and powerful with anthemic songs aplenty.
Jorn says, “It’s easily one of the best albums I’ve ever recorded. This was all about putting the right people together for the right result, and about taking the necessary time to work more thoroughly and in depth with the material we chose for the album. The older I get, the more I feel it is necessary to listen to my heart and look for that genuine and honest feeling that made me take interest in music in the first place. Back in the 70’s and early 80’s when I grew up, people and music were more free and so the presence of feeling and soul came more naturally and was expected from an artist or a band.
“This is the energy and craftmanship we’ve been looking for, but still keeping a pulse on the modern times we live in. ‘Life On Death Road’ is an original album that is pretty much summing up the last 40-50 years of rock and metal and has become a hybrid modern heavy rock album without losing those tasty elements of a good aged wine. Regardless, we’re all products of our time, and the feeling, soul and symbioses we’ve achieved for this album is a rarity in today’s music world, so in that sense this album is a true old school sailors’ ‘tall ship adventure.’ From start to finish it took us nearly three years to finalize and I’m really proud to say that this album is the proof that classic albums can still be made.”
The album also marks the debut of a new lineup around the Norwegian singer. On bass is Mat Sinner (Primal Fear, Sinner, Kiske/Somerville). On keyboards and production is Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints), who already joined Jorn for the recording of his last covers album, “Heavy Rock Radio. Francesco Iovino (Primal Fear) is on drums and Alex Beyrodt (Primal Fear, Voodoo Circle) handles guitar.
