Swedish melodic metal masters LION?S SHARE have uploaded another batch of photos from last week?s vocal recording sessions for their new album at www.myspace.com/lionsshare - This time the band went to a house in Falun, Sweden (to be able to work closer to singer Patrik Johansson?s home), and set up a mobile studio there. Patrik (also in ASTRAL DOORS) sang on five new songs: "Toxication Rave", "Ring of Stupidity", "Trafficking", "Emotional Coma" and "Temple of Time". This means the vocals now have been recorded for 12 out of the planned 14 songs for the upcoming CD. The demo guitars, bass and drums will be replaced with the actual album takes later this fall/winter. 11 tracks are expected to appear on the CD, with three extra songs set aside to be used as bonus tracks. If everything goes according to plan, the band hope to have the album mixed and ready by January 2007 for a possible May/June release.
As previously reported, former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick has already recorded a guest solo for the song "The Edge of the Razor". The new album will be the group?s fifth, with the first four having been released by Century Media and Massacre Records between 1995 and 2001. During this period, the band toured heavily with such acts as DIO, MANOWAR, MOT?RHEAD, SAXON, NEVERMORE, ICED EARTH, U.D.O. etc.
