I think I've mentioned these guys a few times, but haven't really heard a lot about them anywhere... so I thought I'd give you all a quick heads-up. An online friend turned me on to these guys a couple of months ago, so I picked up their most recent release "Iron Will"... and I must say I was impressed as hell.

The singer, Janne "JB" Christoffersson... has a very powerful voice, sounding a bit like Tony Martin, Ray Gillen and JLT... depending on the song. Incidentally, he also is the current lead singer of Spiritual Beggars (another band I've yet to check out).

The album is fairly straight-forward, crunchy heavy metal, but done extremely well. I think fans of Sabbath's later stuff would like it... and Jorn's faithful would LOVE this one! I think power metal fans will also get into this one. It's big and beefy... with no filler!

I have yet to check out their first three records... unfortunately, they all seem to be import-only (but this one is reasonably-priced)... but this one has been the find of 2008 for me. :tup

Top notch! Check it out... :B

No problem, Chris. :B

Let me know if you have any trouble tracking it down. :wink:

I think just about everyone here would love this one... I just hope a few more folks notice this.
