Lisa Skinner – Vocals
Constantine Kanakis – Guitars
Paul Skinner – Drums
Topher O’Meagher – Bass (ex Gehitka)
Tom Maclean – Bass, Orchestral Backing

LION’S SHARE – Releases new single and lyric video “Aim Higher”.

PRESS RELEASE:

Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE has made a new song available on streaming services and digital service providers.

“In these strange days of Covid-19, we feel the time is right to give you a song with a positive touch. This is a song about you deciding your own destiny and that you can achieve whatever you want if you never give up, never take shit and believe in yourself,” says LION’S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson.



In late 2018, LION’S SHARE released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog – remastered with new artwork – on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The band have since released a few more digital singles, some of which will and some of which won’t end up on the forthcoming full-length album.

LION’S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says: “We had big plans for 2020, with a new album and everything. We had just done our first couple of live shows in many years this past March in Germany when the Covid-19 put stop to it all.” 

Both Johansson and Chriss remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.

The LION’S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISSMegadethKing DiamondHammerFallSymphony XChimairaTherionYngwie Malmsteen bandCandlemass, etc.  Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (Arch EnemyOpethSymphony XAmon Amarth) – Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (RoxetteEuropeGlenn Hughes etc).

LION’S SHARE band have toured with bands like MotörheadManowarDIOSaxonIced EarthNevermoreU.D.O. (ex-Accept), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and have played many of the major rock and metal festivals.

DIVINER is a heavy/power metal band from Greece founded by long-time friends and music partners Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos (guitar) in the summer of 2011. The two of them also formed the well known Greek heavy/power metallers InnerWish back in 1995 playing in their debut album “Waiting for the Dawn” (1998) but after this release they had a long break of different musical quests.

Their new vision was to proudly express themselves by creating and playing something powerful, intense, deep, heavy, dark, melodic and inspired that at the same time would sound up to date. All this without losing the elements that reflect the essence of pure and timeless magic of metal music.

They were joined in the band by George Maroulees (guitar), Herc Booze (bass) and Fragiskos Samoilis (drums) and a deal was inked with the Swedish label Ulterium Records.
The debut album “Fallen Empires” was released in November 2015 and received very good reviews and feedback from around the world. After the release of the album the band played many shows and big festivals in Greece and also in Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland, and became known for being a great and energetic live band gaining a strong following.

Thimios Krikos left the band in 2017 due to a heavy and conflicting schedule and was replaced by Kostas Fitos.

Diviner entered Devasoundz Studios in Athens with producer Fotis Benardo in summer 2018 to record their second album “Realms of Time”. This time they decided to expand their music horizons, exploring more territories, adding new elements in terms of lyrics, melodies, riffs and atmosphere, making their songwriting more interesting and better. The band worked really hard on coming up with the best compositions, arrangements and production as possible for the ten songs they set out to record.

The final result show improvements on every level since the band’s debut album and “Realms of Time” won’t leave fans of heavy and power metal disappointed. The album is heavy, melodic and epic and it’s full of energy, power and emotion. Follow Diviner into the Realms of Time!

Diviner line-up:
Yiannis Papanikolaou – Vocals
George Maroulees – Guitar
Kostas Fitos – Guitar
Herc Booze – Bass
Fragiskos Samoilis – Drums

LION’S SHARE – 3/5 of debut album lineup reunites on new EP….

Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE is making a new five track EP available on streaming services and digital service providers today, September 28.
“EP” is the follow-up to 2009’s “Dark Hours” album and includes a re-recording of the LION’S SHARE classic “Sins Of A Father” – the opening track on the band’s self- titled debut from 1995.

unnamed (29)

“It was a blast to revisit the song together with Andy Loos (bass) and Kay Backlund (keyboards) who also did the original version with me back in the day. Sure brought back a lot of good and crazy memories.” LION’S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says.

The EP also features “Another Desire” and “The Lion’s Trial”, both previously only available as lyric videos.

LION’S SHARE lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson says: “Lars and I have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed. We of course have Andy and Kay, but also my son Nils Fredrik Johansson helping out on drums. Actually it’s more or less the same team that did my solo album “Evil Deluxe” earlier this year when I think about it.”

“As a special bonus we included two Black Sabbath covers, live from the “Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute” in October 2010, where LION’S SHARE was the house band if you will with various guests coming up to do a song or two with us. It’s taken directly from the eight channel drum monitor mixer, so it’s 100% live without any chance to repair or edit. We think it captures the raw energy of the band in front of an absolutely brilliant crowd that night.” adds Lars.

LION’S SHARE “EP” tracklist:
1. Another Desire
2. The Lion’s Trial
3. Sins Of A Father (2018 re-recording)
4. The Mob Rules (Live from the Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)
5. Heaven And Hell (Live from the Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)
