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.

“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)

NILS PATRIK JOHANSSON – releases lyric video of solo album title track “Evil Deluxe”…..

 

“Evil Deluxe”, is taken from the album “Evil Deluxe”, which is due for release May 25th.
Nils Patrik Johansson (LION’S SHARE, ASTRAL DOORS, ex-CIVIL WAR), will release his first solo album “Evil Deluxe”, this spring on German label Metalville.
“I have thought about a solo album for ten years, but then CIVIL WAR came into the picture and I used all my ideas for the three albums that we did” Nils Patrik reveals.
“After my departure from them, I felt that I wanted to focus 100% on ASTRAL DOORS and LION’S SHARE. But all of a sudden inspiration came back – and from out of nowhere I had 10 new killer songs. It felt natural to hire my LION’S SHARE band mate, Lars Chriss as producer and guitar player. My son Fredrik Johansson play drums on the record, so finally father and son Johansson will appear on the same album.” Nils Patrik adds.
Other musicians on the album:
Chris Boltendahl (GRAVE DIGGER) – Vocals
Andy Loos (LION’S SHARE, GLORY) – Bass
Fredrik Bergh (BLOODBOUND) – Keyboard
Kay Backlund (LION’S SHARE) – Keyboard
Anuviel (SAECRED SPIRIT) – Keyboard
Marcus Bengts – Bass

LION’S SHARE releases first new song in 8 years.

After a six-year hiatus, Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE has just released a new lyric video, “Another Desire”. This is the group’s first new release since the Dark Hours album in 2009.

“The plan was always to release more LION’S SHARE material. And even though Lars [Chriss, guitar] and I live quite far apart, we have managed to squeeze in songwriting sessions here and there throughout the years,” lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson reveals.

“I’ve been working full time as a producer/mixer for the last six years, and Patrik has released albums and toured with both Civil War and Astral Doors, so it’s not like we’ve been out of the music business, even though LION’S SHARE as a band hasn’t been very public”, Chriss adds.

Both 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.

Well over 20 new LION’S SHARE songs are more or less written. About half of them are partly recorded as well, with original member Andy Loos handling the bass duties on the first batch of tracks. The plan is to release a couple of lyric videos – one by one – a couple of months apart, and to take it from there, depending on the response from fans.
