Line up

  • Lars Chriss: guitars
  • Sampo Axelsson: bass
  • Patrik Johansson: vocals
2009 will see Swedish melodic metal masters LION'S SHARE release their new album, “Dark Hours”. A natural follow-up to 2007's “Emotional Coma”, the band builds on their trademark style they have developed. Crushing guitar work, top flight musicianship combined with melodic vocals and a knack for building songs that consume the listener makes this one of 2009's most anticipated. The line-up of the band again features singer Patrik Johansson and bassist Sampo Axelsson alongside founding member Lars Chriss (guitar) plus session drummers Richard Evensand (CHIMAIRA, SOILWORK, THERION) and Conny Pettersson (ANATA). “Dark Hours” also marks the first LION’S SHARE release on their new label, Blistering Records.

Starting with their debut in 1995, LION'S SHARE went on to land a worldwide record contract with Century Media and release “Two”, which was hailed as a melodic metal masterpiece. The CD was promoted by a European tour with metal legends SAXON and a follow-up trek with ICED EARTH and NEVERMORE and more dates with SAXON. In 1998 a tour with U.D.O. and additional club gigs in Sweden took place. With the 1999 album “Fall From Grace”, LION'S SHARE streamlined its sound towards a tighter, heavier sound without losing any of its melodic sensibility. An appearance at the 1999 Sweden Rock Festival with bands like SCORPIONS, DEEP PURPLE and MANOWAR was followed by a Scandinavian tour in 2000 with DIO, MANOWAR and MOTÖRHEAD. The “Entrance” album came out in 2001 on Massacre Records and was supported by a number of headlining shows and yet another appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival. The band returned with 2007's intense “Emotional Coma”. 2008's “The Magic Circle Festival” DVD out of the MANOWAR camp features 2 live tracks by LION'S SHARE.

As with their previous release, “Dark Hours” also features some splendid guest players, including guitarist Michael Romeo (Symphony X) and drummer Conny Pettersson (Anata).
