Considered one of the greatest legends in rock, and by many as the best male rock singer of the millennium, Jorn Lande never seems to stop producing music, and is back with yet another slab of classic 1st division heavy rock. The brand new album “Traveller” is definitely a suitable title to fit this gifted and creative viking’s extreme productivity.
With a statement on the official website, the Italian heavy/power metallers Overtures published the artwork and many news concerning the new upcoming album “Entering the Maze”.
"At first, the album will be released on May 31st by Greek label Sleaszy Rider. SR already released our previous album "Rebirth" and thanks to the wonderful relationship between the band and the label, the collaboration between the two parts is very solid".
This is a statement about it from lead vocalist Michele Guaitoli:
The Pineapple Thief frontman, Bruce Soord and Jonas Renkse from Katatonia have announced a June 4, 2013 release date for “Wisdom of Crowds”, their new project, set to drop this spring on Kscope.
Originally written with Renkse’s voice in mind, Soord sought out the acclaimed Katatonia vocalist to complete the compositions and release the music to the masses. Despite the rigorous schedules of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia, the two musicians were eventually able to connect and the rest is rock n’ roll history.

“Civilization Under Threat” from Bay Area Thrash Metallers Potential Threat SF will be released June 18th through Old School Metal Records.
The album gives a nod to the old school by combining aggressive, commanding vocals with dual guitars and a thundering bottom end.
