WTF? I wonder if this will actually ever get off the ground, and if so, how many members will come and go before they record something? Again, as I said, this is strange.

So how many members are they going for? Just a keyboard guy and they'll be good to go? Or are they just going to keep gathering members until even you and I are part of the band?

Well, they're called Gathering of Kings, Geoffrey, so they're probably not gonna stop until they've gathered them all.

You'd figure anymore than one King and there will be problems. You'd also recon a queen or two and a gaggle of knights would be necessary to round out the table.

How many announcements ago did this whole thing just get really, really stupid?

 

I can just see it; they'll be announcing their 189th band member at the end of 2016 and they won't even have entertained the notion of actually *GASP!* writing a song. Idiotic.

It is with great pleasure that we can announce our eighth king. As one of the vocalists, please welcome Mr. Tobias Jansson!

Tobias Jansson is the singer in one of Swedens most promising hard rock constellations - Saffire. The trademark for this king is his wide range of vocal expressions. He often finds himself wandering between the soft and the agitated , sometimes with a touch of theatricality and a subtle nerve.

Tobias Jansson's Saffire recently released their second studio album "For The Greater Good" that also has been praised in media all over the globe. Furthermore he has found himself in numerous bands and projects over the years (The Law, Silent Scythe, Sugarglider, Evil Masquerade), but it's through the alliance with Saffire that Tobias Jansson truly has found himself his stronghold and nourishing ground to grow even stronger. 2016 will be a year to remember!

Thank you for joining the Gathering Of Kings family, Tobias Jansson.

Gathering Of Kings have now confirmed the following artists:

* Björn Strid - vocals (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra)
* Zinny Zan - vocals (Easy Action, Shotgun Messiah)
* Tobias Jansson - vocals (Saffire, Evil Masquerade)

* Chris Laney - guitars (Randy Piper's Animal, Shotgun)

    • Have to agree....Absolutely killer album!  I've been through it a handful of times now and I swear the more I listen, the more I like it.       I don't know if it'll be my top album but it's definitely right there among my favorites this year. Have picked up their last album too and will be checking that out closer once I can get the new one out of my CD player Not sure how these guys slipped under my radar.  Good stuff.
    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.

      01 Do You Love Me
      04 Picture Of Beauty
      05 Too Little Too Late
      06 Someone Like You
      08 Shame On You
