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.

I dunno ... you only need three kings to have a (small) gathering.

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)

And at this rate they will have more vocalists than songs. Unless they do a double disc.

    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
    • Burdens of being bi-polar...   Or maybe just a little lit.   Cool band nonetheless. 
    • Yes they were quite good. I personally loved them. Incredibly tight, energetic, played the dickens out of their respective instruments and had what looked like a hell of a time doing so. Hell the set still resonates 25 years later and as I mentioned earlier the Natural Woman inclusion was so random but so cool. I totally dig/dug Kevin's voice, very unique and teh rest of the band was so tight as well, smh. As I ruminate they more and more remind me of another band no one likes and should have been bigger is TPOH (The Pursuit of Happiness). Maybe a little Ruth Ruth too. Another in the ilk of uber talented bands that no one cared about and should have and talk about distinct voices, Chris Kennedy, forget about it and these guys too were a 3 piece, hmmm. Here is an old Letterman clip from around that time:  
    • For you, Darkstone Woah, He Working Class Man !!
    • "The Power to Rock". From the new "Fierce Heart" album. They also do an updated version of "Out For Blood" from their '85 st debut. I love that song.  Another great "comeback" album. I don't think these guys have released anything since that debut. That's 35 years between drinks.        
    • Fuck!, I'm loving this album. Thanks for the heads up Sam.
