Does this mean they're done with gathering more kings?

Funny you should mention that:

"It is with great pleasure that we can announce..."

 

;)

 

Seriously though, I dig the song.

The two tracks I just listened to sound good.  Definitely want to check out the full album when it's released.

 

Which at this rate should be April of 2023... seriously, look at the timeline from the beginning of this thread.

I'm officially disinterested. Too much bullshit, not enough music. Just go away now.

For those of you who haven't given up all hope on this, a fourth single/video "Love Will Stay Alive" should be out during November with the album now scheduled for release in January 2019.

Past the point of caring. All hype, no delivery. Wake me when the album actually shows up. At this rate, who's to say there might not be another delay or seven?

Harsh.

In fairness to the band the announcements of members ended a while ago and they have released 3 to 4 singles like most other bands these days.

Logistically this was probably quite a difficult album to put together given all the personnel involved.

2 or of 3 of the songs so far and been really good.....the Strid sung song was a killer imo and right up there with any NFO song. I'm hoping for at least another song or 2 featuring him on vocals.

Just catching up on this thread now... sounding pretty good. I had no idea it had been so long since this all commenced, but I hope they get this released in January.

'First Mission' out January 2019.

Maybe.


The Album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Nocturnal Rites, Dynazty) at The Panic Room in Skövde, Sweden.

All songs written by hugely talented Victor Olsson except "The Runaway", which was written by Maurice Gibb & Robin Gibb from Bee Gees. The song is a cover of Carolas hit single from 1986. So that's our tribute to the best swedish female singer of all time!
The amazing cover artwork was created by the German artist Markus Vesper Art.

An official video for our next single "Love Will Stay Alive" to be released next week. More details and pre-order info coming soon, stay tuned!

The album is featuring following artists:

*Rick Altzi - Vocals (Masterplan, Herman Frank, At Vance)
*Björn Strid - Vocals (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra)
*Apollo Papathanasio - Vocals (Spiritual Beggars, Firewind)
*Tobias Jansson - Vocals (Saffire)

*Alexander Frisborg - Vocals (Helldog)

Such a random album cover and band logo... looks more like Saga... or something like that..

It's a blatant ripoff of Roger Dean and his work for Yes and Asia like "Union" and "The Ladder".
