Gathering Of Kings - Discovery


Recommended Posts



From FB:

"Discovery" is the title of our next album set for release early 2020! The first single "Heaven On The Run" will be released the 5th of June! It will be released as a strictly limited 7' vinyl single (Blue/Transparent). 200 ex will be sold at Sweden Rock Festival June 5-8 and the remaining 100 ex can now be pre-ordered via Ginza.se.

This is a melodic hard rock gem that completely sticks to your head! And once again it's a outstanding production, by Thomas Plec Johansson at The Panic Room, Skövde. Warm yet modern and always powerful. Executive producers: Ron Dahlgren, Nina Dahlgren & Victor Olsson. Drums recorded at Nordic Sound Lab by Thomas Plec Johansson, Bengan Andersson and Victor Olsson. Artwork: Markus Vesper.

Side A: "Heaven On The Run", written by Victor Olsson, is a brand new song and the first taste from the upcoming album "Discovery" which will be released early next year.

Rick Altzi - (Lead Vocals)
Victor Olsson - (Guitar, Keyboards & Backing Vocals)
Nalle Påhlsson - (Bass)
Efraim Larsson - (Drums)
Tobias Jansson - (Backing Vocals)

Side B: "Battle Cry", included as a bonus track on the CD edition of "First Mission". Now the song will be released on vinyl for the very first time!

'Heaven On The Run' and a cover of Carola's 'The Runaway'.



This one sounds exactly like a song from Night Flight Orchestra.  That's a good thing.

"Moonlight" is the second single from the upcoming Gathering Of Kings album "Discovery" which will be released in the first quarter of 2020.

This is the first song you hear Jonny Lindkvist (Nocturnal Rites) in, as a GOK singer.

The song is written by Victor Olsson, lyrics by Victor and Alexander Frisborg. Produced, mixed and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson (The Panic Room). Vocals recorded by Ronnie Björnström (Enhanced Audio Productions). Drums recorded by Bengan Andersson and Victor Olsson (Nordic Sound Lab).

Executive Producers are the founders and supervisors, Ron Dahlgren and Nina Dahlgren along with songwriter/guitarist/keyboardist Victor Olsson.

Logo & Artwork by: Markus Vesper at Markus Vesper Art.

Jonny Lindkvist (Nocturnal Rites) - Vocals
Victor Olsson (Saffire) - Guitars/Keyboards/Backing Vocals
Nalle Påhlsson (Treat, Easy Action, Therion) - Bass
Efraim Larsson (Rydell & Quick, Streamline) - Drums
Apollo Papathanasio (Spiritual Beggars) - Backing Vocals
Alexander Frisborg (Helldog) - Backing Vocals

The upcoming album will also include Rick Altzi (Masterplan), Tobias Jansson (Saffire) and Jonas Källsbäck (The Night Flight Orchestra) among others.

GATHERING OF KINGS began work on the new album a couple of months after the debut album was released and continues their creative relationship with producer Thomas "Plec" Johansson (SOILWORK, NOCTURNAL RITES, DYNAZTY, THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).

The debut album "First Mission", was released in January 2019 via RN Records. The album reached #2 on the Swedish charts for physical album sales and #1 on the Hard Rock chart and #1 on the Vinyl chart.

The band is supervised by the founders Ron and Nina Dahlgren, bringing together top musicians from the current hard rock scene in Sweden. Victor Olsson is the main songwriter, with Alexander Frisborg co-writing lyrics on some of them.

The idea was to create something like Tom Galley's Phenomena or even Tobias Sammet's Avantasia, with multiple vocalists and instrumentalists.

Don't mind that at all, if you liked the debut disc this one sounds like a steady progression...if you didn't like it chances are you won't like this :)

Really looking forward to this. I saw them live this summer and I have to say it was amazing. 

First Mission is a top notch album and Heaven on the Run and Moonlight promise that the next one will be a belter as well.

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
