Allen/Olzon - Worlds Apart

Recommended Posts

New album 'Worlds Apart' out March 6 on Frontiers.

Inimitable singer Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob) and acclaimed Swedish guitarist, songwriter, and producer Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall) have collaborated successfully on three critically acclaimed albums where Russell dueted with Norwegian singer, Jorn Lande. After a break in their collaboration on said albums, where Timo Tolkki stepped in and oversaw an album, Magnus has returned to the fold, but with an exciting new twist to the formula. This time, Russell and Magnus welcome none other than the amazingly talented Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish, The Dark Element) to the fold as Allen’s vocal partner and offer up an unbelievable new duets album. 

If you love Allen/Lande’s first three albums, but also Delain, Within Temptation, Nightwish, and the like (but with a slightly heavier edge), then this is simply an album you must hear!

Line-up:
Vocals - Russell Allen, Anette Olzon
Guitars, Bass & Keyboards - Magnus Karlsson
Drums - Anders Köllerfors

I just sorta slagged the new Harem Scarem....but this one is fantastic. A huge fan of all Allen/Lande releases and even with Jorn out and Anette Olzon in this is just as good. Fantastic Melodic Metal!

I don't agree about the Harem Scarem (I think it's great) but I do agree about this!! I was also a fan of Allen/Lande releases and this is just as damn good.

But what about the fourth album? It was better than the second and third.

Very much in line with the long line of duet albums Russell Allen has been involved with over the past couple of decades. Sounds good to me with some quality tunes.

mmm. gonna have to pass. This franchise does nothing for me (except the Battle which was pretty good...hasn't aged massively well truth be told)

don't really like Olzens vocal. 

Very theatrical this time round too.

enjoy guys. Just not for me
