This was released in 2021. Only in digital form apparently.
Sounds good.
 
Press release:
 
BLUE MOUNTAIN is the new Swedish melodic rock / AOR collaboration between vocalist Hans Birger Andersson (Fatal Smile, Token, et all) and members of the band Angeline which already surprised us with their debut EP ‘One’ some months ago.We were eager to listen more and hoping they continue as a band and the guys did it: ”Karma Alarm” is the full length debut album of BLUE MOUNTAIN, a terrific collection of classic Scandinavian melodic hard rock plenty of hooks and harmonies, wrapped by a pristine production.All songs were composed by Anderson and Angeline’s guitarist Joachim Nilsson, obviously embedded with the feeling from their own bands, but the aim was to obtain the sound from the classic Scandinavian era from the genre too.Mission accomplished: this is bright, fresh 10-track set of melodic, timeless rocking tunes. Andersson is a terrific vocalist and here performs with passion the musical style he loves. There’s a sense of joyfulness all over the recording, and it’s palpable the guys really enjoyed working on this project.We find catchy, groovy melodic rockers with a bouncy rhythm, soaring vocals, strong guitar work – Dan Stomberg from cult Swedish melodic rockers Madison drops a guest guitar solo too – and at places embellished with smooth AORish touches.There’s a rare chemistry between these seasoned musicians, and “Karma Alarm” is just another proof that timeless quality rock music is alive and kickin’.

Hans Birger Andersson (Fatal Smile, Token) – vocals

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
