Legendary Metal Vocalist Explores “A Variety of Musical Landscapes” on Highly Anticipated New LP
Norwegian powerhouse vocalist Jorn Lande‘s (MASTERPLAN, AVANTASIA) JORN will release its long awaited new album Bring Heavy Rock To The Land in North America on June 5 via Frontiers Records. Produced by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Steeler) at Denmark’s Jailhouse Studios, the album delivers 11 tracks of seriously strong heavy music “guaranteed to get your adrenaline going,” with a riveting sound that has solid roots in classic hard rock / heavy metal music, such as Dio, Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Whitesnake.
JORN “Bring Heavy Rock to the Land”
The record’s title track “Bring Heavy Rock to the Land” will be released as a single worldwide on May 14. A video for the song is in the works and will be directed by Thomas Tjader (In Flames). “The title track was a natural choice for the lead track,” JORN explains. “Sometimes a song’s got the magic and you just know it. “Bring Heavy Rock To The Land” is such a song and regardless of how the whole album is evaluated by critics, I feel that this song will live on and become an essential Jorn classic!” The album also contains an invigorating cover of the Christopher Cross classic “Ride Like the Wind“, reworked in electric JORN fashion. “I thought “Ride Like The Wind” would be a good song to do Jorn style,” the vocalist continues. “Saxon also released a version of this song in the 80’s, and the arrangement we made ended up beeing a mix between the original version and Saxon’s. It’s just a fun song to sing and play”.
The track listing for JORN‘s Bring Heavy Rock To The Land is as follows:
In addition to vocalist Jorn Lande, JORN also features Nic Angileri (bass), Willy Bendiksen (drums) and guitarists Jimmy Iversen and Tore Moren.
