Signus Regis – the Slovakian heavy metal band unleashed their third album EXODUS last year. The album is a theme album with guests vocalists like Göran Edman, Daisa Munhoz, Michael Vescera and Lance King. Since I thought the album was great I thought I should hook up with bandleader/bass player Ronnie König in order to get to know a little bite more about the band and their history. We handled issues like EXODUS, the matter of guest vocalists, the line-up and labels. Another topic that was handled was also the status of heavy metal/hardrock in Slovakia. Enjoy.
XsavioR is a new band/project with the well known Swedish vocalist Göran Edman as a front figure. Göran has been involved in several groups/projects and albums throughout the years and this summer saw the release of the debut album by Xsavior as well as the new Brazen Abbot album MY RESURRECTION. Later this year comes another album with Göran behind the mic, that’s Richard Andersson’s new album THE ULTIMATE ANDERSSON COLLECTION. I’m a big fan of Göran and of course I took the opportunity to interview him.
