Swedish melodic metal masters LION’S SHARE have been confirmed for next year’s installment of the Karmøygeddon metal festival, set to take place May 6-7, 2011 in Haugesund, Norway. Other acts include AMORPHIS, GRAVE DIGGER, CRIMSON GLORY, THE HAUNTED etc.
LION’S SHARE recently performed four BLACK SABBATH and DIO classics — “Mob Rules”, “Heaven And Hell”, “Stand Up And Shout” and “We Rock” — with legendary drummer Vinny Appice (HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, DIO), during his Scandinavian Drum Day appearance in Stockholm, Sweden.
Check out video footage of the “Heaven And Hell” soundcheck performance:
LION’S SHARE’s critically acclaimed “Dark Hours” album was released in 2009. The follow-up to 2007’s “Emotional Coma” was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SYMPHONY X, PARADISE LOST, AMON AMARTH) and features a guest appearance by SYMPHONY X guitarist Mike Romeo (solo on “Behind The Curtain”).
The DIO Tribute at the Sweden Rock Cruise was an incredible night. LION’S SHARE really wanna thank all the guests for their great performances, Sweden Rock Magazine and of course the audience: what a great crowd!
Finally we want to thank Ronnie James Dio for the awesome music he gave us and pay our respects to Wendy Dio and the rest of his family.
Here’s the setlist with some comments:
1. “E5150”, (intro)
2. “Mob Rules”, (Lion’s Share)
3. “Stand Up And Shout”, (Lion’s Share)
4. “Holy Diver”, (Lion’s Share)
Comment: the response from the crowd really blew us away. Epic!
….and here we start picking up the different guests to perform with us:
5. “Egypt (The Chains Are On)”, together with Johan Edlund from Tiamat on vocals.
Comment: Johan really did his own version of this great song and it was brilliant.
6. “Man On The Silver Mountain”, together with Johan Hegg on vocals.
Comment: A smoking performance from Mr. Amon Amarth himself. A classic!
7. “Don’t Talk To Strangers”, together with Charles Rytkönen on vocals.
Comment: Awesome performance from the front man of Morgana Lefay. Thumbs up:)
Here we had a little changeover and Martin Forssman from Sweden Rock Magazine entered the stage and reminded the audience to support the “Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund”.
8. “One Night In The City”, performed by Gothenburg Allstars: Björn Gelotte (In Flames) – Guitar, Peter Iwers (In Flames) – Bass, Jocke Berg (Hardcore Superstar) – Vocals, Magnus “Adde” Andreasson (Hardcore Superstar) – Drums, Rikard Zander (Evergrey) – Keyboards
9. “Rock’n’roll Children”, (Gothenburg Allstars)
10. “Stargazer”, (Gothenburg Allstars)
Comment: These guys delivered a classy show. Quality and passion.
Another little changeover and Lion’s Share entered the stage again.
11. “Children Of The Sea”, together with Messiah Marcolin (ex-Candlemass) on vocals and Mike Wead from King Diamond on lead guitar.
12. “Sign Of The Southern Cross”, together with Messiah and Mike.
Comment: Superior performances from Mike and Messiah. Felt great to see Messiah back where he belongs: on stage. One of the best frontmen of all times!
13. “Tarot Woman”, together with Jens Johansson (ex-DIO, Yngwie, Stratovarius) on keyboards and Mats Levén (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Treat, Therion, At Vance) on vocals.
Comment: Two of Sweden’s most talented musicians ever kicked ass in this Rainbow classic. Mats sang like a God!
14. “Rainbow In The Dark”, Lion’s Share singer Patrik took the stage again and Jens stayed to play this DIO hit song like he did so many times with the original.
15. “Heaven And Hell”, (Lion’s Share)
Comment: This song is probably the reason to why Patrik became a singer. And the audience….WOW!
Comment: Time for the great final; all artists above together on stage to perform DIO’s Live Aid-song “Stars”. Special guests Jim Jidhed from Alien and Janne “JB” Christoffersson from Grand Magus. We had no chance to rehearse this song, so it turned out to be pretty much a jam session. Chaotic….but fun:)

Interviewed by Alan Gilkeson
Since the release of DARK HOURS earlier this year, there’s been a slow and steady build up for Lion’s Share around the world. Recently inking a distribution deal in Russia and their video for ‘Judas Must Die’ appearing on ‘The Headbangers Ball’, the Swedish trio seem poised to bring their metal to the masses as word of their unique brand of US influenced Power Metal spreads across the world. Recently, founder and guitarist Lars Chriss answered some questions for Metal Rules.

Wow! This is the seventh time that the Finnish Metal-Rules squad made an invasion to the mighty Swedenrock festival. Almost 70 bands descended upon the southern area of Sweden for a festival that turned out to be an utter blast from the beginning to the end! The bill of Swedenrock festival 2007 covers a wide range of metal styles and even classic rock stuff such as Kreator to Black Oak Arkansas and everything between. Therefore, there was at least something for everyone who attended the festival. As usual, the whole festival was once again sold out with around 30,000 people at the area every day. The Swedenrock festival has always had tremendous luck with the weather every year. Once again the gods of weather had given their blessing for this rocking metallic heaven on the earth with an extreme hot and sunny weekend that burned red the skin of several festival goers.
As written in the first sentence, this is already the seventh time that the Swedenrock festival has been featured in the site of Metal-Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give an in-depth article of several bands performing at Swedenrock. However we are not able to cover every band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading moment… Enjoy !!!
