|Biography : Lion's Share|
|Starting with their debut in 1995, LION'S SHARE went on to land a worldwide record contract with Century Media and release âTwoâ, which was hailed as a melodic metal masterpiece. The CD was promoted by a European tour with metal legends SAXON and a follow-up trek with ICED EARTH and NEVERMORE and more dates with SAXON. In 1998 a tour with U.D.O. and additional club gigs in Sweden took place. With the 1999 album âFall From Graceâ, LION'S SHARE streamlined its sound towards a tighter, heavier sound without losing any of its melodic sensibility. An appearance at the 1999 Sweden Rock Festival with bands like SCORPIONS, DEEP PURPLE and MANOWAR was followed by a Scandinavian tour in 2000 with DIO, MANOWAR and MOTÃRHEAD. The âEntranceâ album came out in 2001 on Massacre Records and was supported by a number of headlining shows and yet another appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival. The band returned with 2007's intense âEmotional Comaâ. 2008's âThe Magic Circle Festivalâ DVD out of the MANOWAR camp features 2 live tracks by LION'S SHARE.
LION'S SHARE âDark Hoursâ, is a natural follow-up to 2007's âEmotional Comaâ, the band builds on their trademark style they have developed. Crushing guitar work, top flight musicianship combined with melodic vocals and a knack for building songs that consume the listener. As with their previous release, âDark Hoursâ also features some splendid guest players, including guitarist Michael Romeo (Symphony X). âDark Hoursâ was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Symphony X, Paradise Lost, Amon Amarth) at Fascination Street.
