Allen/Olzon – Worlds Apart

Magnus Karlsson is back for another ride of melodic Metal. We all know the guy from Free Fall, Starbreaker, The Ferrymen and his day-job in Primal Fear, to mention but a few. We also know him from Allen/Lande where he (and Frontiers Records, to be honest) gathered singers Jorn Lande (Masterplan, Millenium, Ayreon, Avantasia) and Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, Star One, Avantasia, Ayreon) for a collaboration. The first album The Battle (2005) was brilliant and is today looked upon as a more or less a classic. The second, The Revenge (2007) was a big let-down but he/they took their revenge (sic!) with the third outing The Showdown (2010), not as good as the debut but still a damn good record. The fourth album The Great Divide (2014) was also good but that one was written by Timo Tolkki (Startovarious) and Lande (lyrics only).
