Gathering Of Kings – Discovery

“Damn I hope that Gathering Of Kings will turn into a real band in the future!” That’s how I ended my review of GoK’s brilliant debut album First Mission last year. Apparently the God of Rock answer prayers because that is exactly what this Swedish version of Phenomena has turned into. Fantastic news. My guess is that they turned into a band more or less right after the success they had at Sweden Rock Festival last summer. A killer gig, it was. Only a little more than a year after the release of the debut, GoK is about to release their second outing – this time with a slight change of personnel. Chris Laney (guitar – Pretty Maids), Björn Strid (Night Flight Orchestra, Soilwork – vocals), Jens Westin (Corroded – vocals) and Richard Larsson (keyboards – Night Flight Orchestra) has all bid their farewells. New on the singer spot is instead Jonny Lindqvist (Nocturnal Rites). But just like on the debut, it’s Saffire’s Victor Olsson who provides the music – with a helping lyrical hand from Helldog singer Alexander Frisborg – which indeed bodes well.
