The Swedish heavy metal commando LANCER will release their new, fourth studio album “Tempest” on August 11th. The album was recorded by the band and Anders Backelin (LORD BELIAL a.o.) at “Armageddon Recordings Studio”, who also mixed and mastered the work, together with guitarist Per-Owe Solvelius, the main producer of the new studio epic. “It’s very heavy, it’s dramatic and it’s a new beginning for Lancer,” reveals their new singer Jack L. Stroem.
LANCER conquered the metal scene in spring 2012 with their debut EP “Purple Sky”, followed by their self-titled debut album “Lancer” (2013) and its follow-up “Second Storm” (2015). They offered melodic metal in the long tradition of outstanding Swedish metal bands like HAMMERFALL, MORGANA LEFAY, DREAM EVIL, TAD MOROSE and many others. The album received rave reviews from the metal press around the world, who called the band “future successors on the throne of melodic metal”. In autumn 2015, LANCER joined German power metal band FREEDOM CALL on tour as a support act and received a fantastic reception from the fans! Their third longplayer “Mastery” was mastered by Miro Rodenberg (AVANTASIA, RHAPSODY, KAMELOT) at “Gate Studio” and released in 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Afterwards, LANCER went to Japan for the first time and played a sold-out show at the “Astro Hall” in Tokyo, before touring Europe as support for HAMMEFALL and GLORYHAMMER. Back home, LANCER made their debut at the renowned “Sabaton Open Air” festival before singer Isak Stenvall and drummer Sebastian Pedernera announced their departure from the band. After recruiting singer Jack L. Stroem (VANDOR) and drummer Pontus Andrén, LANCER’s line-up is now complete again and stronger than ever!
“Tempest” is a power-packed metal dose – with the “Made in Sweden” seal of quality, of course!
