Just thought I'd share a video clip from my backyard, together with my little crow friend.

MATS OLAUSSON HAS PASSED AWAY

Mats OlaussonI am sad to hear that yet another great musician, colleague and friend has passed away. Mats was found in his hotel room in downtown Ryong, Thailand, and as far as we know nothing criminal has happened. To know that Randy Coven went less than a year ago, and now Mats, is devastating, my thoughts go to his family and all his friends.

NEW YEARS EVE IN KAVARNA, BULGARIA

jorn bulgariaI had a great time in Kavarna, celebrating New Years Eve together with family and friends in "The City of Rock". When we left Norway we didn't expect 15 minus this far south in Europe, and it felt weird watching the weather forecast describe 6-7 pluss, back home.We wore warm clothes, and soon forgot about the cold, as we were treated so good and was exceptionally well taken care of. The Christmas Party we were invited to was great, and joining in on the traditional Bulgarian folk dance was good fun.

ALBUM ABOUT THE DARKEST LEGEND OF THEM ALL - DRACULA - TO BE RELEASED JANUARY 2015

jorntrondur draculiusA demonic and beautiful love story inspired by Bram Stokers Dracula, reflecting the inner shadows of the man and myth.
We have worked on and off, on this epic album, and it took us close to 4 years to complete it. It's not the typical rock opera with a storyteller and long instrumental parts, but more of a dark and melodic rock album with songs of radio potential that take you straight to the point.

MESSAGE FROM JORN

jornmagnusiusJust been recording at Magnus Karlssons studio in Sweden, one of the songs for his new solo album project Free Fall II. We worked intensely for two days, and had a great time. I haven't had time to guest on projects like this the last few years, and it felt good to do something different. His album will feature several well-known singers, and is scheduled for release summer 2015.
