HAMMERFALL Guitarist To Guest On New JADED HEART Album

December 12, 2008

Guitarist Pontus Norgren (HAMMERFALL, ex-THE POODLES, TALISMAN, GREAT KING RAT) will make a guest appearance on the new album from German melodic hard rock masters JADED HEART. Pontus has also written a song for the follow-up to 2007's "Sinister Mind", which is being recorded with producer Chris Lausmann (RAILWAY, AFFAIR, FRONTLINE, BONFIRE) for a tentative late spring/early summer release. According to drummer Axel Kruse, "There will be 11-12 songs on the new record. The style is perfectly in line with what we have done on 'Sinister', but… just better!"

"Sinister Mind" was released in the U.S. on February 12 via Locomotive Records. According to a press release, "the sound on the album is definitely heavier and more in your face, still keeping intact the elements that has created the recognizable and well-known JADED HEART sound. Production was handled by some of the most [in-demand] guys in the German hard rock scene: Michael Voss (MAD MAX, VOICES OF ROCK),Chris Lausmann (ex-BONFIRE, VOICES OF ROCK) and Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69) and you can definitely hear a sound that has the 'million-dollar-bucks' trademark!"

"Sinister Mind" was released in Europe in October 2007 via Frontiers Records.
