LION'S SHARE Pays Tribute To RONNIE JAMES DIO At Sweden's GATUFESTEN, ROCKWEEKEND Festivals

July 12, 2010

Fan-filmed video footage of Swedish melodic metallers LION'S SHARE performing cover versions of BLACK SABBATH's "Heaven And Hell" and RAINBOW's "We Rock" as a tribute to Ronnie James Dio during their appearances at the Gatufesten in Sundsvall, Sweden on July 8, 2010 and Rockweekend festival in Kilafors (two hours north of Stockholm),Sweden on July 9, 2010 — can be viewed below.

LION'S SHARE's critically acclaimed "Dark Hours" album was released in March 2009 via Blistering Records. The follow-up to 2007's "Emotional Coma" was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SYMPHONY X, PARADISE LOST, AMON AMARTH) and features guest appearances by SYMPHONY X guitarist Mike Romeo (guest solo on "Behind The Curtain"),and drummers Conny Pettersson (from Earache Records death metal act ANATA) and Richard Evensand (CHIMAIRA, SOILWORK).

LION'S SHARE's video for the song "Judas Must Die" was shot in Stockholm, Sweden with director Josef Doukkali. The group previously worked with Doukkali on the clip for the track "The Edge Of The Razor", from the "Emotional Coma" album. The band's original decision to work with Doukkali was based in part on the fact that his background was not in music video but in narrative film projects, and that his more cinematic approach would give the clip a unique look and feel.

"Judas Must Die" is available for free download at this location (MP3 file, 3.4 MB).
