LION'S SHARE Releases New Single And Lyric Video, 'Pentagram'
October 16, 2019
Swedish heavy metal band LION'S SHARE has made a new song, "Pentagram", available on on streaming services and digital service providers.
LION'S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson explained the lyrical inspiration for the track, saying: "The new single 'Pentagram' is based on a true story about someone I know. All of a sudden, he decided that his Christian name was shit. The person in question changed his name and got it approved by the authorities. The reason of the name change was due to the fact that he late in his life became a Satanist.
"LION'S SHARE, of course, has nothing to do with religion or Satan whatsoever, but this true story is so strange and hilarious that we had to write a song about it. It will be in the live set at the upcoming spring gigs as well."
In late 2018, LION'S SHARE released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog remastered with new artwork on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The LION'S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISS, MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND, HAMMERFALL, WOLF, SYMPHONY X, CHIMAIRA, THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and CANDLEMASS. Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (ARCH ENEMY, OPETH, SYMPHONY X, AMON AMARTH),Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (ROXETTE, EUROPE, GLENN HUGHES, ELECTRIC BOYS).
LION'S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says: "We have all songs written for the next LION'S SHARE album and we're almost done with the recordings. We have also started booking festivals and shows for 2020. The first two confirmed dates are in Germany on March 6 and 7."
