What do you think about if you think about Norway? Definitely not of melodic hardrock!

But Jorn Lande is on the best course to change that! He just signed with AFM Records and released his third solo album: "Out To Every Nation". This time he engaged Ronny Tegnar (keyboards), Pagan's Jřrn Viggo Lofstad (guitar), Stian Kristoffersen (drums) and last but certainly not least Hammerfall's Magnus Rosén (bass). Jorn's new line-up is certain.

For all who can not really associate the name Jorn Lande with anything: among the bands and projects he worked with are Vagabond, The Snakes, Millenium, Beyond Twilight, the rock opera Nostradamus, Ark and - last but certainly not least - Masterplan, which is currently his main band...and which have been honoured with the "European Border Breakers Award" in 2003.

Jorn Lande is gifted with a voice of an angel and is definitely one of the best hardrock singers ever. But we shoudn't make the mistake to forget the rest of the band because Jřrn Viggo Lofstad, for example, sure knows how to use his guitar (listen to the short but stunning solo on "Vision Eyes") and we don't have to talk about Magnus Rosén abilities here either.

But back to "Out To Every Nation":
The result is a diverse album, containing ten songs that could appeal to a wide audience. "Out To Every Nation" is full of classical hardrock which is engaged with melodic power metal and will please the die hards in the rock scene as well as the melodic power metal freaks. The whole CD will remind you of Whitesnake/The Snakes and of course Masterplan. Jorn even sounds like the fresh version of Coverdale.

Especially worth mentioning are the epic title track "Out To Every Nation", whose chorus is pure hit-single stuff; "Living With Wolves" of which a video was shot in Jorn's birth place Rjukan, "Vision Eyes", and my personal favourite "Rock Spirit" which is a straight up hardrocker with a catchy chorus and strong guitar riff. "Behind The Clown" has a lot Vagabond and Millenium in it, and the closing song "When Angels Wings Were White" could easily belong to a new Ark album. You could describe it as a slightly progressive mid-tempo rocker with a moody feeling and changing tempo.

Let me assure you that "Out To Every Nation" marks another highlight in Jorn's (still young) career: 100% Jorn Lande from start to finish, and once again, he proves to be one of the world's greatest voices! Even though everything he puts his voice to sounds great but the same. No offence! I like it!
