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

A 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.
Trond and I are excited and proud to finally announce the release dates for the album, which are January 23rd in the EU and January 27th in North America.

To watch and listen to the trailer CLICK HERE.
Pre-order the album at AMAZON.

MESSAGE FROM JORN

Just 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.

CAMBRIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL & RODNEY MATTHEWS

I'd like to thank David Roberts and everyone at the Cambridge Rock Festival. The storm that hit England shut down the PA system and nearly destroyed the stage, but due to the hard working staff, and some luck, the festival could go on.
It was really great to meet Rodney Matthews, who has done artwork for me and my record label. He is such a talented and wonderful man, and some of the greatest album covers of our time, have been created by him. The way Rodney combines real painting skills with airbrush technique, is truly unique. In a career spanning more than 40 years, he has become a trademark in the world of art. Besides creating posters and artwork for books, he has done album covers for Nazareth, Magnum, Asia, Rick Wakeman, and the list goes on....To learn more about Rodney and his work you can visit his website HERE.

We had a great time at the Kavarna Rock Fest in Bulgaria this weekend, and would like to thank everyone for their hospitality and kindness. With such a great reception from the crowd and festival staff, we all felt very privileged. Special thanks to Dani and Elena who took such good care of us!

I would also like to thank the town Mayor Tsonko Tsonev, for inviting me to the july morning event. It was a magical night with a sunrise I will never forget! It was also great to meet my good friend John Lawton, and his wife Iris again, since I hadn't seen them for quite some time. And not to forget the heavy metal dentist Dr. Ivo Taskov for fixing my broken tooth in such short notice, thank you!!

I also took the time to visit the bronze statue of Ronnie James Dio, a beautiful monument of a magic man!

Hope to see you all again soon!

JORN FEATURING IN ONE OF THE WORLDS LEADING GAMES "LEAGUE OF LEGENDS"

The song "Lightbringer" was launched on May 27th by Riot Games, Inc.

Jorns comment:
I worked closely with music producer Christian Linke of Riot Games in LA, on a project called "Pentakill", which is basically a heavy rock band within the League of Legends concept.
"Pentakill" is the Valoran continents most famous (and possibly only) rock band. Its members consist of champions from the game.
It's very exciting to be a part of this new development in the gaming industry, it's a great opportunity to be able to reach out to millions of people worldwide in just a blink of an eye. It has been a great experience working with the productive and dedicated people of Riot Games, and I am truly proud to be a part of this!

RANDY COVEN HAS PASSED AWAY

My old friend Randy Coven passed away on 20th of May. He was only 54!
Unfortunately I haven't seen Randy the last few years, we were both keeping busy and time just flew by.
I'm proud to have known and worked with Randy, he was such a funny and talented man and his great sense of humor gave us many good laughs. His efforts on the Ark album "Burn the sun" speaks for itself, John, Mats, Tore, Randy and myself really created some magic together.

My thoughts go to his family and friends.

OVERLOAD LIVE FOOTAGE MUSIC VIDEOS

Previously unreleased music videos from live footage with Jorn. These three different edits were put together shortly after the release of the music video for "Traveller", but never uploaded until now.

"At the time we didn't see these videos as official music videos, since they were all based on live footage and live images.
We thought they would be more suitable as bonus material in connection with a future compilation or as something extra on the next studio album. The original plan was to put together one video for "Overload", using the best footage from all the three versions to make the best possible result. I changed my mind and thought it would be a special treat for the fans to release them all as they are. I personally like "Overload" a lot, it is one of my favourite Jorn songs, as it is a true massive rocker with a killer riff that hits you right in the face. Being such a great song it would be a shame to just "sit" on the material, life is now and it deserves to be released."

Happy New Year!


2013 has been a rollercoaster of new experiences that has given me strength and confidence, and I'm ready for everything 2014 has to offer!

2014 already has many things in store for me, and I'm truly grateful and happy for the opportunities life has given me so far.
Let's all hope for good health, remember to think positive, give lots of love, and of course: let's keep on bringing the rock!

Thank you for your love and support, it's what keeps me going!

Jorn Lande attending the opening ceremony of historic sun mirrors in his city of birth, Rjukan, Norway

On wednesday October 30th, Jorn Lande took part in the official opening ceremony to celebrate the sun mirrors in Rjukan.

This installation consists of three giant mirrors, designed to reflect the sun down to the town center during the dark winter months. Controlled by computers, the three tilted mirrors follow the course of the sun to bring sunshine to Rjukan's main square below.

The natural sunlight doesn't  reach down to the town of Rjukan from early October to the middle of March, leaving the valley in constant shadow. Every year in March thousands of people take to the streets in a carnival to celebrate the suns return, the yearly "solfest".

The idea of bringing sunshine to Rjukan this way, was first considered a century ago by a norwegian engineer and industrialist, Sam Eyde, who developed the town of Rjukan to provide workers for the power plant, which lies at the foot of a massive waterfall.

At that time the technology did not exist to fulfill his vision to harness the rays of the winter sun.

Instead, a cable car was installed to bring Rjukan's inhabitants to the top of an adjacent mountain for a fix of winter sun.

By the beginning of the 21st Century, the giant mirror plan had become a viable option, and the italian village of Viganella installed a similar sun mirror in 2006.

Now Rjukan can benefit from three large mirrors placed high on the mountain, reflecting the sun down on the town square all winter. This truly historic event is not only a fantastic contribution for the citizens of Rjukan, but also something that will promote the town and area internationally.

It was natural to have Jorn as part of the opening ceremony as he was officially appointed "Prince of the sun" earlier this year by the town mayor and the "solfest" committee. Joining him for this event was Jorn guitarist Trond Holter, and together they made the mountains echo. Rjukan is famous for it's breathtaking scenery, and has become a mecca for ski enthusiast and mountain climbers from all over the world. It was also here that one of the most historic and dary sabotage plots of all time was carried out during world war II: The bravery of the men who sabotaged Hitlers attempt to develop an atomic bomb at a hydroelectric plant near Rjukan.

"Cancer Demon" music video

"Cancer Demon" is a special song with a strong message that most people unfortunately may be able to relate to. The song is written with the intent to shed some light on one of the world's worst illnesses: cancer. I have had the privilege of recording this video in a medieval chapel in Sarpsborg, Norway. I think this location makes the message stronger and more direct, as the lyrics also are. The song might seem brutal, but I think people can relate to and embrace it for its honesty, and see it as a daring, but beautiful thing to do.


The pressure of trends and business may overshadow our presence these days, and by striving to be politically correct, people forget to live and breathe, while there's still time and health is good.


I'm sure many of you know someone who lost their battle with cancer, or maybe someone who won it. Personally I lost friends, family and colleagues through the years. "Cancer Demon" has a lyrical message beyond what rock or metal bands would normally write, and therefore I believe it is more unique.

This message should be available for everyone rather than swept under the rug. Help stop the ”Cancer Demon” now, and make a donation !

ZATANS FC FINAL RESULTS

 

Zatans FC won the first four matches of the tournament, but lost 2-1 in the final against Örebro United.

We should have won, Jorn says, we played really well, but spoiled some good chances of scoring in the final. We had great teamwork going and this was a great and fun experience!. I thought I was pretty fit, but I'm definitely a bit out of shape as I almost couldn't get out of bed the next couple of days after the tournament….

Just getting out of my car was a challenge, I still feel it in my legs. If I'm invited to play for Zatans FC again, I will do it for sure! :-)

With or without me, Örebro United will shiver in 2014, there shall be revenge!
Till then we must rock!

Jorn plays heavy metal soccer for Sweden!

Jorn Lande, representing the county of Skåne, Sweden, in the heavy metal soccer tournament of the year called metallsvenskan, in Örebro. Jorn plays for Zatan FC, defending their champion title from last year. Results will be posted later.

www.metallsvenskan.se

 

==========================================================================

 

Jorn is appointed "Prince of the Sun"

On the sunny day of april 7th 2013 Jorn Lande was officially appointed “Prince of the Sun” by the mayor of his city of birth, Rjukan, in Telemark, Norway. The Prince and his entourage arrived at the town square stage after being part of a long royal style cortege through the streets of Rjukan.
The ceremony was held in front of several thousand people at the town square.
"The rock world already has it's "Prince of darkness", now it also has a "Prince of the Sun"" - the newly appointed prince Jorn proclaimed in his speech to the people.

The city of Rjukan is famous for this annual celebration every spring, marking the day the sun returns – meaning that it is high enough on the sky to reach Rjukan and its residents in the deep valley.
From october to march every year the valley is in shadows. All the people of Rjukan take to the streets and dress up in fantastic costumes to celebrate the sun’s return.
The first «Solfest» - sun carneval - was held in 1925 and has since been an important cultural event.
And every “Solfest” they appoint a Prince of the sun – who has to be a person from Rjukan that has contributed to promoting and benefiting the town and the area.

Rjukans history is quite impressive and of huge interest world wide, as it was here the worlds largest power plant was built by Norsk Hydro in the early 19th century.


Rjukan was a significant industrial center producing Salpetre (fertilizer) and later hydrogen, which again resulted in the product known as heavy water (deuterium oxide).
During World War II the production of heavy water was of huge interest to Hitler and his nuclear program, since heavy water could be used to produce nuclear weapons. The norwegian resistance, in collaboration with the allies, decided to sabotage the heavy water supply and destroy the heavy water plant, to stop the nazi development of nuclear weapons.

High risk raids were aimed at the 60-MW Vemork Power Station by the Rjukan water fall while it was in german hands.
After the war, Hollywood and Columbia Pictures looked to Rjukan and the spectacular war efforts of the local saboteurs, and in 1965 the film "Heroes of Telemark" was made, starring legendary actors Kirk Douglas and Richard Harris.

The film, about the heavy water sabotage, was among the 15 most popular films at the british box office in 1966.

==========================================================================

 Jorn "symphonic" to be released in January.

- A special album will be released January 25th in Europe, and January 22nd in North America

"It was a spontaneous idea that is now put to life, as I thought it would be interesting to hear how some selected Jorn recordings would sound with a classical orchestral arrangement.

The classical arrangements were added to the already existing studio versions, but some songs were remixed to give more room for the orchestra. I didn't want to choose the most obvious Jorn songs, as I didn't want this album to come out as a typical "best of" release.

It ended up being a track list with variety, with some songs that are not too typical in a Jorn context, chosen simply because some great songs often tend to be forgotten and therefore deserve a second chance. Some of them are featured closer to the end of the albums they belong to, or have previously been used as bonus tracks, and as the years fly by people seem to remember only the title tracks, singles or official music videos. I personally feel that some tracks were improved by adding the orchestra, just check out "I came to rock", "The world I see" and “Burn your flame”, they really came out fresh and different, compared to the original versions."

I hope you will enjoy the album and maybe you will even rediscover some songs you had forgotten…

 

I wish everyone a Spectacular New Year!

Jon Lord has passed away

 
I am deeply sorry to hear that once again cancer has taken a great man and musician away from us.
I've had the great pleasure of working with Jon Lord, and during  the time we spent together he showed himself as  a true gentleman, and a focused and dedicated musician.
He was an understanding and kind person to be around.
I have one treasured memory from when we did some interviews together; a journalist asked Jon if he thought it was very obvious that Jorn Lande had been influenced by 70's era singers,
and Jon Lord’s earlier fellow musicians. Jon’s answer was: “ influenced maybe, but Jorn has developed his own uniqe sound and singing technique".
To hear this coming from Jon, one of my heroes in music, was a great recognition and it made me very proud and humble.
 
I'm not used to doing church concerts with a huge orchestra, as I did with Jon Lord in 2007, so I was feeling quite nervous about the gig, but Jon was very understanding and comforting and he made me feel at ease.
The concert at the “Nidarosdomen” cathedral in Trondheim, Norway, was sold out and a huge success, and it was a wonderful experience to participate.
I will forever remember and cherish the lunches, the walks, and the rehearsals, together with the greatest maestro of them all!
My thoughts go to his family and friends in their sorrow.
 
Jon, you will forever be pictured within.
 
J.L.

We have just finished the filming of a music video for the title track "Bring Heavy Rock To The Land" which was done at "Kongsten Fort", an old historic fort in Fredrikstad, Norway, dating back to the 16th century.The weather gods were helpful, so we avoided rain and pulled it off in one day and half a night, and we wish to thank Fredrikstad Museum for their kindness and use of the location.The Title Track "Bring Heavy Rock To The Land" will be released as a single world wide on May 14th, but can be listened to exclusively on the Frontiers records webradio www.frontiers.it/webradio

In memory of Mika Ahola 1974 - 2012

Our dear friend has passed away.
Five time enduro world champion Mika Ahola died january 15th from internal injuries, a few weeks after crashing while training in Girona, Spain.
Mika was a true lover of rock and as he went through several surgeries and fought for his life, he listened to our music and found strenght. Unfortunately it couldn't heal his injuries, but it makes us all extremely humble and grateful, and it is a reminder that what we do in this life makes a difference.

Mika chose to live life on the edge by pursuing a carrier in enduro racing, but he followed his heart and his dream, and it made him the great champion that he was. Most people in this world regret not to have done so when they get old and reflect on what could have been. Mikas life ran too short and his fire burned fast, but he was an inspiration to so many who recognized his talent and spirit. His racing skills came from years of hard work and training and our thoughts go to his wife Marika who stood by him all these years and sacrificed everything to be with the man she loved.

Mika, we miss you, and we feel proud and lucky to be able to call you our friend.

South American fans have experienced Jorn Lande live as frontman for Masterplan and recently on the world tour with Avantasia "The Flying Opera", but for the first time he will visit South America under the Jorn banner. Jorn says: There have been several tours in South America with Masterplan and Avantasia, and everytime I'm there people ask when I will come with the Jorn band.


Finally it will happen and we're all really excited about it. The warm enthusiasm and dedication I have experienced on my previous trips to Brasil, Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica and Mexico is unique, and this time around we have also included Uruguay in the tour plan.The response from the people of South America is like medicine to the soul and if life is sometimes filled with doubt, going there puts things in perspective and makes you wanna continue full force.

UPDATE FROM JORN

The last few months have been filled with work and new impressions, and I'm slowly getting back on track with future plans . The Heaven & Hell - Ronnie James Dio tribute concert, in Victoria Park London, was a sad experience as well as a great thing to do, and I will forever be honored and grateful for beeing a part of it.
I wish to thank Tony, Geezer, Vinny, Scott, Glenn and everyone involved for making me feel so welcome and included. I also wish to thank all the people that were there to see the show, who embraced it for what it was, a sole tribute to the man and legend Ronnie James Dio. You can make a donation to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund by visiting:

www.ronniejamesdio.com

Life goes on and the wheel is turning, the next step for me this year will be to go through the Jorn live material, recorded at Sweden Rock festival earlier this summer. We are aiming for a full lenght live cd and dvd release in 2011, but we still have to check the footage from the show thoroughly, to find out if everything is intact and qualitywise usable for a full length Dvd production. We will know soon, and let you all know.

Rock!

Best, Jorn

The Norse God of Metal. The leader of the renaissance of classic hard rock on its highest level. One of the most prolific and sought-after singers of today, whose immense vocal talent has reserved him a status of a living legend to be counted amongst the greatest giants in the history of rock.

 

www.revelationz.net states: Jorn's voice is one of the finest you will find in the heavy metal genre. There is none like it, and once heard, it completely consumes your thoughts and worms into your emotions. Guitars are dazzling as is the norm for these albums, his six string musicians being masters of the axe, giving electric fury to match his hurricane force voice.

 

The JORN album, 'Spirit Black' is like a crossover between 'The Duke' and 'Lonely Are The Brave', and contains songs that have already become essential hard rock classics. You want JORN and he gives it to you, nothing compromised or modernized or fiddled with.
