Winterlong: The Second Coming

Lion Music churns out some of the most consistently interesting guitar and progressive music in Europe and Scandinavia(that's arguably where the largest number of their artists come from). They have their hits (OHM) and their misses, but digging into a Lion record is always an adventure. Such is the case with Winterlong, headed by Swedish guitar maestro Thorbjorn Englund. Featuring searing guitar work from Mr. E. as well as vocals from Mikael Holm (often reminiscent of Ronnie James Dio during the Rainbow years), The Second Coming, is a wild and enjoyable tour of whatever this world will finally come to.

Unlike some guitar-led projects, the lyrics here are concerned with real emotions and large concerns that come of as well-informed, insightful. Most interesting among them is perhaps "We'll Be Immortals," a kind of meditation on the origins of life on this planet. And while the record will keep you thinking, it won't stop you from becoming elevated and casting your eyes on the celestial body from which Englund's guitar notes clearly emanate.
