In the middle of 2017, Lars Eng began writing music for a new recording project. From the outset, his objective was to create an album close to his heart and to allow the music to come out naturally. To assist him in this endeavor, Lars dug deep into his musical roots. He studied the work of his key musical influences, including Tobias Sammet, Kai Hansen, Adrian Smith, Leo Leoni, and Wolf Hoffmann, among others. In so doing, Lars challenged himself to distill the aspects of those artists’ work that captured his interest.

On the 18th of January, 2023, The Lightbringer of Sweden proudly released its second album, The New World Order, as an independent release under Ygsbostudios (Lars’ own label). The project has now become a full-fledged band with a solid lineup, and the new album is proof positive of that. On The New World Order, the band sounds like a solid unit, and listeners can readily discern the commitment and energy in the end result.

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
