LANCERs new album Second Storm is a lesson in melodic metal and follows a long tradition of outstanding Swedish Metal Bands like Hammerfall, Sabaton and many more! The album has been recorded in the world famous Leon Music Studios with producer Gustav Ydenius (Steelwing, Mustasch, Enforcer) and the cover artwork has been painted by Dimitar Nikolov (who has previously made artwork for Steelwing and Katana). The Swedish melodic metal band draws its inspiration from classical acts like Iron Maiden, Helloween and Gamma Ray, adding a personal and modern touch to the sound. They debuted in 2012 with their EP Purple Sky.
In early 2013 the follow up to the Purple Sky EP, LANCERs self-titled debut album was released world wide. The album was produced by Tommy Reinxeed and Ronny Milianowicz (previous collaborations with Hammerfall, Michael Kiske and Timo Tolkki to name a few!), and it received amazing reviews from the metal press all around the world. Japanese Burrn Magazine gave the album 75/100 and Sweden Rock Magazine 7/10, naming the band a new hope for European power metal, and it received even higher grades from several European and American reviewers. LANCERs music videos for the songs Purple Sky and Young and Alive have also been aired on Metal Hammer Greeces own TV channel.
