Artist discography


After Jorn's first effort in releasing an album with coversongs back in 2007 he kept on coming with more coverversions on albums after that.
On this last album entitles HeavY Rock Radio he takes on songs from Kate Bush (which he should not have done), Queen, The Eagles etc..

Other covers which are on this release are John Farnham's "You're The Voice", Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'' and Foreigner's 'Rev On The Red Line'.

It is really 'hot' to release an album full of covers these days (Train does Led Zeppelin, and Venice also released an album full of coversongs) but this one to me seems somewhat rushed.
I miss the real emotion in the songs.
I have to be fair though that the vocals are strong.

The stronger songs are Iron Maiden's 'The Final Frontier', Deep Purple's 'Stormbringer' and 'Rainbow in the Dark' from Dio.

For Jorn Lande fans this is a perfect release seeing him take on some classic songs from a different angle again.
For those who really are into the original versions i would say 'stick with that'.
