Biography

Russell Allen (Symphony X) & Jorn Lande’s (Masterplan) hard rock project, Allen-Lande is co-created and written by Swedish Last Tribe’s guitarist Magnus Karlsson.

The first chapter Allen-Lande’s collaboration, “The Battle” was unleashed on September 19th 2005 with unanimous acclaim from fans and critics alike.

The second chapter aptly titled “The Revenge” was unleashed on May 11th 2007, with cover art specifically designed for this project by Rodney Matthews (DIAMOND HEAD, MAGNUM, ASIA etc.), once again songs were written by guitar sensation MAGNUS KARLSSON (STARBREAKER, LAST TRIBE).
Heavier and with a tighter production, thanks to the involvement of Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69, ANGRA, PLACE VENDOME) at the mix, this album will excite the many fans who loved the first chapter and everyone who declares themselves fan of quality Hard Rock or Metal.

Many websites and magazines named it “Record of the Year”. It’s success made it one of the most popular releases ever in Melodic Heavy Metal, thanks to beautiful, sweeping piano and keyboards, heavy guitar riffs, virtuoso guitar solos, hooky choruses and the vocal talents of two of the finest Heavy Metal vocalists around.

Allen has worked with Lucassen on various occasions: originally he sang the song “Dawn of a Million Souls” on Ayreon’s 2000 album Universal Migrator Part 2: Flight of the Migrator (which also featured a guitar solo by Michael Romeo), and in 2002 he became one of the lead vocalists for Lucassen’s project Star One.
