The new digital single from long-running Gothenburg, Sweden-based metallers DESTINY, which was originally scheduled for release this month, has been delayed until January. The single will contain material from the band’s anniversary album, “The Incompatibility Of Philosophical Terminology”, which is due in the spring. It will mark the recording debut of new DESTINY singer Jonas Heidgert (DRAGONLAND) and will also be the first release featuring Michael Åberg (NOSTRADAMEUS) on guitar, even though he has been with the band since 2005. Guesting on drums is Adde Larsson (M.A.N., BLACK CANDY STORE) who recorded the drums about a year ago well before current drummer Roger Christiansson joined DESTINY a couple of weeks ago. The bass will, as always, be handled by DESTINY mainman Stefan Björnshög.
Everything but the vocals has already recorded for DESTINY‘s next official full-length CD, “Global Warming”.
Way back in 1982, bassist Stefan Björnshög founded one of Sweden’s first true heavy metal bands, DESTINY. Unlike most other Swedish acts that were active around the same period, DESTINY never broke up. In 2005, DESTINY was joined by guitarist Michael Åberg, who previously played with NOSTRADAMEUS.
Following a tour opening for former BLACK SABBATH vocalist Tony Martin in 2006, DESTINY kept an unusually low profile, partly because the band was unable to find a suitable vocalist and also because of illness and various personal tragedies.
