Swedish melodic/progressive metallers VINDICTIV, formed and led by guitar sensation Stefan Lindholm, have tapped producer/engineer Lars Chriss (LION’S SHARE) to mix their brand new studio CD, tentatively due in early 2013 via an as-yet-undetermined record label.
The band’s third album, “Cage of Infinity”, will mark the recording debut of their new singer, Marco Sandron (ex-EDEN’S CURSE), and will see them heading in a more straight-ahead heavy metal direction.
“I made an effort to make the album cohesive, but as a notorious shredder, I couldn’t restrain myself completely,” laughs Lindholm.
VINDICTIV released two albums so far — the self-titled debut in 2008 and “Ground Zero” in 2009. Apart from his main band, Stefan has been a successful soloist on a number of albums, among them record producer Tom Galley‘s international project “Phenomena” and “Soulspell”. Other great vocalists Stefan has worked with include Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH), Oliver Hartmann (AT VANCE, AVANTASIA) and Mark Boals (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, RING OF FIRE).
