Swedish metallers DESTINY have announced their new complete line up as follows:
In the beginning of 2013 the final piece of the puzzle for the new line up was added when keyboardist Carl Dahlberg joined DESTINY. This is the first time that DESTINY has a permanent keyboard player in the band, even though there have been keyboards on a few songs on all of the albums, except “The Undiscovered Country”, before. With Carl in the band there will be a new exiting dimension added to the music of DESTINY. Carl will be featured on both the anniversary album ”The Incompatibility of Philosophical Terminology” and “Global Warming”.
Drummer Roger Christiansson, a long time friend of Stefan for the last 25 years, even though they had never played together before, joined the band in December 2012. Roger is perfect for DESTINY on every level and already on the first rehearsal, it’s clear that Roger and Stefan will be a dynamic and heavy new rhythm section. It’s now decided that Roger will rerecord the drums for two of tracks of the anniversary album ”The Incompatibility of Philosophical Terminology.”
Vocalist Jonas Heidgert (Dragonland) joined DESTINY in November 2012. He immediately started to record vocals for a planned digital single. Everyone that heard the result so far has been overwhelmed and there is no doubt that Jonas’s vocals and stage presence, as well as his personality will fit DESTINY perfectly both in the studio and on stage. .
Guitarist Michael Åberg has been a member of DESTINY since 2005. After all these years and numerous gigs with the band it’s time for Michael to debut on not just one, but two DESTINY albums, ”The Incompatibility of Philosophical Terminology” and “Global Warming”.
Finally, there is the driving force of the ever present bassist and main composer, Stefan Björnshög, whose visions and music has molded DESTINY since he founded the band way back in 1982.
