After the departure of bass-player Jimmy Mattsson from LOCH VOSTOK earlier this spring, the band has acted fast on the challenge it is to lose a band-member, and have recruited the perfect replacement, namely Patrik Janson (The Murder of My Sweet, Wigelius, ex-Platitude).
Teddy Møller (vocals/guitars) confirms:
“After a long and hard search (not really) for a new bass player we decided for the infamous Patrik (Don Johnson) Janson He has been a Loch Vostok fan for many years and delivered 100% on the audition. Welcome to the band, Pat!”
LOCH VOSTOK released their 7th album “Strife” in November 2017 – one of their absolute finest efforts in a career, spanning more than a decade.
“Strife” deals with loss on every imaginable level, the loss of life, love, monetary assets, friends etc., but also the rebuild afterwards.
The album was recorded at Frontporch Productions, mixed by David Castillo (Katatonia, Dark Tranquility, Sepultura) and mastered by Jens Bogren (No further introduction needed), both doing a splendid job with the awesome material, in Fascination Street!
