It's the story of how he got kicked out of Heaven. He tried to overthrow God and take over. The song talks about how beautiful he was. When he walked, there was music. He was the angel of worship and this incredibly powerful and beautiful being."

Magnus Karlsson is the mastermind behind several Frontiers Music Srl productions, including the successful initial ALLEN/LANDE trilogy, STARBREAKER, BOB CATLEY, KISKE/SOMERVILLE and several others. In 2008, he joined the German heavy metal icons PRIMAL FEAR and with them has toured the world and recorded three successful albums that climbed high on the charts in several countries.
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of FIND ME's new album, entitled “Dark Angel”, on December 4th in Europe and North America.
FIND ME is a collaboration between Swedish musician, songwriter and producer Daniel Flores (Issa, The Murder of My Sweet, Seventh Wonder) and singer Robbie LaBlanc from Blanc Faces. The partnership was put together by Frontiers President, Serafino Perugino with a vision to unleash another AOR behemoth.
FIND ME’s debut album, “Wings of Love” received excellent reviews and left fans begging for more music from the duo! No demands could have been easier to fulfill as the two guys just love working together and finding the right songs for the group from contributors the likes of Alessandro Del Vecchio, brothers Tom and James Martin (Vega, Issa), Soren Kronqvist (Sunstorm), Niclas Olsson (Alyson Avenue), Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said) or Philip Lindstrand (Strong) is never a problem.
Christian metal band Stryper, formed in 1983, tallies its highest sales week of the Nielsen Music era and matches its best career rank on Top Christian Albums, debuting at No. 2 with Fallen, which starts with 10,000 copies sold. Stryper's ninth top 10 on the chart matches its best rank, joining 2009's Murder by Pride and 2013's No More Hell to Pay, and narrowly tops the debut sales frame of the latter.
"In the old days, we had the heavy songs and the poppier songs," says Stryper frontman Michael Sweet of Fallen lead single "Pride." "This is a merge of the two. It's got it all." Stryper scored its first top 10 on Top Christian Albums, The Yellow and Black Attack, more than 30 years ago (No. 10, June 1, 1985).
Jason Bonham, who drummed for Led Zeppelin at a reunion gig in place of his late father John, has said: "I do think we will play again." The band released eight albums in their 12 years together, and were a consistent presence in the world of rock throughout the '70s, but disbanded after the death of John Bonham.
Bonham died suddenly in 1980 after consuming around 40 shots of vodka. He was just 32-years-old, and the band - whose output and touring schedule had been limited for a while - decided to call it quits.
They've reunited sporadically since then - the most notable of which was at The O2 Arena in 2007, when Bonham's son Jason Bonham played drums. Now, in a new interview with Vanyaland, Bonham has suggested that the band may reunite once again. "In my heart of hearts, I do believe we will play again," he revealed. "It remains to be seen if it will be in public or privately, but I do think we will play again.
