Insbesondere mit den Astral Doors setzt Patrik Johansson bereits seit 2003 immer neue  Glanzpunkte im Classic Rock und Heavy Metal.

Die Ideen zu den Songs auf „Evil Deluxe“ entstanden über einen Zeitraum von mehr als zehn Jahren. Nicht zuletzt mit Hilfe befreundeter Musiker von z.B. Grave Digger und Lion’s Share gelang es dem oft mit Dio verglichene Sänger auf  „Evil Deluxe“ 12 epische Hymnen zu präsentieren. Zurück zu den Wurzeln des wahren Heavy Metal.



Singer Nils Patrik Johansson (Astral Doors, LION'S SHARE), will release his first solo album.

Packed with hits, Nils Patrik brings you an album that will be a future classic.

From the opener, the super catchy "Evil Deluxe" to the closer, the majestic "A Waltz For Paris", you will be struck by amazing songs and musicianship of highest quality.

The album is produced by Lars Chriss from Lion's Share.

Nils Patrik Johansson has released 18 full length albums with different groups since 2003. "Evil Deluxe" will be number 19.

It all started off with Wuthering Heights, Astral Doors and Space Odyssey. Soon after these releases he also joind the classic Swedish band Lion's Share. After the Sabaton split up with 4 members, the 4 and Nils Patrik joined forces and started Civil War. After 5 years and three full length albums, Nils Patrik decided to leave the band.

Now Nils Patrik is back with his first solo album where he once again proves what a great singer and songwriter he is.

The ideas for the songs on "Evil Deluxe" were created over a period of more than ten years.

Back to the roots of true heavy metal.
