TRISTANA - Teams Up With Former Therion Vocalist Mats Levén

Swedish singer Mats Levén, former singer of legendary gothic band Therion, collaborates with alternative gothic/death metal band Tristana from Slovakia. The act calls Tristana feat. Mats Levén and confirms summer festivals. Mats Levén began his carrer on 1986 in Swedish bands Erotica and Treat. In 1997 came his first worldwide succes as Mats teamed up with guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, recording the album Facing The Animal and doing the promotional world tour. In 2002, he joined with a doom metal project Krux and German power metallers At Vance. Around the end of 2003, symphonic metal band Therion asked Levén to join them for the recording of their albums Lemuria and Sirius B. In 2007 Mats Levén with Therion released Gothic Kabbalah and recorded backing vocals for Apocalyptica’s album Worlds Collide. Currently Mats is the lead singer of Candlemass and collaborates with Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist Gus G.
Tristana just released their long awaited third album Virtual Crime (more album details over HERE). Their debut album Back To The Future was released in 2003. Tristana began to be famous in Slovakia after their second album Zircon Street (2010). The band supported various bands including legendary Scorpions (2011) and former Iron Maiden members Blaze Bayley and Paul Di'anno. Tristana’ s modern alternative metal mixes atmospheric ‘hard’n’heavy’ passages with groovy death metal vocals growl and electronic keyboarding.
"Mats is a great singer. I saw him first time on Malmsteen’s live DVD Double Live! from 1998. I was a teenager and I started to sing in the first band. I cant believed how powerful he sang high tones and how easy managed it. His voice is very characteristic and this is very important for good singers. Looking forward our shows", said Tristana’s singer Peter Wilsen. Tristana feat. Mats Levén will play new songs from Tristana’s album Virtual Crime. Mats takes over clean singing parts and Peter Wilsen will do growls. This year, Tristana will record with Mats a new song and music video! Stay tuned for more details.
