Believe it or not, but the original line-up of this Swedish band was founded by Peter Stenlund way back in the mid-80s. To cut a (very) long story short, Laudamus recorded and released one single (1992), one 4-track EP (1993) and one album (at end of the 90s) before this "Lost In Vain" was unleashed. Following the release of "Unlimited Love" - their full-length debut album - they toured in Sweden and Finland, but were also asked to play the Stryper Expo 2001 in the US, where they got in touch with Ken Tamplin. As soon as a demo for their second album was finished, they sent it to Ken, who agreed to produce their album. "Lost In Vain" was recorded in Tamplin's Music Painter Studio and could be of interest because of the impressive list of guest musicians that were drummed up. Indeed, here you'll find Jeff Scott Soto, Marty Friedman, Kee Marcello, Mattias IA Eklundh, Rob Rock, Howie Simon and Ed Roth! While Escape Music is widely known for its AOR and MHR (re-)releases, this one is a different kind of story, as I would like to call it heavy metal, but (luckily enough) with a high dose of melody. If that sounds like music to your ears, then you should give it a try. (CL)

Just an ordinary album, maybe a little bit boring. Not recommended!

Not a release for Escape this one ! Very average and a blame for Escape that offers more quality than this one. Forget this one and buy the new Newman !
