Swedish melodic heavy metal masters Lion's Share will film a video for the song "Judas Must Die" in Stockholm, Sweden with director Josef Doukkali. Lion's Share previously worked with Doukkali on the clip for the track "The Edge Of The Razor," from the Emotional Coma album. The band's original decision to work with Doukkali was based in part on the fact that his background was not in music video but in narrative film projects, and that his more cinematic approach would give the video a unique look and feel.
"Judas Must Die" comes off Lion's Share's sixth album, Dark Hours, which is scheduled for release in March, 2009 via Blistering Records. The CD was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street in ?rebro, Sweden by Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with Opeth, Symphony X, Paradise Lost, Amon Amarth, etc. The new album features a guest appearance by Michael Romeo of Symphony X.
The band states, ?The new songs are simply awesome and everybody that have heard it, think it's our best album to date. The red thread lyric wise on this album is that all songs are about things that happened in the late sixties; a decade known for many good things. However, we're not describing the happy times of the 60's: We give you the Dark Hours. Musically it?s more straight forward and faster than ever. The songs are filled with energy and great hooks.?
