New album "Requiem" from swedish band JONO

The music is symphonic/progressive rock/pop - with influences from bands like ...well ... Supertramp, Queen, Saga, Muse, Sparks and a bunch of others, but with a very unique sound and style of it's own.

The band consists of five musicians with a wide experience of musical styles.

The guitarist, Stefan Helleblad, is also a member of dutch symphonic rock stars Within Temptation. The drummer (Nicka Hellenberg) played all the drums on Within Temptation's last album "The Unforgiving". 

The songs are written by singer Johan Norrby, arranged by the band and produced by Helleblad/Norrby & keyboard player Johan Carlgren. The result is a somewhat bombastic, melodic production.

The album Requiem is availabla on Spotify and iTunes.

Jono is:

Johan Norrby – Vocals & Keyboards

Stefan Helleblad - Guitars

Johan Carlgren - Keyboards

Nicka Hellenberg - Drums

Janne Henriksson – Bass


Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E-Zine
