Martin Simson is a long-time heavy metal fan and musician, who began writing music and lyrics in 2020, some of which caught the attention of guitar legend and friend, CJ Grimmark (Narnia, Jerusalem, Rob Rock, Empire 21).
The following year they released two singles: ’Destroyer of Death’ featuring Rob Rock (Impellitteri, Solo) on lead vocals and ’Master of All’ featuring Jørn Lande (MasterPlan, Solo) on vocals and Anders Johansson (Tungsten, Uli Jon Roth, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, ex-Hammerfall) on drums.
These songs were very well received, and fans demanded more music, resulting in Martin beginning the process of a full album alongside his squire, CJ Grimmark and lead singer Rob Rock.
The debut album ’Eternal Reign’ contains 10 tracks, nine featuring Rob Rock on lead vocals, and two tracks featuring Jørn Lande on vocals. Other well-known musicians who participate, apart from those previously mentioned are, Rex Carroll (Whitecross) on guitar, Anders Köllerfors (All For the King) on drums.
