Swedish guitarist and producer Ola Englund, renowned for his work with Six Feet Under, The Haunted and Feared, finally release his second solo album titled “Starzinger” today on CD, vinyl and digital download.
Mixed and mastered by Clawfinger’s Jocke Skog, “Starzinger” follows-up Englund’s debut solo album “Master of the Universe” released in early 2018 and features Delta Empire on drums along with a number of guest appearances from several artists including guitar virtuoso Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Ex-Nevermore).
Portraying the artwork of Costin Chioreanu (Paradise Lost, At The Gates, Emperor, etc…) , “Starzinger” sees Englund merging influences of prog, 80’s rock and metal.
“I’m extremely excited to see the release of my second solo album Starzinger, this album being a little bit more metal oriented than my first Master of The Universe album. It’s a weird feeling because it’s basically just showing the current state of me and where I am in life. Hoping that the people that follow what I do can see the parallels. This one is for you.” Says Englund about this new effort.
With over 300K subscribers on his tech/music Youtube channel, over the last few years, Ola Englund has also built a strong reputation in the music scene by playing in several bands, most prominently in Feared and The Haunted. Just recently Englund also founded his own guitar company called Solar Guitars, which was meet with great success and currently sponsors artists like Exhorder, The Haunted and At The Gates.
