Jorn: Traveller
Jorn - Traveller Review

Jorn: Traveller

(Melodic) Heavy Rock/Metal
3.5/5.0

Bringing heavy rock to the world once more is Jorn (Lande) with his eighth studio album, Traveller. He also has some new members in his crew for this recording including, from Wig Wam, guitarist Trond Holter (who also produces) and bass player Bernt Jansen.

Jorn and band: one happy bunch of fellows.

The one thing that can be said about a new Jorn album is that you know what you're going to get. Traveller is another platter of his melodic hard rock blended with heavy metal. It's a tried and true formula for him, with little room for experimentation or novelty. There's plenty to be said for consistency and sticking to what you know best.

Jorn delivers his usual heavier steadier material with Overload, Cancer Demon, Traveller (which sounds strangely familiar), and Carry the Black, likely the slowest number here. He picks up the pace and ups the rock groove with Window Maker and Legend Man. Also, returning to a familiar and favorite topic, Jorn offers another tribute to his idol, the legendary Ronnie James Dio, with The Man Who Was King. Even if you tire of his preoccupation with the man, the song sounds like a Dio song, and that's also a fitting tribute. Bottom line: Traveller is Jorn Lande doing what he does best bringing melodic heavy rock and metal to the world with his distinctive voice at the forefront, pure and simple.
