Jorn – Heavy Rock Radio Album Review
As we reported earlier, Jorn Lande is set to release a new album of cover songs with a twist…and since these are radio friendly titles that have been turned into heavier tunes it is aptly titled “Heavy Rock Radio”.
We have songs from Frida (Abba) and Kate Bush that were turned from light-weight pop or eclectic to heavy rock stompers – really cool twists on these songs. Paired with that are killer hard rock tracks from Queen, Foreigner and Journey and all of them are not run-of-the-mill covers, but reinterpretations that can stand on their own.
Even one of the most overplayed songs of all times, “Hotel California” is suddenly listenable again – thanks Jorn! Another interesting choice surely is the Paul Stanley solo track “Live To Win”, which is an in-your-face rendition done well. You can find the video for this one below.

We also have some Dion, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath as well as a killer version of “Killer Queen” (Queen). Unlike “Hotel California” even Jorn can not save “Don’t Stop Believin'” (Journey) after it has been mistreated so many times by pop culture over the last years – ears are still bleeding from those abominations…
