We are finally very proud to announce our new Black Steam guitarist - Jesper Johansson.
Jesper is a former member of Morifade, Dawn of Silence and Sadauk.
He has also done session work and studio work together with Nekrokraft and AfterNine to name a few.
We believe Jesper will put a lot of experience in the band, not only as a guitarist but also as a composer.
We’re excited to start working with Jesper and to see what he will put into the band. Though we will keep the ”typical Black Steam sound” based on classic heavy metal, we’re not afraid of developing the sound into more ”modern metal” but still with classic notes.
Black Steam is for the moment working on new tracks for an forthcoming album that was set to be released in the first half of 2021, but due to Jan Högström’s osteoarthritis in his fingers forceing him to quit playing guitar, the release will probably be delayed ’til the second half of 2021.
Despite this there will be some singles released in the near future of which the first two or three will be with Jan on guitar and thus probably his last recording.
The band hope to be back on stage in the beginning of 2021 depending on what happens with the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
