2006 solo album by this hard rock vocalist who fronted Badlands, Artension and, most recently, Royal Hunt. Features musical assistance from Chris Caffery and Jeff Plate from Savatage.
Third solo album for hard rock vocalist who's fronted Badlands, Artension & Royal Hunt in addition to collaborating with Marc Ferrari, Cozy Powell & James Murphy. Guests include members of Halford, Savatage & Artension.
"Permanent Mark" is the second studio album by John West. This time John opted for a more melodic and song oriented approach and the resulting record is a mixture of the several Hard Rock influences - between Cozy Powell and Glenn Hughes. A musically intense and passionate work with a very satisfying production which makes the record very accessible and listenable thanks to the great performances by the musicians and artists involved.
John West was formerly the lead vocalist of the Danish metal band Royal Hunt. He has also released several solo albums and before the Royal Hunt fame he has achieved some fame as the singer of Artension. "Mind Journey" - first solo album from this vocalist. Very solid and consistent album.
