Daniel Lioneye (H.I.M. side project) need a music video and are tasking their fans to create one for them. The band have launched a music video contest for the songs “I Have Never Wanted To Be Number One” and “Euroshaman.” Go to the contest page www.redmusic.com/lioneyevideo for directions on how to download the songs, lyrics, and where to upload your video once you’re done. One Grand Prize winner will recieve a white Gibson SG guitar (that was used by Linde while on tour with H.I.M.), a $500 AMEX gift card, and an autographed copy of Vol. II.
Formed in 2001, Daniel Lioneye’s debut album, The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, was only released in Finland and Germany and was a “tongue in cheek” psychedelic stoner rock album. Earning the group quite a bit of attention, the band played at handful of festivals in Finland which resulted in the title track being the theme song for Bam Margera’s TV show, Viva La Bam. Simply called VOL. II, the band’s North American debut is heavier than the band’s prior release, making it an extreme, yet melodic, rock n’ roll album influenced by black metal.
