Mundanus Imperium  


Once upon a time this Norwegian band was firmly in the black metal camp, but by the time of their debut album, they had transformed into a progressive/power metal band, with some black metal remnants (notably the keyboards) left in. Vocalist Jørn Lande (then an unknown, and probably not a part of the band in its early days) displayed a strong voice and a 70's style, reminiscent of singers such as Ronnie James Dio or Ian Gillan. There's a noticeable symphonic/classical feel to the songs, with the end result being a pretty interesting album, and what appeared to be a start to a solid career. debut. For whatever reason, however, the band soon disappeared from sight, and apart from Lande later joining Ark (and after that, Masterplan), the members were never heard from again.
