First Mission will be a Gathering Of Kings from acts such as Saffire, Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Masterplan, Spiritual Beggars, Pretty Maids and more!
Gathering Of Kings will release their debut album “First Mission” late January 2019, in a cover artwork created by the German artist Markus Vesper. All songs are written by Saffire’s Victor Olsson except “The Runaway” (by Maurice Gibb & Robin Gibb from Bee Gees), a cover of Carola’s hit single from 1986. The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Nocturnal Rites, Dynazty) at The Panic Room in Skövde, Sweden.
