THE WAYMAKER – SCANDINAVIAN METAL SENSATION FROM SWEDEN AND FINLAND BAND FEATURING MEMBERS OF NARNIA AND EX-DIVINEFIRE RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM!
The new metal sensation from Sweden and Finland is here, featuring Christian Liljegren (Narnia, Audiovision, solo artist, ex-Divinefire, Golden Resurrection, etc.), Jani Stefanovic (Shakiah, Solution .45, The Weakening, Miseration, ex-Divinefire, Mehida, Essence of Sorrow, etc.), and Katja Stefanovic (solo artist).
The Waymaker was formed in summer of 2019 by vocalist Christian Liljegren (Narnia) & guitarist Jani Stefanovic (Solution .45 & Miseration). Jani & Christian were both involved in Divinefire, who did five studio albums between 2005-2011 and reached a huge popularity especially in Japan & South America. The Waymaker line-up was completed when the talented and soulful Katja Stefanovic joined the band. Katja is a very talented vocalist and composer and she has done several solo albums in Finnish and English.
The band delivers bombastic Scandinavian melodic metal with virtuous guitar playing and powerful male & female vocals from all members, as Christian, Katja & Jani share lead vocal duties in The Waymaker. All members have a long musical background and experiences from touring and recording worldwide, but one common goal have been to take the listener on a musical journey, where the music and the message is The Waymaker in this time.
We live in a chaotic world where it is hard to find peace and your place. The Waymaker wants to deliver music with a heavenly hope and guidance to as many as possible. If you listen to the music you hear influences from Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Stratovarius, Masterplan & Kamelot.
It is always hard to break new ground but The Waymaker delivers Scandinavian melodic metal with a new twist! It is very powerful but still a dynamic production handled by Jani Stefanovic and Multi Grammy, Gold & Platinum Award winning Thomas Plec Johansson (Gathering of Kings, Soilwork, Nocturnal Rites, Divinefire and many more.)
