Daniel Lioneye was first formed in 2001 and originally consisted of Ville Valo (HIM) on drums, Mige (HIM) on bass and Linde (HIM) on guitar and vocals. They released one album in the year they formed called "The King Of Rock 'n' Roll," which was a 'tongue in cheek' psychedelic stoner rock album that was only released in Finland and in Germany. The title track of the album ended up being the theme song for Bam Margera's TV show, "Viva La Bam." In 2006, "The King Of Rock 'n' Roll" was the most played Finnish song in the world (right after Sibelius, of course).
In 2008, Linde felt the need to do another Daniel Lioneye album and wanted it to be completely different than the last. Daniel Lioneye has always been about breaking boundaries so it's only natural that the second album takes a new direction. After 8 years Daniel Lioneye is now back with a third album 'Vol. III' to be released on August 19th via The End Records. The album is filled of amazing and intricate guitarwork and they effortlessly switch gears from rock, psych metal and black metal.
