“I am proud and honoured to introduce Linda Toni Grahn from Anima Veil (ex-Follow the Cipher) as my special guest for ‘The Pandemic Pandemonium Sessions’. The 11th song is entitled ‘Forever and Beyond’, and will be available on all digital platforms on the 26th of August 2022. This song is a very powerful, groovy and quite uptempo track. Linda has a really cool signature voice with a great diversity that fits perfectly for this track. I feel truly privileged and thankful to have Linda on board this project, and I am really looking forward to sharing this song with you all. Forever and Beyond is an awesome addition to “The Pandemic Pandemonium Sessions.”
Quote – Linda Toni Grahn:
“It was a fantastic collaboration with Morten during this song.
Super nice and friendly and easy to work with! From the beginning I felt that his way of creating music was in line with my own sense of what I want to sing.
The melody and lyrics suited me very well.
I really love this song, it’s both heavy and brutal but also soft and elegant. Wonderful work and I just want to say: THANK YOU MORTEN!”
