The latest band that has been added to the line-up for the next edition of Elements of Rock is long time running Swedish classic heavy metal band Leviticus.
For those who aren’t up on the history of Christian metal bands, Leviticus formed in 1981 and was led by Bjorn Stigsson. Some refer to as one of the pioneers of Christian metal. Their first ep was released in 1982 and after that they remained a band, releasing four albums before disbanding in 1990. The band re-formed in March 2003 to play at the final Bobfest. The show was recorded by Sveriges Radio and released to CD. The final Leviticus show was held in Hjo Sweden June 2003 a festival gig together with Swedish metal giants In Flames. A re-release of ”The Strongest Power” from 1985 has been released in 2013 through Ektro Records. Our review can be found here.
