3,5 out of 5

It took 3 years for Jorn to follow up the strong "Spirit black" (2009) with the more weak "Bring heavy rock to the land" (2012), if we don´t count the Dio tribute from 2010. This year, Jorn is definitely firing on all cylinders since we already got the amazing "Symphonic" album where Jorn gave life to his music in a symphonic way and now the brand new studio album "Traveller", which is one of his best albums so far. This time he´s got a new line up with Trond Holter on guitar and Bernt Jansen on bass, both from Wig Wam. Plus  long time member Willy Bendiksen on drums and Jimmy Iversen on guitar, and with this line up, the band sound reborn. The riffs from Holter are edgy and fresh and the vocal performance from Jorn is super as always, you will find no fillers on "Traveller" but instead macho rock from a band armed to the teeth with powerful music. "Overload", "Carry the black" and "Monsoon" are my personal favorites for now. Next week you will probably get another answer.
