1998 – Midnight Sun – Above And Beyond

The follow-up of their debut album Another World featuring guest musicians John Norum and Hempo Hildén. This second album was released in Japan in 1998, and was once again very well received. Lead vocalist Pete Sandberg went over to Tokyo for some promotion. Jonas wrote all music for this album.

The album was also scheduled for release in Europe in 1998 but got postponed and was released in 1999. The music was produced by Jonas and is very well-balanced, overall a very good album with strong chorusses and heartfelt vocals by Pete.
