Notes and Editorial Reviews

Past Future—for the first time a record featuring the electric bass as solo instrument with symphony orchestra! Magnus Rosén is a former member of multi-platinum and award winning heavymetal act Hammerfall, but has in later years pursued a career as an electric-bass soloist. On this his first album with a symphony orchestra, both Magnus’ own compositions as well as music written and arranged especially for this unusual combination are performed.
