Formed in 2017, by Jean Funes, guitarist of Sound Of Eternity. He had the vision to create an AOR / Melodic Hard Rock band in the style of his lifetime heroes; Def Leppard, Journey, Whitesnake, Scorpions, Europe, and called his former bandmate in Codigo Eterno, drummer Joel Mejia, who shares this passion and vision of creating new music, and together HEARTS ON FIRE was started.
 
The searching for vocalist begun and Richard Andermyr of Rian was contacted after listening to the great Rian debut album and was introduced by Andrew McNeice. Richard proved to be a perfect fit for the band, not only with his voice but because of his chemistry with the rest of the band. First single was created and recorded as the first song of the project, “Hearts On Fire”, an uplifting mid-tempo song with great hooks and melodies, being the perfect example of what the band have in their hearts to create.
 
Nello Dell’omo created the great logo and the artwork for the debut album titled “Call Of Destiny”, “We chose this name because we believe that it’s our fate to create music and deliver a message from the heart to the listener. Everything happens for a reason and we are together doing this, even with the fact that we are separated by an ocean, so far from each other.” says Jean Funes.
 
“This is the album I always wanted to make” says Jean Funes. “Sound of Eternity had that modern rock touch all over it and I’m proud of the album we made. But Hearts On Fire - Call Of Destiny have all the elements that I’ve always loved from Melodic Rock music and it comes natural for me to create songs in this style, because I grew up listening to all these great bands from the 80’s and early 90’s.”

RIAN - 'Out Of The Darkness' Debut Album ($15 + $5 shipping worldwide) Out July 22 (Pre-orders ship early)
 
 
 
The guys have spent the last year working on their debut album ‘Out Of The Darkness’ with producer Daniel Flores (Mind’s Eye, Find Me, The Murder of My Sweet). Frontman Richard Andermyr was a fan of Daniel’s work and wanted to see if he could imagine mixing their recordings. After listening to the demos, he instantly understood the potential and said that he was ready to not only to mix, but also to produce and record their album.
 
The result is ‘Out Of The Darkness’, a powerful, melodic hard rock record that is filled with hooks, harmonies and a gritty edge that gives them an original sound. 
Their influences are many, including Bon Jovi, Chicago, Dokken, FM, Gary Moore, Giant, Journey, Metallica, Skid Row, Toto, Van Halen, Warrant, Whitesnake and Winger.
 
Richard Andermyr discovered his songwriting skills in the late 90s. In 2000 he moved to the USA for studies and teamed up with metal band Black Prizm. Back in Sweden Richard formed the hard rock band Whisperwave, who reached the finals in the Emergenza Festival 2 years in a row and were invited by Europe’s Ian Haugland to play live on the Swedish radio station “Rockklassiker”.
 
After spending some years playing covers, writing new material and building up his home studio, Richard teamed up with drummer Jan Johansson (Flower Punch, Kitto) in a new cover band. The musical connection was instant. Jan having heard some of Richard’s recordings, convinced him they needed to quit the cover scene and focus on original melodic hard rock. After auditioning several bassists, they found the right bass player in Jonas Melin (Asparagus, U R in Hot Water) and the lineup was complete.
 
The guys rehearsed and recorded demos in Richard’s basement; in the beginning of 2016 they started to see a strong album forming. They were right.
 
RIAN’s powerful debut album will be released worldwide on July 22 via MRR.
