Comments from RSJ Online:
Jonas Hellborg is a brilliant Swedish bassist who has played with the likes of John McLaughlin, Shawn Lane, Buckethead, Michael Shrieve, Kofi Baker among others.

Mattias IA Eklundh is Europe's answer to Steve Vai and in my humble opinion, the most innovative guitarist around. He currently fronts the band Freak Kitchen and has also released 2 absolutely crazy, guitar-centric solo albums. He's also guested on a number of Soilwork albums. The drummer is Zoltan Csorz (hungarian) who Jonas is pretty crazy about right now! Paco Sery and an ex-zappa drummer were also being considered by Jonas for this tour, finally its Zoltan.
