Anders Jansson – Losing Journey Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising progressive metal artist, ANDERS JANSSON, from Australia. We have reviewed his latest track, LOSING JOURNEY, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Anders Jansson is a promising melodic/progressive metal artist I discovered through Submithub submissions about three months ago with his third single, Losing Journey, which was released not long ago in 2020. The artist is officially making releases since 2018. He has started his career with a single called; Lost Heart (2018), continued with two more singles, C.A.R. (2018), and Losing Journey (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Anders Jansson is a talented artist who shows incredible potential with his ideas, structures, guitar playing, intelligent songwriting and advanced musicianships skills. This was the first time I heard about him, and I was quite blown away with the level of expertise in his masterpiece, Losing Journey. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I am a huge progressive metal fan. Anders, in this way, was like a badass combination of everything I love about metal. I can hear he has huge Opeth, John Petrucci (Dream Theater), Ihsahn, classical music, and technical metal influences in his music. Honestly, when you look at his album artworks, images, or social media pages, none of them show anything positive, any professionalism about him. This, I am afraid, surely plays a big disadvantage to his artistic presence.

Losing Journey is an epic track, an 8 minutes long journey which immediately pulls the listener into its dark but beautiful world. Almost nothing standard about this song, everything has its beautiful complexity. The song starts with full aggression, then brings you to a long melodic section. Anders’s acoustic parts and vocal mix immediately reminded me of one of the greatest metal albums in metal historyWatershed by Opeth. So many things in common with songs like Burden, and some other Opeth tracks. Also, I don’t want anybody to get me wrong here. His Opeth influence is as it should be, nothing too much.

On the other hand, he has blended his influences in a very smart way, focusing everything that he is good at, such as guitar playing, instrumentation, and orchestration. Anders Jansson is surely much more than what this project is showing us. He is an advanced musician with lots of experience and knowledge about general music and of course about metal.


Technically, Losing Journey has exceptional standards in every way. Everything sounds clean, clear, atmospheric, natural, well recorded, balanced, mixed, and in great harmony. I am sure, so many people who are not into metal would be delighted to listen to his music. Because I believe that this is not just writing a song, this is what we actually call; composing, just like writing a scenario or a novel.

Furthermore, I am not sure if he worked with someone professional for his album recordings or production. It seems to me (from his photographs) he is the actual hero who is behind every single expertise behind this fantastic job.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am quite impressed by Anders Jansson. Another Swedish gentleman, another genius composer, and instrumentalist like Mikael Akerfeldt. I don’t know if there’s anything to do with the water they drink in Sweden, but Anders Jansson has everything I love and respect about metal music. As I said earlier, he shows huge potential with many different things here, but I was mostly blown away by his pure creativity above everything else. Losing Journey is one of the most impressive progressive metal songs I listened to lately. A kind of song that will make Anders and his family proud all their lives.
