    Mysterious (This Time It's Serious)
At an early age, MARCEL JACOB discovered that he possessed the talent for playing guitar, bass and writing songs.
Marcel started his musical career playing together with YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and in a band called FORCE; (which would later become EUROPE). With Force, he co-wrote the songs "The King Will Return" and "Scream Of Anger" with JOEY TEMPEST, the later which would remain a live favorite amongst Europe fans and that the band continue to perform live still today.
Marcel recorded the studio album "MARCHING OUT" with Yngwie and remained for 2 world tours from 1984-86, that also included the classic live video release LIVE IN JAPAN ’85. Marcel headed back to Sweden in ’86 to find out that the guitarist JOHN NORUM just departed from the band Europe and was looking for members to complete his solo band. Marcel joined and started writing songs for Norum's first release "TOTAL CONTROL".
After a successful album and tour, the idea was to get started on a new album for Norum but he was to follow up on an idea to work with GLENN HUGHES instead. Marcel then decided to record his own album . Demos went out to various record companies and shortly Marcel had a record deal in place. Marcel contacted JEFF SCOTT SOTO in the US who was with him in Yngwie's band years earlier. Soto joined and the album could be completed and Marcel named his new band to TALISMAN.
