You’ve gotta hand it to the Swedes. No matter how many great albums they throw at us, there’s always more coming up right behind.
The latest purveyors of the fine classic AOR/melodic rock tradition is Care Of Night a group formed out of the demise of heavy rockers Seven Tears.
After a couple of lineup changes the band that would record this debut album was locked in.
 
What we have here is another wonderfully produced slice of Swedish AOR perfection.
Erik & Anders Wigelius (of fellow Swedish AOR favourites Wigelius) are responsible for the slick sound and mix, while the band themselves have written some classy traditional AOR songs with an updated feel so as not to date the music.
 
Vocalist Calle Schönberg has a touch of Peter Cetera in his tone, while the rest of the band simply delivers another lesson in ‘how Sweden does great music’.
Think Wigelius, State Of Salazar, Work Of Art, Houston, FM, the original Heat and you get the picture – happy, easy going pomp/pop AOR with layers of vocals and keyboards in that uptempo feel good style we all love.
The metal roots from a couple of the guys means that there’s some extra punch on occasion here, but the majority is very commercial AOR.
 
The free flowing lushness of Cassandra and Heart Belongs gets the album off to a perfect start. But it doesn’t stop there, with Those Words equally catchy and a big ballad Dividing Lines delivering sentiment in spades, even throwing in some saxophone.
Say A Prayer is impossibly catchy in that Work Of Art style of AOR; Please Remember adds a bit of tempo; Give Me Strength reminds me of British rockers FM and Say You Will is a 7 minute epic to close out the album, featuring a soft acoustic guitar and lead vocal until near the 5 minute mark when the band kicks in for a raucous climax.
 

You got it folks – if you’re a paid up member of the Swedish Ministry Of Melodic Rock – then you know what to do.
Another wonderful example of a genre that refuses to grow old and die.

When Swedish Heavy Metal band Seven Tears disbanded in 2009, three of the members, Kristofer von Wachenfeldt (keyboards), Jonathan Carlemar (guitars) and Fredrik Lager (bass) wished to carry on their musical endeavours.
 
Linus Svensson (drums) and Carl-Johan “Calle” Schönberg (vocals) rehearsed with the band way back in 2010, and eventually Linus became the band’s drummer. Singer Jens Andersson later joined the band and thus was the first line-up of CARE OF NIGHT complete. The band nicked their name from a poetry by Swedish poet Bruno K. Öijer, did some local shows and recorded two songs for a digital release.
 
In 2013, the band once again transformed as Fredrik and Jens both left the band. Jonas Rosengren became the new bass player while the Swedes still were in need of a lead vocalist. Calle Schönberg decided to join them permanently and completed the second and latest line-up of CARE OF NIGHT. Erik & Anders Wigelius (from Wigelius-fame) agreed to produce and mix a 4-song E.P. in 2013. The songs showcased the band’s song-writing abilities and with a powerhouse production, the E.P. became recognised and appreciated from fans of AOR/Melodic Rock around the globe at the Autumn of 2013.
 
CARE OF NIGHT once again turned to the Wigelius brothers to record their debut album “Connected” and signed a deal with AOR HEAVEN for a January 2015 release. The band is ready to serve a slice of sparkling hi-tech melodies, with amazing vocalist Calle Schönberg at the front.
