Running Time:

Mikael Erlandsson from Gothenburg is one of the best singers/ songwriters in Sweden today. Beside LAD he has since 2006 been the front man in the Swedish super group Secret Service on live tours all over the world.
He has recorded four successful solo albums and his Japanese record company together with XTC Productions came up with the idea of putting him together with the fantastic guitar player Andy Malecek from the successful German hard rock band Fair Warning for an album project.
 
Mikael and Andy were both hooked by the idea and a plan for the album began to grow. Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli and John Leven of Europe-fame were asked if they were interested to join - which they did, and the band LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM was born in 2003!
Their self titled debut album resembled the best Scandinavian melodic rock heritage, but also added a distinctive Fair Warning influence coming from Malecek’s guitar playing.
The band lost 3/5's of their members due to the comeback of Europe. After the release of their second album bassist Marcel Jacob (Talisman) tragically died and was replaced by Nalley Påhlsson (Treat, Therion), and finally drummer Jamie Borger (Talisman, Treat, Secret Service) joined the band.
 
Andy Malecek unfortunately decided to leave the band in 2014 because of personal reasons and was replaced by Peter “Pac” Söderström, a genius guitar player that earlier used to add rhythm guitars to the band’s previous albums. Producer Ulf Wahlberg in the meantime had joined the band as keyboard player.
 
LAST AUTMN’S DREAM’s 12th album “Paintings” will be released in Europe in February 2015 and proposes as usual the combination of classic rock references with a modern sound. In October 2015 the band also made a successful performance at Rock City Festival in Nottingham.

Theander Expression - Wonderful Anticiptation

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjyhqipBZZ8
 

[]  []
 
Theander Expression is the AOR project by Swedish guitar player Andrée Theander, who started to work with the first album in 2012 and released it one year later. It was called ”Strange Nostalgia” after one of the songs and got critically acclaimed around the world of melodic rock in 2013.

Just over two years later the follow-up is finally here and it carries the title ”Wonderful Anticipation”, as a kind of an antonym to the frequently misinterpreted debut title.

Andrée has been producing and recording most of the album at the Theander studio, playing all the guitars and handles also most of the bass and keyboards, some percussion, drum programming and vocals.

Other musicians featured on the album are Herman Furin (Work of Art), Bengan Andersson (NIVA, Johan Randén), Kristofer von Wachenfeldt (Care of Night), Björn Lundqvist (Sunstrike, Twilight Force), Christian Eriksson (Sunstrike, Twilight Force), Erik Martensson (Eclipse, W.E.T), Sebastian Freij and Christoffer ”Foffe” Särnefält.

The record was mixed and mastered by Thomas ”Plec” Johansson at Panic Room Studios in the end of 2015 and the result is another high class rock record with classic melodies and a modern production, ready to hit the market in 2016.

Again, older title, but still necessary purchase if you’ve missed it up until now.
Last Autumn’s Dream have been regularly releasing records for a decade now. Amazing feat and even better that this – their 11th studio album is one of their best.
 
The sound and style from these guys never varies much and I’m good with that.
Songs is what counts, as the Scandi-AOR delivered by these guys is already on my list of favourites.
 
The soulful, high-ish vocals of Mikael Erlandsson and the kick ass band featuring Jamie Borger – drums, Nalle Pahlsson – bass and Peter Söderström – guitars just know how to deliver a good song.
Level Eleven features some of the strongest material in a while. There’s a little more emphasis on guitars, but even more focus on big hooks and memorable choruses.
And the pace is kept pretty pumped too.
 
The production could probably use a little work, but the songs are what make this album great.
There are no fillers whatsoever. Just track after track of catchy pure Scandi melodic rock/AOR.
Best for me – the uptempo AOR of Kiss Me, Follow Your Heart, Star, I'll B There 4 U and the ballads Fight The World and Made Of Stone.

LAD fans will have this already, but if you don’t…WHY NOT?!
Other AOR fans and those partial to some sweet Scandi melodic bliss, invest some time and money checking this out now.
