ONE DESIRE - Midnight Empire
SCORE - 97%
Finland’s One Desire are another artist in Scandinavia’s great take over of the melodic rock world that has been going strong for a decade now. Their debut was unbelievable, but this is next level stuff.
Heavier, more diverse, darker and more intense, Midnight Empire is a world class record with world class production and performances. Add in the godly vocals of André Linman and some powerful songs and a near perfect modern AOR record is yours.
The mid-album epic is worthy of worship, while it is surrounded by glorious uptempo, anthemic brilliance.
Short review as the album has been out there a while now, but if you haven’t checked this album out, there should be no further delay – go!
PS. Whoever decided the original cover art should be swapped out for the one used should get a good talking to.
