REVIEW : Arkado – Open Sea, (Pride & Joy Music, Release: 23.02.2024)

To be honest, I was very curious about this release; firstly, it is the amazing cover artwork by Nello Dell’Omo (Mecca, Jim Peterik, Silent Tiger, Stan Bush etc) and secondly the participation of Philip Lindstrand on vocals and guitar were two things that grabbed my attention. Also, the fact that ARKADO is hailing from Sweden and in the press release wrote melodic rock is always a good sign of what's to expect.
