REVIEW : Autumn’s Child - Starflower (Pride & Joy Music, Release Date : 20.01.2023)

For a musician such as Mikael Erlandsson you need no recommedations; I mean that if you are a die hard of the Euro melodic rock/AOR scene, then you should have to know Mikael. His works with Last Autumn's Dream as well as with his new band (AUTUMN'S CHILD) 'speak' for themselves.

REVIEW : GRAND, Grand (Frontiers Music s.r.l. Release: 21 October 2022)

Grand was formed in 2020 in the southern outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden. Vocalist Mattias Olofsson had always the will to release his own AOR project one day. In the fall of 2020, the stars finally aligned, when he came to know two fellow musicians who shared his passion for the AOR genre: guitarist and producer Jakob Svensson (Wigelius) and drummer Anton Martinez Matz. The trio joined forces soon after and Grand became a reality.
