REVIEW : Rockett Love, Galactic Circus (Pride & Joy Music Release: 22 September 2023)

Sweden is the main source of today's melodic rock/AOR sound! More and more great bands that re-produce the glory sound of the 80's, early 90's, are jumpin' out from Sweden. One of these bands is without any doubt Rockett Love

Since their creation back in 2015, these Swedes are making waves in the music industry. The band consists of members Daniel Samuelsson (lead vocals), Stefan Westerlund (guitars, vocals), Gustaf Eklund (lead guitars, vocals), Dennis Vestman (bass) and Fredrik Ahlin (drums, percussion, vocals). The album was produced by Stefan Westerland and Daniel Samuelsson at Meganoise studio, mixed & mastered by Erik MÃ¥rtensson (ECLIPSE, W.E.T.) at Mass Destruction Production and the artwork was created by Andre Beckston (Blekkmark Design Studio). 

The opener tune of "Never Look Back" rocks hard with a more metallic edge in it while in "Running Out Of Time" we are dealing with a killer and loud melodic rock gem. A big chorus line, some loud backing vocals and an up-beat rhythm that will knock you down! "Under The Gun" features a nice melody and with"On The Radio" and "The Angels Cry" we have two more strong and powerful melodic hard rock tunes that must be played on a maximum volume! 

Rockett Love is a band that combines perfectly the glory 80's classic hard rock sound with the new wave of Swedish melodic hard rock/AOR scene and the result is simply awesome!
