Fly high, Sweden! Fly high!

Sebastian Roos (vocals), Erik Heikne (Guitars), Henrik Sproge (keyboards), Niclas Lindblom (bass) and Magnus Jacobson (drums). Names that just make you think of a place that produces more Melodic Rock than any other country in the whole world. A place that, though it's not that touched and blessed by the sun as others are, is more enlightened than other so called "civilized" countries, both in terms of respect towards the environment and in regards to social rights and political stands. To be frank, there's no Western country that can compete with the human sustainability standards of Sweden at the moment, except for Denmark, maybe.

That said, music can't help to flourish and thrive in such an environment and also it's no wonder people in Sweden start playing and dedicating themselves to music since they are very young, literally absorbing any kind of influences coming from all over the world and reinterpreting them in superb and ultra-catchy ways. Furthermore, they are not subjected to being segregated or bound to music/cultural niches/clichés like in the UK or USA, for instance. Let me put it this way; this is the music that even an average Swedish family with kids (not necessarily dressed in black and pink striped spandexes) would normally enjoy on a sofa in front of the TV while having a cosy mushroom soup.

Now, do you really need to be a Metal weirdo to enjoy the pure majesty of songs like 'Friendly Fire' or 'The Magician'? This is just a form of higher music sensitivity that can so easily merge the magniloquence brought by the inherent classical roots of Metal – Johann Sebastian Bach, Niccolò Paganini, Richard Wagner, Ludwig van Beethoven, Bela Bartok, to name a few – with the most blatant and cheekiest side of Pop music, from Duran Duran or Lady Gaga. 'Savage Heart', with its charming and bombastic chorus, or 'Pain And Passion', featuring an epic gait that results in a hedonistic, polyphonic vocal harmony, definitely converge to my point.

But, if you still have your doubts, the list of classy acts is long here and I could also mention 'Night Moves' and 'Walking In Shadows', in case you're looking for some thrills in between The Poodles, H.E.A.T. and Reckless Love sounds. Fly high, Sweden! Fly high!
