Description/Reviews:
“Explorer” is a melodic progressive thematic artrock album, by new Swedish group SONIC DESOLUTION. Reflecting on the different phases and insights of life, in eight chapters, there's a bit of classic prog, symph, pomp... even pop. Three main vocalists cover the wide range of dynamics of each song. There are the hoarse soulful vocals of Jan Johansen, one of the most well known solo artists in Sweden since decades, in balance with the female vocals of Annica Svensson for the more subtle parts, and occasional heavy rock vocals by Mads Clausen (ex-BISCAYA, TIMECODE ALPHA) for the most intense parts. The complex, yet melodic, music is performed by great renowned players (Harry Stouraitis at Album reviewz)
