Background
Two years ago, Swedes Art Nation were signed to AOR Heaven and had their first CD 'Revolution' released. I remember reviewing it and giving it a solid 90/100 rating. Sicne then, the band have come back into the picture, with a new label (local Gothenburg based Gain) and a new bassist Rebecka Tholerus. Lead singer Alexander Strandell also did a cameo appearance with fellow Swedish AORsters Creye, but Art Nation is his day-job, and album #2 'Liberation' lands in the early part of 2017. I guess it's hard to avoid the H.E.A.T. comparison, and it was one I made when reviewing their debut. However, the songs on 'Liberation' are quite varied. Different styles, tempo and colourings of instrumentation. Ultimately, they sound less of a pure AOR band and sit square in the middle of the melodic hard rock genre. Likeable band, but really need to deliver a barnstormer to dig deep into the consciousness of melodic rock fans long-term.
