We all love Sweden rock. After all, these days, Sweden = Glam. So when our own Metalboy! found Danger Avenue, he just had to share the Sweden rockers. He emailed me about the band and also left some comments on this site about them, so of course I had to investigate.
Danger Avenue are pretty cool. The band formed in 2004 in Sweden and they consider their genre "melodic rock." I would agree they are not 100% Glam because there are some definite AOR components to their sound, but still, the guitar solos are there. Danger Avenue say they are influenced by KISS, the Scorpions and Queen.
When it was time for Danger Avenue to release a full-length album, the band members called on producer Roberth Olausson. He has worked with Hardcore Superstar. So, the album Long Overdue is out and it has big hooks and solos. Some of the song lyrics are a bit lacking, but the band has true room for growth and that is key: that means there is talent. They just need to be careful and not get sucked into the whole "modern radio-rock" vortex. Check it out and you be the judge:
