|For fans of Def Leppard, Scorpions & Journey. Swedish band Grand Design was formed in 2006 by vocalist/producer Pelle Saether. The band’s first 1st album "Time Elevation" was released in October 2009. The release gained massive success and was awarded ‘best album’ and ‘best song’ by BeRockRadio and received numerous top 10 positions for "best album 2009". Several concerts, including the prestigious FireFest in Nottingham, UK proved that Grand Design also deliver live. In 2017 the latest album "Viva La Paradise" was recorded. Continuing on the path of 2014s "Thrill Of The Night", the band feels this marks the strongest album to date. The same old melodic hardrock style and sound, but elevated and with a few new surprises.
