Swedes BAD RADIATOR start this year with their fifth album “BR V”. Formed in the ’80s under the name Grace, these seasoned musicians have been in the business for more than 30 years now. The music of Bad Radiator has not aged at all. There is something special about their mix of rock, pop, melodic rock and AOR crafted with a pristine production.
All songs are lifted by Mikael Lundgren’s voice – he’s like Mikael Erlandsson but with a classic rock&pop twist. This is enhanced by guitar riffs from Klas Bergvall that work fine with rather 90s influenced keyboard touches, and a fine production. Bass and drums take their duties seriously and it’s all a smooth machinery working as one mechanism.
“BR V” is just another smooth, perfectly produced album by this quality band. It’s Scandinavian stuff from every corner, and if you love the Eighties / Nineties refined melodies, this is for you.
