From melodicrock.com:

 

MelodicRock Records is very excited to be able to announce the signing of new Swedish band S.A.Y., featuring two veteran artists under the new band name, reflecting their decision to record a melodic hard rock album together.
S.A.Y. is guitarist Jan Åkesson and singer Peter Grundström, musical partners since 1984 and teamed inStoneLake for six studio albums from 2006-2013.
Deciding to record an album with power and finesse, but in a more commercial melodic vein, Jan and Peter settled upon a new name for the project – S.A.Y.
S.A.Y. will release their debut album “Orion” via MelodicRock Records/Cargo Distribution on May 22.
The album contains 11 tracks of polished and powerful melodic rock and features the distinctive vocals of Peter Grundstrom and the hard edged guitar work of Jan Akesson; which will immediately bring comparisons to TNT, Westworld and Final Frontier.
S.A.Y. are:
Peter Grundström – Vocals
Jan Åkesson – Guitars, Keyboards, Bass, Backing Vocals
With: Jens Westberg – Drums
“Orion” is set to be one of the noted debut albums of 2015.
Time to check out one of the tracks from 'Orion', the anthemic "Broken Wings":

Wow, that is very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very TNT-sounding, which is not a bad thing, at all. Quite an excellent thing, in fact.

 

So am I the only one who has never heard of these guys in my life? Or StoneLake? Without hearing a note I can tell from the band name that I'd hate the band, but does anyone have any thoughts on the band? I assume it's nothing like this? Anyway, this looks like a nice, unexpected release to definitely check out.

TNT and also sounds like Final Frontiers with some of the vocals. Sounds pretty decent from the sample track.

 

2015 is a slow year so far. I've only bought 2 discs to date, I'm starting to crave new music.

I've heard it and find it to be pretty good, but I just couldn't find any real highlights on it. I'll definitely spin it a lot more, and hope something stands out a little bit.
