Release Date: 20 November 2015
Catalogue Number: ESM283



From Escape Music:

Naked was founded in early 2000 by Mats Stattin, and along with Peter he has been influenced by Rock bands of the 1980’s, in particular, Kiss, Along with Mats and Peter the line-up is completed by Tony Borg (Alien), Mikael Wikman Drums, and a well-respected Bass player Paul Logue (Eden’s Curse) as a special guest!

This quartet have come up with an album chock full of surprises that will appeal to fans of Scandinavian Hard Rock such as Treat, Alien, and Skagarack.

Naked do have their own identity and this shines through on the 12 tunes on offer here. Razor sharp riffs, layered keyboards and soaring vocals are the order of the day, all backed with a solid rhythm section, the sort you would expect from musicians of this calibre, a melodic rock dream!!

It’s really nice to see a new band rise up and inject a fresh slant on the melodic rock music scene; we think that you will warm to Naked in a very positive manner as they certainly have the ability to make their mark. This debut “End Game” is a great start to achieving their goal.


The band is:

Peter Sundvall – Lead and Backing vocals
Mats Stattin – Rhythm Guitar
Tony Borg – Lead Guitar, Keyboard Arrangements (Alien)
Paul Logue - Bass (Eden’s Curse)
Shuji Matsumoto – Fretless Bass on “End Of Eternity”

Jennie Jahns – guest vocals on Duet “end of eternity”

Sounds like the Scandi AOR we all fell in love with. I hope the rest holds up.

Yeah, I'd agree. Not so much on the Talon thing; I think they're a bit better than that. But I'd call it nice and leave it at that too. This reminds me a lot of the Reach CD from this year. They're both good solid young bands with some good touches, but I can't really see either album standing the rest of time. Nice albums, both of them.

Have to say I like this album (and Scandi AOR) and I've always liked Tony Borg's guitar playing.

Petri Vehviläinen (of Swedish Idol fame) was the singer in an early incarnation of Naked. I wonder if his alcohol problems led to his departure..?
