Press release from Frontiers Music:

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of SNAKES IN PARADISE to the label for the release of a new album in early 2017!

Snakes In Paradise are a Stockholm based band which melds a powerful mixture of influences of 70's era British Hard Rock with American AOR and a blues-y singer who really sings from the soul with five amazing musicians and world class production!

With three original studio albums under their belt released at the end of the 90’s and early 00’s, the band has recently reunited, playing live at the Rockweekend Festival in Stockholm last February, and now they are ready to unleash a brand new album!

“And it was until this day, that the rumors became true… There will be a new SNAKES IN PARADISE album,” says singer Stefan Berggren. ”With our old albums taking a life of their own we have to thank all the fans and people who made it happen. Guess the hard work paid off in the end. And for the first time we are all in alignment with the right time to release it, with record label Frontiers Music Srl. And we believe it is the right label for our music. The new record will be in the shops in the beginning 2017. Stay tuned!!”

Oh, that's very cool. A very good band who kind of faltered a bit at the end there, but their releases through the late 90's were of a very high quality. I look forward to their return very much.

From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the much welcome comeback album from Swedish melodic rocker SNAKES IN PARADISE, entitled “Step into the Light” on September 14th.

Pre-order the album HERE: http://radi.al/SnakesInParadise

Snakes In Paradise came to the attention of melodic rock fans in 1993 when they acted as the back-up band for Mark Free. The band introduced the world to their original material soon thereafter when their self-titled debut album was released in 1994. Produced by the late Brett Walker (Alias, Jeff Paris, Mitch Malloy), the album showcased a combination of British hard rock mixed with American AOR delivered by a soulful blues rock singer and four outstanding musicians. It was truly a dynamic record with immediately hummable melodies while simultaneously not sacrificing the heaviness and power of hard rock.

The band’s second album, “Garden of Eden” followed in 1999 and was inspired by Whitesnake’s more popular and most well-known material, thus satisfying fans of the musical formula on the band's debut. After the release of “Dangerous Love” in 2002, another album chock full of hooks and harmonies, the band called it a day.

Singer Stefan Berggren wound up working with Company of Snakes (a band formed by former Whitesnake members Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, and Neil Murray), Lee Kerslake (ex-Uriah Heep, Ozzy Osbourne) and Razorback for a stretch of time, but in 2016, the members of Snakes In Paradise reconvened to discuss making more music together. "I started to get more and more questions from journalists about a new Snakes In Paradise album,” tells singer Stefan Bergreen. “I was also asked to write some songs in the Snakes style by a few different musicans. One of them was Alessandro Del Vecchio, with whom I did an album called 'Revolution Road'. On that album, some of the Snakes guys were guests. The album turned out great and eventually, Snakes started to get lots of show offers. One being from the Rockweekend in Stockholm. After the show, I decided to send one of the songs I wrote to Serafino, the President of the Frontiers label. He liked what he heard and offered us a record deal immediately. And here we are."

“Step Into The Light” is the band's first album in 16 years and again melds the melodies of classic US AOR of the 80’s with some truly exquisite hard rock. Stefan Berggren’s voice is better than ever and the songwriting is more refined than ever. “Fans should expect a Snakes In Paradise album with a familiar sound,” continues Stefan Bergreen. "Not much has changed musically from the first albums, really. Still the same drum kit and same guys playing together. That makes this our signature sound, but perhaps this time a bit beefier and more mature. We are better musicians now and with a little more depth to the songwriting."

"We always have a special magic when we play and write together,” concludes Stefan. "We poured our hearts into this album and we hope you like it as much as we do. This could be the strongest album of all the albums we have done. We also hope to see the fans on the road some day soon!”

Solid track, maybe a little mellower but overall new song sounds similar in style to their prior material

Pretty decent stuff. As usual, there's good and there's bad. All coming together for an okay album. These guys and House of Shakira, for some reason, always go hand in hand for me. Same era, and same kind of albums. When they're melodic/AOR they're really quite good, but when they're not - which is generally half their albums - they're not so great. 

A few good songs here, namely 'Liza,' 'Love on the Otherside' and 'Silent Sky.' Plenty of other decent songs too - not a bad album and in all honesty, it's just nice to hear them back.

I like this album, Strfan's voice still brings good emotions.

Why did they choose a cover so similar to slide it in?

    • Don't know what to make of that one. Not bad. 
    • That one is okay, but doesn't have me rushing to pre-order.
    • Hahaha the video is sad. Agree with the comments above, it must be his first ever video. Only the drummer looks cool in the video. That said, the most important thing is the song..and it is a very nice song. Ya again as you guys mentioned the chorus could have been better coz the verses are perfect but it is what it is...I ll take it.
    • No, it's definitely not. For the record, though; looking beyond what the media jams down your throat, I don't personally find him misogynistic to a degree that offends me at all; I sure as hell don't find him to be racist (seems like it's the go-to tag for someone who might just call a thing or two for what it is from time to time). As for being a liar... probably true, and that's different to absolutely zero politicians in all of history. Anyway, I agree... not the time or place. I actually hate politics and rubbish political discussions. But I hate the media more and I hate just going along with an opinion without thinking about it for yourself even more than the media!   
    • I can't for the life of me understand how someone can have any time for  a misogynistic, racist c*nt, who's a pathological liar, with so many skeletons in his closet that a plague burial ground would look threadbare in comparison. It has nothing to do with  sheep mentality. It has to do with having sound values in life.  But, we'd better leave it there, because this isn't a politics forum.     
    • Phenomena - The Complete Works (3 CD) The Answer - Raise A Little Hell (2 CD) The Answer - Revival (2 CD) Black Star Riders - The Killer Instinct (2 CD) The Amorettes - White Hot Heat Circle II Circle - The Middle Of Nowhere + 1 Crystal Pistol - s/t
    • Agreed. But if you have a view that makes you look really stupid and is something to be embarrassed about, probably best just to keep it to yourself and sing about vaginas instead. For example, if you follow a religion the worst thing in the world you can do, imo, is publicise it... especially in a song. It just makes you look stupid.  In. My opinion, of course. But it's the same with that stupid Kryptonite song, which is preaching to forsake all sense of logic and just allow every human being into everywhere. Australia only has 25 million people? WHAT?! Even though you can't move in the fucking place, let's let everyone in and have 50 million by the week's end!!! says mr singer of Kryptonite. Well I never had an issue with the guy at all in the past, but now I look at him different - in an irritating, stupid kind of way. Anyway, to each their own. Everyone's got their own view n' stuff, but it just seems to sound even more stupid in a song if you have a view that is very polarising.  As for my percentage on who has a problem or not with Trump... I agree. I probably did get that wrong. Much more than 50% of people are sheep and follow what their favourite celebrity or the media is telling them without actually thinking for themselves. For the record, I don't really have much of an opinion on Trump because I don't care enough about it all to get involved. But I definitely like him more than I dislike him and think the outcry against him is just a pathetic banquet of sheep falling over themselves to fit in. Personally.
    • 50 % (50+ even!)have no issue with Trump? Seriously doubt those numbers, but ok, then the lyrics shouldn't bother them either. It only bothers those who like him, I would say.  The arts is a great way to express ideas, ideals etc. Artists shouldn't censor themselves just because some might disagree.  To only listen/read/talk to stuff/people you agree with is stupid.
