Press release from AOR Heaven:

Christian Rosander is a 22-year-old musician and songwriter from Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. He studied music for about 11 years, three of them in high school and two years in college. Since he was 14 years old, he’d been writing songs in the AOR/Melodic and Westcoast genre.

His main influences include Toto, H.E.A.T, Queen, Chicago, Def Leppard among others and have been an important inspiration for his musical work. Rosander’s musical work includes artists and bands such as Michael Ruff, Paulo Mendonca, Frank Ådahl and X-Romance.

On 26th June 2020, the guitar player will release his first solo album entitled “King Of Hearts”. It was written and produced by Christian Rosander between Autumn 2017 and early 2020. Peo Hedin took care of the mixing at Orange Monkey Studio.

Christians says: ”The recording of this album is a journey that began back in the autumn of 2017 when I was still studying at college. My roots emerge from the Classic Rock/ Hard Rock & Metal genres but when it came to writing my own songs, I’ve always been drawn to the Westcoast/AOR/Melodic Rock genre. During my time at school, all I did was practicing, especially Jazz standards. Somewhere along the way, I started to put more jazzier chords and harmonies into my songs, and that’s how I discovered my sound. The first song I wrote for this album was ”Can’t Let Go,” The rest of the tracks came as the time passed by.”

Track list: 1. Online, 2. She’s A Killer, 3. Don’t look Back, 4. Angelina, 5. Can’t Let Go, 6. Could This Be Love, 7. Price of Love, 8. Only For The Night, 9. Crossroads, 10. King of Hearts, 11. No Destination

Surprised this hasn't been lapped up by many here. Sounds like that type of AOR that has a big following here. 

I'm a bit lukewarm on it. I hear a lot more Toto than HEAT. But it's okay-ish.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
