From Frontiers:

SARAYASIGN is a cinematic melodic hard rock band, headquartered in Örebro, Sweden. With guitar driven roots from the late 70’s and the cinematic experience of the 21st Century, layered with strings and storytelling driven, melody-focused songs with an edge, the listener will be in for a treat.

Formed in late 2020, with their debut album “Throne Of Gold” released in May 2022, Sarayasign is a concept driven, cinematic, melodic hard rock band that aims for the same experience often felt through films, for they believe that music can propel a narrative and take the listener into unexplored dreamlike and emotional territory. Through the lens and the voice of the storyteller depicted in their lyrics and the atmospheric music and soundscapes of their world called Saraya, created by band member Jesper Lindbergh, Sarayasign wants you to close your eyes and enjoy the journey they will take you on.

"The Lion's Road" is the band’s sophomore release, the first for the Frontiers label. The songs, or shall we say stories, on the upcoming album are directly connected to and a continuation of the initial eight stories told on the debut album "Throne Of Gold". Transcending time and space, like a lost treasure in the Swedish melodic hard rock scene, with some of the most outstanding musical visionaries and craftsmen the scene has to offer comes a beautifully crafted trajectory that reaches beyond traditional melodic hard rock. Introducing cinematic soundscapes and with the mesmerizing stories that take place in the land of SARAYA, SARAYASIGN brings something new and fresh to the table.

With stellar guitar riffs and haunting melodies and arrangements from childhood dreams merged with Sarayasign’s own twist of cinematic hard rock, the band is able to offer something new that still has strong liaison with the classic sounds.

Pretty solid album. Can't say much more either way about it, but it's solid. No keepers from me from it, but I didn't dislike it.

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
