Solid AOR/Melodic Rock... surprised there hasn't been more chatter about this one. Just ordered the CD from his website. 

Terje Eide Official Website


Hailing from Bergen, Norway, TERJE Eide (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist & producer) first captured the public ear at age 16, as singer, guitarist and songwriter. His musical career began in earnest a year later, after winning a local talent contest. He later enjoyed a stint with the band Heaven & Hell, a rock institution in Bergen in the 80s. In 1986 he won the Norwegian National Rock Championship on national TV with the band The Heat. He started his own band a few years later.
In 2000’s Terje started a studio project that later on became ON THE RISE. A demo was made in early 2001 which immediately raised the interest of Frontiers Records who signed the project in June 2002. The debut album “On The Rise” was released in 2003, one of the finest Melodic Rock / AOR platters of that time. A few years later, Terje put together the songs on the long awaited follow-up album, entitled “Dream Zone”.
Now 2023, TERJE will release his solo album titled “Recalibrate“, a dynamic collection of stylized AOR tunes and polished melodic rockers served with a fresh sound production.
This is really well crafted Scandinavian stuff in the vein of Spin Gallery, 101 South, Grand Illusion, some Blanc Faces, Toto, and of course, On The Rise.

Not only there’s some wonderful Eighties pumping riffs and atmospheres all over “Recalibrate”, but also lovely lyrics. As example, ”Play It Loud” is an homage to the beginnings of rock music, bridging the old with the new. It comments on the transformation from analog to digital, reminiscing the joyful tactility of a vinyl, yet acknowledging the new era of streaming. The track celebrates that in times of change, the power and love of music never changes.

Pretty decent album throughout. Nothing that I'll take away from it, to be honest, but it's solid at what it is.
