STATE OF SALAZAR - All The Way [Japanese Edition] (2014)

STATE OF SALAZAR - All The Way [Japanese Edition] (2014) full

When some time ago at 0dayrox we presented exclusively STATE OF SALAZAR and their indie first recording, we knew they were destined for big things. The time has coming.
"All The Way" is the full length debut album from the Swedish quintet to be released on Frontiers Records next week, just appeared in Asia through Marquee / Avalon.

"All The Way" is pure AOR / Melodic Rock gold.
That should be enough, and finalize the review here. 
Oh, and to tell you this is a mandatory purchase if you are fan of classic Toto, Styx, Journey, Survivor and new wonders from the genre like Lionville, Work Of Art, etc.

Singer and songwriter Marcus Nygren sounds much like original Toto singer Bobby Kimball, and musically, the rest of the guys in State Of Slaazar have all the skills that made these genres so great; large melodies and vocal harmonies, vibrant guitar solos and a proper amount of keyboards for atmosphere and accent. 
The usual suspects of catchy hooks in lyrics and arrangements abound, especially in the choruses. The result is a large and lush sound that could fill those Eighties stadiums.

From superb AOR gems like "I Believe In You", "Filed Of Dreams" and "Eat Your Heart Out" to Melodic Rock diamonds such as "All The Way", "Marie", "Let Me Love" and "Catastrophe", this is the type of music to make your mood soar. 
Every song has that pure, unadultered AOR / arena rock feel, and every aspect from the songwriting to the musicianship to the vocals to the production is absolutely top notch. 
State Of Salazar have down that polished, radio-friendly melodic rock sound perfectly, and they match it with a modern production and that distinctly Swedish sense of melody.

Rarely does a new band so completely capture the old school AOR / Melodic Rock sound like State Of Salazar has achieved on "All The Way".
You NEED this album. One of THE albums of the year.
