2012, Lover Under Cover are a brand new band from Sweden feat. Mikael Erlandsson (Last Autumn's Dream) that combine elements of Coldspell, Last Autumn's Dream, Treat and many more great Scandinavian Rock bands. The band was formed by Mikael Carlsson and this highly talented quartet are poised to shake the very foundations of melodic hard rock.
The catchy, hook-laden Melodic Hard Rock music and Erlandsson's raspy vocals undoubtedly will let you think of Last Autumn's Dream.
But this band gives Mikael the chance to get his pipes around more rocking tunes.
Strong melodies and harmonies, attractive choruses, and slick guitar licks abound on "Set the Night on Fire".
Love Under Cover can deliver heavier melodic rock as on "My Best Friend" or Angels Will Cry" or simply be effortlessly smooth AOR on "Too Good to Be True".
There's even a cover of an old great Swedish hit song by Secret Service, "Flash In The Night".
The contagious tunes in "Angels Will Cry" and "Hero", are both fine examples of modern melodic AOR.
On the rocking "Who Needs Love" and "Crazy for You" is where noticeably Erlandsson is able to expand his range than in LAD, hitting higher notes than he usually does.
The album ends with the only ballad on the CD, "A Nice Day", very well arrangend and performed.
Lover Under Cover are a band to look out for in 2012 and if well-crafted melodic rock of the highest order is what you crave for then this is an essential purchase.
