OSUKARU – Salvation (CD)

Swedish melodic rockers Osukaru, formed around former EYE member Oz Osukaru, have now returned with their third release. The first one was a bit lacking in the vocal department, while this was solved on the second release. Now they are back with new singer Chris Tiann. At a first glance he sounds really good. The voice is there, no doubt. However, there are some pitch problems here and there that makes me cringe a bit, which is a pity. The production is fat and nice. The song material feels quite strong and good. A bit strange, abrupt ending on the otherwise nice track Highway To The Stars and I would have fixed the bum notes in the guitar solo of Hot Blooded Woman, though. Great intro riff of City Lights, which reminds me a bit of Giant. Good, solid melodies and an album that will attract fans of H.E.A.T, Dynazty, Danger Avenue etc.
