Naked, a Swedish band born in 2000 and created by Mats Stattin (rythm guitar) with Peter Sundvall on vocals is finally seeing their debut "End Game" on the Escape Music record label.

With the renowned Tony Borg (Alien) on excellent guitar-, keyboard- and production duties, Mikael Wikman perfect on drums and Paul Louge (Eden’s Curse) brilliant on bass, End Game represent all the facets of Scandinavian Melodic Hard Rock in full flight!

With 12 truly sparkling songs, the Swedes display energy, enthusiasm and true creativity: such an abundance of melody, guitar solos and layers of fabulous keyboards irremediably makes me think of Alien or even TREAT or Europe. The sound of the record is enormous and very precise at the same time, the melodies are hyper catchy on all songs on offer here. Aim For The Heart is one of the centerpieces with its bright keyboards, enchanting backing vocals, the very particular guitar tone of Tony Borg- who ignites this whole album with his special fingering - really makes me think about the 1990 Alien album Shiftin’ Gear. He has the gift to make his instrument weep and his licks are always judicious, creating a great atmosphere.

And the rest of the songs are just as powerful: the freshness of the melodies of Blood Of My Blood, Leaving You Tonight, Still In Love and Love Ain’t No Game, the superb rhythm guitar of Mats Stattin who lets rip in full force on Born To Live For Love, Setting Sails and The Great War, without forgetting the superb vocal performance of Peter Sundvall – all this makes End Game an album off the beaten track, imposing a style of its own with a high degree of musicianship.

This fresh beautiful Swedish breath will be much talked about because what Naked is offering here is truly an insane album, a revelation for those who love energetic AOR. WOW!
