CD REVIEW: LOVE EQUALS WAR by Care Of Night




LOVE EQUALS WAR by Care Of Night
(AOR Heaven)

Whew! I am so glad that Swedish based melodic band, Care Of Night have returned with their sophomore release, 'Love Equals War', another superb example of high quality melodic rock music. Paying homage to bands like Journey, Giant and Toto while making their own mark and taking their rightful place as one the premiere melodic rock bands of our time. Comprised of, Calle Schönberg on vocals, Kristofer von Wachenfeldt on keyboards, Vocals, Viktor Öström Berg on guitars and bass and Linus Svensson on drums. Their songs are simply amazing combining elements such as smooth and memorable vocal melodies, great guitar solos and killer production. The whole album is very strong but some highlights include the cracking opening track, "Your Perfection", the majestic grace of, "She Leads You On", "Hit", the hook laden chorus of "Please Don't Leave" and the brilliant guitar riffs and memorable chorus of "We'll Find A Way". Care Of Night is one of the rare bands that you can throw on the earbuds, shut the lights out & just get lost in the music. Overall, 'Love Equals War' is essential listening for anyone that loved their debut, 'Connected' and is highly recommended to fans of intense melodic rock.Tony @ The Dedicated Rocker Society
