Label: MTM Music
Style: Melodic Hard Rock


Nightvision is a young Swedish melodic hard rock band, and this their self titled album is their debut album. All the members have had some experience in various bands before Nightvision.

Nightvision was introduced to MTM Music by H.B. Andersson (vocalist in Fatal Smile, ex-Token), and they were fast to pick up this up and coming Swedish Hard Rock act. Like we are used to from MTM Music this is melodic rock, but Nightvision do have their harder edges, and I actually think their harder stuff is where their strength lies ...

Mostly influenced by European hard rock acts like Magnum, PC 69, Europe etc. they deliver 11 strong songs and a short intro - this has to be one the better MTM releases this year, and I am pretty sure fans of melodic hard rock will find much pleasure with this album.

Nightvision is a pleasant surprise to me, and I think it's a nice and very listenable album, with it's heights and lows, vocalist Peter Högsberg is a almost typical Swedish vocalist for good and bad, he do remind me of Ray Gillen a lot. But the whole band is skilful and it shows in the song writing and playing - a good debut album ... do check it out.
