Melodic/Hard Rock/AOR

The fifth instalment from AOR/melodic rockers Lionville ‘So Close To Heaven’ is the stunning latest addition to the bands discography.

Vocalist Lars Säfsund (of Work of Art and Enbound) once again shows off his incredible vocal skills alongside another notable AOR vocalist, Robbie LeBlanc, in the first track, ‘This Time’. The band also covers Richard Marx’s ‘Arrow Through My Heart’, giving the song a refreshing revival whist also doing the original justice.

Two tracks previously released as singles: ‘Cross My Heart’ and ‘True Believer’ gave us a tease of what was to come with the full release, and it definitely does not disappoint. Every song is unique; it’s upbeat, it’s interesting, it’s definitely something you want to listen to when you need a pick me up. With brilliant production, alongside the incredible musicianship and song writing, this album is a must for any AOR/Melodic Rock fans and a sure sign to check out their other works.

The title track ‘So Close To Heaven’ rounds off the album perfectly with it’s upbeat melody and leaves the listener wanting nothing more than to press replay!
