You might have already heard of the Transsiberian Orchestra, but departing from the Swedish night sky comes the Night Flight Orchestra.

While TSO is mainly an over the top broadway style musical with more pomp than you’ll find at a gas station, the Swedish night flyers are more of the opless kind as they shamelessly pastiche their heroes from the eighties. You might know Björn Strid and David Andersson as the vocalist and axeman of warriors of modern death Soilwork, but their hero worship doesn’t include Autopsy or Death this time. I didn’t expect them to have a penchant for 80s styled hard rock, but here you are. Swathed in catchy synth, tunes these 10 songs are really radio friendly,  Realistic cassette deck radio friendly, that is.  If you’ve got a soft spot for classic rock like Foreigner, Toto or Europe, you really owe it to yourself to listen to this record. Pure 80s nostalgia bliss.
