The Night Flight Orchestra
The Ghost thread made me think some forum members might enjoy this band. It is a side project of members of swedish metal bands who are reviving late ‘70s-early ‘80s AOR: think of a weird mix of Foreigner, Russ Ballard, 80s Rainbow, Toto and Survivor, among others. They have the style down pat, and whiile the result is obviously cheesy and half-serious, these guys are excellent musicians and the songwriting is incredibly catchy.
They have already released three albums, and there’s a fourth coming soon. Here are a few tracks - thoughts ?
Midnight Flyer and Sad State of Affairs, off the last album:
Transatlantic Blues off the 1st album (I really like this song)
Preview single off the upcoming album:
