Profile A Swedish melodic hard rock masterpiece, an absolute must-own for any fan of the genre.  The album was produced by Ole Evenrude (Evenrude, Return, Wig Wam) who also contributed to the song writing, including the smash hit “Rock’n Roll City”.

Following in the footsteps of just about every band to hail from the great nation of Sweden, Swedish Erotica released an outstanding melodic rock album. Debuting in 1989, one really has to wonder why these guys never achieved the success of Europe, or any other major European band.

The mighty Mats Leven lending his heavenly vocal chords to some first class riff heavy sleaze metal. You can almost envision the lush harmonies, sing-along-choruses, and great riffs that pepper this release. The songs on this record are all radio ready, and you can easily imagine the vast majority of these songs being hit worthy. The sound on “Swedish Erotica” is undoubtedly late 80’s pop metal, with a distinct Swedish blend. Just about every song on the album is good, but here are my favorites. “We’re Wild Young And Free”, “Love Me Or Leave Me”, “Hollywood Dreams”, “Loaded Gun” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll City”.

Album with a sound that reminds one of a cross between Rock/Glam/Sleaze merchants such as Tigertailz/Pretty Boy Floyd/Loud ‘N’ Nasty/Easy Action/Wratchild.  Not to be missed!!!
