Profile ailing from Örebro, Slyside released their one and only work independently back in 1993 with local distribution only. Without major outside help they managed to write and produce five excellent high octane melodic rockers that stylistically fall somewhere in between the typical Scandi AOR sound of Dream Police, Wild Force and Talisman.

Although there really are no weak tracks to be found, my personal highlights have to be the powerful opener “Sweet Osesssion”, with has just the right mix of guitars and keys and a catchy hookline along the lines of Glory or Rat Bat Blue, “Let’s Go Crazy”, a furious guitar-driven uptempo Melodic Hardrocker à la Dream Police or Boycott which features big backing gang vocals and “Liar” (ultra melodic hook laden rocker à la Snakes in Paradise meets Dalton). You’ve probably heard bigger productions but for an Indie it’s really good and above average for sure!
