EXPLORER is a melodic progressive thematic art rock album by new Swedish group Sonic Desolution. There's a bit of classic prog reflecting on the different phases and insights of life across eight chapters. Three main vocalists cover the wide range of dynamics of each song. There are the hoarse soulful vocals of Jan Johansen, in balance with the female vocals of Annica Svensson for the more subtle parts, and occasional heavy rock vocals by Mads Clausen (ex Biscaya, Timecode Alpha) for the most intense parts. The complex yet melodic music is performed by great renowned players: drummer Morgan gren (Devin Townsend, Dweezil Zappa, Kaipa), bass player Ken Sandin (Kee Marcello, Uli Jon Roth, Vinnie Moore); guitar player Magnus Berglund (Arctic Rain), Peter Lazar (Timecode Alpha), plus a few guesting session performers.
