Work Of Art is what AOR music is all about! Have you ever dreamt of soaring melodies, heavenly hooklines and a musical technique to die for? Then these Swedish boys have it all for you! This band was put together for the first time in 1992 when Herman Furin and Robert Sall met while attending the SÖL school of music. However it took them about 15 years to convince singer Lars Säfsund to come in to the project full time and devote his time and efforts to the amazing songs the two of them wrote during the years.
Considering that most people think of AOR as the wimpy side of rock, Work of Art have certainly turned it up a notch and have kicked some serious arse with at least five tracks having major and heavy riffs pushing things along, with ‘Eye of The Storm’ being a perfect example. ‘ The Great Fall’ has an instantly sing-able chorus and will stay with you for days on end. ‘Emilie’ is their let’s use a girl in the little homage to Toto, and is another classic slice of 80s AOR. ‘Castaway’ ticks some big boxes, very heavy and melodic, and hits you right between the eyes
