BLACK PAISLEY står nu skuldra vid skuldra med sina mer namnkunniga amerikanska kolleger i branschen, och när du lyssnar på ”Late Bloomer” inser du snart att de flåsar dem i nacken.
Men det blir ett gigantiskt leap när de vitaliserar en genre där tunga, fräcka gitarrer kombineras med smakfulla keyboards, intelligent låtskrivande och en unik känsla för melodier, refränger körarrangemang och ”hooks” som är rena rama flugpapperet.
Så det är dags att lyssna och bli nyförälskad i rock’nroll.
För det här bandet har den effekten: när du lyssnar på dem ringar de in dig på ett mycket delikat och förföriskt sätt.
Jag vet. För jag har varit rockjournalist i många år, till exempel under genrens gyllene år på 1980-talet. BLACK PAISLEY är ett av intressantaste banden jag någonsin hört.

IN THE CROSSHAIRS – Black Paisley
Hailing from Sweden Black Paisley are based in the capital Stockholm and are currently put their finishing touches to their debut album. It will be released towards the end of the Winter via the band’s own label and will be called The Late Bloomer.
They combine elements of Classic Rock, Melodic Rock and Modern Country. Rich deep blues infused vocals mixed with intricate guitar hooks, strong melodic flashes and effective backing vocals which will leave an indelible impression on listeners. With songs that are deeply emotional and undeniably uplifting I’m sure fans of melodic rock and AOR will enjoy this album immensely. If you’re a fan of Bryan Adams Black Paisley could be a fix that will tickle you in all the right places!
Formed out of the ashes of covers band StephMetal when the dream of releasing and performing their own songs led to the birth of Black Paisley in 2014 – the name comes from Ritchie Sambora’s fender signature guitar. It’s a debut album has been in the works for some time, writing and recording, which led the band to tongue in cheek call the album The Late Bloomer.

Black Paisley is a band that was formed back in 1998 as a cover band with a different name back then (StephMetal). It played several gigs in the UK, Netherlands, Sweden and Norway and built up a strong reputation around its name. For many years, the band wrote its own songs and it was a dream to release a full-length record.
The band took its name, Black Paisley, from Richie Sambora’s Fender signature guitar, and, in autumn 2014, the band started the process, recording in Sundsvall with producer JOHAN DEREBORN (Gaston, E-Type, Takida).
Finally, the dream came true for Black Paisley and the debut record "Late Bloomer" is finally a big reality!!!
From the first spin of "Late Bloomer", it's understood that we are dealin' with a solid record all the way. The sound here is moving across blues hard rock, classic hard rock with the necessary AOR-ish pinches and, at the end, it leaves a sweet taste in your ears. The vocals (Stefan Blomqvist) are powerful and emotional, the guitars are 'crunchy', melodic and, when needed, heavier while the rhythm section is solid. Sometimes the whole record reminds me a bit of Richie Sambora's second album "Undiscovered Soul" and that's a thing that I like!!
Highlights? I think that every single track here has something different to offer and, in general, the whole record flows perfectly and enjoyably from start to finish. The 'feeling' is the strongest point of the band 'cause every song speaks directly to your heart and soul. I think that it's unnecessary to review every tune here separately and the last thing that I have to add is that, if you are a fan of the rock scene in general, then buy this album and you won't regret it!!!!
Rating : 8,7/10
As I press the play button and hear the first notes of "Run Run Run", I started
headbanging unconciously! (laughs!) Amazing sound for the guitars, rhythmic bass
and drums, excellent crystal-clear vocals and an amazing driving melodic hard rock
rhythm are its secrets!
Coming right up in melodic yet calmer rhythms is "Way To Something". Travelling music
guitars with beautiful riffs and amazing crystal-clear vocals dominate the track.
These two tracks have provided an excellent start to the album!
Let's see what awaits us up ahead...
The third track is "Easy", which essentially is a melodic rock diamond,
- it will remind you of Bryan Adams at his best. Excellent track!
Continuing the album in the same quality footsteps, we have "Ordinary Day", "Kickin' "
and "This Is My Day". Finally, closing the album melodically, we have "It Ain't Over"
and "Coming Home", with the winner of this 'battle' being the former, due to its
beautiful guitars, rough vocals and amazing rhythm.
In summary? What we have here is definitely an album that is a melodic rock diamond,
coming from the amazing musical scene of Sweden, with excellently written compositions
and fantastic performances. We're talking about a debut album that will be released
at the start of the year - which is a difficult period for an album, but keep in mind that
we're talking about a high quality piece of work. It's a must-buy album!
On January 31st 2017, it will be released by Black Paisley AB. If you don't want to miss out
on a rock diamond, buy it immediately! As for the score, I can't give it anything short of
perfect, so I will give it a 10/10. Line-Up:
Stefan Blomqvist: Lead vocals, Lead guitar
Ulf Hedin: Solo guitar, Backing vocals.
Jan Emanuelsson: Bass
Robert Wirensjö: Keys, piano, Backing vocals
Robert Karaszi: Drums, Percussion George "Snaki" Karatzas 10/10: "What we have here is definitely an album that is a Melodic Rock diamond,
