OSUKARU picture
Osukaru is the brandchild of Swedish guitarist Oz Osukaru (ex. Katana, ex. Eye) who had the dream of creating a Scandinavian / American melodic rock outfit having the "all inclusive" package. After teaming up with Los Angeles based drummer Ryan Coyle in the summer of 2008, a new friendship and musical partnership was forged and the dream was finally within reach.

However, it would take until 2010 before the fruits of their labors would show and the world got to know Osukaru. Aside from Oz and Ryan, the band consisted of Oz's two ex. band mates from Katana; singer Johan Bernspång and 2nd guitarist Tobias Karlsson who both joined the line-up during the spring that year. In August, Oz also found a great bass player during a photo shoot and one audition later, the young, beautiful and talented Emma-Lee Gunnari joined the band. Two months later, the first official CD was

OSUKARU Salvation

'Salvation', the full length debut by the fresh Swedish melodic rock outfit, should have delivered last year but somehow, it only saw the light of day in early 2012. Comprised of 9 songs with an intro, OSUKARU tried to play in the comfort zone of Scandinavian AOR, with a classy guitar fill. Several songs inside were taken from the previously released EP, such as 'City Lights' and 'Never Too Late' from the 'Never Too Late EP' and also 'Change of Heart' and 'T.M.Y.S' from 'GBB2LA'.

'Highway To The Stars' is a smooth opening tune, but 'Hot Blooded Woman' is a bit patchy I guess. 'City Lights' is the first winner, the solo is perfectly executed, and overall a very good midtempo song. 'Till The End of Time' is a beautiful ballad with a neat memorable chorus. 'Never Too Late' boosts the tempo, still wrapped up with sensational melodic hooks.

'Change of Heart' is simply the best track. It sways tenderly with a bold sax touch, and everything from the verse to chorus is simply mindblowing. 'Tear It Down' and 'T.M.Y.S' are okay, but 'Promised Land' is somehow the better track. The production is warm and acceptable, but I guess OSUKARU needs at least two more punchy tracks and several weaker tracks could have been tweaked better.

A good start and I expect an even better result in the second record to come!
