Sweden Just Keeps on Rocking!

Rian is a melodic hard rock band from Sweden who play classic melodic rock music reminiscent of the second half of the eighties. Rian’s sound appears influenced by bands like Bon Jovi, Winger, Dokken, Europe, Queensryche, and Survivor but has a distinctive and contemporary flair that sets them apart.

Rian released their first album “Out of The Darkness” in 2017 independent of a record company and received favorable reviews, especially in Europe. A second album, “Twenty-Three”, which really put them on the Melodic Rock map, followed in 2021 after signing with “Frontiers Music.”

Rian’s newest album “Wings” has just been released and appears to pick up where its predecessor, “Twenty-Three” left off, ¬†with lots of groove, grand guitar riffs, infectious refrains, superb vocal arrangements, and slick guitar solos.

The album’s opening track and first single, “Carry My Wings,” is new this week on RadiJohan.
