    Jono (a brand of lush, Queen-inspired style))

    JONO is a new addition to the Swedish prog-rock contingent. The group consists of Johan Norrby (lead vocals & keyboards), Stefan Helleblad (guitar, b/v), Johan Carlgren (keyboards, b/v), Janne Henriksson (bass, b/v), Nicka Hellenberg (drums & percussion). They demonstrate an admirable command to exhibit a fantastic soundstage. Compositionally, their debut album ‘Requiem’ gives a nod to the past, while its feet are planted in the present. This venture does echo back to the 'good old days' of classic Queen, yet with a side order of Kansas. Some riffing and quirky moments remind of fellow countrymen A.C.T. The very first thing that struck me was the captivating vocals of Johan Norrby. His singing, on most occasions, evokes the passion and magnificence of Freddie Mercury and Ronnie James Dio. The music is setting the scene for incredible voice to lead the way towards a shore. Quite obviously, Jono has what it takes to catch many, many ears. There’s a full blown affair with well handled changes in pace. There are passages with abundance of keyboards, inventive guitar patterns and masterful rhythm section. This five-piece is capable to weave a musical texture that’s dynamic and melodic, intense and laidback, purposeful and dramatic. Their ‘Requiem’ bursts with accessible heartache and splendor…

    In sum: unreservedly recommended! This CD should be a welcome addition to the collection of any discerning listener. So what are you waiting for?..
