Pete Sandberg’s Jade
August 2002
Released: 2000, Point Music
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Pete Sandbergs Jade has released two albums and this is the debut. The music is melodic hardrock with some influences of old 70s hardrock.

The musicians are:

Joakim Sandin–bass

Johan Helgesson–drums


Pete Sandberg–lead vocals

There are eleven songs and Pete has written all of them except for one. Petes lyrics are often about unhappy love and he sings like a god and has an unbelivable vocal range.

Some songs on the album are: “BADLANDS”, “STRANGER”, “LITTLE BIT OF LOVING” and not to forget my personal favourite “DISTANT LOVE”. These are melodic hardrock of high quality. “RESTLESS CHILD”,“HOUSE OF LOVE”,“SWEET,SWEET”,sounds more like 70s hardrock andmakes me think of Deep Purple. A song that has a lot of blues influences is “GOING DOWN”. And not to forget the beautiful ballad “PAST THE MOUNTAINS” beautiful you’ll get chills....

The production is brilliant made by Anders “Theo” Theander. I think he should only produce melodic hardrock as that is what he does best. The album is recorded in Roastinghouse Studio AB in Malmö,Sweden.
