"Revolution" was originally released in 1995 by Swedish melodic hard rockers BAD HABIT. This is the band's heaviest recording and, one of the best melodic rock albums that time. Great performances, huge guitar work and a solid production make this album a sensational purchase for the fans of big melodies, catchy choruses and generally to everyone who loves Scandinavian Melodic Rock and AOR with attitude. Well done!
2005's "Hear Say" will win over many punters, converted, or otherwise. The band combine a few modern influences, with various loops and percussive effects making it sound like a rock crossover album at times. This is about as modern as a bow and arrow. With the new CD [hear-say], BAD HABIT are back stronger than ever.
A discussion on Scandinavian AOR would be incomplete without mention of Malmo based outfit Bad Habit. Timing their run through the 80's and dodging hair-metal bullets along the way, this classy five-piece straddled the fence between hair-metal and AOR, ending up like a cross between Danish boys Fate, Norwegians Davinci and fellow Swedes Glory. They did have an intriguing sound, enhanced by Hal Johnsto's Brian May like guitar lines. Signed to Sony/CBS for a 6 track demo called 'Young And Innocent' released in 1988, the band traded labels and moved to Virgin Records for the release of their debut album in 1989 called 'After Hours'.
