Swedish / American combo OSUKARU finally released their full length album “Salvation” this year.

They have already impressed the AOR community with the previous EP’s ‘GBG2LA’ (2012) and ‘Never Too Late’ (2011). As both never were published in Japan, Osukaru has released a very special version of “Salvation” there.

“Salvation; Japanese Deluxe Edition” includes the new album with a different artwork plus an extra CD including the EP’s, both discs including exclusive bonus tracks.Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Osukaru was founded by ex Eye / Katana guitarist Oskar ‘Oz Osukaru’ Petersson together with L.A. drummer Ryan Coyle. They are one of the few bands from the new millennium still playing classy AOR / Melodic Rock in its purest form.
