Bio:

Alien is a Swedish rock band formed in Gothenburg in 1986 by guitarist Tony Borg and vocalist Jim Jidhed. They are best known today for their single "Only One Woman", a cover of a Marbles song, and "Brave New Love", which was featured in the 1988 remake of The Blob.

Early success (1986-88)
Borg and Jidhed's original lineup included Ken Sandin on bass guitar, Jimmy Wandroph on keyboards, and Toby Tarrach on drums. This group released the single "Only One Woman" in 1988, a cover of a song written by the Bee Gees and first recorded by The Marbles in 1968. The Alien cover reached #1 in Sweden and remained there for six weeks.Later in 1988, Alien released their first, eponymous album, including "Only One Woman" as well as "Brave New Love" and "Tears Don't Put Out the Fire", which was released as a single later that year. In 1989, the band released a re-worked version of it for the US/international market, again titled Alien. This album included eight out of the twelve tracks released in the 1988 album, 5 of which were remixed. Two new tracks were added, "Now Love" being one and a cover of "The Air That I Breathe" the other, both sung by new vocalist Peter "Pete" Sandberg.

Shiftin' Gear (1988-93)
In the fall of 1988, Jidhed left the band to pursue a solo career and was replaced by Peter Sandberg, formerly frontman for the bands Madison and Von Rosen. In 1990 the band also made other changes, such as replacing Wandroph and Tarrach with Bert Andersson on keyboards and Imre Duan on drums. This was the lineup for the band's release of its third album, "Shiftin' Gear". However, the album was not the success it was predicted to be and another major lineup change occurred. Andersson was replaced by Richard Andre on keyboards and Stefan Ridderstrale replaced Duan on drums. Former Madison bassist Conny Payne also joined Alien in 1993. Finally, lead singer Peter Sandberg departed the band and later pursued a solo career. To replace him, Alien recruited Daniel Zangger Borch.

Band Stability (1993-2005)
Alien returned to the studios to record their fourth album, again titled "Alien". Ridderstrale, although performing on tour, did not participate in the recording sessions and Michael Wilkman stood in as drummer. Production was weak and the band lost much of its following. This can also be attributed to the numerous band member changes between 1990 and 1993.Ridderstrale officially left the band in 1995 and Staffan Scharrin became the drummer, thus completing the band's present lineup. This new formation released the band's fifth album, "Crash" in 1995. This album featured heavier metal songs than previously recorded by Alien.Since then, Alien released three more albums, Best and Rare (1997, compilation), Live in Stockholm 1990 (2001) and Dark Eyes (2005). Dark Eyes was the first album to feature all new recordings and marked the return of Jim Jidhed to the band now composed of him, Mats Sandborgh on keyboards, Berndt Ek on bass, Jan Lundberg on drums alongside Tony Borg.Present days 

ALIEN 2010- present - The original line-up eventually reunited, a handful of festivals were chosen - Sweden Rock (Cruise + Festival), Getaway Rock, Firefest a.o. A new single, Ready To Fly (Manora Rec), was cut to promote the reunion. It went down great with the crowd and especially the response at the first Firefest performance (2011) made the band really consider making this new record.In 2013, the No Remorse/EMI re-issue CD (ltd 1000 copies) of Alien (s/t Scandinavian) reached No.1 in the import album chart in Japan and sold out. EMI Music Sweden released the back catalog, re-mastered for digi/download with some unreleased demos as bonus. "Alien - 25th Anniversary" 2CD deluxe edition highlighted the celebration of ALIEN’s debut album, selling out as well. "Shiftin' Gear +4" CD (AOR Heaven) bonus tracks shed some light on the fact that the original line-up wrote and pre-produced a sophomore album, before disbanding in late 1989.

Album:

AOR HEAVEN through their sub-label has reissued "Shiftin' Gear", the second album from Swedish Melodic Hard Rock masters ALIEN. Remastered and with 4 previouly unreleased tracks from the originl recording sessions, this is a must have gem of an album."Shiftin' Gear" is rarely mentioned among the fans lists as favorite, but when a band has such tremendous Classic as Alien with their self-titled debut, this usually happens.Anyway, "Shiftin' Gear" is another awesome effort from these Swedes.When incredible vocalist Jim Jidhed left Alien, Tony Borg recruited Pete Sandberg from the band Madison as the new singer. And what an amazing frontman he found in Mr Sandberg.A little more Melodic Hard Rock oriented than the first album, "Shiftin' Gear" still retains the unmatched Scandinavian AOR swirls all over.Killer songs like the pumping "In the Dead of Night", the superb ballad "Angel Eyes", the AOR-bliss of "Desperate Dreams" or the awesome harmonies of "Turn on the Radio" alongside Sandberg's soaring vocals and Borg's fantastic guitar licks make this release simply essential for everyone who loves this genre.Not only the remaster sounds glorious, but also the previously unreleased songs.Recorded during the same sessions at Studio Bohus Recording, the tracks are labeled as pre-production demos, but all sound like finished material to me.The pearl is "Name Of Love"... I don't understand how this diamond didn't make it into the album's final tracklist. The song is primo Scandi AOR of the greatest order, plenty of keyboards and a killer chorus.You need Alien's "Shiftin' Gear +4 AOR Heaven Classix" in your Melodic Hard Rock collection.
