Degreed - Degreed album review

The best Melodic Rock you can get this month

Cover art for Degreed - Degreed album

Since 2005, Stockholm natives Degreed have developed into masters of modern melodic hard rock, and this self-titled album comprises a collection of hard hitting, imaginatively-produced and utterly irresistible tunes. As the saying goes, it’s all killer, no filler, and before the end of 2017, within the group’s chosen genre there are likely to be few better songs than the brilliant Tomorrow.

Dave Ling was a co-founder of Classic Rock magazine. His words have appeared in a variety of music publications, including RAW, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Prog, Rock Candy, Fireworks and Sounds. Dave’s life was shaped in 1974 through the purchase of a copy of Sweet’s album ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, along with early gig experiences from Status Quo, Rush, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Yes and Queen. As a lifelong season ticket holder of Crystal Palace FC, he is completely incapable of uttering the word ‘Br***ton’.
