A.C.T. - Call In Dead

“This is what happens when parents are right"

You think Mika pushed it to the limit with Grace Kelly? Well, you haven't heard Sweden's A.C.T. yet. A rock band who mixes a bit of Queen, ELO and Abba into their music, they are completely over the top. Call In Dead is under three minutes long, yet it sound like an entire rock opera sped up and crammed together until it practically bursts with odd verses, stylistic changes and multitracked theatrical vocals. It takes at least a few listens to even be able to digest it. The track is off the band's newest album Silence, though they've been around awhile and have three earlier albums of similar prog pop/rock. File this near Tally Hall and LEO and have yourself an epic rock evening. Bonus points to anyone who can tell me what the band's name stands for!

Glad you liked it. I'm a sucker for these rock opera things and there seems to be a bunch of groups going for this sound lately.
