Captain Black Beard is a Melodic Rock band from Sweden, and Before Plastic is their sophomore release … a follow-up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut. Like many Melodic Rock bands, musical virtuosity isn’t the focal point of Captain Black Beard; instead the most important aspect of each song is the vocal melody line. Sakaria Bjorklund handles the mic (along with half of the guitar duties), and comes across in text book Melodic Rock fashion, much like a Jack Blades from Night Ranger or Tommy Shaw from Styx. But, if you’re looking for musical substance here, you won’t find it.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
