Work Of Art was formed in 1992 when Herman and Robert met while they both attended SÖL school of music. They quickly took a liking in each others songwriting and soon started to record demos together. Herman brought along his friend Lars to play keyboard and sing backup. However, the task of finding a singer was harder than expected and band was temporarily laid on ice. Meanwhile, being exposed to a lot different styles of music while studying, Herman and Robert soon ended up in a lot of different projects that musically had very little in common with WOA. Upon graduating from school in 1995 the band went their separate ways. [1998-2000] In 1998 Herman brought up the idea to start recording again, this time with Lars on vocals. Being a bit reluctant at first, Robert soon changed his mind when he heard the first results of Lars singing their songs. During the following year the guys worked on a bunch of songs in Lars' Krater studio. Four songs made it to the mixing stage in summer of 1999. Only now, Lars became busy with other projects and suggested that the band should temporarily be put on hold for the time being. [2002-2007] Getting tired of waiting, Herman and Robert, recorded the basic tracks for 8 new songs and decided to look for a new vocalist. Once again, Lars was asked to help out, this time as a recording engineer. Lars invited the band to his studio for a drum recording session. Luckily, when Lars heard the new material, it didn't take long before he expressed his desire to sing with the band again.
"Artwork" is the debut album by Swedish AOR sensation "Work of Art", originally released in 2008 by Frontiers records to critical acclaim by fans of the gnere. The line up features lead singer Lars Safsund ("Lionville"), guitarist Robert Sall ("W.E.T.") and drummer Herman Furin.Although a newcomer group by 2008, without any live performances to this day, the members of "Work of Art" have been in and out of the melodic rock scene since 1992 therefore it should not come as big a surprise how accomplished their debut "Artwork" comes out. "Artwork" combines the best elements of American AOR and Scandinavian melodic rock into a one of the greatest AOR debuts of the decade. The guys combine the best elements of music giants like "Journey", "Toto" and "Styx" subsequently crafting an admirable collection of tunes; each song has clearly defined personality while the performances support the compositions to the greatest extent. For that matter you can expect to find groovy tempos, twin guitar leads, keyboard harmonies, piano melodies even guitar shredding, depending on the requirements of each track.It is more than evident that the trio has a clear vision of the way each song should come out but most importantly they are able to control the mood/atmosphere each composition delivers the listener. Favourite tracks include the guitar led "Peace of mind" the surprisingly upbeat "Her only lie", the keyboard driven "Too late", the progressive twist of "Whenever you sleep", the riff-based "Lost without your love", all of which are meant to convince event the most demanding AOR enthusiast. Last and above all, the opener "Why Do I" is amongst the most infectious melodic rockers ever that requires no more than a listen for one to mumble its chorus through the following days.
