Abramis Brama - Dansa Tokjavelns Vals (IMPORT) (CD)



After their gig at DIST 2000 I know that Abramis Brama are an incredible live band and after listening a couple of times to their debute album I´m also a fan of their studio stuff. I know that most of you don´t understand Swedish... I don´t understand more than a couple of words of Spanish, but I still really like Natas from Argentina... so don´t let the language scare you off...

I finally took the chance of buying both [Abramis Brama] albums and damn are they ever good. As in "That feeling you had when you first heard Kyuss" good. This music is fresh and the riffs highly inventive. Like Natas singing in their native tongue, Abramis brings the non-Swedish-speaking-listener, most Americans I'd imagine, to a very foreign place (the best of what desert rock is about). Not being able to understand the lyrics & song titles adds a very rich dimension. The singing is more an instrument and great sounding syllables.

Abramis Brama - Nar Tystnaden Lagt Sig (IMPORT) (CD)



This album is filled to the brim with great tunes like ”Kall Som Sten”, ”Svart” and ”Kom Gör Mig Klok”... plenty of bluesbased heavy groove, you´ll dig it if you like stuff like November and Black Sabbath... or basicly anything good in this style done during the 70´s. But don´t you think it´s just a retro trip, if you like the more modern side of stonerrock you´ll probably like this one also... it´s a album so good it´ll break any barriers of time and space...

Great songwriting, musicianship, and production. Powerful vocals that actually don't sound too much like John Garcia. Great guitars that aren't robbed of their power by being all fuzzed out. Powerful, articulate rhythm sction, too. If there was any justice in the music world, this band would be ruling the radio waves right now... I can't remember the last time I heard an album so full of killer riffs. The "stoner rock" album of year so far in my book.

Bigelf - Closer to Doom (IMPORT) (CD)



Big Elf are one of the best and probably the single most overlooked of the heavy psychedelic bands. Their songs are powerful, hard hitting and dynamic like the very best of Monster Magnet yet Big Elf displays a melodic and extremely talented pop-song-writing ability more comparable to heavier Beatles songs. When I want to listen to something that just fucking rules I put on Big Elf. If your main tastes include bands like Monster Magnet, Baby Woodrose, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk Railroad, Black Sabbath and Budgie then Big Elf may just be your new favorite band!!

Closer to Doom will go down perfectly for all you fans of heavyrock from the 70s era and this is one of the most devestating albums of the 90s a highly recommendable album that you should lay your hands on.

Bigelf - Money Machine (IMPORT) (CD)



With a strong seventies sound Big Elf storm onto the scene with their album Money Machine. A massive sound for a three piece, short sharp riffs, tortured dwarf vocals (sorry that must be tortured Elf vocals) and plenty of drums create a sinister and dark sound that is reminiscent of early Black Sabbath, Budgie and Uriah Heep but with more melody and depth.

Darxtar - Tombola (IMPORT) (CD)



Hailing from Sweden, one of the more prolific territories of progressive rock, Darxtar's Tombola is an interesting homage to Warrior on the Edge of Time era Hawkwind. I'm also very much reminded of the classic Greek psychedelic group PLJ Band and their unforgettable Armageddon album especially with regard to the distorted, trippy vocals. Tombola is a sort of concept album, with the songs tied together to form an overall impression of spacey psychedelia. From the very beginning, we know where this CD is going, from the ambient introduction of "Silently Driftin'" through the tripped out vocals of "High on Hopes". Occasionally, a different sort of vibe is captured on the psychedelic pop of "Aura Fiducia" or the Hendrix influenced "No Peak to Pass".

DarXtar is a contemporary branch of a classic, established Space Rock, the roots of which can easily be found in the first half of the 1970s. One of Progressive's most significant sub-genres is a combination of Spacey Psychedelic Rock either with Classic Symphonic Art-Rock and Jazz-Fusion, like in the case of Gong and Clearlight, or Classic Symphonic Progressive and Prog-Metal, the brightest representatives of which are Clear Blue Sky, Hawkwind, and, as I see now, DarXtar.

Five Fifteen - Death of a Clown (IMPORT) (CD)



Fans of 70’s hard rock will like tunes ”Stone Cold Heartbreaker”, ”Lick Your Fingers Clean” and ”Season Of The Witch”. But what really makes this album take off is the fact that Five Fifteen have made a very varied album. I guess that’s what made a lot of the truly great albums of the 70’s so great... mixing heavier tunes with laidback ones and including acoustic guitars, piano and organ in the soundscapes.

London Underground - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



Now here’s a new approach to the world of prog music: London Underground. Although the British-sounding name, these fine musicians are from Italy. This album really took me by surprise. It is jaw-droppingly beautiful with its trimmings of the early style prog, but still it submits to this time and age. I promise you, you will be absolutely and pleasantly surprised by this. There are funny intervals, there are extremely well thought out ideas, there are...well, fine pop tunes. All spiced like were it from the sixties. It’s a unique band and a unique album! So high praise from this Dane to my Swedish fellow-folk for putting out this Italian band, who’s playing very fine English sounding pop, prog, psychedelic music for all to enjoy!

Brand new Italian band with members from STANDARTE. This might be the missing link between progressive music and THE BEATLES. Very melodic, but still with a very special touch of strange and interesting chords!!!

Lotus - Butterfly Effect (IMPORT) (CD Single)



For those looking for some new blood but churning out the sound of the retro period of the seventies, then look no further. These guys know all about guitar power and big drums. All we need now are the psychadelic threads Zep posters all over the wall and the accompanying drugs and alcohol to truly enjoy the Lotus experience!

Mississippi Sludge - Biscuits and Slavery (IMPORT) (CD)



Heavy ass bottom heavy Southern sludge swamp rock. Blues based vocals, keyboards and ripping southern riffs and over the top leads... This album has a mix of hard hitting rockers to slow change up beat Skynyrd influenced southern blues. There are a ton of riffs that make this record stick in my head right away. The band reminds me of a little of everything out there. AC/DC, Skynyrd, ZZ-Top, Raging Slab, Five Horse Johnson. Spots in this record show killer musician ship. The layered vocal harmonies and two guitar picked riffs. Great production as well...

Take one healthy dose each of Unida and Raging Slab and stir it up real good, and you’ll get some idea on how this tune sounds... a great groove and some delicious slide guitars and you got a winner on your hands...

QOPH - An Lyser Manen (IMPORT) (CD Single)

QOPH - Kalejdoskopiska Aktiviteter (IMPORT) (2LP)

Thick vinyl. Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Think a cross between labelmates Abramis Brama, Mammoth Volume, November and Yes at their most progressive... and I´m talking '70s stuff now, not the lame shit Yes put out today. Like all the songs on this album, it is far too complex to try to get across how it sounds in a review... Sometimes jazzy, sometimes bluesy... Always trippy, always progressive... And more often than not... Heavy, in that special '70s kinda way. Bands like Captain Beyond, Armageddon and Iron Butterfly comes to mind.

Through the band's music I constantly hear sort of a Led Zeppelin shining through without becoming a pure rip off of Plant and Co. It will probably be due to the 'hidden' amount of hard blues. In the opening song "Vansinnet" I note the fabulous guitar solo of Filip Norman, whilst the well-balanced violin of guest musician Ola de Freitas delivers a nice complimentary asset to the whole. Often the wah-wah pedal is used, the flanger is dusted off, whilst various voices form a nice counterpoint. An element, which is constantly apparent in QOPH's music, is the psychedelic approach to hard blues so that we sort of listen to the Swedish answer to Blue Cheer.

QOPH is Swedish prog, with a fairly heavy rhythm-base, but I must say that it is virtually indescribable! I think that means the originality factor here is extremely high. The thing with these guys is that they remind me of the first time I heard stuff like King Crimson and Zappa back in the '70s. At the beginning of my experience with them, it was such unusual stuff that I didn't know whether I liked it or not. Now, like with those artists, the more I listen the more I like.

Various Artists - Thousand Days of Yesterdays - A Tribute to Captain Beyond (IMPORT) (CD)



In 1972, Captain Beyond released their classic first album. The band featured ex Deep Purple singer Rod Evans, Rhino and Lee Dorman from Iron Butterfly and Bobby Caldwell from the Johnny Winter Band. A shortlived lineup, but they created one of the top hardrock albums of all times. This tribute CD is based entirely on this with some additional bonustracks.
