Trettioåriga Kriget - st (1974 superb Sweden prog)

Trettioåriga Kriget - Trettioåriga Kriget

Un altro paio di dischi provenienti dalle terre del nord! questi dischi sono più sul versante progressive (in senso stretto)piuttoso che un heavy prog tipico degli album postati in passato! ve ne consiglio l'ascolto anche se lo sapete che per la roba prog svedese sono faziosissimo!


Trettioåriga Kriget - Krigssång (superb prog 1975)

Trettioåriga Kriget - Krigssång

Great progressive rock band from Sweden, and this is a wonderful follow up to their incredible debut two years earlier. This album would appeal to anyone who enjoy's Yes, Greenslade, Camel ect. The guitarist is very skilled, and has a sound a bit like Steve Howe at times. They use piano and mellotron to a great effect also. The rhythm section is outstanding. The bass player is hard not to notice, as he seems to continuously challange the lead guitar, while the drummer is quite impressive as well. The lineup on this LP includes a fifth member credited as lyricist. I wish I understood Swedish, because the vocalist really has a great prog rock deliverence in his style. Still a pleasure to listen to, even though I'll probably never know what he's singing about. I do know the Bands name translated into English means,Thirty Years War.


Trettioåriga Kriget - Hej På Er (1976)
Trettioåriga Kriget - Hej På Er

3rd album by the legendary Swedish Prog band Trettioåriga Kriget (The Thirty Years War), which was their most successful and most popular effort. By the time this album was recorded, the band (Stefan Fredin – bass, Dag Lundquist – drums, Christer Åkerberg – guitar and Robert Zima - vocals) added a fifth member, keyboards and saxophone player Mats Lindberg, in order to augment the band’s sound with additional possibilities. The lyrics were supplied, as usual, by the band’s resident lyricist Olle Thörnvall. The music is perhaps slightly more “conventional” than on their earlier albums, with all songs staying within the 6 minutes limit, but the great melodies and the exceptional performances are definitely a fitting compensation. The album is another classic Scandinavian Prog gem, which sounds every bit as good now as it did originally. A must!
