Anekdoten, Vemod

Sweden, 1993.

During the last decade some great symphonic Swedish bands were responsible for the resurgence of progressive rock: Änglagård, Isildurs Bane, Landberk, Morte Macabre, Paatos and - obviously - Anekdoten. Anekdoten's music is strongly characterized by the mellotron and the cello, producing a very melodic and "traditional" progressive rock, reminding of King Crimson and Van Der Graaf Generator.
