(Silence / Musea)


Back in the mid to late 1970’s Ragnarök began recording a series of instrumental albums that helped put progressive rock music—that classic early '70s instro prog sound originally pioneered by Bo Hanssonfrom Sweden on the map. After way too long away from the woods of Koppom and the ears of original Silence Records producer / engineer Anders Lind, the original Ragnarök amazingly reunited and released a great CD in 2009, simply called Path. Could this be the start of a new renaissance of the classic ‘70s Ragnarök sound? Let's hope so. Well, with long time Ragnarök guitarist / visionary Peter Bryngelsson once again leading the charge, the band includes long time Ragnarök drummer Thomas Wiegert, early Ragnarök members Peder Nabo (keyboards, guitars), guitarist Henrik Strindberg (guitar) and on bass, Staffan Strindberg. Bryngelsson and Nabo joined forces for some brilliant song writing in Ragnarök back in the late ‘70s and, echoing the band's progressive Swedish instrumental guitar roots, there are some great tracks on Path, especially the upbeat ones like “Waterlevels” and “Angel” each featuring fantastic unfolding sonic waves of sound. Since the days of Bo Hansson and Samla, Sweden has always excelled with their own unique approach to guitars and especially instrumental rock composers. Putting forth a compelling revival of the classic original Ragnarök instrumental rock sound, Peter Bryngelsson and his esteemed band mates honor the fascinating 30+ year legacy of Ragnarök on Path. www.RagnarokProgg.se
