The highest band in Sweden flies again -- '70s progressive/hard rock band Kebnekajse releases a new album! Perhaps one of the most influential and seminal of their kind, their sound can be heard echoing in most Swedish psych/prog bands, and of course in Dungen, whose lead guitarist Reine Fiske has been working on the recording and production of this album. There's a rumble in the mountain, the forest swings and sings, the wind grabs tones that meander high up amongst the clouds. Kebnekajse may be the highest mountain in Sweden, but they are also known as the highest band in the land. They were pioneers with their instrumentals -- electrified Swedish folk/fiddler music. When they unleash their heavy version of "Horgalaten" at a festival, the ring-dancing spins, the hippie-hair flutters and the knee-tassles start smoking. Current members of Kebnekajse include Kenny Håkansson, Göran Lagerberg, Mats Glenngård, Thomas Netzler, Hassan Bah and Pelle Ekman -- six men loaded with eight new songs recorded in the woods (in the legendary Silence Studio with Anders Lind and Reine Fiske behind the controls) and mixed in the city; amazing electric folk-rock with psychedelic overtones. It is time for the troll-dance again.
