The Icelandic prog-rock band Svanfrídur released only one album, recorded six months after they played their first gig. This short-lived band rapidly rose to fame, receiving rave reviews for live performances, but in fact, their music was way ahead of its time. They were unable to seal a recording contract, so they formed their own label -- Swan Records. When the album What's Hidden There? was released in autumn 1972, it got mixed reviews and sold only a few hundred copies, leaving the band with a great album, but sadly, not the income they had been hoping for. Recorded at London's Majestic Studios, the album was cut and pressed in England. Perhaps one of the best heavy prog/underground albums from Scandinavia, with amazing guitar and all English vocals. Would have been a famous and successful album on Decca UK. Includes a 12-page booklet. Band members: Birgir Hrafnsson (electric & acoustic guitar, vocals), Gunnar Hermannsson (bass, vocals), Sigurdur Karlsson (drums, percussion), and Pétur Kristjánsson (lead vocals).
