Anekdoten - Vemod (1993)

""Vermod" was one of albums that re-ignited the Swedish progressive rock revival. Without a question ANEKDOTEN have been heavily influenced by early 70’s KING CRIMSON with their tailored and yet controlled FRIPP-like guitar playing (Nicklas Berg) & loads of mellotron (actually is 2 different mellotron going at some places!) ANEKDOTEN understands the Crimsonic use of contrast, and Vemod is centered on contrasting tempos and dynamics. Guitarist Nicklas Berg turns in a gritty performance on both guitar and mellotron reminding the listener at many points of why one likes this type of music in the first place. The combination of pump organ, Mellotron, and a deeply bowed cello creates a rich dark sound of brooding intensity. Emotionally charged melodic lines and powerful rhythms abound. The percussion on this album is killer with some great deep chops and complex percussion. Filling in the mix is cellist/keyboardist Anna Sofi Dahlberg who works with the mellotrons to really bring forth some warm tones."

Tenho o CD. É bom, mas já ando meio cansado de ouvir grupos quase clones de King Crimson, ELP, Genesis... O que diferencia o Anekdoten do King Crimson é que a parte vocal é bem inferior e ao invés de escutarmos violino/viola, ouvimos violoncelo. O trabalho de mellotron do imitador é mais consistente do que o imitado. Muitas pessoas que gostaram desse disco, não gostaram do seguinte. Eu não conheço o segundo disco.
