Trettioariga Kriget - Seaside Air (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU Mellotronen 036
Founded in 1970, Trettioriga Kriget (30 Years War) were an excellent progressive/hard rock band from Sweden released a number of really good albums in the 70s and finally ran out of gas in the late 1970s, A couple of years ago, they released a very good reunion album that reunited all the original members with the addition of a keyboardist (a big plus for them, in my opinion).
Since that time, they've stayed together and this album is their fourth since their reformation. Nice digipack package as well.
Stefan Fredin- bass guitar, vocals, acoustic guitar
Dag Lundquist- drums, timpani, violin, percussion, background vocals
Robert Zima- vocals, acoustic guitar
Christer Åkerberg- lead guitar
Mats Lindberg-keyboards

"Seaside Air, the new studio album by Trettioåriga Kriget, was recorded during summer and autumn 2015 in Stockholm. It contains seven new original songs, most of them written by Stefan Fredin and all with lyrics by Olle Thörnvall. For the first time in the long history of Kriget, the entire album is in English, which should guarantee a new level of interest among the band’s very international fanbase.
Following the album trilogy that Trettioåriga Kriget released between 2004 and 2011, and which formed the band’s autobiography, “Seaside Air” is a relaxed, self-assured album. It has a pronounced pop/rock feel to it, as if these Swedish masters of progressive music have finally allowed themselves to indulge in their childhood’s love of the Beatles. The songs are very strong, melodic and immediately accessible without losing the depth and complexity for which the band is so well known.
Seaside Air is a phrase that could refer to the famously invigorating atmosphere of the band’s native Saltsjöbaden, but it could also mean “a melody by the sea”, full of light and colour. A very warm sound permeates this new album from Trettioåriga Kriget, an album in which the band reinvents itself once again, and creates great new music by looking back on its history."
