Vinyl reissue, limited to 500 copies. Comes with innersleeve. Blakulla were a mid-'70s prog quintet from Gothenburg. Along with ATLAS and KAIPA, they were one of the few Swedish bands that played symphonic rock at the time. They practised their chops doing hard blues à la CREAM and DEEP PURPLE, and their brand of symphonic rock isn't entirely devoid of those early influences. Their only legacy, an eponymous album released in 1975, is a mixture of roughness and typical Scandinavian melancholy, featuring swirling organs and gutsy guitars as well as slightly folksy acoustic pieces. All vocals are in Swedish and most themes (although relatively short, except for an epic 10-min. +) are well developed.
