From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Transubstans specializes in the promotion of groups which are in the seventies the source of inspiration. So it is also for this group from Stockholm, which we propose a prog album entirely instrumental in the tradition of bands like King Crimson and Magma, a middle ground between prog and experimental jazz . The whole pervaded by an attitude absolutely freak !

It almost seems to make a jump in the past between mellotron and hypnotic crescendo, the enchanted flute in the final of songs like " Svarta ...", between forays to the limits of space rock and an incredible taste for improvisation. But I started from the end of ' album rather than the beginning this is because while listening, I got lost in the maze of the disc. Just close your eyes during the arpeggio of " Helgamarktz " to begin a journey into the wonderful music of this group, the song at one point assumes the space style, even if the matrix is that its progressive .. This attitude remains on each track thanks to a liquid guitar very effective. The following " Syrenernas Sang " has some parts that seem recorded on the contrary that add an esoteric effect to the whole. Although presented a remarkable diversity tracks meet all the characteristics that we have tried to describe.

The Gosta Berlings Saga is a band out of time and that is why I like them, also show that you can make music class and quality ', even in those years where everything now seems hopelessly fake and synthesized, a record that deserves much more than a listen.
