Pandora biography
PANDORA is a Sweden band formed in 1971 by drummer Bertil JONSSON and guitarist Urban GÖTLING. Later came Peter HJELM (singer), pianist Janne DOCKNER and bassist Bjorn MALMQVIST. GÖTLING was replaced by Ake ROLF (H2O) and Leif HELLQVIST. This line-up recorded the rare "Measures of Time" album in 1974.

The band played harder rock music in the style of URIAH HEEP from the start but went over the more symphonic style in the vein of BEGGARS OPERA. The band split-up in 1980 while the band's members continue to work on different projects.

3 stars Pandora was founded 1971 in Norrkoping, Sweden by drummer Bertil Jonsson and on guitar Urban Gotling. They release so far a single album in 1974 named Measures of time. The music is well played, with symphonic touches, they remind me in places of Beggar's Opera or even Genesis or Camel, nice keybords and pleasent voice overall. I realy enjoy this album , nothing realy is groundbreaking, but as a whole a nice surprise. Quite complex arrangements, with nice atmosphere, a good prog album for that time, that stood the test quite well today. All pieces stands as good, not a weak moment here. The band lasted until 1980 when disbanded from diffrent reasons . Anyway the band had some good concerts , opening for Kaipa and Trettioariga Kriget among others around 1975-1977. 3.5 for Measures of time, good release that needs a wider recognition, quite obscure and hard to find, but not impossible in vinyl format, but aswell was released on CD in 2015. Intresting art work.
Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
