Eldberg biography
Icelandic act ELDBERG was formed back in 2008 by Jakob Gretar Sigurdsson (drums), Asmundur Svavar Sigurdsson (bass), Reynir Hauksson (guitars) and Atla Ma Björnsson (keyboards). The latter opted out the following year however, and was replaced by Kristjan Ingi Arnarsson (keyboards). His tenure didn't last too long however, and at the start of 2010 Eldbrg was reduced to a trio. But a few months into 2010 Eldberg completed their line-up with Heimir Klemenzson (keyboards) and Eythor Ingi Gunnlaugsson (vocals), and soon after they started to record material for their debut album.

The end result was the self-titled CD Eldberg, issued by Chilean progressive rock label Mylodon Records in 2011.

4 stars Eldberg is a very young band from Iceland who released last year their first selftitled album. It was for me a very pleasent surprise, because on one hand they are from a country where prog is not at home with some exceptions that I know like Svanfridur or Eik, on the other hand is a very solid album that capture my attention from start to finish. The music offered by Eldberg is a combination of heavy prog passages with psychedelic arrangements very much similar with bands like Uriah Heep Salisbury or Look at yourself era. Good and captivating moments here on all pieces, not a weak moment for sure, the hammond is very strong keeping a high level and melted with the guitar is absolutly killer. Very good the druming, not overly complex but very well performed, the voice is great aswell. All pieces has same level, not one is in front, is avery good thing that Eldberg were concentrated to make all album strong not only 2-3 pieces like one many albums from today. This is a very retro sound that will please fans of the genre big time, very promissing band that for sure needs attention. Excellent cover art in inside drawings, digipak format issued by chilean Mylodon label. recommended, captivating and intresting heavy psych. One of the best from last year no doubt. 4 stars easy

4 stars This is an interesting piece of retro prog. It has a very early-seventies sound, dominated by the old Hammond organ sound. In fact, my first impression was that this band was building on Deep Purple's sound. But in retrospect, they are far more progressive than DP ever was.

The songs often have a prog folk feel, with some delicate guitars, and lighter keyboards that float about, until the bombastic Hammond joins in to beef up the sound. While I don't understand a word of the lyrics (I presume they are sung in Icelandic), I find all of the songs to be enjoyable, in a nostalgic way.

4 stars WARNING: Only for fans of organ dominated Prog, more generally for Retro Prog fans.

Iceland, land of mostly ice (and sparsely populated habitats), but not much of a Prog. And now this, classic Prog, shooting like blast from the past. So normally it would be average album and 3 stars would be in order, but I cannot grant average rating to an album that should be average (technically), but sounds like something more. It is very lively (so no 35 years or rotting corpse on someone's backyard), but a healthy child. Even it is quite a overgrown child.

4(-), almost didn't make it out of 3 stars gravity, but finally did.

Review by Curutchet

5 stars From the quirky album cover to the wonderful music, Eldberg is a band not to be missed. This debut album is a gem of progressive rock ! Their music would clearly not have looked out of place in the early 70s, since it's heavily hammond organ-based. The keyboardist does an amazing job at capturing the essence of the 70s prog rock in that regard, his playing is beyond par. The other musicians, from the drummer to the guitarist are also quite amazing, and very delicate.

Though Eldberg sounds like a mix of Genesis, Yes, Camel and modern-day Beardfish, Eldberg has managed to creat its own identity in between the set boundaries of "classic prog". Plus, it's so refreshing to hear music from the golden days of prog, but made in 2011.

All songs are wonderful, so I'll just bring your attention to the ending part of 'EEg er lkfsins braus' which is a...'particular' rendition of "Child in Time", my favorite song of Deep Purple. And to the final "epic" 14-min song, which in its middle part picks up with an upbeat jazzy tune with wonderful organ and guitar...

Eldberg, I'm eagerly awaiting for your next album.
