From http://www.burningshed.com/store/kscope/product/272/1480/

Anekdoten - Chapters (2 CD preorder)

"It's been almost 18 years since the four of us started rehearsing together in a small house in the village of Djurås. Ever since then Anekdoten has been an ongoing part of our lives. ...”

Anekdoten are considered one of the leading bands in contemporary progressive rock. Their intensive, dark, dynamic and original music has also appealed to metal, goth and post-rock fans all over the world.

Anekdoten was formed in 1991 by Anna Sofi Dahlberg, Nicklas Barker, Peter Nordins and Jan Erik Liljeström and the line up has remained intact ever since. Together they have released 5 studio albums on their own Virta label and 3 live albums in Japan, selling over 85,000 albums in the process.

Chapters is a 2CD set which mixes tracks from the band’s 5 albums along with rarities and unreleased tracks.

Jan Erik explains the choices of tracks, “On the first CD you'll find our favourite songs from our 3 most recent albums. As a bonus we finally did a proper recording of a tune we wrote in 1998 called "When I Turn". The song was not included on from From Within because we couldn't play the piano properly. For this release we asked Per Wiberg of Opeth to help us out, so now we can finally release this baby into the world.

“The second CD mostly contains material from our early years. The disc kicks off with perhaps the most legendary Anekdoten song, the epic "Sad Rain", which previously only has been available in Japan. There are also demo versions of three songs from the Nucleus album. The creative atmosphere that surrounded these recordings made them far too good to lie gathering dust in the archives. Rounding things up are demos of Pieces" and "Prince Of The Ocean" songs that would be reworked, but not necessarily improved, for our most recent studio album A Time Of Day. All songs have been carefully (re-)mastered by Hans Fredriksson at Audiosense."
