4 stars Initially named after ''King Edward'',ANEKDOTEN started in 1990,at a time when progressive rock was on a rise in Scandinavia.After two critically-acclaimed demo tapes they released their first album ''Vemod'' in 1993.This splendid effort was a beautiful vintage journey through the 70's,especially Red-era KING CRIMSON sounds dominate the album.''Vemod'' is an alternating effort of cello work,mellotron-based strings and heavy guitar passages,resulting a fantastic yet obscure and dark atmosphere,which only KING CRIMSON could create.The vocals are clean and nice,the rhythm section is brilliantly tight and the vintage sounds really thrill me.Listed among the best modern prog bands,ANEKDOTEN deserve your fully attention at any cost.Highly recommended!
