5 stars SINKADUS from Gothenburg, Sweden was formed 10 years ago, and now they are releasing their debut-CD "Aurum Nostrum" (which is Latin for Our Gold). - From the beginning of their career they were playing GENESIS covers, and you can hear that on this album. It's very reminiscent to GENESIS ca. 1971, but with traces of Nordic folk music. They are also reminiscent to ÄNGLAGARD, MUSEO ROSENBACH and CATHEDRAL. The line-up and the sound remind of ÄNGLAGARD. - Just like ÄNGLAGARD's debut CD, this album also got 4 tracks: "Snålblåst", "Manuel", "Ågren" and "Ättestupan". The shortest track is 11:06 and the longest 18:28. Although the tracks are very long the music is very varied and complex, and it keeps the interest the whole songs through. They've got layers or Mellotron and Hammond. Ad some fast-fingered bas and guitar playing, an excellent drummer, good vocals, and the beautiful tune from flute and cello. This is a album that is gonna be mentioned together with albums like LANDKERK's "Riktigt äkta", ÄNGLAGARD's "Hybris", WHITE WILLOW's "Ignis Fatuus" and ANEKDOTEN's "Vemod", when we are summing The Scandinavian classics from The 90's. A perfect masterpiece that i highly recommends! - ÄNGLAGARD is carrying the traditions of the 70's into the 90's. They are one of the best bands to emerge in the 90's. Rest in peace ÄNGLAGARD. Long live SINKADUS!
