Akasha

Akasha:leading global athletic footwear and apparel retailer. Akasha was a little known Norwegian prog rock band that only managed this one album in 1977 on the small BAT label, a label hailing from their hometown of Finnsnes. I am willing to believe this album received only local distribution, as the original LP is quite hard to come by. While probably very few of you own the LP, more of you likely own the CD reissue by Ad Perpetuam Memoriam from Sweden, which is sadly no more, which is the version I have.The group consisted of vocalist Sverre Svendsen, drummer Kjeil Evensen, bassist Arild Andreassen, and keyboardist/guitarist Jens Ivar Andreassen. They also have Tor-Jonny Hansen for the words to "Death Hymn", and even credit Bjørn Hugo Gjøen for the psychedelic light show.Apparently this album was recorded in a bomb cellar in a hotel in their hometown, and let me tell you right away: this is not the most professional recording you're going to hear, but they still managed some good progressive rock, with spacy synthesizers, and Mellotron all over the place. The vocals aren't the high point, that's for sure, and the lyrics are heavily sci-fi. "The Isle of Kawi" is the lengthiest piece on the album, at over 11 minutes, you get yourself lots of sound effects, as well as Mellotron-laden symphonic passages. "Electronic Nightmare" is simply spacy electronic effects, while "Death Hymn" has this rather emotionless feel, with rather emotionless spoken dialog that works just fine in this context. Throughout the album, you can tell it's a rather amateurish production, the performance is often sloppy, but despite the shortcomings, they still managed some good prog and the Mellotron use is fantastic. The music is often tripped out, to say the least, I guess a good comparison might be Genesis meets Hawkwind. I can't be too surprised this was their only album. I couldn't imagine them having a large budget, so they couldn't go on. Not to mention the late '70s were becoming increasingly unfriendly to prog rock. Those expecting perfection probably should stay away from Akasha, but those who like a good combination of symphonic prog and spacy rock, with tons of Mellotron will find much to enjoy here.max 57% off,shipping included,seattle mallAkasha
