Will Howlett The spirit of kraut, prog and groove is alive. Awesome drum solo on Spitsbergen, great riffs too. And that mellotron could seduce Tesla himself. Favorite track: Spitsbergen.

Jean-François Cousin A sort of stoner-krautrock version of Anglagard. Brilliant. Favorite track: Static.

Dragan Cekic One more very good album from Sweden.
This one also shows some 70' progressive/psychedelic rock influence and should appeal to all fans of the genre. Production and sound on this record are excellent.
The bass and the keyboards sound terrific.
Four instrumental tracks build one 33 minute long dark music trip.
And 33 minutes is just too short. That is the weakest point of this otherwise good album.

Recommended!
Mark:6/10

Mr. Mattias Olsson appears on this one too: Deadwood Forest-Mellodramatic (2000)

about

WALRUS THE RECORD: A mesmerizing, shimmering four track Instrumental Rock record with emotions rang- ing from the ethereal stillness of the quiet sea to the death throes of a rabid killer whale. Firmly rooted in the golden age of progressive music, with sounds of Hammond Organ, Mellotron and Wurlitzer Piano, as well as Mini- moog, Binson Tape Echo and Fuzz Bass, it reaches its branches well into the future of instrumental rock with its unique compositions. Featuring a stunning album sleeve design by Henning Lindahl of Airwaves Design.
