ABRAMIS BRAMA - Rubicon 2LP
Abramis Brama, named after the latin name for the bream ?sh, hail from the south side of Stockholm, Sweden and has since it's formation in 1997 released seven studio albums and one live album with heavy, ecstatic, riff-oriented hard rock - but with Swedish lyrics, an odd choice at the height of the international stoner rock movement around the turn of the millennium. The quartet consisting of bassist/vocalist Dennis Berg, guitarist Peo Anderson, drummer Fredrik Jansson and original lead vocalist Christian Andersen ?rst recorded a demo of twelve songs in April 1998, followed by debut album "Dansa tokjävelns vals" in 1999. New singer Ulf Torkelsson, formerly of Sun?ower, joined the band after the release of the ?rst album, and has fronted the band ever since. The follow-up "När tystnaden lagt sig..." hit record stores in early 2001, and featured many of the band's best known songs, and a translation of the Pretty Things number "Cold Stone" into Swedish as "Kall som sten".
Double black vinyl LP in gatefold cover incl. three bonus tracks, printed innersleeve with lyrics and liner notes by original bassist Dennis Berg.
