Ragnarok - s/t. 1976 Sweden

Ragnarok's debut is a soft, tranquil style of instrumental rock, based on typically Swedish themes. Somewhat like a less rollicking Kebnekaise circa their second album. Flute, acoustic/electric guitar, and Rhodes electric piano lead the instrumental parade. A fine album that aurally represents a Nordic winter by the fire. The band's later albums, coming in a full four years after this, are considerably more energetic than this debut.

Personal collection
CD: 1995 Silence

My first copy of the album was the original LP, but moved it after replacing it with the CD, to no regrets.
