The Swedes have always managed to produce really good and exciting prog bands. Year after year new very fascinating bands emerges. The last addition I have discovered is Khadavra. They describe their attitude in this way, «We try to dig deep into the unconscious, express what it is we find and try to give you all a channel for your emotional and cognitive desires and hope you’ll find a way to tune in! It is also a kind of outlet for our concerns and feelings toward society and the modern kind of humanity and it’s». Khadavra har recently released the album Hypnagogia, and here are the track Mordängel which actually is a fan-made music video!
The band also states, «But remember, we don’t really take ourselves too serious, so you really don’t either, BUT we (and you should too) always respect the music, and the effect it has». I respect most kind of music, but I really enjoy much of the often spacy, sometimes avant garde and jazz drenched prog that Khadavra offers. Especially the 28,47 minutes long song Kollektiv is very intriguing. Here are Kollektiv live at Slottsskogen Goes Progressive 2017.
