Kaipa is the Swedish prog rock institution bar none! Founded all the way back in 1973, releasing a dozen studio albums, all with Hans Lundin as the mainstay of the band. Sure many know them because Roine Stolt has been a part of the band also, but Hans Lundin is the only remaining member of the original line-up in Ura Kaipa.

"Sattyg" is the fourth album since Roine left the band after the recording of "Mindrevolutions" in 2005, and the band has only grown stronger and tighter ever since releasing 3 excellent Swedish prog rock albums, leading up to this, their brand new masterpiece! Because this in simply one the best and most complete Swedish retro prog rock albums ever released.

Their blend of folk, prog and fusion really comes together on this album, and they show the prog world how a prog rock album with strong Swedish roots is put together! "Sattyg" combines everything their three previous albums have lead up to, and takes their music to new levels and into new territories, and that without sacrificing their trademark sound.

No need to go into specifics here; this is a mandatory purchase for all prog rock fans, and especially fans of the mighty Swedish scene.
