HEDNINGARNA – KULT
20 never before released tunes that make an audacious summary of a truly strange, brave and creative band.
The producer Dag Lundqvist has now mixed the 20 songs recorded between 1992 and 2006.
All constallations of the band throughout the years are represented on this CD.
In 1992 Hedningarna had a great break through with their very own mixture of Scandinavian folkmusic and the female Finnish singers runosong which together became a whole new genre of music that seemed to come from the earth itself.
It echoed far across the ocean to USA where some papers cried out ”This is the next big thing!” and the Spaniards evidently felt some kind of relationship with the sucking threestep of the Swedish polska and embraced the band to their hearts.
Rock clubs and festivals booked them to the largest stages and the tours were many and long and went across Europe and USA for some hectic years.
They became an inspiration to other folk musicians and got a lot of followers, but the interest from media died down and the door to the rock scene is nowadays very narrow.
Still, Hedningarna’s creativity never died down and at every recording session there has been some tunes left over. The members have changed over the years around the core Anders Norudde and Hållbus Totte Mattsson and on the CD Kult they are all represented. The producer Dag Lundqvist has now mixed the 20 songs recorded between 1992 and 2006.
