Akasha - Akasha (1977)

The one and only album from this Norwegian band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, mellotron, synths, organ, piano, vocals and spoken words.

This band was from a small fishing village called Kjollefjord up in the far north of Norway. Only Thule from Honningsvaag is a more northern band than Akasha.

This album was recently re-released on CD through the Norwegian classic albums series and that got mine and the rest of the Norwegian prog rock fans attention. 

A pretty well deserved attention too.

The music is a mix of psych rock and symphonic prog. 

The sound is good and ditto for the English vocals.

The music is filled with mellotron. The music is also quirky and pretty eclectic. There is also some cool melodies here.

The quality of the music on this forty minutes long album is indeed good. 

This album is indeed a hidden gem. It is one of the finds of the year.
