    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    I am surprised nobody mentioned Tusmorke yet. They certainly seem to fit the bill.
    Recently released and still available at progstreaming. Great album!

    Neo-sepia

    I suppose Hedningarna belongs there

    You may want to exclude White Willow, as their leader has expressed here in the past that he thinks they should be classified as Zeuhl(even if no one else agrees)

    Wasn't Wimme on one of Hedningarnas albums (nr. 4)?

    There is also Mari Boine...

    Excuse me??? I have never said anything like it … I like zeuhl as much as the next guy, but White Willow is a symphonic rock band.

    I don't know to what extent we are consistently sepia-toned, but I think at least the first few albums qualify for what the OP is talking about.

    My mistake. But there was someone here, a year or so ago, that claimed WW as Zeuhl, which I thought laughable. I just assumed it to be you, I suppose. Would you classify WW as retro, then?

    OK, it was certainly not me … and I agree it is laughable. Would I classify White Willow as retro? Maybe the first couple of albums, but it's a long time since I thought of us as sounding 70s. We use vintage instruments, especially our keys are all pre-1980something, but personally I don't think I have entered a studio thinking "let's make it sound like the 70s" since recording our first album. I don't know. How DOES one classify White Willow? Are we retro, contempo, sepia-colored or technicolored … beats me.

    When I think of something that has sepia hues, is Scandinavian, progressive and 90s, all I can think of is Landberk's 1st album. Even our first album was pretty colourful and bright in spite of the melancholy and the retro trappings.

    How about the Norwegian band Thule? These guys live close to the nordkapp and their music is as dark as the polar night.

    From the album Natt (1990)


    From the album LIquid (2005)

    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    I'd say your debut album is definitely close to sepia... I could never get in the second one, but it's not nearly as retro, though it's nt neo either... From Sacrament onwards, I'd say that your music has veered a mix of neo, modern and retro... I haven't heard the last two, though.

    It's a bit more heavy rockin' vibe overall.Sound of the album is purposely right from the garage.
    They have released also excellent "No 2" ,five-track MCD/EP (45rpm).
