Hasn't come up for awhile, I'm mentioning it because I pulled out an album from a band called "Life" (Sweden, 1972). I'd heard some of the louder songs on the album before, but never listened to the whole presentation. I was absolutely blown away by this album, it's mostly kind of haunting dirgy piano music with a few very heavy dark proto metal songs in the mix. Brilliant prog-rock. It made me think of the few other Scandinavian bands that I know of from that time, all pretty good. Titanic, November, Aunt Mary, Ruphus, maybe Jerusalem a little later. I can't think of any more but I know a couple of you are experts so any recommendations are welcome.

Sounds interesting. Is the album self-titled?

I think the CD I have might be a comp of two albums (17 songs), and I think it's called "Version CD", but it's hard to tell because some of it's in Swedish! Yes I think you in particular might like it, lots of piano, some symphonic, and some very heavy rock. Most of it works well together too, although there are a couple of oddballs in the mix.
All of the Scandinavian bands from back then that I know of were very diverse in different ways, I expect they didn't have any formula to work off unless it was maybe some Krautrock.
