Valinor's Tree


Formed during the mid 90's, this Swedish, heavy progressive quartet comprises Anders Lindgren (Bass), John Lönnmyr (Keyboards), Mattias Jarlhed (Drums; 'Simon Says') & Ola Sivefäldt (Guitars), with all four assisting with vocals. The band's sound is difficult to categorise. The prominent, expressive rhythm section gives the band a 'Tool-esque' alt-metal feel, while simultaneously showing clear influence from both ANEKDOTEN (primarily owing to their use of mellotrons), and 'Red' era KING CRIMSON.

Formed during the mid 90's, this Swedish, heavy progressive quartet comprises Anders Lindgren (Bass), John Lönnmyr (Keyboards), Mattias Jarlhed (Drums; 'Simon Says') & Ola Sivefäldt (Guitars), with all four assisting with vocals. The band's sound is difficult to categorise. The prominent, expressive rhythm section gives the band a 'Tool-esque' alt-metal feel, while simultaneously showing clear influence from both ANEKDOTEN (primarily owing to their use of mellotrons), and 'Red' era KING CRIMSON. This sound-scape underpins their often bleak, depressing, angst filled lyrical subject matter, especially on their debut album, 1998's 'Kingdom of Sadness', which revolve around death and hatred; a general tone which continued onto their follow-up; 2000's more song based '.And Then There Was Silence.' According to drummer Mattias Jarlhed, material had been written for a third studio album, which would arguably take the band into a more commercial direction (whilst maintaining the important 'Ängladoten' influence), however the wait has now lasted nine years. Whilst comparisons with both ANEKDOTEN and ÄNGLAGÅRD are going to be inevitable for any Swedish outfit professing to play 'Heavy Prog', VALINOR'S TREE's style of heavy prog is ultimately a little more melodic. Consequently, they could also appeal to fans of the Alt-Metal scene, as well as those of the heavier neo scene, such as ARENA and PALLAS. Jared Butcher (2009) Read more on Last.fm.
