Prog On Discovery M6

1973-1975 were in many ways the last years of the golden age of prog, and by this point all Europe had been covertly infiltrated by killer prog bands. Here are two prime examples!
1Trettioariga Kriget

"- stellar guitar playing, Mellotron, some acoustic guitars, prominent bass lines etc
- kinda "heavy" and "dark" ( as to be expected from scandinavians)
- sung in swedish for an öhh.... exotic flavor
- they go both ways ...short and long. (usually around 4 min. + a 17 min. track to close it out.
In one sentence: Young (well at the time) swedish prog rock band emulating the sounds of the "foreign greats" like King Crimson, Rush and Yes with some hard rock." - hansoloshotfirst

2Embryo (GER)

"Embryo is a german krautrock musical act known for their distinct brand of jazz-rock music. Of their albums I find this one to be their most sonically interesting. It mainly is a jazz-rock album like their others, but is filled with odd sounds and influences, from marimbas to violins and a bunch of other things I can't identify because I suck at describing music
tl;dr: it's a sonically weird instrumental krautrock jazz-prog record." - SharkTooth
