Prins Svart is the debut CD from Stockholm, Sweden’s Prins Svart. The band originally began as a Led Zeppelin tribute band in the 90’s and that influence is very prevalent throughout Prins Svart. Along with some evident Rainbow and Deep Purple influence as well. Comprised of 4 seasoned veteran musicians, vocalist Stefan Berggren, guitarist Henrik Bergqvist, bassist Tomas Torberg, and drummer Sebastian Sippola decided to reform Prins Svart and pursue their love of 70’s influenced classic rock. Prins Svart contains just 7 songs, but each is much longer than the traditional 3:30 radio edit, ranging in length from 4:07 to over 6 minutes, still giving the listener about 45 minutes of music. The production is a little raw, perhaps to try and capture a more 70’s flavor, and the influences of the 70’s greats is so prevalent at times, it’s almost a copycat. For example, track 2, “Jag Sparade Ingenting For Vagen Tillbacks” contains a part that is so similar to “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin that is surpasses the concept of influence. The performances are solid, and despite the lyrics being in Swedish, the melodies are very singable. Fans of Classic Rock should check out Prins Svart.
