    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    Høst came from the Østfold-area, roughly situated between Oslo and the Swedish border. They were strongly influenced by Swedish bands such as November and Life. Høst ("Autumn") became the only important Norwegian progressive rock group of the 70's to sing in their native tongue.
    På Sterke Vinger (1974) was a great combination of Lasse Nilsen's screaming guitars, Svein Rønning's symphonic keyboard textures and Geir Jahren's poetic Norwegian lyrics. His powerful way of singing is reminiscent of several Italian groups. Several people cite this as the best ever Norwegian progressive rock album, and this is understandable. However, the reliance on Swedish rock was perhaps too strong: "På Sterke Vinger" was almost a remake of November's "En Lang Dag Är Över", and "Fattig Men Fri" paraphrased the lyrics of Solar Plexus' "Den Tanklöse Spelmannen" (written by Emil Hagström). This version of Høst soon dissolved with main writer Svein Rønning soon forming the ill-fated group Déjà-Vu.
    Jahren and Bodahl recruited three new members, among them the talented guitarist Fezza Ellingsen (ex-St. Helena). He composed most tracks on Hardt Mot Hardt (1976), not surprisingly a more guitar-oriented heavy rock album.
    Their record company woudn't finance a third album and only allowed Høst to record three new tracks. The group had intended to record a complete album with English lyrics for international release under their new name Ice Band (with Fezza Ellingsen replaced by John Hesla). Tired of the rock business, the group finally called it a day in 1978. The first Høst line-up has reformed on several occasions doing sporadic concerts.
