    ProgArchives:
    RUPHUS is probably one of the most important 70’s Norwegian hard rock band with progressive tendencies (there were a few of those back then: AUNT MARY, TITANIC, POPOL VUH / ACE etc..) but their music evolution would differ greatly from those groups. Their debut "A New Born Day" is certainly one of the best Norwegian albums with a very exciting sound and its extraordinarily communicative enthusiasm, even if a bit dated. But three members left after the album release and a new singer was found for their second album "Ranshart", a more progressive record looking towards YES and FOCUS, but it was not quite as exciting as the debut. Future jazz-rock legend Terje Rypdal produced their third album "Let Your Light Shine", a jazz-rock album that had much success in Germany, but again, personnel change struck at the worst of times, but their fourth album "Inner Voice" continued the formula, but further changes undermined the group, eventually folding at the end of the decade to general indifference.
    RUPHUS’s discography is interesting to a few types of progheads from the more symphonic ones to the more fusional ones. ~ Hugues Chantraine

    avatarTerrific record, powerful, accomplished, exciting. Fantastic strong female vocals (as well as male vocals), bass has a great Chris Squire-like tone and approach. Yes, ELP, contemporaneous heavy rock, just a trace of psychedelia (and Airplane in the fem. vox) and other influences and a wide variety of moods integrated into a cohesive, unitive piece in which the band reveals its own distinctive and highly realized voice. If any of those qualities and touchstones sound good to you, I suggest you give this a listen!
