Aunt Mary biography (
One of the early and by many considered to be one of Norways definitely best prog bands. Their music is a mix of heavy hard-rocking tunes, combined with clear influences from the symphonic genre. The more symphonic sound however didn't appeared until their third, and last studio album, "Janus". A great concept-album to start with. If you want the more thundering sounds coming from AUNT MARY, look for 1972s "Loaded". High-skilled musicians combined with good, creative melodies makes AUNT MARY a important Norwegian band to become acquainted with.

Ever liked their tune "Whispering Farewell" since I first heard it on a LP-sampler way back in the 70s. But never knew they were from Norway until now... I think one of their singers (the more "dramatic" sounding one) was really very good.
