Biography

At least 3 bands are named Ragnarök:

1) Swedish Progressive Folk Rock band founded in Kalmar, Sweden, 1972.

The original and founding members were Peter Bryngelsson, Henrik Strindberg and Staffan Strindberg, but over the years no less than 27 people have been involved in Ragnarök.

In 2008 their sixth album “Path” was released – their first album in 17 years.

2) Czech R.A.C. Band

3) RAGNAROK was a New Zealand Psychedelic Progressive Rock band formed in Auckland in 1974. They released two albums; the first relatively successful, and the second not. Vocalist and writer Lea Maalfrid left after the first album. The balance of the band split up in 1977. Personnel for the first album entitled “Ragnarok”: Lea Maalfrid (vocals), Andre Jayet Mellotron (Moog synthesizer, vocals), Ross Muir (bass guitar), Mark Jayet (drums), Ramon York (guitar effects, vocals). Personnel for the second album “Nooks”: Ramon York (electric & acoustic guitars, vocals), Ross Muir (bass, synthesizer, vocals), Mark Jayet (drums, bass, acoustic guitar), André Jayet (Mellotron, Moog synthesizer, piano, Hammond, drums). Their music could be best described as classic mid-70’s psychedelic prog rock. I heard them live back then doing originals and Pink Floyd covers like “Us and Them”.
