Right behind Ace Frehley’s home planet Jendell lays Plowman’s planet. That’s where the band Glimmung were hatched in year 2011, from eggs marked with names such as Levitation, Mazon, Union 69, Sun of Mine, Angelrape, Maffick and Bad Business. Out of this farrago a really delicate music omelette was created, hard to describe in taste and character. But surely, you’ll hear inspirations from bands such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep. By the way, it was those inspirations that caused Glimmung to move to planet Tellus, to Lidköping and Gothenburg in Sweden.
Henrik "Linkan" Lindqvist – vocals
Tony Hellberg – Hammond organ
John Borg - guitar
Dan Högberg - bass
Mathias Krizan - drums
In 2010 the first outcome was a CD-EP release called "Smells Electric" (under the Levitation banner and with slightly different setup). 2012 came recording number two, the classic CD-EP "Black Maria". Two of the three songs on "Smells Electric" ("Green queen" och "Travelin") were in 2013 released as a digital single with title "No creature knows itself".
In 2015 the more heavy sounding CD-EP "I am Winter" was released. The song "Marwencol" was pre-reselased as a single, with a cover inspired by Black Sabbath's Born Again album. In December 2015 Glimmung entered the studio again to record a new song for an upcoming compliation LP. This LP is to be released in spring 2016.
Glimmung's music is available through Spotify, iTunes, Amazon etc.
