More information: The 1995 second album from the Swedish progressive rock band Anekdoten, following 1993's debut Vemod (a classic in the underground scene, blending the progressive attack and symphonic darkness of King Crimson with the sensibility and beauty of Nordic songwriting).
Nothing about the perhaps naive Vemod could have prepared the listener for the shocking verification that came with Nucleus. Over those two years, the quartets artistic voices had been brought to perfection, resulting in an album that simply cannot be compared to any other record. Its sheer power, originality, excessive cravings, mayhem, complexity, elegy, intelligent chord-and time-changes, variety and weird tonality mark the first point in history where Anekdoten present themselves as a unique entity.
Digipak with 8-page booklet and remastered in 2020 by Hans Fredriksson.
