Dreaming About The Emerald is the first peek into the 6-track album The Training and it paints both a dreamy and energetic musical landscape.

Echoes of bands like King Crimson, Genesis, Gentle GiantYes to modern prog bands like Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater and The Pineapple Thief flow through King of Sweden.

King of Sweden is a Finnish progressive rock band, founded in late 2019 by guitarist and singer Sampsa Nelimarkka, drummer Janne Savela and bass player Erkka Heinilä.

The trio had played together in the past, with Sampsa Nelimarkka playing the bass and Erkka Heinilä playing the guitar. This time they decided to switch instruments with each other and immediately found their sound.

Combining vintage and modern sound, King of Sweden plays honest progressive rock.

They are deeply rooted in the old and classic progressive rock, however, they add to it a proper dose of fresh energy and some groovy and irresistible hard rock vibes. Jamming and improvisation remains important part of their music, as well as talented compositions

King of Sweden recorded their debut album in December 2019 and their new music will be out in 2020/21 on Crusader Records.
