Lizardking #2

Take a trip back in time, and listen to some of the work of Gustaf Grefberg (Lizardking).

I went through some of my old data on my storage unit this morning, and I found some of my old downloads. Some of the songs are dated 1994-1995 but I cannot verify all of them.

I especially like the “World of Unicorns” song. It’s not everyday, a song this is so emotional from the “King of Doskpop”.

The song ‘Claustrophobia’ is super cool and characterize the ‘Doskpop’ style, as he called it. The ‘Doskpop intro’ are a slow version of Claustrophobia, but in only 4 channels (MOD).
