Originally founded simply because “Jicco & the Vikings,” Vikingarna spent their first decade in relative obscurity, going right through name changes and honing their skills at Swedish dansband music, a dance-centric genre that incorporated from country & western to swing to disco, and everything points among. By 1974, the music group had resolved upon the name Vikingarna and discovered its method onto the Svenkstoppen graphs using a cover from the Carpenters’ “The surface of the Globe.” Out of this stage, Vikingarna only burnt brighter, topping the graphs the next calendar year with “Du Gav Bara Loften” and starting their lengthy march of albums (all 24 entitled Kramgoa Latar), a reasonably new phenomenon within a genre dominated by live show only. Personnel adjustments occurred often throughout their first couple of years, capped off with the substitute of vocalist Stefan Borsch with Christer Sjogren in 1979. With extra personnel changes over time, the music group branched into Germany in 2000, attempting their hands at German dance music. After just a few many years of multilingual shows however, the music group went into pension following a 2004 concert within their hometown of Arvika. Their albums continue steadily to sell well throughout Scandinavia, still coming in contact with the very best Ten in multiple countries years after their last discharge.
