Ruphus is widely regarded as one of the flagships in Norwegian progressive music. A band that through its first lifetime from 1970 to 1981 had more members than a football team, and developed from playing hard, progressive rock to becoming a leader in jazz rock.
The debut album “New Born Day” was was conceived in a house in Meråker (near Trondheim) in the summer of 1973 – but the band soon found great success outside Norway, and after a while they relocated to Germany.
After a long hiatus, the band has now become active again. Karisma Records will re-release their entire catalog of studio albums, remastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel, etc..), starting with “New Born Day”
