A light melodic approach and sweet vocal harmonies have made Garmarna one of Sweden's top pop groups. Their debut album, Vittrad, released in April 1994, was nominated for a Swedish Grammy while their second album, Guds Speleman, released two years later, received the Swedish Grammy award as "Album of the year." Released in the United States, the album placed high on the CMJ New Music chart. In late 1996, Guds Speleman reached the fifth position on a "Top 25" list compiled by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Societe-Radio Canada. Their third effort, Vedergallningen (Vengence), released in March 1999, reached number eight on the European world music chart.
