The Savage Rose was a danish psychedelic rock group, founded in 1967 by Thomas Koppel, Anders Koppel, Alex Riel, Jens Rugsted, Flemming Ostermann, and Annisette. Ilse Marie Koppel also participated. Their debut album was recently selected to be part of the Danish national "cultural canon". The first two albums have cult status in the U.S. The band has continued to exist without breaking up since their formation, although the music has moved away from pure psychedelic rock into folk, rock, gospel and soul territories.
