4 stars A few years ago I learned about the song Jordrok (thanks to progarchives) which I downloaded (possible then) in a same period as many other songs mainly to get to know a lot of progressive bands I never heard of till then. My conclusion after several listenings to all those songs was that Jordrok was absolutely one of the best, so Anglagard could not really be a poor band. When I started finding out more about the bands and the albums behind the songs I discovered that Hybris was one of the great classics in progressive music. I was astonished because it was a not very well known band with just a few albums in a short history. And they also sang in their native language, I mean who knows Swedish apart from the Swedes themselves and maybe a few other Scandinavians ? So the next step was to try to get the album, I absolutely had to find it caused by a huge curiosity. It was hardly to be found somewhere in The Netherlands but finally I succeeded. Again I had to listen quite a few times to get familiair with the other songs, but the ultimate conclusion was it was all very interesting. Actually it was more that than very good. One thing must anyhow be said: it is a very special album. After all I still like Jordrok best, although Kung Bore is a very good second, lots of variation, terrific composition !

The special element in Anglagard is no doubt the flute and it helps for the special atmosphere you find in every song.

Though the overall judgement of this work is realy positiv, I am not ecstatic about it. It's a solid 4 stars.
