5 stars Even though this album was released in 1992, it still has all of the intentions of an epic album that was made back in the 70's. Now I must admit that 99% of my music collection consists of music from the 60's and 70's and I'm a little bit more than skeptical when it comes to newer music.

The first time I listened to this album, I was hooked! Jordrok has to be my favorite and most memorable song on the album. I'll find myself singing the melody and even playing air guitar at any given time. Anglagards sound is fantastic and is a breath of fresh air for all symphonic prog fans, old and new alike.

Hybris contains very little vocals, which I don't mind since I'm not Swedish. Even without a standard dose of vocals, this band consists of top-notch musicians at the top of their game. The heavy bass tones, flutes and beautiful mellotron give this album a well rounded sound. The four tracks are very accessible and makes you wonder how a band that emerged from an unfortunate generation of music in my opinion, could produce such fantastic music.

If you enjoy this album, I highly recommend getting the instrumental 'Epilog' as well as the live album 'Buried Alive'.
