5 stars It's been a lot of years since I was such amazed about a new disk. When Anglagard released Hybris we discovered a band that was on the same league as the old classics. Vocals were good but couldn't compete with the instrumental parts. In Epilog they took a turn to a even more personal style, more mature and eclectic. It was really sad they disbanded before doing a third record in the 90's. I could see them on stage for their short reunion years later. They were presenting a couple of new pieces so we could know how they were evolving. Because of this and also because they have such a personal composing and playing style it was not too difficult to imagine how their new music would be like. I was more doubtful about the degree of compromise the different members of the band could have with the project. Last time they met they only did a few concerts a wrote a couple of unfinished songs. But after so many years we are lucky that they did a great job in every sense. The four tracks are an small universe each of them. They require several listenings for increasing levels of understanding of the music behind, and each new listening they deliver more and more. That's what prog is about. Isn't it? There's just one problem with this album: It's the unbearable posibility of having to wait another 18 years for follow up Anglagard's music. Anglagard, what you do is unique and wonderful. Please enjoy writting and recording new music for the upcoming years!
