4 stars Having ordered Viljans Oga recentlty I thought I might as well pick this up as well. Hybris is undoubtedly one of the great masterpeices of symphonic prog and sensibly Anglagard don't veer too much from the core qualities that made that such a great album. Its awash with Mellotron of course and the music transports to some dark corner of Scandanavia where strange litte creatures torment the dreams of hard working country folk (well you know what I mean!). Its dark melancholic and never anything other than compelling.

The recording is very high end from any standpoint. Beautifull instrumentation as organ and mellotron dovetail perfectly with flutes and violins. The drumming is spot for me. Thats such an important part of any symphonic prog album and there is no shortage of quality in that dept. The main gripe is perhaps the lack of vocals that were present on Hybris but listening back again I don't really miss them that much to be honest.I'm inclined to think that this is as good as Hybris if not really showing anything particularly new.
