Two Swedish bands that are somewhat similar stylistically. Which one do you prefer?

I've only been able to hear one of each. Anglagard's Hybris was significantly more impressive than Wobbler's new one. But that might be an issue of comparing the better one of the first band to the lesser one of the second. Would like to get the other albums of both bands I don't have.

Anglagard.

When I listened to Hybris, the only thing that could keep me from believing it to be a 70s prog masterpiece was the production and sound quality. That album is just unexplainably good.

Only one of them is Swedish.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

Oh f**k, you're right. Wobbler are Norwegian. Confused

Since I had to go to Norway to see them live I can once again confirm that Wobbler is definitely Norwegian.

But I will have to be patriotic and support the local talent here!

Änglagård get my vote, but Wobbler is probably my favourite currently active Scandinavian band.

The first album from Anglagard is incredible. Probably the best of the '90. Anglagard gets my vote.

I can't stand Anglagard.  A bunch of unrelated passages haphazardly strung together to make long pieces.

Wobbler is guilty of this too, but at least Hinterland is incredibly melodic and enjoyable.

Anglagard, as much as I like Wobbler neither album beats Hybris or Epilog (though that might have been different if Afterglow was a bit longer).
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

Anglagard will win this in a landslide, as worthy as Wobbler is.

 
To make it interesting, add Anekdoten and Opeth and see what happens!  (Anekdoten would get my vote in that case.)

Why, since the three mentioned bands are very different to Anglagard and Wobbler? Perhaps bands like The Tangent would be better.

It seems like stylistically those bands would appeal to the same people--it might be interesting to see which is preferred.  PoS is different to my ears, and The Tangent drastically different.  But that's just me.

Anglagard. Long and harder, no doubt.
