OK, I HAVE A QUESTION HERE, 70'S WAS ALL ABOUT PROG ROCK, BUT IN THE 80'S WITH PUNK, NEW WAVE, AND METAL ON THE WAY, PROG ROCK STARTED TO DECLINE, AND ONLY A FEW NEOPROG BANDS WERE PLAYING, STILL RUSH AND PILLARS OF THE MOVEMENT WERE ON STAGE BUT THE DIRECTION OF PROG ROCK WAS CHANGING... LATE 80'S WERE NOT SO GOOD FOR PROG ROCK, NOT SO MANY NEW BANDS, RECORD COMPANIES OFFER NO MORE SUPPORT TO PROG ROCK. BUT THEN. IN THE 90'S. BANDS LIKE ANGLAGARD, ANEKDOTEN, DREAM THEATER, PORCUPINE TREE, SPOCK'S BEARD, ECHOLYN, ARENA, FLOWER KINGS. ETC. A NEW WAVE OF PROG ROCK ARRIVE. BUT THE ONE THAT STILL SOUNDED LIKE THE ORIGINAL PROG ROCK WAS ANGLAGARD. LIKE A BAND FROM THE 70'S WITH THEIR ALBUM HYBRIS HAVING SUCH A GREAT REVIEWS AND THEN MANY BANDS STARTING TO PLAY PROGROCK, SPECIALLY FROM THE SCANDINAVIA REGION.
 
SO THE QUESTION IS: ANGLAGARD'S  "HYBRIS" WAS A BIG REASON WHY PROG ROCK SURVIVE THE 90'S?
 
KEEP PROGGIN!

Did you really need to go all caps, I mean obviously you could go with regular cap and non-cap conventions.  I'd have to say no because I've never listened to anything by them. 

NO DISRESPECT INTENDED BUT i JUST HAVENT LISTENED TO ANYTHING THEY'VE DONE.  YOU'RE NOT A CAD DRAFTER BY ANY CHANCE?  WE DO NOTES IN ALL CAPS AND IT'S ABOUT CLARITY RATHER THAN SHOUTING IN TYPE.  AND YES i DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT THE APOSTROPHE.  the omission of the question mark was accidental the omission of punctuation here marks was intentional

No, 80s neo-prog was the last attempt to keep the genre alive.

No, prog would have took the same course with or without Anglagard. Having said that they did release 2 of the finest albums in the genre since the 70's golden years.

The ninties saw a  general shift in attitude about music. Proper bands that could play their own instruments came back into vogue basically because people got fed up with the prefrabicated over produced bullsh*t that littered the eighties music scene. Nirvana and Oasis became massive in the 90's showing this shift as well as anything.
The most important band to me in the British rock scene was Mansun who produced one of the best albums of the decade with Attack Of The Grey Lantern including more than a few nods to progressive rock. Radiohead also emerged and were actually tagged 'prog rock' in some quarters. It was a safe time for prog bands too emerge from the closet properly and with a proper sense of pride about what they were doing. There was also too some extent a positive re-evaluation of progressive rock. It was just a very healthy decade for music (despite what Walter may think otherwiseWink)

When i listened to Anglagard i don't have the impression that it has been made in 1992. To me, it's the closest thing prog has made in the 90's that sound like a 70's album. But i won't say that this is a rebirth of Prog Rock. I only think that it's one of a few bands that have done  Prog albums in the spirit  and the sounds of the 70's. Mariillion and IQ and the movement of Neo Prog have started the rebirth of Prog, if we can talk about "rebirth"

There was no need for it to be reborn, because it never died in the first place.

Having said that, Hybris is a stunning album.

Anglagard was an important band in the 90's scene (sometimes called third wave).  Sweden was important to that.

 I'd cite the Swedish Art Rock Society, founded in '91, which sought to restore the traits of classic progressive rock, and had Par Lindh as chairman. That was important and played a part in the rise of a neo-classic Prog scene that got going in Sweden, and spread.  Bands such as Par Lindh Project (Par Lindh being chairman), Anekdoten, and Anglagard  were spring-boarded, to quite an extent, due to the foundation of the Swedish Art Rock Society's values which was concerned with bringing back qualities/ spirit of classic progressive rock, and set out to do so, but progressive rock never ceased to exist.  I guess they helped to popularise more retro prog in a way (or neo-classic prog revival).  And then Sweden's The Flower Kings quickly followed, which is obviously retro.

Par Lindh and the Swedish Art Rock Society were important to the third wave.

I think the influence would have been a lot bigger if the internet was a factor then. A huge album in my opinion.

The Swedish Art Rock Society was the reason......Anglagard was the symbol of the rebirth.
