I got to know these two bands at the same time in the mid-nineties, my sister gave me hybris and vemod on cassette. I like both but anglagard is a slightly more appealing to me. What about you?

Vemod is a very appealing album. I vote for Anekdoten.

A few years ago, I was trying desperately to find the Anglagard albums, and I ended up paying a fair bit for them.  Along the way, I read that Anekdoten was even better.  "What?!" I thought, "No way."  But after acquiring the Anekdoten catalogue as well, I can say that, while I enjoy both, I listen to Anekdoten probably ten times as much as Anglagard.

Anekdoten, to me, delivered an awesome debut album, and then got steadily worse and worse till I completely lost interest. Nucleus has 3 good songs and From Within only has one, the title track. Everything after that bores me to tears, they went from prog to soft rock.

Anglagard on the other hand released 2 of progressive rock's best albums ever. period.

Guess which one I voted for...

I respect Anekdoten very much, but Anglagard is an epoch itself, I think.

Anekdoten sounds more of both modern and emotional, in my opinion.

Of course Anekdoten!

It's like saying King Crimson vs Gentle Giant. I like both.

Sinkadus. But between those 2, Anekdoten by a hair.

I don't think it's really fair to compare two bands, of which the other only functioned for a couple of years and the other is still going strong. Yet: Anekdoten are ok, but  Änglagård was amazing.
