hm toughy. I have to go with Anekdoten. I'm really not crazy about neither band, but Anekdoten can write some nice tunes.

A difficult one. I still have to get into Anekdoten but I like what I have heard up to now. Anglagard had a very short but fantastic story. I vote for Anglagard only because it's one of the first "new" bands that I have discovered when I restarted looking into prog after a 10 years pause in the 90s.

Anglagard most definetly. Oh and Morningrise, have you thought about making a 70's Prog World Cup in the future or is that an idea your not very interested in.

Hehe - I betrayed my good friend John last time they were up against IQ, but this time around I´ll give em some love - if only for that powerful and slightly disturbing Nucleus. Anekdoten it isSax man

I have a feeling that this poll is going to be very close in the end.

The problem with this is it'll turn out like any other poll.

Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Rush etc. 

Unless he did it by albums maybe?

Isn´t Anglagard preparing to release their long awaited 3rd album anytime soon?
Maybe things´ll change regarding this poll then.

Nice to see a resurgence of those 90s bands coming together making new stuff. I´m so looking forward to the new Discipline release. I hope Mr. Parmenter and friends will blow my socks off!

A LP from Anekdoten would make it their sixth.

To speed this process up, why don't you make one or two more polls from a different bracket.
This wouldn't negatively affect the poll in any way.

Anekdoten, I never understood what people liked about Hybris or Anglagard.

Carp!  If I'm not mistaken I bought the first album from each of these bands at the same time way back when (1993?).  I bought Nucleus soon after it came out, but for some reason I did not buy Epilog when it was released, and then it became so hard to find.  I did not buy From Within, as rumor at the time was they had gone "alt-rock" (what!).  I did buy Gravity soon after its release and while it was quite different from their first two I soon learned to love it.  Did not get A Time of Day at its release (didn't even know about it!).

Made up for the missing ones this year, though.  Got Epilog a month or two ago, and just got From Within and A Time of Day last week.  So now I have all studio albums from both bands.  But who to vote for?!?!?!  I cannot decide.  Will have to ponder further...

Looking forward to new releases from both bands next year, though!  (I know Änglagård is working on one; isn't Anekdoten as well?)
