This is a last part of my "Non" polls, this time it's not just about Swedish Prog without their "national" subgenre, but without all subgenres around Metal.

Voted Kaipa for their 70's work, though their newer stuff is alright to. Others I enjoy are Atlas, Beardfish, and of course Anglagard.

I'm enjoying Brighteye Brison right now, this is very coherent, pleasant and sophisticated Symphonic Prog music - not as boring as The Flower Kings and not as cold and aloof as Anglagard. Especially the last two BB albums are real masterpieces!
 
It's a pity they're somewhat neglected on this site. Probably because they're just overshadowed by above mentioned? Confused

It's between Algarnas Tradgard, Kebnekaise, Bjørn J:Son Lindht, Arkimedes Badkar, SMM and My Brother the Wind. Today I am going with Algarnas Tradgard

Went with Anekdoten, although I love Magic Pie's first album (the one with the apple). Haven't really absorbed their later material yet.

Anglagard all the way! I'm appreciating them more and more as time goes on. The only modern Symph Prog I can really tolerate, really. Cool I love me some of that Samla and Brother Wind too.
