Sad to see Sinkadus with no votes. Anekdoten, Anglagard then Sinkadus.

Missing in Action:
- Dungen
- Bo Hannson
- Landberk

In any case, Anekdoten, with Anglagard close behind.

Landberk would be in my top three behind Anekdoten and Anglagard. The Swedish holy trinity.Big smile

As a swedish person who has progressive rock as a favorite genre, I must say my country's version of prog is surprisingly boring. I mean srsly, I couldn't find ONE band worth seeing on "Sweden Prog Fest". That's just sad, and strange. The only one here that I actually enjoy is "My Brother the Wind". Their first album was really good and their last was even better due to the extended variation in the soundscapes and use of more different instruments. Maybe not my favorite band at the moment or whatever, but they are great and I'll buy their next album or attend any show nearby without thinking twice.

As masterful as Destined Solitaire is, i listen to all of Anekdoten's albums and many more times too.

Of course, Canada is much bigger, Russia is even biggest country - and they haven't too much successful bands inside or outside Prog.

I couldn't stand the thought of Introitus without a vote. An absolutely marvellous band.

Hm, really isolated case of anti-patriotism. Just My Brother the Wind seem to me boring and dull ... Do you know Brighteye Brison? I recommend!Thumbs Up
