4 stars ANGLAGARD...immediately they came out in front of us and immediately passed away...suggest this live work on Progfest '94 was their life itself.

Unfortunately, my experience for ANGLAGARD is poor and I've heard only Jordrök and Sista Somrar of all their songs recorded in the studio. Their studio albums are not now available and the used ones are very expensive for us to get. Why? Needless to say. :) As above mentioned, they formed in 1992, released two great studio albums and a live album, and disappeared suddenly in 1995. With only three-year activities, it's very rare such a lot of traditions they've born and made. We, progressive rock freaks, have many things to discuss about them.

Anyway, back to the review of this live we can listen to their live-performance on Progfest '94. After releasing the second album Epilog, I guess they should feel their limitation on activity and progressiveness. But believe me! What a lively play and performance! Basically their style was aggressive and eccentric guitar and rhythm section with gentle and romantic melodies including soft and cheerful keyboard, mellotron and flute sound. To be static and to be dynamic, explosion and calmness, can cross and mix with each other and there is well-balanced tune and sound.

Exactly in the live performance we can't expect the sound of perfectness and accuracy such as on studio work, but I'm sure it's really, really enough for us to feel the atmosphere and be moved and absorbed into their ability and greatness. Not overevaluatin'.

No, no, I wanna say they are not buried but alive in our mind!
