5 stars Without a question ANGLAGARD are/were one of my personal progressive rock favourites with their dynamic vintage 70's sounds and deep dark mellotron runs. Both albums "Hybris" and "Epilog" are killer albums of epic proportions and deserve to adorn everyone's collection. "Hybris" was their first album and really introduced me to their deep picturesque music. For those less familiar with ANGLAGARD will simply freak out over their real keyboard accents with mellotron, hammond B3, piano and church organ and their amazing guitar, drum, flute and bass interplay. This stuff really does sound like something out of the 70's with long songs and excellent musicianship. There is a little bit of singing in native Swedish tongue but is not ever in the forefront and gets lost in the instrumentation. One of the biggest highlights for me here has been ANGLAGARD's use of classic instruments including the ol' Richenbacker bass, Gibson electric guitars, flute and mellotron. Nothing sounds "synthy" or plastic here.only rich pure music. If you are lucky enough to snag a copy of Mellotronen's re-mastered version will get an extra bonus demo track of a early working of a tune from "Epilog". Essential music guaranteed...!
