Sweden, 1992, symphonic prog / progressive rock

ÄnglagårdHybris: This is one of those rare prog rock albums that was released after the onslaught of punk, and it shows punk why prog is still relevant, beautiful, complex, intelligent, challenging, and cannot and will not ever be killed. As for debut albums, this is one of the strongest I’ve heard from any band. Änglagård owns its stylistic influences, which is a good thing, but its the prog folk touches that really sell this album for me.
