Änglagård - Hybris (1992)


Essa banda suéca faz parte da nova geração de rock progressivo. Quando eu fui conhecer esse disco apostava com todas as minhas fichas e duvidava muito que poderia surgir algo tão bom e do mesmo nível do progressivo antigo (eu sempre tive um pé atrás com essas bandas 'novas').
Felizmente eu estava enganado. Hybris é um disco perfeito, ótimos acordes de guitarras, uma bateria empolgante, um baixo de arrepiar, e um bom e velho mellotron que nos faz lembrar o bom e velho rock progressivo.

Portanto, não deixem de conferir!

An inspiration for a lot of Scandinavian bands, ANGLAGARD's first production is a must have in any prog collection. Maybe one of the few albums that everybody loves, and it's not merely coincidental. After the decadence of the great bands in '80s, and the poor approach to the original style from neo-prog bands, ANGLAGARD arised like the true response for all those who considered prog music dead and buried. This album was a true inspiration for many Northern Europe bands like SINKADUS or LANDBERK, who emphasized the sadness and nostalgy found in "Hybris", making a sort of new "melancholic Scandinavian mellotronic" style. Precisely, "Hybris" is a party for Mellotron lovers. Is KC best spirit present at this album? Yes, but increased. The four long tracks are unforgettable complex and melodic gems, and I'm sure that any prog lover can't be disappointed with this magnificent and original masterpiece.
