Änglagård

Änglagård
Country
Sweden
Profile
Änglagård is a symphonic progressive band from Sweden. Their 1992 debut, Hybris, brought them international acclaim as it is considered one of best albums of this genre released in the decade. Their sound combines elements of Genesis, Shylock, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, and Samla Mammas Manna, though the underlying writing style is not too reminiscent of any one of these bands. Drenched in analog keyboards, Mellotrons, dual guitar and flute, their violently dynamic music is backed up by a tight rhythm section featuring a virtuoso classically-influenced drummer.
