Buried for a Reason

Although there are some nice instrumental sections that sound as if Anglagard is trying to channel Gentle Giant, most are short-lived and abruptly interrupted by interminable, barely audible passages that made me wonder whether my iPod had gone dead. Perhaps the intent was to add dynamic variety, but these unimaginative and lengthy filler sections succeed only at draining the energy from the piece(s), meandering aimlessly or just sort of dying away, much as the listener’s interest dies away. Anglagard has musical talent but doesn’t appear to grasp how to construct songs effectively. My recommendation is to download Gentle Giant’s seminal recordings instead, and leave Anglagard below ground.

Angladard -- Buried Alive

I downloaded Buried Alive because it was the only Anglagard digital recording I could find. I’d rather it were one of their studio albums, of which there are two that I know of. This is a live recording and maybe a little uneven. I'd rather the left Prolog off but for the introduction, I wouldn’t buy just that one song if you're trying to avoid buying the whole recording. Yes, there are subtleties to this music, this is Scandinavian Prog, they can rock too, with plenty of build up, like you want from Prog music. Oh yeah, they sing in Swedish, but not much, a verse here, a verse there. If you love Prog, try to get their studio albums. If you can’t wait, you’ll probably enjoy this.

Formed: 1991 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like the other Crimson Swedes, Anekdoten, Änglagård crams angular hooks and start/stop tempos into every moment they can spare. Writing lengthy symphonic pieces, the band sound like many big '70s acts but always play with a very tough sound. Meaty bass and scorched guitar tones duel it out with organ, mellotron, and hyperactive drumming, while folky Swedish singing and flute...
