Inhalt der Mitteilung:   I can't believe I found the Anglagard web site. I am from Costa Rica (Central América). And wonder if we here will ever see the band around here... I love Anglagard music and just wanted to tell it to somebody!!! But their CDs are near to impossible to find here. The last month I went to México and could buy one...

Again...I wonder if we at Costa Rica will ever be able to see the band here...

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi !

As of right now Johan is playing a Fender jazz bass which feels like a good trade off between his fretless five stringed custom bass and a rickenbacker... I personnally love the Ricks but frequency-wise I´d say that the more frequencies you´ve got, the more you have to distort...

Makes sense writing this....probably doesn´t make too much sense reading it...

so, as for now Johan is playing a fender jazz bass, Moog taurus I pedals and a wide array of pedals including distortion, envelope filters, octave pedals, and tremolos to mention but a few.

all the best,

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi !

Just came back home from rehearsals where we have now played through all the material that we will be playing at the gig...Very inspiring...Even more inspiring is the fact that we have worked over some of the old songs and in a way " solved " arrangement problems that we never sorted out earlier...We reworked the end parts of two old tracks so that they are more aggressive, dramatic and actually more logical. Also note that the songs are longer not shorter...We have also started messing with instrumentation ideas on some of the tracks...sorting out Tords parts and adding new ones.

Concerning Nearfest recordings....I would be very surprised if the gig wouldn´t be filmed and recorded both officially and unofficially...There will be some kind of official taping I guess...

Have a great Easter...all of you.

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   hi, mattias since you haven't answered my mail concerning our festival, it seems that there's really no hope for an ANGLAGARD show in WÜRZBURG/GERMANY on the 14./15. of june. it's really a pity, your swedish compatriots and friends from ANEKDOTEN, PAATOS and ISILDURS BANE would have enjoyed your company almost as much as we'd loved to see and hear you play. but maybe we can get you for a show on the 19th of OCTOBER along with SIMON SAYS and the 21st CENTURY SCHIZOID BAND???
please keep the date in mind...

not me either, sooo sorry. It's a few miles away from the old world....

But if you want me and a bunch of freaks to see one of the most wonderful and mystic Progressive Rock band - that means YOU - just give Charly a positive response for the Artrock Festival in Wuerzburg, Germany this June!!
I'd love you to make this event even more swedish than it already will be.

Just a couple of lines from America ! I am in Las Vegas with some of the members from Pineforest Crunch.

Concerning the new Anglagard album we haven't really decided any details yet...Two new songs are finished in the writing but needs to be worked at in the rehearsal studio. Right now we aren't sure about how and when it'll be recorded. There are ideas floating around, though.

And yes the Stylophone, Speak & spell, synares or synkits are all great to play behind a drumkit....!

Take care and keep on typing in...It is so great to hear from you all.

All the best,

I was 17 years old when you released "Hybris", and it totally changed my music mind. It still is my favourite album. I wish you the very best and I will check in here quite often to follow your new-born progress. And hey, where are the two T-shirts I ordered from you in 1995? I am still waiting =) //

Det är super-duper att ni har återförenats! Kommer ni att ge ut en ny skiva nu då bandet finns igen ? Och isåfall ungefär när ? Jag har varit en trogen svensk fan sen 1993 då jag hörde HYBRIS för första gången. Men aldrig fångat er live. Kommer ni kanske ge några livekonserter i Sverige framöver ?? Jag är rejält sugen på att få veta dessa saker! Mejla mig några rader om inget annat.

//Hälsningar Jensa

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi. I think it`s so cool that Änglagård is back together! :-) I`ve discivered you in the last years, so I didn`t think I would ever get a chance to see you live (I`m only 22, so I wasn`t really into prog in 94). Heard you are maybe doing a concert in Stockholm before the summer? More info on that? Any chances of you comming to Norway? Keep up the good work!
P.S: I`ve actually got a stylophone! ;-) Borrowed it from a girl friend who has had it since she was a kid, and I`m planning to play it in my prog band. (and this was before I heard you got one) I`m a drummer, and I think it must be the perfect thing to play from behind the drumset ;-)

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi Mattias & Anna,

thanks for the comments about Orchestron & Stylophon. There are always some rare & obscure instruments of the past to discover. I've read once an article about the Orchestron but I thought it has been some sort of custom-made beast of Kraftwerk. In fact it must be a more "hifi" version of the Optigan :-))
Use it !!! Great idea! I myself play mellotron & theremin & other 70s keyboards, so would like to hear the "voices of the past" – and do it live!
One more question: how do you find the Orchestron & how much was the price???

Hope to see you live, Thomas

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi Thomas.

The Orchestron is a really cool 70´s keyboard that uses optical discs for it´s sound source. You are absolutely right about the Kraftwerk-connection. The choirs on Trans-europe express and Radioactivity are Orchestron choirs. I picked mine up from a guy in Florida about two years ago and it has become one of my favorite keyboards.

The sound is very similar to the Mellotron but as the discs loop when they play it means you can hold chords infinitely ( not the mellotrons 8 seconds ). Also the discs crackle and pop like a vinyl record which adds to the sound in a really interesting way.

The Stylophone is another one of my favorites...It is a little handheld monophonic toy keyboard made popular by Rolf Harris. You play it by pressing a sort of pen against a metal touch keyboard. The sound is very thin and nasal but has a very definite charm to it in my opinion. Bands that have used the Stylophone are Kraftwerk ( of course ) and David Bowie ( who was the only posterboy for the instrument, he claimed in the ads that he wrote " all " of his material on the stylophones - not too likely )

I don´t know how much these instruments will show up on the new Anglagard material. It all depends.... I don´t know if the progworld is ready for a Orchestron/Stylophone and Theremin version of Kung Bore just yet....I´d love to hear one though....

If you want to read more about the instrument above I have written about them at

Take care.

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi folks,

good news about Änglagård. I hope they will be so kind to play in central Europe as well (Vervier, "Spirit of 66" is good place for progressiv music, I have been often there).
But what the hell means Mathias (in the Interview) about "...Mellotrons, Orchestrons and Stylophones...". OK, we all know the mellotron, but what sort of stuff are the other two? The Orchestron, isn't it a rare keyboard of the old Kraftwerk-era? Don't tell me you got one...!?!

Best wishes & have fun

Inhalt der Mitteilung:   Hi !

Just wanted to drop you a line and let y´all know that things are on the move.

The band is rehearsing as much as we can to get ready for this summers adventures.
It is really interesting getting back into the old material again and to try to figure out what we actually played in 1992.

When it comes to other gigs we are looking over some different offers. It looks right now as we will be doing at least one more gig in June.
More info about that later.

Take care and keep your eyes on the homepage where we will be updating with more news and pics as we go along....
