    I like Elds Mark better them Jords-Yo, despite than letting down my friend Hughes. Kvazae is too obskure, but maybe they weren't prog enough to be included in Progarchides, like than Kvazar were.

    Kvazar is really good and - what is most important - proggier than Nordgasp. The prog component is about 58, 34%, which makes it eligible for the sub genre (no hyphen!) Seppton Scandy Prog.
