New Song “Bortom Hemom” Available From Agusa

With the eponymous third LP from Sweden’s psychedelic prog rock alchemists Agusa confirmed for late October release through Laser’s Edge, the album’s closing movement “Bortom Hemom” has been made available for streaming in the player below.

Agusa was recorded and mixed by Viktor Rinneby and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Bob Katz, and sees the band delivering the singular brand of trance-inducing, folk-inspired, psychedelic rock through more traditional track lengths, offering five songs which range from five to ten-and-a-half minutes in length and are a bit heavier than the album’s predecessors.

Agusa’s Mikael Ödesjö offers of the song:”‘Bortom Hemom’ translates roughly as ‘Beyond Homeward’ and consists of two sections joined together by a bridge. The first part is in 7/4 and the second in 3/4. Perhaps our most ‘progressive’ effort this far. Enjoy!”

The follow-up to 2015’s “Agusa 2” (Två ) sees the Agusa circleexpanding the kaleidoscopic output which conjures images of nature and the cosmos, the extensive passages again leading the listener into fantastic realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. The record is completed with fantastic artwork by Danilo Stankovic and design by Peter Wallgren.

Laser’s Edge will release Agusa on digital, CD, and LP on October 27th. The track list is:

1. Landet Längesen
2. Sorgenfri
3. Den Förtrollade skogen
4. Sagor från Saaris
5. Bortom hemom

Agusa Inks Deal With The Laser’s Edge

The Laser’s Edge has signed Malmo, Sweden-based psychedelic/prog outfit Agusa for the release of the band’s impending sophomore album this Summer. The label also comments:

“With almost forty minutes of new material, Agusa delivers a wide array of seamlessly-executed, organic rock on the aptly titled ‘Agusa 2.’ The band’s tranquil output blends tripped-out psychedelic and progressive rock structures are inspired by more folk than occult influences, instilling visions of nature, the cosmos, and dreamlike passages, meandering into realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence.

“While not a fully instrumental recording, backing vocal mantras only seep in through purposeful cracks in the construction of these immense movements, adding an even more spacious feeling to the overall flow of the album.”

The Laser’s Edge will release “Agusa 2” on CD and digital platforms this coming July 21st, while Agusa will issue the album on vinyl through its own Kommun2 label. Stand by for additional info on the album to be released in the coming days.
