More information: Swedish psychedelic/progressive rock alchemists AGUSA present their third full-length album, simply titled Agusa. AGUSA‘s output invokes visions of nature and the cosmos, their ethereal passages meandering into realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. While not an entirely instrumental act, backing vocal mantras only seep in through purposeful cracks in the construction of these immense hymns, adding an even more expansive sentiment to the proceedings.
The follow-up to 2015’s Agusa 2 (Två ) sees the AGUSA circle expanding their kaleidoscopic output which conjures images of nature and the cosmos, their extensive passages again leading the listener into fantastic realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. While Agusa 2 (Två) engulfed forty minutes of music through two massive tracks, Agusa sees the band delivering their singular brand of, trance-inducing, folk-inspired, occult 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 was recorded and mixed by Viktor Rinneby and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Bob Katz, and completed with art by Danilo Stankovic and design by Peter Wallgren.
