|Titel||Ekstasis: Live in Rome|
|Genre||Progressive / Neoprog / RIO|
|Omschrijving||This smells strongly of British Progressive rock,
some Quintessence, some Deep Purple (with flute
instead of vocals). The organ and flute, and gung-
ho attitude, reminds a bit of both Focus and Out of
In April 2018 Agusa embarked on a short tour in
Italy. The first stop was at Stazione Birra in Rome
where the show was recorded by the resident sound
technician Alex Di Nunzio. The full gig – without
any overdubs – is now released by Kommun2 Records.
The songs on "Ekstasis - Live in Rome" contain much
of the playfulness and improvisational bravado that
fans have come to expect from these Swedish
rockers. This is the sequel to the live album
"Katarsis", but twice as long and with previously
unheard renditions of some of the tracks performed
exclusively for these Italian gigs. The "Ekstasis"
cover features a simple, pencil-drawn picture of
the “flower woman” that has become synonymous with
Agusa in 2018. I was made by Swedish artist Robin
Gnista and was originally sketched out to reflect
the complex, yet raw approach of the music. This is
the first Agusa album featuring the organ playing
of Jeppe Juul and it was mixed by bass player
Tobias Petterson together with sound technician
Emil Isaksson. This may very well be looked back
upon as the most ambitious release from K2.|
