Karisma Records inks deal with Swedish Prog Rockers AGUSA

Karisma Records have inked a deal with Swedish Prog Rockers AGUSA that will see the label re-release the band’s first five studio albums.

AGUSA has been at the forefront of the Swedish Psychedelic Prog scene since the band’s formation in 2013. Based in Malmö, Sweden, AGUSA’s lineup of Simon Ström on bass, Nicolas Difonis on drums, Mikael Ödesjö on guitar, Roman Andrén on keys, and Jenny Puertas on Flute, have appeared live internationally both on the club circuit as well as at a variety of Prog festivals. They have, over the years, garnered a reputation for their ability to perform meditative soft parts, combined with epic interludes and the occasional trip to a rock hard darkness, all of which provide audiences with an unforgettable live experience.

AGUSA’s sound is one that effortlessly ranges from majestic beauty to violent outbursts. It blends tripped-out psychedelic and progressive rock structures aimed at instilling visions of nature and the cosmos. Whilst dreamlike passages meander into realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. This is instrumental music where the instruments, and the people playing them, communicate directly with the hearts and minds of the listener.

Drawing on influences from Nordic and Latin American folk music, AGUSA’s roots run deep into the ambits of space rock, kraut rock and jazz. Combine these varied aspects with the band’s traditional foundation, and you get a group of musicians who interpret things their own way, and, whilst AGUSAS’ music takes you back to the 70s, it is, at the same time, something new and unexplored. It is the sound of a band that has forged a strong musical identity for itself. One that is unmistakably its own

The five albums that will be released on Karisma Records are HÖGTID (2014), T VÅ (2015), AGUSA (2017), EN ANNAN VÄRLD (2021) and PRIMA MATERIA (2023). More details to follow.

Of their upcoming collaboration with Karisma Records, AGUSA had this to say:

Karisma is the most interesting and ambitious record label for progressive rock music in Scandinavia right now. We are happy and proud to join their roster of talented artists and bands. Great things ahead. Hold on to your hats!
