New Airbag Album2013-09-12 by Finbar | 9 Comments
|Up-and-coming Norwegian prog band Airbag have announced their 3rd release - after 2011's All Rights Removed which won 5 Progressive Album of the Year awards - entitled The Greatest Show On Earth for release in October.|
On their Facebook page they write: "Airbag are continuing their journey through atmospheric sounds and serious topics, creating cinematic pictures and bringing out emotions, pulling the listener into their world. The Greatest Show On Earth is a cohesive album with strong emphasis on musical themes and arrangements. The listener is treated to a wide sonic experience, from massive walls of sound to ambient textures and soulful soundscapes. The lyrics deal with the individual and its growing feeling of alienation and distrust in society and the established authorities. At the same time, we are manipulated and kept in a comfortable state of mind, believing we’re in control of our self-centered lives".
The tracklist is as follows:
1. Surveillance - Part I
3. Silence Grows
4. Call Me Back
5. The Greatest Show On Earth
6. Surveillance - Parts II & III

Okay. Will check it out when it releases.
I'll try and review it so some more Sputbros see it
Also check out All Rights Removed while you wait, that's an amazing album, full upload on YouTube
All Rights Removed was pretty good from what I remember. Will probably give this a listen when it comes out.
All Rights Removed grew on me quite a bit. The first 2 minutes of that song are fucking bone chillingly good.
Expectations are fairly high. Better be at least 4 stars.
I'm thinking this could be even better than ARR, from the previews they're growing more into their own sound and away from Pink Floyd influences. Can't wait man
