[News] Karisma Records to reissue two Airbag albums

Official Karisma Records Press Release:

Most of you are probably familiar with Airbag and these two albums, but on November 20th we will re-release “All Rights Removed” and “The Greatest Show on Earth” on vinyl. Both remastered for vinyl by White Willow mastermind Jacob Holm-Lupo.

Karisma Records is repressing the remastered version of Norwegian Prog act Airbag’s second album “All Rights Removed.” Originally released in 2011, this was the follow-up to the bands critically acclaimed 2009 debut album “Identity.” On this album, the band took big step forward without losing their unique sound. 
Compared to the debut “All Rights Removed” has a much darker atmosphere and longer, more epic songs.

Airbag’s music is best described as Scenic, Epic Rock. Airbag’s four hugely successful album releases “Identity” (2009), “All Right Removed” (2011), “The Greatest Show on Earth” (2013) and “Disconnected” (2016), has gained the band a solid following and reputation among both fans and the press.

The album has been meticulously remastered for vinyl by White Willow mastermind Jacob Holm-Lupo, and is the second in a series of remastered Airbag vinyl releases on Karisma Records. Heavyweight double vinyl in gatefold cover, pressed on solid red vinyl

Following in the series of remastered, top end re-issues of Norwegian Prog act Airbag’s catalogue, we are thrilled to present you “The Greatest Show On Earth.” Originally released in 2013, this was the follow-up to the bands critically acclaimed 2009 debut album “Identity, and 2011 album “All Rights Removed”.

Having established themselves with a solid fanbase as one of Norway’s leading Progressive Rock acts, TGSOE was the first Airbag album to be released directly on vinyl, on both black and white vinyl. With a total run of just 1100 units, this pressing has been sold out for many years.

The album sees Airbag continuing their journey through atmospheric soundscapes and serious topics, creating cinematic pictures and bringing out emotions, pulling the listener into their world. They’re still giving us the Airbag sound, and this time the album is a bit rougher and with some heavier parts. “The Greatest Show on Earth” is a great step forward for Airbag, and adds new elements to the delightful Airbag universe.

Bjørn Riis (guitars), Asle Tostrup (vocals), Henrik Fossum (drums), Jørgen Grüner-Hagen (keyboards) and Anders Fossum Hovdan (bass), together with engineer and co-producer Vegard Sleipnes, have with “The Greatest Show on Earth” managed to raise the music of Airbag to the next level and even brought more characteristics to their sound. It has taken about 18 months to finish this record, but quality and musical craftsmanship are the essence in this production. Airbag is back and are absolutely a force to be reckoned with within the international music scene…
