See http://www.airbagsound.com/ for sound samples and more info.

There is a new wave of Norwegian prog rock bands at the moment. Airbag is one of these bands and they have been compared to Gazpacho. I have just got their new album.

Please listen to the sound samples and make up your own mind.

Good band! I'd say crossover. Ermm
Well, MAYBE not crossover, but not eclectic.

This was one of the band I suggested in this thread:

http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=60500

though as Crossover. Or perhaps Space?

Airbag: Identity (Norway-2009).
Very good album of atmospheric progressive rock.

I'd like to add my support for Airbag's inclusion.  I discovered them last night and they blew my mind.  I will (hopefully) be getting their album shortly.
Rock On,

Our definition of Eclectic Prog is not that flexible, thankfully.
