In 1970 an explosive compound of a cavernous bass and a hammering beat erupted from our record players, as an otherworldly voice chanted in a mysterious language.
Thus began a first, double album, simply entitled Magma. Its strangeness and creative force meant that Magma’s landmark debut immediately guaranteed them a place in music history. The band has since gone through aconstant stream of personnel changes, but the alumni list looks like a who's who of top caliber French musicians. In 1973, Magma gained international recognition with Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh. Between 1974 and 1979 the group experienced its most intense period of work, both in the studio and on stage: Ẁurdah Ïtah, a score for the film Tristan et Iseult; Köhntarkösz, dominated by its somber and majestic title piece. Üdü Ẁüdü, the perfect symbiosis between Christian Vander and Jannik Top, Attahk, with cover design by H.R. Giger, and in 1975 Magma Live. After taking time out to focus on various projects Magma returned in 1985 with Merci. Since 1996 MAGMA has returned to the stage and released 6 albums : K.A, Emëhntëhtt-Ré, Félicité Thösz, Rïah Sahïltaahk, Shlag Tanz, Zëss. They started a 50th anniversary tour at the Paris Philharmonic and are nominated to the French Jazz music award. Clearly Magma is the most influential of all French bands. They have left a legacy of music that defies any of the standard and convenient classifications of rock, operating instead in a realm of their own creation.
