CD    MAGMA Ëmëhntëtt-Ré
Ëmëhntëtt-Ré
 
SEVENTH
 


At the doors of immortality, dreams the Great Servant of Ptah, God of creation drifting infinitely within his own mind, as he tries to awaken Him.
In its message, as in its genesis and its making, Ëmëhntëhtt-Ré is an intimate epic, an occult stride forward, a quest for the sublime.

LIVE IN TOKYO
 
SEVENTH JAPAN
 


This album, which is only released in Japan and which will not be released in any other version, documents two different shows from their 2005 Japanese tour. The first disc is the complete Kontarkosz Anteria (K.A.) which is by the long lived and fantastic line-up of Magma that existed during the 00s (Christian Vander, Stella Vander, James Mac Gaw, Emmanuel Borghi, Frederic d'Oelsnitz, Philippe Bussonnet, Isabelle Feuillebois, Antoine Paganotti, Himiko Paganotti) and has since broken up with a mostly new line-up taking their place. A great piece and a great performance. The second disc is potentially even more interesting, as it presents Les Voix de Magma performing Theusz Hamtaahk, Wurdah Itah and M.D.K.

CD    CHRISTIAN VANDER - TO LOVE (Remastered)
TO LOVE
 
SEVENTH A III
 


Seventh Records reissues the album TO LOVE, which has been remastered, in a digipack sleeve.

For some people, Vander’s name is always and uniquely associated with "Magma". The drummer’s musical journey has lead him from the craziest impulses to the search for purity, for the essence of music as it springs out, reverential, bare , recorded at its moment of creation.
(Jazz Hot)

With "To Love", you discover the roots of Magma and of all its musical adventures. After all these years, there can be no further doubt about the sincerity and the authentic genius of this self-taught musician, who emerges quite alone from a widespread musical nothingness. An uncompromising, arid album, a music of monastic purity which, as it were in front of our faces, succeeds in reproducing that unique sensation that is the birth of an oeuvre.
(Rock & Folk)

CD    Simon GOUBERT - Et après
"Et après "
 
EX 04
 

After five albums as the leader of a regular band - a quintet or a quartet - had the time come for Simon Goubert to use other facets of his talent.
"et après", which is a really original record, stands out from the present jazz production; an album which offers new and different things, from which emerge a palpable maturity and plenitude when you listen to it.

"K.A"
 
SR AXXXIV
 

So. After 20 years of evading the point Christian Vander has finally deigned to the return to the masterwork style which brought us all to his door in the first place. With our tongues hanging out. Of all the many noble attempts of the prog rockers to create a grand compositional style which blended elements from classical music with rock, none, in my view, ever reached the intensity, complexity and raw savage excitement of the great Magma masterworks such as M.D.K, Kohntarkosz, Theusz Hamtaahk, etc.
