MAGMA - MEKANIK KOMMANDOH
Reference AKT 10
MEKANIK DESTRUKTIW KOMMANDOH is considered by many to be the ultimate MAGMA masterwork. This was recorded with an orchestra choir 2 month before starting the original studio version.
From the very first short version recorded in the summer of 1971 on the compilation album “PUISSANCE 13 + 2” to the spring 1973 version on the eponymous album, “MEKANIK DESTRUKTIW KOMMANDOH” slowly evolved over time. “MEKANIK KOMMANDOH” is the last stage before the definitive version. Recorded in January 1973, it mirrors a concert Magma put on two months earlier at the Sigma Festival in Bordeaux. In this largely acoustic rendition, the STORCHHAUS orchestra choir magnificently complements Stella’s and Klaus’s voices.
