I recall there are at least a handfull of diehard Magma fans on this forum besides myself, so this thread is for you guys. Has anyone heard the new album?
I have heard a few excerpts and it sounds at least as good as Kohntarkosz Anteria released a couple of years ago. Just like KA, this new album was actually composed in the mid-70s but Christian Vander couldn't get it recorded then. Ironically, the album Kohntarkosz released in the early 70's is the FINAL movement, of which KA was the second movement and the new album is the FIRST movement!
This explains why at least one song on the new album I recognized as that fantastic song "Hhai" from the 1975 Magma live album. Pretty amazing that the "studio" version should be recorded for the first time 35 years later!
Anyway, if anyone picks up Emehntehtt-Re, post here what you think of it. It will be awhile before I can buy it--I'm broke.
