More than 18 months without being able to make a gig. This space of time, this imposed “pause,” was used to prepare a new album, a group album, as they had not realized for a long time.
Following the creation of a new line-up in 2020, they once again offered musicians to bring songs, Christian Vander never having made the deliberate choice to be Magma‘s sole composer. But in fact, none of the dozens of musicians who participated in this adventure had offered a new song for decades!
After “ZËSS,” which hinted at a rather gloomy future, this bright and resolutely optimistic new album is the result of a collective work, an “Operation Kartëhl.”
