Magma is a progressive group led by drummer/composer/vocalist Christian Vander that has been active in the classic period and in the 21th century. The music of Magma is often categorized as zeuhl, which means celestical of heavenly in Kobaïan, Magma’s own language! The band doesn’t clearly fit in any other progressive subgenre, though avant-prog would qualify.
Magma was founded in Paris, France in 1969, they disbanded in 1983 –and was reformed in 1996. Magma were and remain a very influential group for early fusion inspired by John Coltrane and are usually the first band name mentioned for the sub-genre of zeuhl. Magma usually avoids the ease and stands out quickly from his contemporaries. A rigorous, fiercely, hypnotizing and demanding music with powerful and implacable polyrhythm.
