Magnesis is one of those legendary band that I discovered long time ago in my youth. Now the band are back with the album Légendes De Nos Campagnes, and the band was formed in 1987. The new album is their twelfth album and last for more than 68 minutes.
Magnesis hailing from the town of mustard andd plays neoprog.
The band was as mentioned above formed in 1987. Back than 2 high school friends Frédéric Przybyl (author) and Eric Tillerot (author, composer, performer). They were heavily inspired by Genesis, Yes and were progressive rock of 70′ lovers, they decided to form Magnesis a progressive rock group wich is on the same line as Peter Gabriel in Genesis and Christian Décamps from the french group Ange.
Since, Magnesisis pacing up and down Burgundy’s roads to perform and to revive progressive rock based on legends and medieval inspirations as English groups as Marillion, IQ or Pendragon
in the middle 80′. A spectacular progressive rock with costumes, make up and masks. Mangnesis music is close to the best of Marillion, French texts make us think of Ange and the show of Peter Gabriel`s Genesis.
