THE MAGIK WAY "Curve Sternum": out now!
Woods, banks, breath in the mist... a man reflects, acts, observes. This is the habitat where winds "Curve Sternum" the new long-awaited album by THE MAGIK WAY. An authentic and direct trip, made of real feelings as the sound of the album, that envelops the listener through a vivid and obsessive mood, as tradition of this legendary band sprung by a glorious past, who was born in 1996 and starred in an unequaled musical evolution, between Alchemy and theatricality, choral and Hermeticism. In this album the musical aspect emphatises the originality and the essence of the release. You can find the decadence and dark mood of Paul Chain, the ULVER cinematography, the vocal and musical Expressionism of Mr. Doctor / DEVIL DOLL, the Italian Avantgardism of Ferretti (leader of CSI), the Badalamenti’s “Twin Peaks” atmospheres and echoes of imperative mood in the EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN way… In a few words it’s a complex but amazing Ritual in Music for a protagonist of Dark Music.
Tracklist: 1. I corpi pesanti - 2. La mano raccoglie - 3. A curva di sterno - 4. Yod-He-Vau-He - 5. Nel tempo restare - 6. L’orrore - 7. Scuotiti, oh vita! - 8. In alto come in basso.
THE MAGIK WAY drops first track off their new album "Curve Sternum"!
Sad Sun Music and THE MAGIK WAY, a cult band into Dark Esoteric scene, present the first song "La Mano Raccoglie" taken from the album "Curve Sternum" out on May 11th and distributed by My Kingdom Music. Find the official videoclip here: https://youtu.be/NMToroH4Gyo
The video is an arcane and obsessive trip into the essentiality and the intimity of a music destined to be an esoteric door to the innermost meanders of human feelings. "Curve Sternum" will be a great album between Alchemy and theatricality, choral and Hermeticism.
THE MAGIK WAY "Curve Sternum": revealed cover, tracklist and teaser!
The band has just revealed cover and tracklist of the album:
1. I corpi pesanti - 2. La mano raccoglie - 3. A curva di sterno - 4. Yod-He-Vau-He - 5. Nel tempo restare - 6. L’orrore - 7. Scuotiti, oh vita! - 8. In alto come in basso.
Everything it seems to be a penetrating musical concept (and not only), based on an intense theatricality that refers to vocal and musical Expressionism of Mr. Doctor / DEVIL DOLL, with echoes of imperative mood in the EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN way, but contextualized to the sound of the roots: the Italian Occult Music where THE MAGIK WAY moves, as one of the most enlightened protagonists.

New album for THE MAGIK WAY, legendary Italian band!
Woods, banks, breath in the mist... a man reflects, acts, observes. This is the habitat where winds "Curve Sternum": the new long-awaited album by THE MAGIK WAY, out on May 11 on Sad Sun Music and distributed by My Kingdom Music.
An authentic and direct trip, made of real feelings as the sound of the album, that envelops the listener through a vivid and obsessive mood, as tradition of this legendary band sprung by a glorious past, who was born in 1996 and starred in an unequaled musical evolution, between Alchemy and theatricality, choral and Hermeticism.
COLLOQUIO "Io e L'Altro"... reissue of a grey masterpiece!
It was 1995 when a grey cassette titled “Io e L’Altro” (the Self and the Other) was released by one of the most influential band of the Electronic Dark Wave Italian scene: COLLOQUIO.
Now after 19 years it was the time to dig up this masterpiece and Sad Sun Music does it with a CD format after the band did an audio restoration and mastering.
COLLOQUIO is well known for exploring the territories between electronic/wave sounds and the italian songwriting tradition. "Io E L’Altro" represents one of the early examples of their soundscapes. As many says nobody sounds and sings the inadequacy of this life like Gianni does. There's something more than mere "music" in his records and there's more than simple "poetry" in his words. Who loves last COLLOQUIO’s works like “L’entrata – L’uscita” or the previuous “Si Muove E Ride” will need to find the basis and roots of that majestic sound in this old but always contemporary output and will greatly enjoy.
Here is the final tracklist:
1. Intro (la mosca rossa) - 2. Io e l'altro (prima parte) - 3. Si chiude il sipario - 4. L'attesa - 5. Io e l'altro (seconda parte) - 6. Lui e' dentro - 7. Io e l'altro (terza parte) - 8. L'uomo in fondo - 9. Volo anch'io - 10. Il buon ritorno - 11. Sogno - 12. Per quello che ho visto - 13. Outro (la mosca rossa) - 14. Nelle mie stanze mute (bonus track)
