The more I researched Magma, the more I kept reading that they were even better live than they are on their studio recordings.
It certainly is where the first title track is concerned; the sound on the original of "Kohntarkosz" is somewhat muddy, but there's none of that here C. Moreover, there Mëkanïk Zaïn a fabulous violin player Didier Lockwood who adds energy that seemed to be missing on the studio album.
Kerry Livgren of Kansas once cited Magma as one of his more bizarre musical influences, and "Hhai" gives us more than a hint of the musical structures found on later albums by Kansas, particularly the device of doubling violin and guitar. The excerpt from "Kobaia" has more of a zeuhl flavor than its original, and definitely clearer vocals! Again, Klaus' ad-lib vocals are absent in favor of instrumental solos, and the pace of the music is somewhat faster than on the studio album something I've noticed about many live albums One thing I wasn't quite prepared for was the editing of the performance.
Usually, live albums don't use fade-outs on tracks unless they're continued on the next album side; but it was done several times on this album, and "Lihns" simply stopped, with no crowd feedback afterward. It took a little getting used to, but beyond that, there's very little to complain about. It's a great performance, and worth the extra money for this 2-disc set.

Translate review to English. The vocalisation is entirely fictionalised garb from an alien world, comparable to albums with the same trademark vocal style such as 'MDK'. The minor chords are heavily utilised in order to disturb the ear with admirable effect.
Hhai is another highlight that has an excellent hypnotic effect, almost mesmirising and you hardly notice the 9 minutes have passed before the next track begins. Kobah is definitely my favourite track on the album as it features beautiful psychedelic chanting and is a reasonable length that does not meander for decades but tells its ambiguous story and gets out. Lihns is very strange again with a heavy melody but not a highlight by any means.
The ethereal bass and violin are masterfully executed. In fact the entire album is bass heavy. In conclusion, Mëkanïk Zaïn first taste of Magma has been rather an intriguing, if difficult to digest journey, albeit a darker journey than I expected. I feel that the overall approach to the music is akin to listening to bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sunn O or Sigur Ros, in the sense that it takes a few listens to really appreciate the music, and even after many listens you are still unsure of how much you like the band or if indeed you like them at all.
I feel that Magma are great in small doses but can be rather draining in large doses. I understand the cult following for such a band, but they are certainly not my taste, though I admittedly appreciate the originality and influence and importance of Magma. EDIT: In conclusion, this live album deserves its cult following, and at first Magma were not my taste but then I began to acquire the taste and could not get enough of them!
Yes, but what exactly does their music sound like? In more conventional terms, the music of Magma is intense, complex, operatic, obscure and hypnotic: the classic '70s Prog equivalent of what would later be called Math Rock, practiced long before the term was ever coined. References are made in their albums to John Coltrane, Carl Orff, the sacred liturgical chants of Dark Age monasteries The only way to fully understand the music of Magma is to hear it, and this concert recording has long been acknowledged as the ideal introduction.
No wonder Bill Bruford was impressed. The escalating jam in Part Two is what initially converted me to a diehard fan, beginning with a beautifully understated melody on electric piano and gradually rising to a climactic frenzy, sparked by a particular drum fill by Magma honcho Christian Vander that never fails to send a shiver up my spine. A trio of shorter sings can be found on Side Three. Even better, at least one version of the compact disc apparently adds a further fifteen minutes of music not on the original vinyl had I but known Pardon the lengthy rave, but an indispensible five-star classic that opens up new musical vistas to the uninitiated deserves no less.
Well, the sound - or should I say the universe - that was evoked by it was so unique and out-worldly that this kind of music became known as a genre of its own, with Magma and a few followers as its sole representative. Zeuhl was born.
I was already receptive towards 70's jazz-rock but this pretty much blew me away. My issue doesn't contain the track from their defining album MDK nor the E-Re track, which is fine, the way to enjoy that piece is in one sitting, not by a 7 minute excerpt from it. If you like this type of music you sure own this album already.
Magma's music is world for its own. Avant-garde mix of Vagner,Orff, neo classicism, fusion and dark experimentalism, this music is far from easy accessible. Unprepared listener needs many spins just to catch it.
But if and when you will dig as deep as possible and just get this strange idea, mounted somewhere between master strokes and dark classic strings sound, you will find plenty of interesting things there.
I am quite a stranger in Magma's world, but living in parallel universe with them, I can really enjoy some of their moments. Possibly, I need more years! But even stranger ok, let say - stranger with some background could find this work interesting and even enjoyable. Because of excellent combination of extra-professional drumming, dark strings and bass-line. All them build a bit nervous, uncomfortable, but magnetic space, especially played live.
One of the most attractive Magma album for me yes, I am stranger in their world. Something told me it was time to give HHAI a listen. To be fairly honest, with the resources they have, HHAI actually works to an extent. Without a brass section to accentuate the MDK pieces colourfully, Didier Lockwood's violin adds more of a fusion-y texture to the sound.
Neither is too bad, but the studio tracks offer so much more. In contrast, the reworking of ''Kobaia'' in ''Kobah'' is done rather well as the bouncy fusion fits the track as well as that thumping proto-Zeuhl did back on the debut. Magma really does deliver very well not only on ''Kobah'', but on the other three tracks. In particular, that title track climaxes only like Magma could Mëkanïk Zaïn it, and it's absolutely spellbinding to hear the climb.
This molten boulder called Magma sounds quiet impressive alive. The musicians of Magma belong to the most disciplined ones and play alive as tight and as good or even better then on studio records, which is quiet uncommon in the progressive scene. This double vinyl contains the whole Kohntark, Magma is de Hundin What can I say about this album, that others haven't said?
Well for a kick off I bought my copy off Ian Curtis he worked in Rare Records in Manchester although I didn't know then what he would become. I've given this 4 stars as It starts well and ends well but some of This legendary live double album is beloved - venerated! There is nothing I can compare this to. You'll either love it or you'll hate it. You'll probably Mëkanïk Zaïn it the first time you listen to it; it won't quite fit into your music vocabulary.
Well, its Zeuhl. If music ever made a spiral, this is it. I am not sure what it is these guys are tapped into, The best Magma live album - their first, if I remember well.
Nothing's wrong here, two discs of pure zeuhl. But for a person who wants Other than the atrocious Mëkanïk Zaïn, I like all of their studio CDs, and they have a fair few excellent live albums as well. From amidst this barrage of excellent Magma music comes forth one CD i Report this review Posted by Pnoom!
Saturday, February 23, Review Permanlink. Magma and, more generally, the entire Zeuhl genre is very often lobbed in with the avant-garde music scene. Koenjihyakkei's hyper-active Japanese themes make them seem a jittery, super In the studio, Magma's music was a powerful, spiritually evocative experience. The fact that this live document proves they were on a completely different plane live just shows how awesome Magma really is.
The only thing that will cause the listener to feel a lack of energy from this record begi Magnificent record from a great band in the apex of their habbilities. The vocals are great, and the players are top-notch. Just to hear tha amazing Didier Lockwood in the last track is worth the price tag of this imported CD. I am new to Zeuhl but to my surprise I love It. I like much better the I first heard about Magma in late ,in that they were a band that played prog- rock,while singing in a Kobaian language I have never heard of any other band that has done that!
So, I decided to check this band out for myself,and I was not dissapointed! I got the "Live'' 2-cd set by Magma at Report this review Posted by jasonpw. Saturday, January 27, Review Permanlink. Live that had been done in Paris from 1st to 5th in June of was collected.
This record is a real jewel, a treasure. Though the quality of the recording is not very good, the music is rendered far more interestingly than in the studio versions.
Great writing, great chemistry, and inspired performances. Why do they only come to the States every 20 years or so After the discovering of the fantastic 'Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh', hearing this live album of Magma was a little bit of a disappointment to me.
The addition of the superb jazz- rock violin-player Didier Lockwood makes the performance of the Magma music different compared to the mystic atmos This was certainly a musical experience for me! I think that someone either loves or hates this music. I loved it! This was my first approach and now i am looking forward for more.
I found this on vynil luckilly! The idea of having lyrics in a made up language is Th version of Kobaiah its somewhat different from the original version The singers are also exceptional, especially mr. Paganotti adds a really nice tone, not
