Magma is a French progressive rock band founded in Paris in 1969 by classically trained drummer Christian Vander, who claimed as his inspiration a "vision of humanity's spiritual and ecological future" that profoundly disturbed him. In the course of their first album, the band tells the story of a group of people fleeing a doomed Earth to settle on the planet Kobaïa. Later, conflict arises when the Kobaïans-descendants of the original colonists-encounter other Earth refugees.

Magma is the sixth studio album from French metal band Gojira. The album was released on 17 June 2016 through Roadrunner Records. The album was recorded at the band's studio in New York City, and was produced by Joe Duplantier, mixed by Johann Meyer, and mastered by Ted Jensen. The album sold almost 17,000 copies in its first week of release in the United States, charting at number 24 on the Billboard 200, making Magma the band's highest sales and chart debut to date.

This Magma Live/Hha� from 1975 was the first album I heard from them and I was sold on the spot. I was already receptive towards 70's jazz-rock but this pretty much blew me away. The album contains a solid performance of K�hntark�sz (a 30 minute piece from the preceding studio album). The set list is completed by a number of very attractive shorter tracks from earlier albums and the 20 minute monolith called M�kan�k Za�n, which only appears on this album (as far as I know).

Vander and Lockwood were joined on the album by Klaus Blasquiz, Stella Vander, Bernard Paganotti, Gabriel Federow, Benoit Widemann and Jeal-Pol Asseline. New Issue Of Prog On Sale Today.
