About this album

How much you need to know about the concept behind Emehntehtt-Re depends on what kind of Magma fan you are. If you’re the sort who eats up the French prog legends’ cosmic fairytales with a spoon, and are at least fascinated by (if not conversant in) their made-up language of Kobaiian, you’re sure to find it thematically significant that Emehntehtt-Re is meant to be the third part of the Kohntarkosz trilogy, which began with Magma’s 1974 album of the same name, and was finally followed up 30 years later on Emehntehtt-Re’s predecessor, K. A. (Kohntarkosz Anteria). However, the Kohntarkosz concept, which concerns an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, a modern-day explorer, and the search for spiritual enlightenment, probably won’t hold much interest for you if you’re the other kind of Magma fan, one who doesn’t give a fig about the mythology the band’s been cooking up since the early ‘70s, and is strictly in it for Magma’s sui generis blend of jazz fusion, art rock, and 20th century classical music. But whichever way your Magma passion moves you, you’re unlikely to be disappointed by Emehntehtt-Re. Coming a relatively brief four years after the band’s first new album in two decades, it shows that they’re back in the saddle with a vengeance; both conceptually and musically, it harks back to Magma’s ‘70s glory days. Drummer/composer/bandleader Christian Vander and his vocalist/wife Stella may be the only holdovers from that bygone era, but the former’s dark, dramatic vision remains undeniably intact

    Deoxysdog: You can either re-rip the album as a disc image and edit the start time of the sixth track to roughly six seconds earlier, or you can add six seconds of silence to the end of it, or you can use the Universal Scrobbler.

    Eh, probably my least favorite Magma studio album. But then again, I haven't heard Attahk or Merci yet, and I've heard that those are kinda bad.

    Sehe won't scrobble because last.fm deems that it's "too short." Any fix for this?

    i think the correct title is Ëmëhntëhtt-Ré. it's just written ËMËHNTËHTT-Ré on the cover.. just like the bands logo is MAGMA but the real name is Magma
