  • magma: eskähl 2020
        (2021, 2cd, france, seventh records)
October 8, 2021, Magma performed at 'Het Depot' in Leuven.
An excellent opportunity to see the band in concert.
Besides two minor aspects (no seats available although it had been announced as a flex (standing + seated) concert, and Christian Vander's drums that were too loud to hear the vocals properly, it was a fine experience.
I had seen the band a couple of times at the Zappanale festival, but I really prefer to see them in a non-festival concert venue. It's easier to focus (and that's essential with Magma).

"Eskähl 2020" has none of the above mentioned disadvantages. Recorded in concert (subtitled "Bordaux - Toulouse - Perpignan"), presenting a a super performance in an excellent mix, this is a nice addition to Magma's extended discography.

My advice: try to catch them live and make sure that you take "Eskähl 2020" home with you afterwards.
