Magma Cardboard Sleeve & SHM-CD Reissues
Celebrate the golden years of the legendary French progressive rock band Magma by picking up 12 cardboard sleeve reissues of their albums with replica of the original Japnaese obi featuring the SHM-CD format and the latest digital ramastering!

Led by charismatic leader Christian Vander, the band successively released outstanding albums in 70s, which were sung in Vander's original language "Kobaian" and often played by irregular musical rhythm. The band stopped their activities once in the mid 80s, but they resumed performing live in the 90s, delivering the one and only rendition of music that continues to amaze the worldwide music scene, leaving a lasting impression.
