Magnum was one of the first bands that I got into as a teenager - my first album being Wings of Heaven in '88 (when they happened to be finding more commercial success).
I soon rushed out to get more albums and soon ended up with Kingdom of Madness ('78). I was blown away. A melodic hard rock masterpiece.
I was not one for what I would call very melodic music at the time, but this album was something special - so well crafted in terms of songwriting, the interplay between the instruments, and the change in moods.
So I am hoping that there will be some interest in collaborating to get some of these songs into the database.
Here's one to whet your appetite, All Come Together:
The songs starts with a beautiful piano intro ...
Vocals enter at 0:36
Aaaahhhhh Aahhhh! 0:52 rest of the band enters
moar keyboards (lots more)! 1:16
guitar solo 2:44
If you would like to work on this and /or other songs from the album please let me know, I am happy doing the bass (and some guitar / reductions as needed) so I am looking for partners in crime to do drums, guitar, keyboards and vocals.
It's an awesome album - if you got ears, you gotta listen!
