17.09.2012:     DEAN ALLEN FOYD joins Magnificent Music!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are very proud, exited and stoked to introduce the newest band in our roster: With DEAN ALLEN FOYD from Sweden we certainly live up to the promise to bring you the very best of psychedelic rock! The debut album by the Stockholm based quartet which was released in March in 2012 on the Swedish quality label Crusher Records (Horisont, Blues Pills, Spiders) soon grew into our album of the year! Those who dig contemporary psychedelic music represented by the likes of Tame Impala, Wolf People, Dungen, Sleepy Sun, Motorpscho, Baby Woodrose, The Flying Eyes or Siena Root will definitely fall in love with Dean Allen Foyd! The band's spectacular mix of British psychedelia, Delta Blues, Acid Folk, progressive elements and raw Garage Rock recalls the sound of the early Pink Floyd, Captain Beefheart, Love, The Pretty Things or Jimi Hendrix Experience.

But not only the brilliantly arranged studio album gained the band its reputation. The sensational and mindblowing live show is where the magic happens. DEAN ALLEN FOYD plays a different set at each concert during which the songs change their arrangements, spontaneous improvisations alternate with lenghty organ and guitar solos and Canada-native singer and guitar player Francis Rencoret moves like a dervish in trance on stage! DEAN ALLEN FOYD have played two European tours in 2012 including appearances at Freak Valley Festival, Duna Jam, Misty Mountain Festival, Dustown Festival, Gutter Island Festival as well as sold out shows in Sweden. March 2013 will see the release of a new EP on Crusher Records supported by a tour!

19.07.2012:     KADAVAR confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2013
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roadburn is excited to announce that Germany's Kadavar is confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2013 on Friday, April 19th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, Holland.

Kadavar is currently gaining momentum as one of the hottest underground bands around. Their thunderous take on 70s psych, doom, prog and stoner rock goes far beyond mere Pentagram, Sir Lord Baltimore or Black Sabbath worship. Of course there is a kinship with the aforementioned greats, and it would be easy to mistake Kadavar's recently released and impressive self-titled debut album with a long-lost, heavily sought-after relic unearthed from a charnel vault. But there’s more than just a visceral communion with the riff going on here. The screech and wail of distorted guitars, heavy blues rock shouting, and grit-laden clouds of twisted soul constitute the real reason to immerse yourself in Kadavar’s chugging yet soaring and distorted psychedelica. Kadavar’s immediate power and conviction will transport you to proto-metal oblivion!

Roadburn Festival 2013 will run for four days from Thursday, April 18th to Sunday, April 21st, 2013 (the traditional Afterburner event) at the 013 venue and Het Patronaat in Tilburg, Holland.

12.07.2012:     KADAVAR and BABY WOODROSE @ Stoned From The Underground 2012
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
31.05.2012:     New band in roster: KADAVAR
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please welcome KADAVAR to our roster! The Berlin based trio consists of Wolf (vocals / guitar), Mammut (bass) and Tiger (drums). Together they revel in 70s occult Rock, Proto Metal and Psychedelic Rock in the veins of Black Sabbath, Pentagram or Hawkwind. KADAVAR's self-titled debut album which was released at the beginning of March hit the scene like a bomb: The vinyl-only release which is being published by the German DIY-label This Charming Man Records in cooperation with American Tee Pee Records sold out three editions (3.000 copies) within 8 weeks of its release. The fourth edition has just been issued and is selling very well (60 copies were just snapped up by eager Greek fans at a recent concert in Athens). A worldwide CD-release of the album is slated for July 2012 via Tee Pee Records. Dubbed "a phenomenon" by Visions, one of the biggest German music magazines, KADAVAR can only rub their eyes in disbelief upon their meteoric rise: By the end of the summer the band will have played supports for Sleep, Pentagram, Saint Vitus and Electric Wizard, some shows on their short headlining release-tour through Germany were already sold out, the band's concert in Köln on 12.06.2012 will be taped and aired by the legendary TV-program Rockpalast and generally word about KADAVAR is spreading faster than they can count their new Facebook-likes. Currently KADAVAR are touring East- and Southern Europa together with La Octracina from Brooklyn. A comprehensive tour of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux and France is in the works for October/November as well as a short run of Scandinavian shows in December.

03.02.2012:     BABY WOODROSE release "Third Eye Surgery" in April 2012
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cover of "Third Eye Surgery"


Baby Woodrose live in Berlin 2011
BABY WOODROSE have just finished recording their 6th studio album entitled "Third Eye Surgery" and release is set for April 16th on Bad Afro Records. All BABY WOODROSE albums have a different vibe and with "Third Eye Surgery" they have made their space rock album. For the first time Lorenzo Woodrose integrates the heavy psych of his side projects Dragontears and Spids Nøgenhat with the fine song writing of Baby Woodrose.

No matter with how much the fuzz guitar is wailing or the echo machine is tripping, there’s always a good song hiding beneath the rumble. Several of them clock in at 6 minutes so there are only 9 songs on "Third Eye Surgery". Songs like "Nothing is Real" and "Love Like a Flower" have an Eastern flavour thanks to the sitar of Vicki Singh while "Just a Ride" sounds like a trip to India in more than one way.

Even though the central songs on "Third Eye Surgery" like "Waiting for the War", "Bullshit Detector" and the title song are very spaced out there are also a few tunes that sticks out. "Dandelion" is a sweet and melancholic psychedelic pop song and is also a duet with Emma Acs while "Honalie" is a dreamy ballad that makes time stand still. Almost.

"Third Eye Surgery" has been recorded in the Black Tornado studio in Copenhagen and is engineered by Anders “Evil Jebus” Onsberg and produced by Lorenzo Woodrose. The artwork is made by German artist Kiryk Drewinski who has worked with the band several times before and also did the artwork for the demo collection "Mindblowing Seeds and Disconnected Flowers" released in 2011. LP is gatefold as usual.

"Nothing is Real" has been chosen as the first single and will be released online February 20th 2012.

The band is set to tour in support of "Third Eye Surgery". Following Danish and Italien dates in the spring BABY WOODROSE will perform at Stoned From The Underground in Germany. A comprehensive tour of Germany and Austria is in the works for October 2012.

03.01.2012:     HELHORSE European Spring Tour 2012
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are happy to announce to be working with Danish Metal newcomers HELHORSE beginning this year.
Here is the band's press statement:


Helhorse announce their first Central European tour and sign a booking deal with Magnificent Music


It is with great pride that HELHORSE announce their new European booking agency and the band´s first tour in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Magnificent Music is known for their work with renowned rock acts such as Baby Woodrose, Siena Root and The Magnificent Brotherhood and their hard work ethics have given them a great reputation on the German club circuit.

Mikkel Wad Larsen from HELHORSE says: “We are very excited to start working with Magnificent Music. They are a hard working agency and we look forward to show Europe what we can do together. We have received great reviews in the German, Austrian and Swiss music media and we can’t wait to kick ass and play the songs live for you guys.“

Anders from Magnificent Music says: "Magnificent Music is happy and proud to work with one of Denmarks best and most interesting newcomers in the hard- and heavy scene. HELHORSE write songs to die for, and play shows to live for, right there in the psychedelic twilight of rock turning into so much more. We only pick the highest quality bands, and HELHORSE fit right in, both mentally and musically, with our goal to renew our approach and broaden our roster for future successes."

To start of the new cooperation the band will play six shows in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in March, were they will follow up and the phenomenal response their debut album “For Wolves And Vultures“ received in the German, Austrian and Swiss music press.
