Six Magics biography
SIX MAGICS is a progressive metal band from Santiago, Chile. The band formed in 1996 by five teenagers Pablo Stagnaro (drums), Erick Avila (guitar), Nicolas Espinoza (guitar), Juan Pablo Pizzarro (bass), and Sergio Villaroel (vocals).

The band recorded their first demo tape "Triloia De Un Guerrero" in their native language in 1997. In 1998, Juan Pablo Pizzaro left the band and was replaced by Francisco Sanchez (bass). In 1999, the band changed the line-up again, replacing Sergio Villaroel with Sergio Dominguez on vocals and adding a keyboard player Sebastian Carrasco. With this new line-up, SIX MAGICS decided to write their lyrics in English and tell the tales of Chilote Mythology.

In 2001, the band went into the studio and recorded their debut album "Dead Kings of the Unholy Valley." Early 2002, Gabriel Hidalgo (guitar) replaced Nicolas Espinoza and Mauricio Nader (bass) replaced Francisco Sanchez. The same year the band signed a world-wide distribution deal with Underground Symphony and they released their debut album.

In 2003, Underground Symphony released their sophomore album "The Secrets of an Island" without exclusive rights and the album was picked up by Hellion Records that distributed in Europe/Japan.

They toured Europe with a live theatrical play with actors that gave life to the mythological characters that is inspired by the concept story of "The Secrets of an Island."

Sometime before 2008 they replaced Sergio Dominguez with new vocalist, Elizabeth Vasquez. They have released their third studio album "Animal" that has been produced by David Prater (DREAM THEATER's "Images and Words" and "Scenes from a Memory").


SIX MAGICS play traditional progressive metal with stylistic elements similar to RHAPSODY, NIGHTWISH, and BLIND GUARDIAN which is evident by their third studio album "Animal." They were approved by the Prog Metal Team.

4 stars This band from Chile is quite interesting. This album had been in my Spotify lists for quite a while, and the attractive artwork finally compelled me to give it a listen. Honestly, I almost turned it off after the first couple minutes: the female vocals are quite strange, and I really did not like them. In fact, I didn't realize it was a female for a few songs! However, something keep me listening.

I'm glad I kept listening, for this band is very talented. After a few songs, I started to appreciate the vocals---they are certainly unique: almost growling at times. Besides the female vocals, there are some monastic interludes that remind me of some of Symphony X's earlier work. In fact, I couldn't shake the Symphony X connection the entire album, although they admittedly don't really sound very much alike. On the instrumental side of things, the band really impresses with a nice metal mix of fast and furious drumming, soaring guitar work, and some really special keyboard work that comes in now and then. In fact, the keyboards kept me listening: they are unique and quite catching.

There is nothing overtly new or revolutionary here, but Six Magics has crafted a great album that is worthy of any progressive metal collection. The album takes some serious and compelling turns once or twice, and this keeps things interesting. I will certainly be listening to this album quite a few more times.

Thanks to Plankowner for the artist addition.
