Magg biography
MAGG is comprised of five classical musicians, apprentices of prominent classical maestros, like Carlos Martínez Larrauri (Conductor of UNAM-ENM's Classical Guitar Orchestra), Francisco Navarro Lara (Conductor of various orchestras and personalities like José Carreras and Montserrat Caballé) and 'popular-music' composers (Enrique Quezadas, Hiram Gómez, Carlos 'Bozzo' Vázquez). The members of MAGG are: Alfred MERRY (vocals), Ivan (bass), Sergio (drums), Luis (keyboards) and 'Yito' (guitar).

The group was formed in 2008, in Cancun, Mexico. MAGG soon achieved local awards (first places in several Battles of the Bands, presence in festivals) and released two demo recordings that obtained international acceptance through the principal social-network at the time: MySpace; having almost 10,000 followers and over 100,000 views. After this period the band members decided to keep playing, now in a lower profile, focusing their efforts to continue their musical formation.

At the end of 2012, MAGG entered to the studio with the conviction to release its first album. These sessions surpassed 92 minutes of music, pushing them to publish the album in a two-disc box set. In mid-2013 the album, now entitled ''Birth / Revival'', was released (and entirely performed) in a successful opening concert. The independent album ''Birth / Revival'' is distributed with the help of Mixdown Records and it is available on every major online store (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify). MAGG has released musical videos for two singles: 'Brightness' and 'Mind's Conflict'.

MAGG's sound has been compared to progressive metal pioneers such as DREAM THEATER.

Review by aapatsos
Special Collaborator Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams

2 stars This young band from Mexico have set off their career with a rather ambitious and risky project: a debut, double, album with a length that exceeds 90 minutes. Hailing from that part of the world, the sound of Birth/Revival is not a surprise: "typical" South American (allow me the inclusion of Mexico in this category) pompous power/progressive metal with emphasis on riffology and virtuosity.

The band members sound as fairly accomplished players, with compositions that have a start and an end, with adequate changes, heavy riffing, plethoric use of keyboards and so on. Although somewhat lacking on the innovation front, there is little wrong with the structure of songs, if one was to exclude the often long and unnecessary soloing of guitars and keyboards. The main problem appears in the vocals, where Afred's tonality and accent could certainly benefit from significant improvement. The problem can be so bad at times, that a track can be rendered "unlistenable".

Influences from (mainly) Dream Theater and Symphony X can be heard almost throughout the entire album, augmented with references to Helloween-type power metal (Silly Wisdom), neoclassical passages (Brightness) and (a nice surprise) 70's heavy prog-driven riff lines (Modern Life). Birth is generally the more "ferocious" part with Revival providing the "mellower", more mature, view and probably contains better and more interesting compositions overall.

The existence of great and pretty bad moments within the same track proves the inconsistency of this album, which can in a way be justified by the enthusiasm of the band. I would personally prefer to see a 45min album with the best ideas, rather than a 90min exhibition of talent, which runs a big risk of becoming tiring, especially given the maladies mentioned above. There is a lot of room for improvement for Magg, but also signs of quality, on which they would have to concentrate.

Best moments: Beyond, Chinese Room, Modern Life
