This week sees the release of the new Magenta album “We Are Legend”. To coincide with this  Magenta release “ Trojan” as a digital download  in the Magenta Bandcamp shop. The track is a single edit taken from the 26 minute album version. Alongside the track are exclusive remixes of two other sections of "Trojan" in the style of Rob's project ChimpanA.

Christina says 

“I great to finally enable everybody to hear what we’ve been working on for the last year. We’ve been opening the recent gigs with this single edit of "Trojan", and it's a real barn-stormer of a track which really shows off the power of our new rhythm section.  We can’t wait for everybody to receive their copies of the album. We’re exceptionally proud of it.“Album available from www.magenta-web.com

Digital E.P available from https://magenta.bandcamp.com/album/trojan-e-p

 Here's what the critics are already saying about "We Are Legend":

" a major contender for the best album of the year 2017." Profilprog.com

".. a sublime forty-nine minutes of musical bliss and sees Magenta back in the top echelon of progressive rock acts where they deservedly belong." Progradar

"... sees the band reaching new levels of sophistication and maturity within their music." Progarchy.com

"great Magenta music." mlwz.pl

"....finds the boys and girl of Magenta in particularly fine progressive form." FabricationsHQ

"This will be regarded as one of THE progressive rock albums of 2017 – Magenta have definitely added to their own ‘Legend’." The Progressive Aspect

"It’s good to hear her (Christina) and Magenta, back in such great form. " Get Ready to Rock

Listened to 'We Are Legend' for the first time last night and I'm quite impressed. They have really been stuck in a rut in recent years , understandable perhaps given Christina's recent health scare, but this is  a really good 'comeback' album. Chris Fry is on top form going between Gilmour and Hackettesque type guitar licks while Andy Edwards has clearly now settled in to the drum stool while 'Tina is as good as ever. I would rate this as their first 4 star album since Metamorphosis. Good one!
