3 stars French band MAGNESIS was formed back in 1987, and has been a fairly productive band since they released their debut album "Les Voyages de Mikado" back in 1993. They have eight full length albums to their name as of 2013, of which seven are studio productions. The live album "Faits D'Hiver..." is their most recent CD, and was released by Musea Records in 2012.

As I haven't explored any of Magnesis studio albums, I can't really tell if this live album is representative of their music as such. Due to the somewhat substandard quality of the sound recording this isn't an album I'd suggest to those unfamiliar with the band anyhow, but if you fancy checking out a band blending influences from AOR, symphonic progressive and neo progressive rock in a live setting you should probably find this production to be a satisfying one. Still, my main conclusion is that "Faits D'Hiver..." first and foremost should come with a recommendation to existing fans who'd like to experience how this band sounds live on stage.
