5 stars One of the best returns ever!

Only three songs are enough to say that Magma have came back! I love this one because it's one of the first Magma albums i heard (along with 1001º Centigrades and Udu Wudu).

This album is the second part of the Kohntarkosz trilogy, being Emehnteht-Re the third and final part of the trilogy. I think this is the best album of the three.

The first track explodes, it's VERY intense from start to end, without stopping. The drums are better than never, and the choral voices are very strong. In the middle of the song, there's a cut with Stella singing "üts, kohntarkosz kohntarkosz kohntarkosz" that destroys my head!. Amazing track, just listen, my words are useless. The second track is more spiritual than its predecessor, but longer too. The chorus are fantastic and the music has different emotions and textures. A good track! The third track is INMENSE! it can be divided in two parts: the first 9 minutes and from there to end. The first part is a sad jazz fusion jam. It's important to mention that the song Om Zanka from Inedits (1976) was used to make this moment of the album. The drums are fantastic and awesome. The groove is beautiful!. The second part is the heaviest part of the album. It gathers intense every time, ending with an apocalyptic voice by Christian, that are perfect for what would happen the next record...
