THE MAGOGAS was formed in the summer of 2020 when drummer Lisa Cappellazzo (formerly T.H.U.M.B., Bodyntime, Kiran) joined guitarist Jacopo Nava and bassist Fabio Cester, who had been composing riffs for a while. Each band member brought their musical inspirations and previous experiences, ranging from Hardcore Punk to Metal and Grunge. This power trio plays instrumental Stoner Rock with Heavy Psych, Space Rock, and Desert Rock influences. Their music features loud valve guitar sounds, a hypnotic groove, powerful and fast riffs, grunge rhythm, and psychedelic solos with a dash of Thrash Metal. The band’s choice to forego vocals is intentional, as they want to focus the listeners’ attention on a cosmic journey without distracting them with lyrics.
In 2021, the band recorded and shared its kick-off demo and video online. The following year, they performed live at a rock festival, opening for international acts, and sharing the stage with other bands of the local scene.
In 2023, the band was hosted on local radio broadcasts, played more gigs, and performed in Croatia during the summertime. Then they entered the studio to record their debut album, 48 Moons, including nine tracks cherry-picked from those composed over almost two and a half years: forty-eight-moon time exactly. It's due for digital release on March 29th, 2024. Pre-save here!
