Masters Of Illusion is based upon the stories of six classic Horror movie stars and Magenta’s stirring widescreen music provides an apt setting for these cinematic tales. 180g vinyl album in a gatefold cover (mastered from 96k 24 bit audio). Side D contains four 2020 Magenta remixes available for the first time on vinyl.


From The Progressive Aspect (Leo Trimming): Modern Welsh progressive rock band Magenta are a band who follow their own very distinctive melodic path, describing narratives through dramatic and emotional music. They create beguiling musical and lyrical canvasses. Masters of Illusion is based upon the stories of six classic Horror movie stars and Magenta’s stirring widescreen music is an apt setting for these cinematic tales. However, typically, Magenta do things with a certain twist and these musical vignettes tell us things about these stars which may surprise and move us. In a recent interview with Prog magazine, Rob Reed revealed that he struggled whilst writing their last album, We are Legend, deciding to give it a harder edge with more electronics and loops. In contrast, for this album he wanted to return to the roots of the band and “what I love about Progressive Rock: longer songs, great melodies, 12-string guitars, Mellotrons. Moog solos…” These are words that will bring joy to many melodic progressive rock fans, and those elements are certainly in abundance on this album. Alongside Reed’s undoubted compositional skills, Magenta rely upon the lyrical ideas and input of his brother, Steven Reed. Initially, the concept behind this album echoed the deceased rock star themed “The Twenty Seven Club”, but on this album they would focus upon Horror Movie stars. Steven shared, “Me and Rob both love the Hammer Films of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s and the classic Universal Horror Films of the ’30s and ’40s. We therefore had to choose six ‘Stars’ to be the subjects of the songs.”


Limited to a total run of 300 copies, Magenta‘s "Masters of Illusion" is being released by Plane Groovy as an audiophile double album. This 180g heavyweight vinyl album comes in a gatefold cover and is mastered from 96k 24 bit audio. Side D contains four 2020 Magenta remixes available for the first time on vinyl.
