Magical jam sessions, flaming guitar duels, wars and victories. You're in the middle of it as soon as you listen to it.
'A great initiative, where everyone can contribute to a new portion of metal!' - Arjen Lucassen.
Magic O Metal is the multi-media project of the former After Forever guitarist and songwriter Sander Gommans and his companions Scott Wenmakers and Menno Kappe. With this project they make metal accessible to the next generation without the appropriate characteristics of the genre. No dark world and lyrics loaded with anger, but a story and concept that is easily transferable and enthusiastic to explore the world of metal music. Add to that the most illustrious quotes from Ronnie James Dio and epic metal ingredients and you end up in the world of Magic O Metal. A world in which Picu, Alex and Lexie compete against the evil Icepick to ensure the continued existence of metal music.
Magic O Metal is a journey with a lot of metal splendor, to add to the impressive Gommans catalog. He combines all the important ingredients of his past and the result is impressive. It contains everything that makes metal such a popular genre: technical perfection, sizzling solos and towering choruses that immediately nestle in your head.
Rodney Blaze (Ayreon, Star One) plays the role of Picu with his voice and his counterpart Icepick is brought to life by Sander himself. Marina La Torraca (Exit Eden, Phantom Elite) takes on the role of Lexie and Nick Holleman (Vicious Rumors, Sinbreed) injects his talents in the character of Alex. With his keyboard swirls and clever pompous elements, Koen Stam (Equisa, Magoria) reinforces the guitars and song structures. Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation and Maiden United) also adds some impressive guitar soli.
