...MAGIC PIE started to take shape during autumn 2001. The members came from a wide variety of musical background, each one previously playing in several bands and projects of different genre.Read More...
...Actually the band first started out playing cover-songs along with a couple of own songs. After fooling around with the covers for a while, suggestions were made to cut them out and completely go for own songs. This proved to be a major turnpoint, and really set the band into workmode...
...so, intentions was to create a “progressive” sound texture in the spirit of the `70´s, and to blend musical tendencies from both back then and from today´s “progressive” scene.
...MAGIC PIE feel fortunate with what could to be perfect timing for releasing progressive rock, which at the moment seems to be heading for a full worldwide renaissance...
...the common factor playing as the key and the link between all members, is the mutual love for listening to bands and artists a little to the “side” of what have been the mainstream rock trend in both the `80´s & `90´s, and of course the fact that the great musical “revolution” of the `70´s is firmly seated within all as no less than a fantastic source of inspiration...
...PIE never set out to make songs sounding like this and that, and was never interested in trying to copy someone else´s style and signature. Instead we have tried to extract the different musical/instrumental influences buried inside each member.
...the first CD released in 2005 mirrors a wide spectre of styles, and although all the songs are a piece of the PIE, we all have come to the conclusion that CHANGE, closely backed up by themes in the next songs, probably became the most representative framework for the future of the band.
...the new CD, "Circus of life" is a concept album aiming to bring the heritage from the previous album a step further.
