    This sounds quite interesting. What the review doesn't say is anything about the significance of using the title 'Magma'. Did Hoff intend any connection with barmy but innovative interstellar jazz-rock outfit Magma, led by Christian Vander, or not? If he knew nothing about them (and nobody told him) that seems quite interesting too!

    Sorry, Paul, but the reason I don't mention Magma, whose music I am very familiar with, is that there's no link. If anything, the concept of magma, the physical thing, is more appropriate to the music, hot as it is; but using it as a device to describe the music, I felt, would be, um, a tad hoakey :-)

    Thanks for writing, though, and hope you check the disc out, it's a good 'un.
    Best!
