Mago De Oz - Madrid Las Ventas DVD (2005)
Folk/celtic metal from Spain, music DVD released in 2005. Mägo of Oz was founded by the middle of 1989 by Txus (drummer) who little by little went recruiting to
the rest of the members of the band, until achieving a first stable
formation that would last up to 1995. Txus: battery, Mohamed: violin,
Carlitos: lead guitars, Chema: guitars, Salva: bass, Juanma: voice.
Every year Mägo of Oz became one of the most important groups in Madrid,
thanks to its original way of composing and to their devastating Live
Concerts. Their music was open to many styles and influences, but
overall their musical potential is based on the Heavy Metal and the
Celtic music, getting an original style as the critics in press and
specialized said. In 1992 the group was finalist of the Rock competition
'Villa of Madrid" In 1994, produced byTxus and Alberto Plaza, their
first CD titled Mägo of Oz. was released. This first self-financed work
allows them to play for the whole country obtaining a great success and,
as a consequence, they were chosen as group revelation of Rock in 1995,
in several publications. In 1996 the formation of the group was the
Carlitos: lead guitar
Salva: bass guitar
José: voice and keyboards
In the same year they began to record what will be their second album,
the Opera Rock Jesús of Chamberí", produced by Alberto Plaza and Mägo of
Oz. The record was published in December of 1996 under the auspices of
their current company Locomotive Music.
The tour that supported this second record took the name of 'Via Crucis
Tour' and it obtained even bigger success in the whole country. In 1.997
they decided to record five themes of their first CD with a remarkable
improvement of sound and production. This time was carried out by G.
Sider. The success of this work leads to the group to an unstoppable
chain of concerts and to their participation in great quantity of
festivals. Special mention is to make to the presentation of the disk in
the Sala Canciller of Madrid where public's affluence was huge.
Faithful to the style that so good results have given them, that Opera
Rock it could be called conceptual album too -, and this time based upon
the landscapes and the thematic of the immortal work of Miguel de
Cervantes, El Quijote, their third CD was born "The Legend of La
Mancha". We meet with a record replete of guitar riffs, melodies Celtic,
excellent songs and a special care over its production that make this
album one of the Heavy Metal's better albums ever published. In words of
Txus, the drummer of the band: 'Probably, this it is our more mature
work, in the musical aspect and in the treatment of the lyrics, in which
we have tried to keep a balance between the hardest parts and the most
The tour of 'La Leyenda de la Mancha' was called 'The Riiiichal Tour'
and it had several heights. The first one was to 'explode' completely
(more than 3.000 people) The Riviera sala of concerts of Madrid - with a
lo of people outside for capacity lack. The tour of this album was the
most extensive Mägo of Oz finds ever had (by the moment... 115
Another of the important milestones of that tour was in the festival
"Vineyard Rock 1999", concentrating to a great quantity of people (more
than 25.000), around a performance with pyrotechnics and music. Some
weeks later the van that transported the team of Mägo of Oz suffered a
spectacular accident, suffering several fractures their assistants, as
well as José, the singer of the group, to which they had to suture
points in the head for what they were forced to suspend several of its
concerts. "The Legend of La Mancha" was the resurging of the The New
Wave of Heavy Spanish Metal.
After their performance for the international festival EUROMETAL in
Madrid, with bands like Gamma Ray, Stratovarius or Angra, everybody
could see the high level of Spanish Metal.
Mägo of Oz published then "Resacosix in Hispania." A home-video where
more than 70 minutes about the last ten years of the the group.
Anecdotes, unpublished images, video-clips, concerts, interviews,
friends of the group,... all about Mägo of Oz. A very interesting
videographic document released together with a CD with two new songs. In
September of 1999, and for the request of their countless fans, that
first album of 1994 so nostalgic and so missed was reissued. Improving
in everything, better presented and remastering its sound.
Later the band keep on with "Santiago and Overturns Spain Tour" where
they presented their album FINISTERRA, with two notorious incorporations
to the band "Quisquilla " to the keyboards and "Fernando Ponce of León"
to the flutes. This album reached disk of Gold and later of Platinum.
