Magic Pie King For A Day on LP
The Norwegian prog rock band Magic Pie returned in 2015 with their excellent fourth full-length album King For a Day on Karisma Records. The band was formed in 2001, and their previous three albums Motions of Desire (2005), Circus Of Life (2007) and The Suffering (2011) were all very well received by both the press and fans.
Magic Pie has become a household name for prog fans around the world with their blend of classic prog and 70's hard rock inspired by bands such as Spocks Beard, Dream Theater, Genesis, Pink Floyd, The Flower Kings, Transatlantic, Kansas, Deep Purple, and Yes. Fronted by bandleader and guitar supremo Kim Stenberg, the band are known for their epic, energetic, melodic and sometimes heavy prog rock with splendid vocal harmonies and great musicianship.
Hailing from Moss, Norway, the band consists of songwriter and producer Stenberg (guitars, vocals), lyricist and melody co-writer Eirikur Hauksson (lead vocals, guitar), Eirik Hanssen (vocals, guitar), Jan Torkild Johanssen (drums), Erling Henanger (keyboards, backing vocals) and Lars Petter Holstad (bass, backing vocals).
King For A Day was mixed and mastered by Rich Mouser (Spocks Bears, Transatlantic, Neal Morse, Dream Theater) at The Mouse House Studios in Los Angeles, CA and contains six tracks of melodic, epic, and, on occasion, heavy, prog rock, that showcases superb vocal harmonies and skilled musicianship. Artwork for the album is by Chris van der Linden of Linden Artworks.
