Magenta Harvest - Biography
Magenta Harvest started as a two-man-project by Timo K (Havoc Unit, O, ex-...And Oceans) and Janne (MyGrain, ex-...And Oceans) in 2005. The idea for creating the band was to continue making certain kind of metal they used to do during the '95-era of ...And Oceans. Of course, that was only the starting point. The actual sound of the band was taking form after all the members were recruited. A few years went by quite fast as a duo. A lot of different things and ideas were tested during those years; some material was created along the way though. In 2009 second guitarist Timo H joined the band and so did bassist Jonas (Chthonian) as well. Four tracks of music was the result of this line-up's co-operation. During the following year Mathias (Finntroll, Chthonian) joined the band. Soon after that they went to a studio and recorded those four tracks, their first demo A Familiar Room. The year 2011 was spent creating new tunes for the band's second demo, Apparition Of Ending, which was released in 2012. They also received help from Aleksi Virta (Finntroll) who did all the keyboard/noise stuff for the demo. Jan Jämsen, again, helped with the lyrics as he did with the first demo. Magenta Harvest's debut album, Volatile Waters, was released in the beginning of 2014 via Inverse Records.
