MAGI is an Atmospheric Doom Metal band from North Carolina (USA). Founded in 2011 by Brandon Helms (of From Oceans To Autumn and Mountains Among Us), at first it started out as a metal/drone project, then quickly evolved into a full band profile. MAGI released their first ep titled "33rd Degree" in April of 2011 and their 2nd ep "December" later that same year. In the Summer of 2014 the band began recording their new songs and that’s when their blend of atmospheric doom metal and post-metal begun to take shape, with strong influences from YOB, Rorcal and Jesu. The first full length titled “Forget Me Not” is scheduled by January 26th on ARGONAUTA Records.
