Magenta Harvest started as a two man project in 2005 by Timo K(Havoc Unit, O, ex-…and Oceans) and Janne (Mygrain, ex-…and Oceans).
The idea for creating this band was maybe to continue making the kind of metal we used to do with ’95 era of …and Oceans. Of course that was only the starting point. The actual sound of the band was taking form after all of the members were recruited.
A few years went by quite fast as a duo. A lot of different things and ideas were tested during the years. Some material were created along the way though. In 2009 second guitarist Timo H joined the band as well as bassist Jonas (Chthonian). Four tracks was the result of the co-operation. Following year Mathias (Finntroll, Chthonian) joined the band.
Soon after that they went into studio and recorded those four tracks, their first demo ‘A Familiar Room’. They spent 2011 creating new tunes and they now had a second demo ‘Apparition of Ending’ ready to be released. This time we they help from Aleksi Virta (Finntroll) who did all the keyboard/noise stuff for the demo. Jan Jämsen, again, helped with lyrics as he did with the first demo.
They went on to release two full length albums – Volatile Waters in 2014 and …and Then Came the Dust in 2017
