After serving as the vanguard of the Chilean Metal scene for more than 12 years, Six Magics is without question one of the most important musical exports from this remarkable country. With an emphasis on building an international presence, their records have been sold in a wide variety of countries, continents and cultures. Additionally, they have shared stages with the likes of international touring acts Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody and Tarja Turunen (ex Nightwish). In 2006, they released "Dead Secrets", their first live DVD containing songs from their two previous albums: "Dead Kings of the Unholy Valley" and "The Secrets of an Island". After the DVDs release, the decision was made to immediately record a third record with the legendary multi-platinum producer David Prater. His groundbreaking work with Dream Theater on two of their most successful recordings, "Images and Words" and "A Change of Seasons", established Prater as perhaps the most sought after producer in all of modern progressive rock. His rich track record also contains an impressive list of best selling mainstream rock artists from the last twenty years (Firehouse, Arcade, Nightranger, Stephen Pearcy, etc.). From a creative standpoint, Six Magics has experienced a remarkable growth spurt over the last three years beginning with the decision to enlist the services of Prater and continuing with the arrival of Elizabeth Vásquez, the band’s sensational new lead vocalist. The decision to break new ground in a changing musical landscape by bringing her brooding, sultry voice to the foreground of the group’s sound signals a courageous sense of adventure sorely needed in a field dominated by faceless male counterparts.
The album "Behind the Sorrow" was released in Europe in February 15th, 2010 and will be launched in Japan in April 28th, 2010 through the Italian label "Coroner records". In 2010, to support the record "Behind the Sorrow", Six Magics launched an European tour that kept the musicians on the road for nearly two months. They played in different countries like Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands and Turkey.
Last year Six Magics started working on their new studio album which will be released in 2012.
In 2012 Six Magics performed a spectacular show on La Cupula Theater, Parque O’Higgins. It was a powerful two-hours duration and full crowded concert. The band also performed three songs of it’s new forthcoming album. The concert itself was also full filmed and recorded for a possible live DVD in the future.
The most popular live-guitar event in Chile will take place next April, 14th, and Six Magics will be part of this, joining Whitesnake’s awesome guitarist Doug Aldrich in a spectacular festival.
Six Magics will perform in "The Metal Fest Chile 2012" in April 28th, 2012. Six Magics and another 10 chilean bands will be part of this mega-concert to be held in Movistar Arena venue, in Santiago. The international acts are: : Anthrax, Testament, Venom, Kreator, Obituary, Blind Guardian, Volbeat, Misfits, Fear Factory, U.D.O., Exodus, Destruction y Forbidden.
