    Magni - Supernova



    Hometown: Reykjavik, Iceland
    Age: 28

    Magni: Boarding school is usually a place where kids get serious about school, conduct, or rebellion. In the case of Magni, he got serious about music- and then some.

    Born in 1978 in a small eastern Iceland town, the powerful pop singer started a band at the young age of 11 and by 15 had already performed with numerous bands on stage. But it was at the aforementioned boarding school (Eidar) where he took advantage of available musical facilities, spending as much time as he could playing the music that would so dictate his future.

    From there he sang in the band Shape, playing various spots in East Iceland and releasing an album in 1997. In 1999, Magni made the significant move to frontman for the band A Moti Sol--subsequently becoming one of the biggest pop acts in Iceland. With A Moti Sol, Magni now has six albums (two of which went gold), hit songs, gigs galore, duets with other Icelandic pop and rock stars, and various other notable projects to his immense credit. When we said serious about music "and then some" we meant it

    Is "Magni" a phrase kind of like "Fabu"?

    He looks kind of like a creature of the darkness...

    Pop singer hey? Okay, it says powerful so I'll wait before I rant about what does a pop singer does in a rock show. Not only in a rock show but a band with Lee, Newsted and Clarke.

    Okay. He's not to my taste. At least for THIS show. But he's not THAT bad. Just wrong.

    Then again, maybe it would help if we understood Icelandic? Anyone? Bueller?

    That peppy little song wasn't really the kind to display (or not display) power though. Maybe he CAN be powerful on a real song instead of bouncy goofy tunez.

    He sucked. Bad. He seemed surprised that the audience wasn't into him. I hope Iceland has more credible artists in the works than this guy.

    Magni was a worse choice.

    There are all kinds of jokes we can make about a lack of Magni-ficence and getting no Satisfaction from him though. So that's good at least.

    We do, but they wouldn't go on a reality TV show.
