Magica started in February 2002 as a project of Bogdan Costea, guitarist (at that time) of a local gothic band. The reason for starting this band was Bogdan''s desire to play the music that he likes: heavy metal & melodic rock. The recordings for the 1st album (having more of a demo purpose) started in spring 2002. After 2 months of intense work, the material was ready! 12 power melodic heavy metal songs, in the vein of Rhapsody, Nightwish, and Helloween, which show the high potential of the band. The album, entitled "The Scroll Of Stone", tells the story of princess Alma - tricked by a demon, she loses her soul, and so her quest begins... she has to find the scroll of stone, the only thing powerful enough to break the demon''s spell. "The Scroll of Stone" was produced in Romania by Sigma Records and was well received by the media, in spite of the lack of promotion. . The second album, "Lightseeker", has been launched in October 2004 in France through Underclass Music .Magica''s first video, "Bittersweet Nightshade", was ready on February 10, 2005. Magica has been featured in the famous "Metallian" and "Rock Hard Magazine". In 2006 the band had the pleasure of touring Europe opening for After Forever and Nightmare, Apocalyptica and Leaves Eyes .
