Magnitudo 8 is an italian one man band composed of Elfire.
Elfire, after having collaborated and carried out different extreme metal projects, gets satisfaction from composing melodies and black metal songs.
Indeed, he wrote songs, demos and albums and took part in concerts making himself heard in the old-style black metal scene.
In 2007, he had experimented with electronic music and by means of special synths, drum machines and softwares, he started creating electro-ambient music in his study.
But this period didn’t last very long because he discovered new sounds on the way and, remembering its origins, he broadened his works giving life to Magnitudo 8, his power-noise-industrial band.
The noise crept more an more into Elfire’s mind who started feeling a desire to express himself with noisy and distorted electro music. In 2008, the Magnitudo 8 band created
an art demo composed of five pieces to download free on e-mule.
Thanks to this system to make itself known, the band gained the attention of some djs that put some of its songs on the playlist.
In the meantime, Magnitudo 8 gave character and professionalism to its sounds and in 2009, it signed a contract with X-Records that placed its trust in the band and decided to help it in the production and the distribution of the first album entitled “Lucro Chimica”.
Elfire with Magnitudo 8 and its new electro sound, wants to express its own negative vision of the word and of humanity, of atrocity and accidents that embrace our minds and make us feel pain.
