Naxatras is a hard psychedelic rock band from Greece, formed by John Vagenas, John Delias and Kostas Harizanis. They play a warm psychedelia full of fat grooves, dreamy melodies, heavy riffs and trippy guitar solos all with the vintage touch of the 70's. They have been developing their sound since 2012, and finally recorded their first full-length album at Magnetic Fidelity, Jesus I. Agnew being their sound engineer and consultant, who contributed his in-depth knowledge of analogue recording and the independent music industry. Only analog equipment was used in the recording/mixing/mastering stages of the album. Their debut album "LP", which was released in 2015, became one of the best selling releases of their genre internationally and is already considered a classic. In 2016 they released their second full-length album "II" as well as an EP, once more recorded fully analog and performed live. In the year 2018, their album "III" was released.

The band has developed a reputation for high-energy live performances combining elements of psychedelic/progressive rock, stoner, funk, jazz and oriental music with a psychedelic video wall to accomplish full stimulation of the senses. In summer 2015 they went on their first tour playing 5 countries in the Balkans. Since then they toured all over Europe and the Balkans, as well as the middle east, playing in more than 10 different countries and many festivals.

In 2017, they released the single "All the Stars Collide Into a Single Ray" and recorded their third full-length album, using similar fully analog and live techniques. "III" was released in 2018.

This is a proper high-quality master-grade product, recorded on 1/4" ATR Magnetics master tape stock, using Telefunken M15A recorders and reproducer, at 15 ips, CCIR EQ, 0.75 mm track separation, 355 nWb/m reference fluxivity. Approximately 65 minutes in duration, this release consists of two full reels of tape with metallic flanges of anodized blue aluminium and artfully handcrafted boxes. Naxatras have succeeded once again in surpassing themselves, releasing an album containing more than an hour of highly original and authentic psychedelic rock, reflecting their increased level of experience through more complex compositions and remarkable performances! Considering that they actually performed their music live to analogue tape, with no technical assistance, it is easy to understand why they do not do multitrack recordings: They simply don't need it, because they already sound splendid when performing live.

Fully analogue mastering and media production facility located in Kilkis, Central Macedonia, Greece. The floating wooden construction, housing the main mastering room, offers an accurate acoustic environment, where no subtlety can remain hidden. Together with our exceptional fidelity monitoring system, it acts as an audio microscope, capable of revealing detail that few will ever hear, since the sonic information in our space extends far below and far above the human hearing range. In fact, our entire audio signal path is capable of retaining an extremely wide range of frequencies to ensure, that even the highest-fidelity recordings or even experimental research work would not be harmed by our system. The main mastering room is kept at a constant temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, to ensure that the sensitive electro-mechanical equipment living inside it, will always operate at optimal conditions.

The entire facility is powered by batteries and a special, dedicated electrical generation and distribution installation, feeding all the equipment with stable, clean power, completely isolating the sensitive audio chain from the grid and its associated mains power inadequacies. Apart from our state-of-the-art mastering laboratory, Magnetic Fidelity also offers a dedicated tape editing suite, analog media production room, several different "Live Rooms" for our Direct-to-Master recording service, as well as a cosy lounge with a museum-grade collection of historic audio equipment and a library featuring a rich bibliography on subjects such as electronics, vacuum tubes, audio, mechanical engineering, magnetic media, disk cutting, etc.
