Black Magdalene is an organic darkwave ensemble, whose soundscape of haunting middle eastern tones and rhythms luxuriously navigate between dark, atmospheric percussion and beautifully intricate instrumentation.
Based in Eugene Oregon, the group was formed Beltane 2011 by Star Wrey of Splendor & the Resistance and Victor St. Petersburg of Defeating the Purpose.
