Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh, also abbreviated as MDK, is the third studio album by French progressive rock band Magma, released in December 1973. MDK is Magma's most famous and stylistically acclaimed record; and although it has not become a commercial success, the band continues to present this 'classic' or 'symphonic rock' material to audiences. The French edition of Rolling Stone magazine named this album the 33rd greatest French rock album (out of 100).[3] In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked the album 24th on its list of the '50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time'. Magma's original recording of MDK was refused by their record company at the time, it was later published as Mekanïk Kommandöh (recorded in 1973, released 1989).
