Yes, Magma is familiar to me. I have three albums of them,
and once tried to make sense of Kobaian. Many Kobaian words
sound pretty much like German, but ... And it is written using
some cool diacritics, such as a little crown atop the letter |s|.
There are several other cases. Enya is known for singing in
Sindarin on the LotR movie soundtrack, and apparently later
used another conlang (as discussed here two weeks ago).
There is also a Sigur Ros album titled _()_ with lyrics in
a conlang. Not to mention the many, many songs in Esperanto.
