Swedish behemoths Grand Magus have the uncanny knack of effortlessly fusing bluesy classic hard rock emotion, with the unashamed spirit of balls out heavy metal. This is achieved with a titanic groove and finesse, which is then ploughed deeply and gloriously into a sub nadir pit of bleakest doom. The end result is a volcanic mutation of bombastic proportions, spewing out the words ‘true metal’ with a contemporary fire that makes ash of all it’s bad hair styled pretenders. Leading the crusade is JB, a pure visionary whose soulful vocals & passionate lyrical themes relate to strength of spirit, determination and individuality. The lyrics and sentiment literally bleed from the man with an overwhelming sense of conviction.
