Somehow I missed that Grand Magus was releasing an album this year otherwise it would have made my anticipated list for sure. Look for the new album entitled simply ‘The Hunt’ to be released on May 25th via new label Nuclear Blast. If you’re unfamiliar with Grand Magus they are a band out of Sweden that have been around for about 10 years and this will be the 5th full length. Their style is somewhat of NWOBHM and stoner metal but even that is a simplistic description. I guess what I need to do is show a video from the last album ‘Hammer of the North’ so you can get a good idea of what these guys are about and why I like them.
