Grand Magus were formed by vocalist Janne â€˜JBâ€™ Christoffersson and bassist Foxy who cut a couple of demos with drummer Fredrik â€˜Trisseâ€™ Liefvendahl before issuing a split 7" with Spiritual Beggars, who JB would later join. This secured them a deal with Rise Above who released their self-titled debut in 2001, follow-up â€˜Monumentâ€™ in 2003 and most recently â€˜Wolfâ€™s Returnâ€™ in 2005. Trisse quit the band in 2006 and was replaced by Seb who will make his recording debut with the band on their as-yet-untitled fourth album which is due just in time for Bloodstock. Although the bandâ€™s sound has evolved over the years and theyâ€™ve often distanced themselves from the â€˜stonerâ€™ tag, the combination of influences on â€˜Wolfâ€™s Returnâ€™, taking in everything from Judas Priest to Candlemass, make them one of the best traditional metal acts to emerge in recent times. Get set for a bludgeoning comeback.
