BIOGRAPHY

GRAND MAGUS was founded by JB Christofferson (vocals/guitars) and Mats “Fox” Skinner (bass) in 1996. Two years later, Fredrik “Trisse” Liefvendahl joined them on the drums and the combo released two demos. In November of 2001 the self-titled debut album – obviously inspired by the late creative period of bands such as Black Sabbath or Deep Purple – was put on the European and USA market. “Monument” (2003) and “Wolf’s Return” (2003) followed and could reap rave reviews in the press. In the course of this, the guys refined their style and distinctly started turning to stronger metal influences without denying their roots. With “Iron Will” (2008) the trio gained perfect scores in the specialist press again and was able to win the Metal Hammer Germany sound check. The Swedes’ latest output “Hammer Of The North” turned out to become a milestone within the band history. Once more the heavy metal heroes were overwhelmed with lavish praise and won the sound checks of both German Rock Hard and Metal Hammer magazines. Furthermore, the record vaulted the band to rank 42 of the German album charts. 

Now the Scandinavians go the extra mile with “The Hunt”. In May, the motto will be: Break cover, go in and win – the wolves are back!

The seventh studio album “Triumph And Power” was unleashed on January 2014. This album contains the song “Triumph And Power“ which is also available as a separate digital single now.

The incoming new album “Sword Songs” is the 8th studio album and will be released on May.
The new songs are faster and more aggressive than on “Triumph And Power” – and we have also included some more extreme and harder stuff. I’m convinced that there are some future classics on the disc!”
