GRAND MAGUS was founded in 1996 and worked under the banner of SMACK until the band changed its name. In their over 20 year career, the band from Stockholm, Sweden, has been eternalized in the Metal history and looks back on a treasury full of all-time Heavy Metal anthems. Their self-titled debut album »Grand Magus« (2001) started to stir up the underground and is now considered to be a cult favourite. At that time, they played Doom Metal/Stoner Rock in the way it's meant to be. But over the years, GRAND MAGUS introduced a penchant for classic Heavy Metal which combined with their inherent groove became the band’s signature sound – the first signs of this can be found on »Monument« (2003) and »Wolf’s Return« (2005).
Yet the breakthrough was their 2008 work »Iron Will« that took the fans' heart by storm. In addition to the countless live shows, including a tour with legends ELECTRIC WIZARD and CATHEDRAL, it played a key part in the bands prominent rise to the forefront of the genre. »Hammer Of The North« (2010) continued with this momentum and the band toured with other scene legends: MOTÖRHEAD and Doro Pesch. The entry into the German album charts was inevitable. The same can be said for the three records that followed »The Hunt« (2012), »Triumph And Power« (2014) and »Sword Songs« (2016) – all albums that belong in any great record collection. It’s safe to say that the same can be said for GRAND MAGUS’s latest opus »Wolf God«.
Swedish heavy metal powerhouse GRAND MAGUS regrets to inform that they decided to cancel their European tour scheduled for March/April 2022.
