GRAND MAGUS Commence Recording New AlbumFriday, 13th September 2013
GRAND MAGUS have commenced recording the follow-up to 2012’s The Hunt. The Swedish riff lords have enlisted Nico Elgstrand to produce the forthcoming album and is responsible for the production behind The Hunt. Staffan Karlsson at Studio Sweetspot in Halmstad will be the engineering force for the new album and has worked with ARCH ENEMY, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS in the past.
Commented sticksman Ludwig “Ludde” Witt: “The time has come! Warriors! Things have been quiet around here recently, you know us well enough to know that we haven’t been sitting around idly though… We have finished writing our new album and we enter the studio! Monday the 2nd of September marks the start of our new journey. The result will be something to behold. That is a promise. You want something heavy? You’ll get it. This will be our strongest album to date.”
Added the band: “The Magus have been busy bees with an elaborate pre-production phase, meaning that we have demoed all the tracks and it certainly pays off now. The recordings proper started off this Monday and we already have some killer basic tracks brewing. We are working simultaneously on several tracks to ensure flow and proper impact. It feels like it’s going to be something extremely powerful this time… The drums are killer and with the perfect touch we’ve learned to expect from Ludwig, there will be a wall of ferocious guitars and grinding bass guitar that will shake the bowels. Among other things we worked today on HOLMGÅNG which has a lot of riffing going on and we think the guitar sound is the best we’ve ever had on a recording. Pure power!“
