GRAND MAGUS Releases New Studio FootageFriday, 25th October 2013
Swedish metal champs GRAND MAGUS have released the first in a series of video clips detailing the recording process for their forthcoming new album. The band entered the studio last month to begin recording the follow-up to last year’s The Hunt for an early 2014 release via Nuclear Blast. The band is once again working with producer Nico Elgstrand and engineer Staffan Karlsson (ARCH ENEMY, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS) at Studio Sweetspot in Halmstad.
Commented GRAND MAGUS drummer 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. 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 entire 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. 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!”
