Grand Magus “Sword Songs” artwork!

Vikings, Metal, and Bongs! “Swords” probably fits in place of “Bongs” a little better, but hey, we all have our weapon of choice! Viking and Metal fans everywhere, hold your swords high—for today, Friday the 13th, Swedish Heavy Metal combatants Grand Magus deliver their brand new release “Sword Songs” (Nuclear Blast Records)! Larger than myth, Grand Magus are real warriors, defenders of steel & forged in iron, and they’ve turned this Friday the 13th into a joyous celebration of Metal! With 9 epic tunes of riffs, melody, and power, Grand Magus is proving yet again that if early Vikings didn’t rock, they sure as hell do now! Just as their 2014 release “Triumph and Glory” easily made the annual Urb Thrasher Flower Hour Album Favorites list, “Sword Songs” is an epic followup that’s sure to have band members JB, Fox, and Ludwig sailing from afar to conquer your land soon.

Grand Magus!
