Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 16th September 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Swedish riff lords Grand Magus have recently entered the studio to begin recording for their follow-up to last year’s crushign album The Hunt. With demoing and pre-production complete, the recording process can begin. Once again, the band have picked as their producer Nico Elgstrand, who produced the last album; The Hunt. The band are also joined by the engineering force that is Staffan Karlsson, at Studio Sweetpot in Halmstad, who has worked with Arch Enemy  and mixed the most recent record for Spiritual Beggars. Drummer Ludwig “Ludde” Witt comments:

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 2 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.

The band also added:

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!
