GRAND MAGUS HAMMERS US


Grand Magnus is starting to soar amazingly! Let’s admit it, since their self-titled 2001 debut album, the power trio kept on releasing real treasures : Monument, Wolf’s Return, Iron Will and last but not least, Hammer Of The North. They all have their share of memorable riffs and songs. So, even if the doom side to their music might have faded a bit through time, almost disappearing on the latest album, the consistency in the quality of their material deserves a round of applause. There’s no surprise in seeing JB and his pack climbing step by step, and signing with the prestigious Roadrunner Records. JB is confident and truly believes in Grand Magnus, the band he founded with bassist Fox. He’s confident to the point of leaving the – though amazing – band Spiritual Beggars, refusing to compromise when it comes to his baby.

We had a little chat with Janne “JB” Christoffersson – frontman and vocalist extraordinaire – hoping to hear, amongst other stuff, about this turning point in Grand Magnus’ career.

Spiritual Beggars en mission Apollo


Ça y est, Grand Magus signe chez Roadrunner, c’est le début de la gloire, la bière qui coule à flots, les tavernières faciles, les courses de chien de traineau sur les fjords, etc.

JB jubile et quitte les Spiritual Beggars, qui d’ailleurs lui ont bien servi pour faire grimper sa notoriété : le tube « Killing Time » en 2002 a, en partie, permis d’orienter les regards vers le chanteur et son groupe Grand Magus. Michael Amott et sa bande, dépités d’avoir perdu leur pépite sont alors allés se faire voir chez les Grecs. C’est donc Apollo Papathanasio, chanteur chez Firewind, qui intègre le poste vacant. Non mais sans blague ! Ils vont arrêter de briser nos rêves les mecs de Firewind en remplaçant toutes nos valeurs sûres ?
