Heavy Metal




The Swedish heavy metal combo Grand Magus are the ultimate proof that hard work and an unwavering self-belief are the key to success. Founded in 1999, the Stockholm natives toiled in the shadows for years. It wasn’t until the 2010 release of ‘Hammer of the North’ that the trio finally got a foothold and 2012’s ‘The Hunt’ was the prelude to 2014’s breakthrough record ‘Triumph and Power’. Their mix of heavy metal, doom and stoner is conquering Europe and sooner or later the US are bound to capitulate as well. Their successful UK tour with co-headliners Enslaved in September 2015 was the next step up. Their most recent outing dips back into their doomier beginnings without abandoning the heroism and anthemic quality of their earlier work. Their only previous appearance at GMM2016 earned them scores of new fans; this time, without the element of surprise, expectations will be much higher. (#GMM19)
