Grand Magus is the debut full-length album by Swedish heavy metal band Grand Magus. The album was released on November 5, 2001 in Europe and in the United States. In 2006 the album was re-released with two bonus tracks.
The band originally formed in 1996 by former Cardinal Fang vocalist Janne “JB” Christoffersson, bassist Mats “Fox” Skinner and first drummer Iggy under the name ‘Smack’. Early 1998 saw Iggy depart the fold and replacement Fredrik “Trisse” Liefvendahl join as a response to an advert for the vacant drummer position. A change in musical direction dictated the fabled name change to the more apt Grand Magus. A demo was recorded and on its merit received a positive response. This spearheaded an appearance on the Waterdragon Records compilation, Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (2000) and a split 7″ LP with fellow countrymen Spiritual Beggars (who JB would later join on vocals 2002-2010) on Southern Lord Records.
Debut album Grand Magus hit on November 5, 2001, via Rise Above Records (who would release the band’s first four albums). This album continues to contribute to the band’s cult status with doom and heavy metal fans today.
