Grand Magus – The Hunt (white or red vinyl) import from Germany

 

“2LP white or red vinyl in gatefold incl. 3 bonus tracks and poster”

“In the form of “The Hunt”, Swedish riff gods GRAND MAGUS report back impressively! With their sixth studio album and likewise Nuclear Blast debut, the metal purists manage to better their highly celebrated 2010 masterpiece “Hammer Of The North” easily. The trio from Stockholm has always consequently sticked to its own path of evolution without ever leaving behind the gathered experiences – they’ve never casted off their early days’ pumping groove nor their love for epic doom or extreme metal. These trademarks are now being paired with traditional riffs and melodies that rock in the same qualitative league as Judas Priest or Dio have. “The Hunt” was produced by Nico Elgstrand, who managed to put an authentic 70s mark on the record. The guitars roar, the rhythm front around the new drummer Ludwig (Spiritual Beggars and others) grooves as hell and JB outgrows himself as far as the vocals are concerned. Thus, the trio has created a phenomenal and impressive heavy metal opus! GRAND MAGUS was founded by JB Christofferson (vocals/guitars) and Mats “Fox” Skinner (bass) in 1996. Two years later, Fredrik “Trisse” Liefvendahl joined them on the drums and the combo released two demos. In November of 2001 the self-titled debut album – obviously inspired by the late creative period of bands such as Black Sabbath or Deep Purple – was put on the European and US market. “Monument” (2003) and “Wolf’s Return” (2003) followed and could reap rave reviews in the press. In the course of this, the guys refined their style and distinctly started turning to stronger metal influences without denying their roots. With “Iron Will” (2008) the trio gained perfect scores in the specialist press again and was able to win the Metal Hammer Germany sound check. The Swedes’ latest output “Hammer Of The North” turned out to become a milestone within the band history. Once more the heavy metal heroes were overwhelmed with lavish praise and won the sound checks of both German Rock Hard and Metal Hammer magazines. Furthermore, the record vaulted the band to rank 42 of the German album charts. Now the Scandinavians go the extra mile with “The Hunt”. In May, the motto will be: Break cover, go in and win – the wolves are back!”

 

Kreator – Phantom Antichrist (yellow vinyl) import from Germany

 

“Yellow 180g 2LP in gatefold, incl. two lyrics sheets and DIN A2 poster. 45 RPM.”

“Being around for nearly 30 years, Germanys biggest export in thrash metal, KREATOR, have proven to be persistent, innovative and an unstoppable force. Miland “Mille” Petrozza have inspired generations of young bands with their early efforts like “Endless Pain” (1985), “Pleasure To Kill” (1986) or “Extreme Aggression” (1989), but also made statements by their most recent outputs “Violent Revolution” (2001), “Enemy Of God” (2005) and “Hordes Of Chaos” (2009). Enter 2012, KREATOR have finally found a new home with Nuclear Blast Records and deliver the most diverse, melodic and intense album of their entire, long running career. Produced at renowned Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden with famous producer Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, AMON AMARTH, SYMPHONY X), “Phantom Antichrist” comes with a clearly transparent, powerful and thundering sound. The classic and impressive artwork which makes the package just perfect was created by Wes Benscoter, who had worked with the likes of BLACK SABBATH, DIO and SLAYER before. Musically as well as lyricwise “Phantom Antichrist” showcases everything KREATOR stand for, even taking it to the next level. Be it pure KREATOResque thrashing madness, solos that actually aren’t only there for statistics but can really be described as what they are and make you wanna shred your personal air guitar all night long, or the most epic moments you’ve ever heard on any KREATOR album – this is what you’ve been longing for the past 3 years and we can only aggree with Mille, who states: “It will blow everything away, the “Big Four” have released in the past few years! Prepare to get your face ripped off!”
