“Black Skies,” a live version of a classic song opens up Magnum’s new compilation album and it is a ferocious opener. All guts and glory.
“On A Storyteller’s Night,” another live take of a classic shows the band doing what they do best. Being insanely epic and groovy throughout the song and throwing in some intriguing differences.
“Dance Of The Black Tattoo,” hits hard, thundering down the streets of time, bringing confidence and chaos to the world. Slowly building into Magnum’s own Kashmir.
“Born To Be King,” roars and demands to be heard. Brimming with confidence and chaos, the song unleashes a new groove and shows where the band get their influences from.
“No God Or Saviour,” rolls through, turning on a knife’s edge and bringing some serious epicness to the fore, pressing in on all sides and demanding to be heard.
“Twelve Men, Wise and Just,” performed live goes to a whole new level, slowly winding through the catacombs of time.
“Madman Or Messiah,” is simply profound and epic.
The album is out on 8th January via Steamhammer/SPV.
