2012 Favorites: #9 Grand Magus – The Hunt

9. Grand Magus – The Hunt

Another Swedish import, kicking ass and taking names. One of these days, I have to go to Sweden and find out what they put in the water that creates so many astounding metal bands. Grand Magus have been honing their metal chops for years and years, with each album refining their sound until they’ve become red hot ingots of “Yeah!” (a little Robyn Hitchcock nod there; I had to find some way to squeeze him in this year). Their new deal with Nuclear Blast meant that The Hunt got North American distribution, and I hope it will get them the fans they deserve. Was hands down the absolute best driving music I heard all year. That’s important in the big state of Texas.
