Steelwing Announces Tour In Support Of Grand Magus

Swedish metal band Steelwing announced a tour in 2012 in support of Grand Magus. The tour also features Bullet, Skull Fist and Vanderbuyst.

The official announcement reads:


"The year 2012 starts right off with a real sensational tour: GRAND MAGUS! These stoner-riff-metal kings from Sweden, who put themselves on the throne of several genres with their latest effort 'Hammer of the North,' will be playing Germany, Belgium, France, Holland and Switzerland. Riffs to bow down to! GRAND MAGUS not only kill on record but also on stage. Watch out for a massive wall of sounds, which will blow you away!

"With them on tour will be their fellow countrymen BULLET and STEELWING. BULLET, who just recently signed a deal with Nuclear Blast, are considered to be one of the high hopes of the dirty, fresh and new Hard-Rock wave. STEELWING will amaze you with their guitar playing a la Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, a real eyecatcher onstage and definitely one of the new young crusaders of heavy metal! They will be releasing their brand new album for the tour and live they are in best shape after being on tour with bands such as Blind Guardian, Accept and Sabaton!

"The line-up is completed by the positively insane SKULL FIST from Canada, who were already on tour with BULLET this year and also played the Power of Metal tour just a while ago. Old-school metal which couldn´t be more authentic and real! Their current longplayer „Head öf the Pack“ is out now and was highly acclaimed by both press and fans.

"Dutch VANDERBUYST were a true phenomenon in the underground-rock scene for some time and have now surfaced to take your souls! Live one mighty combo and a killer openening band for a killer tour!

" 'Frost and fire! How much metal can you take? Delivering swedish steel with an iron fist in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France and Belgium. The Magus is thrilled to have our brothers from Bullet with us on this venture and we promise that no prisoners will be taken!' GRAND MAGUS

" 'We are absolutely stoked to hit the road again after the recordings of our second album, and we couldn't ask for a better line-up for this tour - it's gonna be a true heavy metal assault on the senses! We will of course play some of the classics from our first album but we'll also play a couple of new songs for all you metal marauders to raise your fists and scream along to!' STEELWING

" 'The re-fistening!' SKULL FIST
