Grand Magus Recruits New Drummer

Swedish riff-lord, Grand Magus, has announced the departure of drummer Sebastian "Seb" Sippola, who has left the band for personal reasons. The band will replace Sippola with Ludwig “Ludde” Witt (Spiritual Beggars, Firebird, Shining) in the wake of the recording process of the band’s upcoming release, "The Hunt."

Commented Witt, “I'm very happy to announce that I, Ludwig Witt, am the new drummer of Grand Magus. I've known [guitarist/vocalist] JB for over ten years and I've been a fan of Grand Magus since day one, so it's great to be on board. At the moment I'm learning all the classic Grand Magus songs and I get a huge buzz from playing along to songs like ‘Kingslayer’ and ‘Like The Oar Strikes The Water’ so I can't wait to get out and play the stuff live together with the new stuff from our new album, The Hunt. See you on the road.”

Sippola leaves Grand Magus on good terms, and says he’s excited to hear The Hunt once it’s completed. “It took a load off my mind that Ludwig was chosen because he is a friend of mine,” said Sippola. “By the way, honestly and objective: In my opinion Ludwig is the best replacement for me because he already knows? JB and Fox [bass] and he exactly knows which demands the drumming at Grand Magus will make on him. They will be a great team and I'm really looking forward to see them live ?- though I have no idea, how my reaction will be in this situation.” More...
