Magnus. What a cool fucking band name. I have no clue who are what a Magnus means, but it's still a cool fucking band name.

I haven't the faintest clue about Poland's Magnus other then whenever reffered to them, they do get praise for being one of the first extreme metal bands from that area and holy shit do they sound a lot like Sarcofago. Nowhere near the down-right violent side, but definately everything else including bad sound production, inaudiable guitars, and all the other characteristics we know and love about international bands.

The lead singer is obviously the one thing that stands out because at some parts he does sound a little bit like Wagner Antichrist and then "Schizophrenia"-era Max Cavalera. Really gruff vocalist. When not sounding like a demented madman, he does his high falsetto screams which are in everyway total metal cheese. It's funny but it's metal.

Already the album starts off with vocalist Rob Bandit wailing like a goddamn banshee non-stop. Most of the songs, if put back-to-back sound pretty much the same in terms of ultra-fast blackened-Thrash. This is an album you put on the stereo and listen to for shits and giggles and just plain fun.
