Magnus formed in the late 90's and played regularly until the untimely passing of founding guitarist/vocalist Merk Crandle, prompting the breakup of the group. Several years later the other two original members came back together, recruited a new guitarist, and eventually released a self-titled album in 2011 in tribute to Crandle. The style is a rather intense and intriguing form of dark progressive semi-thrash, with some intricate riffing and some great pounding drumming from Andrew Tipps. The album is largely instrumental, but some of the vocals featured are of founding member Crandle, whose vocals were retrieved from an earlier demo.
