Grand Magus are a heavy metal band from Stockholm, Sweden. Initially forming in 1999, the band had developed a sound in a similar vein to doom metal with influences ranging from Bathory to Black Sabbath to Iron Maiden. Despite this the band is commonly associated with the doom metal scene due to their work with Rise Above Records for nearly a decade. Their current sound more closely follows a traditional heavy metal sound starting with the acclaimed Wolf's Return in 2005.

Grand Magus have toured Europe extensively throughout the years with eight studio albums under their belt.
