Grand Magus  

Grand Magus is led by one Janne Christofferson (better known as JB), who also fronts the mighty Spiritual Beggars. While the Beggars are more in the Kyuss camp of stoner rock/metal, Grand Magus opts for a bluesy, stoner-laced doom vibe, heavy on the early Black Sabbath riffing and tempos, with JB's gruff, forceful vocals blending perfectly with the music. There aren't a lot of surprises here, but these guys certainly pack a punch, and perform this style flawlessly.
