On 'Monument', the sophomore full-length from Grand Magus, we see this Swedish doom-metal trio truly finding its way. Having explored the more rocking end of the doom genre on their self-titled debut, this recording takes a far heavier and grumpier turn with more of a sludge-doom approach. That's actually an understatement, this is possibly the heaviest slab of doom I've heard in ten years. Forget Electric Wizard. Yes I really just said that, forget Electric Wizard, because this album makes 'Come My Fanatics' sound like The Wallflowers. This is full-on creeping, crushing doom like you've never heard. A monstrous guitar sound, massive riffs, skullrattling rhythms, and JB's roaringly powerful but melodic and soulful voice all amalgamate into one indescribably heavy creation. The arrangements are superb, when they aren't harnessing the pure energy of slow-motion doomy groove such as on 'Summer Solstice', they are churning out huge song structures which build into enormous God-like crescendos. Check out a song like 'He Who Seeks, Shall Find' and you'll know what I mean. And the riffs, by The Gods, THE RIFFS! This band has found the sanctity of the almighty riff and made it holy again. These riffs sound like they could be the b*stard love-child of Black Sabbath and Solitude Aeturnus, and if that means nothing to you then you've got some heavy-metal homework to do. And let's not forget the conceptual content, when it comes to the lyrics this also qualifies as Viking metal which is nothing short of a breath of fresh air. Songs like 'Valfadher(Chooser of the Slain)', and 'Ulvastalt(Vargr)' exude far more Nordic ambience than you'll hear in ten strait hours of Norwegian black metal. Lines such as "You can betray me, the pain won't break me. Here I stand I'll never fall.Read more ›

Unpretentious, Heavy, Full of cool riffs. Yes, Grand Magus does it again. As good as the self- titled Grand Magus. 100% better than any so called new rock bands. Shades of Black Sabbath, yes, but these cats have theyre own style. I'm glad there's still bands who havent forgotten what it means to rock. Buy this CD. Thanks for your consideration. Stomp

Originally released in 2003, Monument is the second album from Swedish masters of heavy/doom metal Grand Magus. The band had not yet made their pivot to more melodic traditional heavy metal at this point, so Monument was very much in keeping with the sound of the debut.

Grand Magus had such a (pardon the pun) monumentally heavy sound early on. Old school Sabbath meets Electric Wizard meets Candlemass. JB Christoffersson’s powerful vocals add yet another layer of heaviness to the thick riffs and lumbering rhythms. Even if you prefer the newer, faster Grand Magus sound, it’s hard not to be in awe of the sheer heaviness and power of songs like “Summer Solstice,” “Chooser of the Slain” and the 10-minute monster “He Who Seeks…Shall Find.”

Monument is another masterful doom metal album from Grand Magus, and is a must-have if you’re a fan of the band. Fans of bands like Black Sabbath, Spiritual Beggars, Electric Wizard, Candlemass and The Gates of Slumber should also give this album a go.

Edition Notes: Metal Blade reissued Monument in 2010. The album was not changed in any way, nor is there any bonus material.
