Download Festival 2016: Grand Magus Interview

On the Zippo Encore stage at Download Festival come, perhaps, one of the scariest rock bands we’ve ever seen… Grand Magus!

The three-piece heavy metal band from Sweden is comprised of JB, Fox and Ludde (well, that’s what they prefer to be known as). They draw influences from the likes of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Nazareth and basically: doom.

They’re latest album ‘Sword Songs’ was released last month and charted at #30 in Germany. Their eight studio album since their debut self-titled release in 2001, their amalgamation of blues, hard rock and heavy metal makes them a popular fan favourite.

Download Festival 2016: The Raven Age Interview

The Raven Age is a big name at this year’s Download Festival!

Performing on the Maverick Stage this afternoon was probably the smallest stage they’ve played in a while, after all they’re currently touring with tonight’s headliners Iron Maiden!

The English band were formed by guitarists Dan Wright and George Harris (son of Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris). Although currently they only have a self-titled EP out (2014), all eyes are on them as they attempt to become the biggest metal band in the world.


Alex Irons interviewed the band backstage at Download Festival 2016 and they also gave us an exclusive tour announcement!

Monster Truck are a Canadian band who have been on the circuit since 2009.

After releasing two EPs in 2010 and 2011, their debut album ‘Furiosity’ charted at #13 on the Canadian Charts – narrowly beaten by their follow up, 2016’s ‘Sittin’ Heavy’ which charted at #6.
