Grand Magus have made the song Forged In Iron – Crowned In Steel available to stream.

The track is lifted from the album Sword Songs, due out on May 13. It can be pre-ordered on iTunes and on limited edition vinyl via Nuclear Blast.

The album is the follow-up to the Swedish band’s 2014 effort Triumph And Power.

Vocalist JB Christofferson says: “We put all of our sweat, blood and tears into this new album and I think that you can hear that. For me, Sword Songs is the best Grand Magus album ever.

“The new songs are faster and more aggressive than on Triumph And Power, and we have also included some more extreme and harder stuff. I’m convinced that there are some future classics on the disc.”

Grand Magus previously issued a lyric video for the track Varangian. They’ll appear at a string of European festivals, including Download.
