Magnum - Lost On The Road To Eternity


Recommended Posts



From blabbermouth.net:

British hard rock band MAGNUM will release its new album, "Lost On The Road To Eternity", on January 19, 2018 via Steamhammer/SPV. It will be the twentieth studio recording by the group led by founding members Bob Catley (vocals) and Tony Clarkin (guitar) since its 1978 debut, "Kingdom Of Madness". At the same time, Clarkin, Catley and bassist Al Barrow are set to introduce their current lineup, featuring new additions Rick Benton (keyboards) and Lee Morris (ex-PARADISE LOST; drums). Benton joined the MAGNUM camp in December 2016 to replace longstanding member Mark Stanway, while Morris took over from Harry James only a few months ago.

"Lost On The Road To Eternity" contains eleven new songs, among them the first single "Without Love" and a duet by Catley and Tobias Sammet on the title track, a kind of artistic thank you by the EDGUY and AVANTASIA frontman in appreciation of Catley's guest stint on a number of Sammet's releases.

The release will once again be complemented by Rodney Matthews's atmospheric cover artwork as well as a total of four live bonus tracks on the CD digipak version ("Sacred Blood - Divine Lies", "Crazy Old Mothers", "Your Dreams Won't Die" and "Twelve Men Wise And Just") recorded at MAGNUM's 2017 performance at the Leyendas Del Rock festival in Alicante, Spain.

"Lost On The Road To Eternity" will be made available as a digipak version including a bonus live disc, 2LP colored version, download and stream.



The track listing for the effort is as follows:

CD 1

01. Peaches And Cream (4:54)
02. Show Me Your Hands (5:45)

This is a lot better than I was expecting after the last few Magnum albums, which all contained a few good tracks here and there, but were very one paced affairs. The new one starts out really well, for the first half anyway ''Storm Baby' especially' is a superb track and one of the best they have written in a long time. From track 6 on wards it starts to drag a litlte towards the end, although finishes on a high with 'King Of The World'. Bob Catley sounds excellent too, the best he has sounded in a long time and special  note to the new Keyboard player, who plays some lovely stuff. No album of the year for this then, but a good, solid return to form and definitely an album I will return to once in a while, especially for the aforementioned 'Storm Baby'
