It’s been less than 2 years since MAGNUM’s last album "On The 13th Day" day was released and already the band is gracing our ears with a new release! "Escape From The Shadow Garden" is an album full of great melodic tunes and some serious heavy riffage.
“Unbreakable” is straight ahead melodic rock with a bombastic edge! It’s a great collection of some truly unforgettable tunes proving that British musicians can do this style of music just as good as the Yanks and the Scandinavians! I hope to hear more from these guys as this strong debut promises good things to come from a new addition to the ever growing ranks of home grown AOR!
