Magnum, who regularly breached the Top 40 of both the singles and album charts in the Eighties and early Nineties, came together in the Midlands in the mid-Seventies and released their debut album 'Kingdom Of Madness' in 1978, followed by 'Magnum II' in 1979 and their first live album 'Marauder' in 1980. During this period they toured relentlessly with the likes of Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult and Judas Priest.
1982's 'Chase The Dragon' album was the first to go Top 20, and was accompanied by a sold out UK tour. 1983's 'The Eleventh Hour', 1985's 'On A Storyteller's Night' and 1986's (Roger Taylor produced) 'Vigilante' album all fared similarly well but it was 1988's 'Wings Of Heaven' LP which really broke the band into the mainstream, going gold, breaching the top 5 of the UK chart and spawning three top 30 singles - 'Days Of No Trust', Start Talkin' Love' and 'It Must Have Been Love'. During this period the band regularly graced the stages of such venues as Hammersmith Odeon and major UK Festivals as Reading and Castle Donington.
Since then the band have been prodigious in their output and 2018 saw the release of the new album titled " Lost On The Road To Eternity" which has been widely acclaimed and charted throughout Europe and beyond.
The reviewers all over Europe hailed the album with Spanish, Swedish and British media describing it as a masterpiece receiving the highest marks everywhere. The single made the BBC 2 playlist in January, was played there regularly and MAGNUM were even invited to do a short acoustic live set.
The start of 2018 has seen the band on an extensive UK and European tour and WinterStorm were absolutely delighted to secure them as headliners for the Friday night.
