MAGUS is Leslie Low (Humpback Oak / The Observatory / Snake Blood Union / Meddle / ARCN TEMPL) and Mark Dolmont (Meddle / Vancouver Electronic Ensemble).
On their debut album, "Sun Worshipper", chunky guitar riffs awake from primordial sludge and hefty drums tap to the beat of a primeval pulse, summoning the powers of ancient spirits and riding on psychedelics. Magus music thrives on repetition to induce hypnotic, trance-like states.
"Sun Worshipper" will be officially released on CD by Ujikaji Records on Sep 16, 2011. More info at ujikaji.net
