"This slick Scottish gang have obviously devised a time-machine to transport them back to the legendary Sunset Strip to soak up the good-time rock 'n' roll vibes of days gone by! Utterly Fantastic" - Kerrang Magazine 2005

- Kerrang! Magazine


"The Ayrshire band with a name like a Bond baddie are almost there - 2007 could be the year they get their break. Kerrang magazine called them ''utterly fantastic'' in 2005, when they played at the magazine's Unsigned band final. Since then, they've signed to Horsepower Records and been recording their debut album Rock 'n' Roll - which is now available online. A great rollicking bar blues band - while they sound like classic 70's rock, there's something different abount them - a sliver of punk/new wave that makes them appealing to indie rock ears, as well as your heavy metalists. 'Bite the Bullet' is a mixture of AC/DC and Aerosmith, while 'Stick to Your Guns' has ZZ Top's buzzsaw riffs and the melody of new wave act 999. 'Shotgun' Suzie is high octane jet-propelled fun. Magnus Blaze, like James Bond, will keep the ladies up all night." - Daily Record (The Razz) 2006 - Daily Record

Bio

In January 2005, the band recorded their debut album, ‘Let’s Talk Rock’ (renamed Rock ‘n’ Roll’ on release) at CaVa Studios, Glasgow. The album was produced by Geoff Allan, who has collaborated with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Belle & Sebastian and Mogwai.

Magnus Blaze performed at the Camden Barfly, August 2005, competing in a competition hosted by Kerrang Magazine, searching for the best unsigned act in Europe. Through eight intense weeks, the band was whittled down to the ‘top three’ from over four thousand acts.
