“On The 13th Day” follows the success of “The Visitation”, which charted at #19 in Germany, #46 in Sweden, #55 in the U.K. and #56 in Switzerland at the end of January 2011. “On The 13th Day” also picks up where “The Visitation” left off, boasting 11 soaring, brand new totally epic rock songs packed with hook-filled choruses, glorious flowing melodies, luscious keyboards and flowing guitar licks. Right from the opening track, “All The Dreamers” (set to be the new “Sacred Hour”), you get an instant feeling that this album has something very special to offer. “So Let It Rain”, the first single to be taken from “On The 13th Day”, will without a doubt soon be officially classified as “classic,” while “Dance Of The Black Tattoo”, which, from the moment the first drum beats crash out of the speakers, mesmerizes from start to finish.

One month after the release of “On The 13th Day”, MAGNUM will set off on a 31-date European tour.
