Ex-Magnum drummer Kex Gorin briefly agreed to join the band, before changing his mind. Hard Rain eventually recruited the brothers Rob and Al Barrow as drummer and bassist, respectively, Sue McCloskey for backup vocals, and Paul Hodson on keyboards.
The next album, When the Good Times Come , was released in This album was stylistically different from anything Magnum had released, and received mixed reviews from critics.
The new name was actually detrimental to the sales, as many buyers expected to find the albums in the M-shelf rather than the H-shelf in music stores.
The albums would eventually be filed together with Magnum albums. Clarkin and Catley discussed whether they should revert to the name Magnum, but ultimately decided against it.
It was around this time that Catley launched a solo career using various songwriters, including Gary Hughes of the band Ten.
His first solo album, The Tower , was released in November , followed by Legends a year later and a live album in-between.
Additionally, Catley participated in several projects as a guest vocalist, the first of which was Jabberwocky by Oliver Wakeman and Clive Nolan in early Catley disagreed with Hard Rain's musical drift away from the classical Magnum sound, and soon became more focused on his solo career.
In September he decided to quit Hard Rain, marking the end of a working relationship with Clarkin that dated back to Clarkin briefly continued Hard Rain with Sue McCloskey replacing Catley as lead vocalist.
They performed with this lineup at a charity event in January , but Hard Rain never released any additional new material.
A short quiet period ensued, followed by rumors of a Magnum reunion. During Magnum's split, one of Clarkin's friends found a live recording from in his loft.
Clarkin, fed up with the many unofficial compilations that had been released without the band's authorisation, was initially reluctant to authorise the release of this old material.
He eventually changed his mind, and Days of Wonder was released in April In March , Catley revealed that Clarkin had suggested a reunion, apparently after his manager Derek Kemp had convinced him that giving Magnum a new shot was worth it.
Catley and Clarkin had hoped for a complete reunion of the pre lineup, but only Mark Stanway ended up returning to the band.
While Mickey Barker was committed to a different band, Wally Lowe had retired from the music industry. Al Barrow , who had been a member of Hard Rain, continued as the band's bassist.
Rob Barrow was invited to stay on as the band's drummer, but he had already decided to quit the music industry. Clarkin's manager's assessment proved to be correct; while in the band had difficulties getting a record deal, this time they got several offers.
They ultimately signed a deal with SPV Steamhammer in September The album consisted partly of songs originally written for Hard Rain; according to Catley, it was a mix of Magnum and Hard Rain.
They recorded the album without a drummer, before hiring Thunder drummer Harry James to complete the lineup. The band then went on a UK tour in December.
The next album, Brand New Morning , was released in This album represented a final departure from the Hard Rain style; years later, Catley would comment that "Brand New Morning [had] really [been] the first new Magnum album".
Clarkin commented:. The break since the middle of the Nineties was definitely necessary for me. Since the end of the Seventies, in fact since we embarked on the preparations for our debut recording Kingdom of Madness , not a single month had gone by in which I didn't work for Magnum, composed for the group, or at least thought of them permanently.
For almost twenty years, all my thoughts had revolved around the band. I needed a break to clear my head and to be able to devote myself to the band again with renewed energy.
When James returned to Thunder, Jimmy Copley became a full-time member of Magnum. The band toured in April to mark the 20th anniversary of On a Storyteller's Night ; they released a live DVD of the Astoria concert entitled Livin' the Dream , which also included a short documentary and promotional videos from throughout the band's history.
Magnum completed work on a new studio album, Princess Alice and the Broken Arrow , which was released on 26 March ; this also marked the return to the cover artwork by Rodney Matthews , absent since The album entered the UK Album Charts at No.
It also reached No. Magnum toured the UK and Europe in May Harry James played drums temporarily for half the tour as Jimmy Copley had taken ill.
In , former drummer Kex Gorin was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Gorin had a kidney removed and underwent radiotherapy and steroid treatment, but died of the disease on 21 December This was a charity event in aid of former drummer Kex Gorin's family.
Magnum then played a two-hour set of old and new material. These shows were recorded for Wings of Heaven Live album, which was released in March The album was dedicated to Kex Gorin.
On 15 June , Magnum released Into the Valley of the Moonking on SPV. Stylistically, the album was considered a logical follow-up to Princess Alice ,  and it became the first Magnum release to chart in Switzerland since Rock Art.
The next studio album, The Visitation , was released in January ,  and was notably rockier than previous releases.
The band toured in support of the album, which charted at No. On 30 August, Magnum announced a new compilation remix album Evolution celebrating the last 10 years on SPV GmbH since their reformation in The album was released on 11 November in Germany and 14 November in the rest of Europe and the UK.
The album featured 10 songs from the band's previous five studio releases, eight were re-recorded, remixed and remastered, as well as two new songs.
The band released their 17th studio album On the 13th Day in September The band toured in Europe to promote the album in late which charted in many countries across Europe including the UK at No.
Soon after releasing and touring On the 13th Day Magnum revealed that Clarkin was back in the studio writing and recording new songs via Facebook on 4 April Escape From the Shadow Garden was released in Scandinavia on 19 March , and on 21 March for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, 24 March for the rest of Europe, and 1 April for the US and Canada.
Conversely, the only track that didn't pique my interest was the very successful single from this album it still doesn't. How Far Jerusalem, On a Story Teller's Night, Les Morts Dansant, All England's Eyes and The Last Dance were for me the stand out tracks and still are.
I can't believe it was 35 years ago that this was released! Magnum also have the personal accolade of the band I've seen live the most - 10 times and potentially counting Review by Warthur Prog Reviewer.
In addition to being the album where Magnum's distinctive cover art aesthetic really came together, Chase the Dragon is also the album where their sound came into its own.
In retrospect, perhaps was the perfect year to release something like this, with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal wave riding high and the neo-progressive rock movement bubbling up through the underground.
It's not that Magnum quite belongs to either of those movements, but they seem to occupy a unique musical space all of their own which hovers in a somewhat AORish region partway between the two styles.
They have enough synthesisers, fantasy lyrics, and occasional instrumental flair to put one in mind of neo-prog, without ever quite leaning enough on prog influences like Uriah Heep or embracing long, complex song structures sufficiently to really be any flavour of prog, neo- or not.
Likewise, whilst they have a boisterous energy reminiscent of the NWOBHM and traditional heavy metal which are also fields not averse to fantasy lyrics , they don't quite go heavy enough to cross the boundary between hard rock and metal.
If they did, it feels like they'd land somewhere near Dio. On paper, it feels like such an act would end up falling between two stools, failing to be sufficiently one thing or the other and pleasing nobody.
Instead, Chase the Dragon is a delightful album which will have something to appeal to fans of the lighter ends of traditional heavy metal or neo-prog alike - and if you happen to dig both, as I do, you'll probably absolutely love it.
Soldier of the Line is an excellent album opener, one of those songs which will have you reaching for the "back" button when it ends so you can listen to it over and over again despite yourself, and the rest of the album retains a high standard throughout.
This was apparently a make-or-break moment for Magnum, due to the shaky reception of Magnum II throwing them off-kilter a little; in retrospect, they pulled out exactly the album they needed to produce here.
You can count me as a freshly-minted Magnum fan on the strength of this album alone. Review by kev rowland Special Collaborator Honorary Reviewer.
But when I realised they had a new live album out, then of course I had to get it. Guitarist Tony Clarkin and singer Bob Catley are of course still there, without them both this could never be Magnum, and bassist Al Barrow was working with them when Magnum stopped with Tony and Bob forming Hard Rain and has been in the band ever since.
I am sorry to see Mark Stanway left in after many years of service, as I always felt he was a much under- rated keyboard player, but here he has been replaced by Rick Benton while drummer Lee Morris joined in when Thunder's 'Arry felt he could no longer commit.
By now surely everyone knows what they are going to get from a Magnum concert. They have cornered the market in British pomp rock, and the way the keyboards and guitar link are really like no other.
Tony has never enjoyed playing solos, so these are few and far between and are far slower and more melodic than one would expect from a guitar hero, as instead he provides the crunching riffs everyone enjoys so much.
Just listen to the crowd joining in during 'How Far Jerusalem', not letting even an extended bass solo slow them down too much.
This was their first gig in Birmingham for a while and was at the end of a date tour, so both they and the crowd were on fire.
