Battle Magic is the third album by Bal-Sagoth, released in 1998 on Cacophonous Records. It is the last album to feature Jonny Maudling on drums, who following this album would go on to concentrate fully on playing the keyboards.

The band were awarded one full month to record, much of which was spent on the orchestral arrangements. The keyboards in "Blood Slakes the Sand at the Circus Maximus" alone took six full days to complete. [1]
