Hypnotic Heavy Metal Band, Spell, Releases New LP ‘Tragic Magic’
“Music is magic, and Spell is a spell. Fundamentally, it is a forum to make our dreams come true” – Spell bassist/guitarist/vocalist Cam Mesmer.
Fantastical heavy metal band Spell released its new LP, ‘Tragic Magic‘, on October 28 via Bad Omen Records. Featuring ten tracks of prime, progressive heavy music flooded with mesmerizing atmospheres, ‘Tragic Magic‘ sees Spell take a decidedly grittier lyrical approach, leaning less into escapism, while confronting real life challenges of modern times. Striking cover art (Frenzy of Exultations by Wladyslaw Podkowiński, 1863) featuring an angelic woman riding a frenetic horse, portends the palpable potency that the record promises.
