BAND SPELLBOOK

ALBUM DEADLY CHARMS

LABEL CRUZ DEL SUR

OUT Sept 23rd, 22

OUR RATING 86/100


SPELLBOOK releasead their sophomore full-length, Deadly Charms, on Sept 23rd, 2022 on CD and digital formats via Cruz Del Sur Music, while the vinyl version will be released on Oct 7th, 2022.

The follow-up to 2020’s Magick & Mischief was recorded in February at Developing Nations in Baltimore, Maryland, with producer/engineer Kevin Bernsten.

This new album marks the SPELLBOOK recording debut of their two new guitarists, Les Yarde and Patrick “Patty” Benton.

The lyrical themes on Deadly Charms lean much heavier on horror and reality than the fantasy and fiction approach for Magick & Mischief.

After a short intro, the first shot is REHMEYER'S HOLLLOW, a lilting song with first Sabbath's influences, with dark shades that enrich their sound, before an inspired solo part.

In GODDESS to remark 70's atmospheres, while PAMDEMONIUM shows more structure, growing and exploding in a gorgeous solo.

A touch of Sabbath, first Nugent drops and gourgeous solo parts..definitely one of our favorite.

HER SPECTRAL ARMIES shows alternating instrumental and thoughtful moments, while THE WITCH OF RIDLEY CREEK is a real gem, mixing heavy rock with 80's metal elements.

They go on with DEADLY CHARMS, maybe a step behind, and excellent NIGHT OF THE DOPPELGÄNGER.

OUT FOR BLOOD is the last shot that ends in the best way this brilliant album.


TO RECOMMEND WITHOUT HESITATION!
