Spellcaster - Under the Spell Review

back to reviews

Artist: Spellcaster

Album: Under the Spell

Released: 2011

A mixture of styles and genres: Speed Heavy Metal


Al last there is something faster than classic Heavy, you can even headbang after the intro. Well, we would like to bring to your attention the band called Spellcaster wit their debut album 'Under the Spell'!
This band represents US Speed/Heavy of the 80s, the style, which approved itself long time ago, and which the bands like Agent Steel (first of all!), Helstar, Liege Lord and many others gave and keep on giving to us.
Naturally, what US Speed/Heavy of the 80s without outstanding screaming vocals? It is quite the thing here! Vocals a-la John Cyriis (early Agent Steel) just make us to forget that it is factually a modern band, and not young outrages from the 80s without a care in the world, who can have hold on any music.
And what about the guitars? Everything is OK here as well, we have enough versatile solos, which perfectly get along with the style chosen by the band.
Generally the music is often faster than mid-tempo, but the faster is the music of this band, the faster is heartbeat, the more you want the album to play without stop.
So, the band is ready to compete with the originators of this music, who do not play like this anymore, and these guys do play!
