SPELLCASTER – Under The Spell
Portland, Oregon’s Spellcaster keep up the fine mold of old school power/traditional metal with this debut album “Under The Spell”. Basic street level production, searing guitars a la Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Wild Dogs, and Malice and a vocalist who’ll croon melodies one moment then reach for the dog whistle scream the next give songs like “Chainsaw Champion”, “Power Rising”, and “Nite Of The Hellbeast” plenty for the veterans to appreciate.
A five piece who haven’t left the confines of 1982-1986 metal, but who cares when the songs deliver. Tailor made for rivet heads and iron mongers worldwide. Scream, headbang, and windmill away to all the air guitar worthiness.
