Label: Bad Omen Records
Hypnotizing heavy metal band Spell will release its new LP, 'Opulent Decay', on April 10 via Bad Omen Records. Featuring ten tracks of prime, progressive heavy music rife with crepuscular atmosphere, 'Opulent Decay' paints an aural vista where moonlit melody, strident heaviness and potent romanticism collide to startling effect.
Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, yet divining their art from the realm of nocturnal visions and fantasies, Spell have already proven themselves mighty chroniclers of the more supernatural quarters of the heavy music sphere. Recorded at Little Red Sounds studio in New Westminster, B.C., 'Opulent Decay' is an emotionally charged psychic travelogue wreathed in mysticism. The album embraces harmonic guitar heraldry while also showcasing a band as adept at essaying a hymnal acapella piece like the beguiling "Ataraxia" as they are the wistful and melancholic "Dawn Wanderer", the pastoral-tinged and progressively slanted "Primrose Path" or the catchy and barnstorming title-track.
