Arizona sludge/desert metallers HEALING MAGIC is pleased to unveil their alluring new video for “Wolf Coven.” Now playing at Metal injection, the track comes by way of the band’s Volume I: Fire full-length, scheduled to drop on May 27 via Blood Blast.
HEALING MAGIC are a natural force of raw sludge, splicing fuzzed-out riffage, ritualistic rhythms, and colossal heaviness amidst drifts of smoke and psychedelics. The duo, hailing from the deserts of Arizona, take influence from the majesty of the mountains, mesas, and spirit of the Canyon State, imparting the music with a blazing desert vibe. Each song is like a trip into a dark fantasy world, a world teeming with a sense of despair, urgency, and unknown dangers. Truly a unique sound, rife with crunching overdrive that is only complimented by subtle melodies and epic song structuring.
Notes band riff-writer and storyteller Igor Amadeus Cavalera of HEALING MAGIC’s latest single, “Join the ‘Wolf Coven!’ Blast this heavy track off of our newest album Volume 1: Fire. An awesome journey into the mystic desert accompanied by the jaw-dropping illustrations of Costin Chioreanu. Howl at the full moon!”
Metal Injection hails the “straightforward and chunky new single,” noting, “The video for the single comes alongside animations created by the legendary Costin Chioreanu (Enslaved, Ihsahn, Paradise Lost, etc.) at Twilight 13 Media, should you want to catch some trippy visuals between headbangs.”

Cavalera wields his guitar and array of amplifiers like a powerful mage, blasting out sonic magic through his speakers while also commanding incantations, shrieking like a witch, and chanting in ways that will leave you entranced under his spell. Drum and cymbal destroyer Johnny Valles smashes and crashes like a hammer wielding warrior, delivering earth shattering drumbeats with ease, and holding down rhythms that shake the very building he’s in. The duo together is a true marvel to witness live, and nearly impossible to believe that so much raw noise and energy could come from just two people. A magic all their own.
Lyrically, the band is centered around the story of The Healer and The Tyrant, in an ever-constant struggle between light and dark. Volume 1: Fire is the first album in the epic saga which will unfold in the years to come. Dealing heavily in mysticism, adventure and pain, the words are sure to strike a chord with you as much as the music.
Volume 1: Fire was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin and will be released digitally with physical editions to follow at a later date. Find digital preorders at THIS LOCATION.
