Volume I: Fire, the new full-length from Arizona sludge/desert metal outfit HEALING MAGIC is out TODAY on Blood Blast!
Hailing from the deserts of Arizona, HEALING MAGIC — vocalist/bassist/ guitarist Igor Amadeus Cavalera and drummer Johnny Valles — take influence from the majesty of the mountains, mesas, and spirit of the Canyon State, imparting their music with a blazing desert vibe. A natural force of raw sludge, splicing fuzzed-out riffage, ritualistic rhythms, and colossal heaviness amidst drifts of smoke and psychedelics, 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.
Lyrically, HEALING MAGIC 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.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin, Volume 1: Fire is available TODAY on all digital platforms at THIS LOCATION with a physical edition to follow at a later date.
