February 15 – Review by Officer Nice – WHITE MAGICIAN – DEALERS OF DIVINITY (Cruz Del Sur / Sonic Rendezvous)

From out of the USA I received the debut album of White Magician. Despite their EP I have never ever heard a word about this band. Actually, nowadays it became quite impossible to discover all the new releases. And while many band were or are seeking for some new boundaries, other bands found shelter in the old Cult sound. Ghost and Greta Van Fleet are very good examples and let me say White Magician is the same kind of band, looking for some retro-sound into their music.

If you like that kind of old school sound, like you’re listening to the old Alice Cooper or Blue Öyster Cult, you might like this formation as well. During the entire album there’s the presence of that typical Seventies sound. You’ll witness some fantastic guitars on this release, I really adore the acoustic parts, some fantastic kind of flamenco can be heard. It proves how good these musicians actually are. The technical played percussion is worth checking this one out as well. You will hear good vocals and an album in a quite mystical atmosphere. There’s a special mood around here and that makes this album kind of special. READ MORE…
