Mystical, magical, and still heavy-as-hell crew Spell will release their new album, Tragic Magic, on October 28 via Bad Omen Records. If you don’t have time to binge the new Rings of Power trilogy, get lost in the fantasy for just a few minutes with their latest track and video, “Fever Dream.”
Spell vocalist Cam Mesmer says of the track:
“Fever Dream” comes directly from the most evil and frightening moments I’ve experienced in the depths of illness and sleep. These things may not make sense in the light of day, but once they take hold you have no choice but to follow their twisted path. Deep within nightmares and sleep paralysis, I have conflicting desires: first the urge to shake myself and escape, but also a second, deeper instinct—to give in to the feeling and allow it to conquer me completely to see where it will take me. This song represents your darkest subconscious, urging you to allow that evil inside of yourself and give it the agency to take you somewhere new, somewhere unholy. Now go back to sleep…”
The track takes elements of prog, psych, darkwave, and classic rock and fuses it into something beautiful and despairing. Check it out below:
