SpellBook release new single “Goddess”

York, Pennsylvania vintage proto-metal purveyors SpellBook will release their sophomore full-length, “Deadly Charms”, this September via Cruz Del Sur Music.

The follow-up to 2020’s “Magick & Mischief” was recorded in February at Developing Nations in Baltimore, Maryland, with producer/engineer Kevin Bernsten. The album also marks the SpellBook recording debut of their two new guitarists, Les Yarde and Patrick “Patty” Benton.

According to Zinn, the lyrical themes on “Deadly Charms” lean much heavier on horror and reality than the fantasy and fiction approach found in “Magick & Mischief”. The David Thiérrée (Behemoth, Mortiis, Ihsahn)-created artwork capably showcases these topics.
