Influenced by artists such Gorham and Robertson, Coverdale, Bob Daisley, Frehley, and Led Zep, Magick Touch exist in that rich ‘n’ rewarding middle point between hard rock and heavy metal and finesses it with a truly…magickal touch.
Magick Touch are a power trio – with the emphasis on POWER – from the southwestern coastal town of Bergen, Norway. The band formed in 2014 and released their debut album, Electrick Sorcery, through Edged Circle in 2015. The album went on to reap worldwide acclaim for its simple-yet-profound pleasures.
As the trio encompasses at least two singers and three songwriters, Magick Touch is almost like getting several bands for the price of one. Even more so than their celebrated debut, Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire plays this out with absolute (and absolutely addicting) aplomb.
HK Rein – guitars and vocals
Chris Ottesen – bass and vocals
Baard Nordvik – drums
The vocals are characterful indeed, blending into slick harmonies on infectious choruses whilst Rein’s wah-drenched solos are splendidly delivered. Once again, this is that rich ‘n’ rewarding middle point between hard rock and heavy metal, and Magick Touch finesse it with a truly ‘magickal’ touch.
In these times where trends seem to come and go on an almost monthly basis, sometimes it’s never more satisfying than to simply sit back and rock out. And that’s what Magick Touch make you do. Bow before Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire and salute the eternal glory of the riff!
