Ancient Spell / Press

“In my opinion Ancient Spell are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, doom and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Under Your Spell" "Beyond The Gates" and "Black Flame Ritual". 8/2 out of 10.”

“The heavy metal fires stoked on the West Coast of the USA decades ago are being kept well lit it seems. LA’s Ancient Spell bring together the best of the early ‘80’s Californian thrash scene and doom it all up for a nice heavy offering. Having only formed in 2012, the band have crafted a solid album in “Forever In Hell”. It is a rock solid slab of heavy metal. The notable thing is the album’s consistency. Clocking in at around 35 minutes, there’s no real filler, just a well crafted collection of tracks full of intent and purpose. “Forever In Hell” is worth getting a hold of and I, for one, will be keeping an eye out for Ancient Spell in the future.”

“This beast of a release has everything going for it and that means A) It's a damn fine collection of songs that are well-structured and tech-savvy B) The musicians involved with "Forever In Hell" are all top-tier C) "Forever In Hell" features a perfect production where everything shines and D) The combination of traditional heavy metal, death thrash and doom metal on display here is arguably one of the best I've ever heard!”

“This quintet has an enchanting blend of doom, death and heavy metal within the seven songs featured on their début CD, “Forever In Hell”. And the songs are tastefully written, arrange and played with the highest level of precision. There is so much talent hidden on this gem of a release, it’s sure to take the listener at least a solid two to three listens to appreciate the unholy darkness and soul possession rituals found here.”

“Right out of the gate they filled the room with brutal riffs, powerful drums, a tag team of killer vocals, beautiful dual guitar harmonies, blistering leads, and fat bass. Combine all that with an energetic stage show & revving up the crowd to show their horns, made it a great interactive experience that made the night unforgettable. All in all, it was evident that they had a lot of fun, which the crowd picked up on & joined their enthusiasm.”

“Los Angeles doom metallers Ancient Spell have announced a Sept. 8 release for their new album, Forever in Hell, via Minotauro Records. The full-length is their second behind a 2013 self-titled, and a newly unveiled teaser finds its tracks rife with metallic lurch and alternatingly thrashy and doomed impulses playing out in darkened, grim atmospheres.”
