Magic Circle – “Journey Blind” LP
Boston hardcore dudes known for playing in The Rival Mob, No Tolerance, Stone Dagger, Innumerable Forms, Doomriders and Battle Ruins expose their inner hairy rock beast alter-egos – offering up, on this their second album, released in 2016, another healthy dose of Black Sabbath, Trouble, Pagan Altar and Saint Vitus-influenced metal. Utterly convincing, and flawlessly executed. Bizarre, but this is the real deal. Hardrock for the hardcore.
