Magick Mountain – Weird Feelings
Published: 1:20 pm, October 29, 2020Words: Charlotte Brennan.

Magick Mountain - the project from Leeds staples Lins Wilson, Tom Hudson and Nestor Matthews - have pieced together colossal riffs, entwining harmonies and fistfuls of wild, distorted energy on their debut album, 'Weird Feelings'. With tales of infinite space, otherworldly escapes, and hazy dreams that weave together the supernatural and the visceral, the Yorkshire band are quickly carving out a place for themselves.

Lead single 'King Cobra' really packs a punch with its chunky, gritty riffs and lightning-speed guitar solo breakdown. The trio are very clever with their lyrical content, and on the surface, this single tells a story of a mythical snake - but if you take a deeper look, you'll find the Yorkshire band are also referencing feelings of anxiety and the battle with inner demons.

'Zodiac' is full of ferocious energy; the combination of heavy riffs and crashing drums played at breakneck speed is both playful but jarring, perfectly encapsulating what this trio is all about. 'Stranger Danger' and 'Colossus' meanwhile are riff-heavy anthems that will cause absolute carnage in a live setting.

'Weird Feelings' is an album full of exhilarating twists and turns throughout its 40-minute runtime, inviting the rest of the world into the band's kaleidoscopic realm of unearthly creations and supernatural power that grips you entirely from start to finish.
