WHITE MAGICIAN Signs With Cruz Del Sur Music - New Album 'Dealers Of Divinity' Due This Fall

WHITE MAGICIAN band

Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of Detroit, Michigan metallers White Magician.

 

The label will release the band’s first full-length, “Dealers Of Divinity”, on November 20.

 

The deal with Cruz Del Sur is an excellent opportunity brought about by a decision to reach out to some larger record labels,” says the band’s consigliere, Victron Power El.

 

“The amount of time, care, sacrifice and effort invested in this latest piece of music deserved to reach a wider audience and my guess was when Cruz Del Sur heard the material their reaction was the same as mine when I first heard the band’s 2016The Pledge’ EP many years ago: Holy hell, this is what heavy metal rock and roll is all about!”.

 

Recorded over many nights and weekends between May 2018 and December 2019 in Lansing, Michigan by George “The Extortionist” Szegedy, “Dealers Of Divinity” is classic metal at its finest, defined by the band’s deft use of mystical twin guitar interplay and epic, ’70s-tinged song arrangements, which carefully bridge WHITE MAGICIAN’s vast influences, namely , BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, KING CRIMSON, ANGELWITCH, ASHBURY, MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND and YNGWIE J. MALMSTEEN, to name a few.

 

According to Victron Power El, Szegedy’s knowledge and expertise “pushed this recording to be better than ever possible before” due to his experience tracking more rock than metal bands. “This album is more everything that’s been hinted at in previous releases,” notes Victron Power El. “However, it is more developed, more precise, more over-the-top. The EP was a launching point, the rehearsal single was the bridge and the split were the rendezvous. Now it’s time for the extravaganza of magic and power. The majesty of rock and roll will compel you once the album is in your hands!

 

One thing that stands out is the carefully planned and executed vocals in each song,” he continues. “Something that The Great Kaiser has always strived for finally coming to fruition the way he has envisioned. Another thing that comes to the forefront is the way the band really comes together to deliver a full proper sound — something that has improved with each release but becomes quite evident on ‘Dealers Of Divinity’. You can tell that time was taken and under the expert tutelage of George Szegedy, the WHITE MAGICIAN boys didn’t settle, but hit the tape till they got it right!

 

WHITE MAGICIAN’s debut EP, “The Pledge”, was released in 2016 via Dystopian Dogs Records. The “Antipathy” single followed a year later. The band released a split with THE GREAT KAISER’s WHITE MAGICIAN (not to be confused with this WHITE MAGICIAN) and PRELUDE TO RUIN in 2018.
